rottedv's projeck "Surflux Turbo" pg 6!!!

Postby droppa » April 15th, 2012, 9:21 am

well guys, this is a different kinda trucks and pickups thread...this is a blood sweat and tears epic build thread.......

narration and pics will follow along as we plan, progress, chop, cut, buy, build, and break.....

so just some insights.....

owner: Imtiaz Ali aka rottedv
cheif engineer: droppa
build crew: Side-B
chassis: RN46 (TAG) 4WD 2DR
cab: LN130
tray: to be confirmed
paint: definitely not bomb-spray
engine: 3L 2.8 n/a, now to be 1KZ-TE
tranny: 2LT 4spd w/od, now 1KZ-TE 4sp w/od
shoes: BFG KM2 32s on 15 chrome 4X4 alloys
wiring:LN130
interior: LN130 dash, steering and fittings with lap seat (3 pers inc driver)
suspension, brakes and diffs remain stock until we driving

so from dat list one can see we basically using a LN130 Surfs cab on the RN46 chassis, with the engine from a LN106 hilux and tranny from a KZN130 surf.....

so far from buy the rottedvan we have removed the eng and 5frwd box and mated the tranny back to the engine, we have removed the Rn46 cab and have jus mocked up the LN130 bare frame, the chassis is rolling and will be soon going to Jeff to do some brackets and welding for us.....



when i touched back on this pic in the vault, ideas started to roll.........

Image


but expect it to be more hard than dis......

yup its a real nice project, but like all will take some time, we trying to push as much and have her up and running as soon as possible, then we will go onto lifting and stuff......

if anyone know Toyota, they will know of all the pickups of yesteryear the were least prone to chassis failure, and this one chassis stand up like man over the years!!!!!!!!!!

no scene man.....


over the weekend we went and bought the bare surf half and brought it home. we took out this old cab, then coupled the tranny to the engine, that was on the ground and was waiting for some correct bolts, the engine and tranny was coupled and was set in place, both engine mounts were connected and tightened up, the tranny mount bracket will have some work to do as the 2LT trans is longer than the 4Y box, thus resulting in driveshaft work to be done too...... so the trans jus resting on a block of wood on the bracket, a temporary hold up.....by now the side b signal was out and more help had arrived....a few more bits were fixed and then later that evening the bare surf cab was moved into place.............

man start to get hungry so we went down by big daddy and lash some gryo..........

Jeff came and looked at the job and is ready to start some fabrication work for us, after that sh may go straight to Poon to complete the cab and then to the electrician to wire up.....

more pics and details to come.....
