The rav4 had a 3fse and a 3sge. I looked at one FD and it looks like it could be 4.9. There are quite a few rav4 fds so its worth looking into at least.

UPDATE!!!

The car is at Ottawa Auto Body, in Hamilton and they've made great progress on it. I'm very excited to get the car home and start re-assembling everything, as well as installing all of the new stuff that I have to put on. I will update that as I'm installing everything. But for now, some progress pictures...

Here is the car the night before it left for a trip to the body shop. I left the taillights and bumper on so that the guys at the body shop could see exactly how everything needed to be pulled back.

Image


Pulling everything straight. The damage was strictly cosmetic, none of the suspension mounting points were moved. Just needed a little tug to get everything lining up nicely.

Image


Then came the annoying, but rewarding part. Hammer and dolling the panels as smooth as possible. Every panel on the car was wrinkled/dented, so they had a lot of work to do. Although it may look like a lot of Bondo, it is a VERY thin layer just to smooth everything out. Apparently just about any car that gets painted needs some Bondo, it is a 24 year old car after all.

Here is how the car currently sits. It's all primed and ready for sanding and final touch ups before it rolls into the paint booth for paint. It has been sitting for a day or so now as is, and the guys at the body shop want to let it sit for the weekend before they begin sanding the primer to ensure that it is good and dry. I'm VERY excited to see the final product and will post up as soon it has been painted. But is is a breath of fresh air to see the car repaired and all one colour, even if it is just primer!

Do note 1990-1991 fwd celica's use thinner and smaller diameter rotors at 255 vs 1992-1993 fwd which use thicker and the 275 rotor which mimics that of an alltrac. I cant verify the ST's of 92/93 but I know GT/GTS do.



That header is gorgeous, wish people around here could make something like that for all 5s people. That thing is legit.

They're coming...

My first event of this season is the June 7/8 weekend, but I hope to have the car out at practice in mid May.

are you going to add a little 3m film to prevent chipping?

Any change you have an idea of your camber curve with the longer ball joint? Also, how long do you think it is from the bearing to the spindle? I am trying to find a way to mock up a spacer to test some readings before the final part gets made.
