Love the car and the progress, will be watching this forward ! :)

The hako you mentioned in first post, was it a red 4 door used as a work / company car ? Was watching it myself, and me and a friend were seriously thinking about taking the trip to finland to buy it.

If it's that one it ended up in trondheim in norway actually, member of "toygarage" that has it. Picked up some toyota parts with a friend, and got to see his hako 😍 only one in norway as i've understood.

Seems like you've got some more of the models in Finland that are super rare and awesome here in Norway ?

Anyways, love the 510 and looking forward to see the result and the way there :)

Yeah we are talking about the same hako. I've heard that there was like 71 of those LHD hakosukas ever build and 47 of those we're sold in Finland. Most of them are in the yunkjard at the moment..

 

Thanks for the great comments! I'll be working in Sweden for the next week so nothing happens before i come back. I have made new floor to trunk and my new tank and inner doorhandles arrived.

I will post more about them when i come back!

Got something done finally.

 

Hi all, I was working with the car allday yesterday and i was planned to get the trunk 100% ready for painting but things didn't go as fast and i expected.

 

I made some reinforcement plates between the trunk and rear seat, this was a first time for me so those pieces ain't perfect but good enough for a race car.

33298964234_20afe709c3_b.jpg

 

Also mentioned that i made the new trunk floor ready, I havent welded it on yet because its easier to work with then trunk when you can sit in the middle of it.

Here's how it gonna look like. That big square is the place for the tank. Im going to weld 3mm thick metal plates on the places where the tank bolts in.

33330239623_a0c5c76287_b.jpg

 

Rear brake upgrade is also getting forward, Im waiting for my friend to get back from his holiday so i can take those parts to him and he can make me

the carriers for the calipers, this is the last chance ! If someone have 3D blueprints for those carriers please help me out to save some money.

33298931534_4a86204cfb_b.jpg

 

So yeah slowly getting closer everyday.. Rollcage is arriving at July. I hope that the bottom, inside and engine bay are getting painted at august so i can get all the suspension and interior parts back to the car during fall and rebuild the engine at winter. All that takes a ton of money so i have to find the balance between working at the garage and at work hah.

Little update, for the last weeks i've been scraping the old undercoat away and now I have only the transmission tunnel to do. My three week vacation starts on Friday so then i finally have the time to make the trunk ready and sand the bottom of the car ready for paint. I have also been working a bit with my daily Audi S3. I use to have polished Rotiform NUE wheels on it but i sold those and bought BBS CH wheels for it. Those wheels are currently at the paint shop and they should be ready today. Gold wheels on blue car cant go wrong!

Hello.

 

Quick update, i'm almost done with the undercoat project.

34455838650_c6e8d813dc_c.jpg

 

Also i've been burning away the old rubber bushing from the suspension parts.

34802630656_6f63ba0656_c.jpg

 

Also the 40liter aluminium tank and new front door handles arrived, i still has to finish the undercoat project atleast from the trunk area before i can weld the new trunk floor in and fit the tank there.

Hi guys.

 

I've been sanding the bottom for the past weeks. The undercoat project is like 95% ready, after that i can sand the trunk ready for the painting and weld new trunk floor in and fit the gas tank in.

 

Got payday next week so i can order the rollgage, meanwhile im going to do the things that i mentioned earlier so when the rollcage comes i can start to fit it in. After the rollcage is test fitted I will paint the bottom and send suspension parts to sodablasting and powdercoating so they will be ready to bolt in when the bottom is painted. So i can get the car back to on its wheels before the winter.

 

My deadline to drive the car again was June 2018, im still hoping the get to it but looks like all the things that i wanna do with the car are too expensive. I will be posting some pics next week when i get the undercoat project 100% ready.

Hello.

 

Finally. About 99% of the undercoat is gone and i dont care about that 1% so much so i could say that the bottom of the car is clean now! 

This took me longer that i expected (like a month) but now its done.

35903398751_e585112c81_b.jpg

35903404861_25052c6c89_b.jpg

 

Also started to clean the engine bay with deleting the battery & washer tank holder.

 

35903428291_2d7270c78b_b.jpg

36037509595_c1c54f6441_b.jpg

 

New trunk floor is also going in. I used sealant to all the reinforcement welds that i did to the trunk before i started to weld new floor in yesterday. 

Ran out of time so its only 70% fitted but i will finish it next time i go to the garage.

 

35227084583_8718312fba_b.jpg

 

So what's been up? I was ordering the rollcage from UK month ago and they told me that the postage will be 350euros. That rollcage cost 700euros so 50% more because of postage was instant no thanks so i'm using the plan B at the moment. I already ordered a full polybush kit and it will arrive in the beginning of august. My friend hasn't had time to make the rear caliper carriers so I might need to try to do them my self or use another company for that. Ones the carriers are done and i get the rear camber / toe adjustment plates I take all the suspesion parts for sodablasting and powdercoating. When suspension parts are ready i need to drop the car back to its wheels and push the car to Finnish race shop so the can make me a rollcage. When the rollcage is done i need to take the suspesion parts off again and then paint the bottom of the car and put all the suspesion parts back. (atleast i get to testfit them hah) 

 

At the moment car looks like this.

 

35866202102_5b3386271b_b.jpg

 

I also bought some motivation parts (not that i needed anymore motivation but still hah)

Momo Protipo steering wheel and momo hub adapter. I'm in love with that steering wheel.

 

35227104233_1b5b3c6c1a_b.jpg

 

Also been planning a lot for the future. Hopefully on September i can send a request to JDM distro for RS watanabe wheels. At the moment im thinking for being 14x7 et3 to all corners but i would like to have wider rims on rear. Can someone show me how 7,5" et0 or 8" et-6 fits to 510? Also most of the plans with the engine are ready and I'm going to start building it while the car is at the shop for the rollcage.

Progress ! 

 

I hope that someone still reads this topic, here's whats been happening since last post.

 

Welded new trunk floor in and made place for the tank. Made some mistake with the measurement so the gas outlet is bit short now.

Will make that a bit longer so i can fit the gas line in.

36036584853_646e11410f_b.jpg

36036571293_2b1dacbb6a_b.jpg

 

While saving money for the gas line parts ive been sanding the engine bay.

36706265431_c320ecc6c9_b.jpg

36011325854_4da069f087_b.jpg

 

Lots of stuff to do before driving this thing again.. but im hoping to see it on its wheels before the end of the year.

My friend has finally started the rear brake caliper brakets and the superpro polybushes arrived. First thing when i get the rear subframe parts back i will take all suspension parts in for fresh paint and test fit the whole suspension.

Hello.
 
It's been a month since last post and it's been crazy.
 
I met Finnish guy who races historic with 510. Words cannot describe how amazing hes car is. BRE red/white theme and L18 engine with Weber50 carbs pushing 180hp from the wheels.
He has given me so much tips what to do and how so I can make my car as fast as possible.
 
And i have also got something done again.
First of all I made the tank fitting allover again the tank is now about 15cm more front than last time and Im also going to pull all the gas lines inside so there's no more holes for AN fittings.
 
36745357503_720bd4afce_b.jpg

Here's how the car looks at the moment
23563904858_d509d072b4_b.jpg

I took the doors and trunk lid away so i get more space for sanding the car inside. Im waiting for some of the suspension parts to arrive
so I can drop it back on it's wheels and take it to the shop for the rollcage.

As you can see I made strutbrace from 200sx strutbrace. I had to drill the center holes bigger, cut it shorter and lower
so it finally fit the 510 but i got it for free so little work didnt hurt. Also test fitted the new BCracing coilovers.
Still a while to put the on the real test on the track hah!

36745382863_73019e2ea8_b.jpg
36706374424_4976aaf0d4_b.jpg

Then I've been buying some nice stuff.

Yes, I bought it from 350km where I live so that's what I drove when it was stock.
I will, thank you!

WHEELS !

 

If I haven't told it earlier i'm a wheelholic, so this is not going to be the first set of wheels I buy for this car.

37696935371_60c5004020_b.jpg

 

So these are 3piece Volk Rays Mesh with magnesium centers 14x6" ET12. 

I'm going to wrap 185/60 Toyo triple eights on these, perfect track day setup!

Still not sure do I re-paint the centers but I'm going to brush the lips and add clearcoat on them.

37696928081_5972dbb7cf_b.jpg

 

Also welded all the "waterholes (?)" and made one more rust fix.

Hello! 

 

At the moment I'm in a bit of a rush.

 

510 is going to rollcage maker in four weeks so that means I have four weeks to get it back on it's wheels. Witch would not be a problem if I would have all the parts.

 

At the moment I'm waiting for front wheel bearings to arrive and I'm going to order new balljoints tomorrow.

My rear control arms are still at my friends CNC shop because he has been busy while doing other things than my brake caliper brackets.

 

So in the next 4 weeks I need to:

 

-Assemble the front & rear suspension

-Weld reinforcement bar under the trunk

-Weld seat fitting bars to passenger side

-Get rest of the suspension parts sodablasted and painted

 

So here's what been happening.

 

Got some of the suspension parts from sodablast / paint, they look so good now!

 

Front subframe & control arms testfitted. All the special spacers will be sodablasted/painted and I'm also going to buy new bolts and nuts.

37647548794_ce0d6d267c_b.jpg

 

Box full of parts ready to be assebled.

26586184899_f6aa11e6c7_b.jpg

 

Swaybar got the "racered" color

38361218081_a355d774bf_b.jpg

 

Yesterday we welded bars for seat brackets to driver side. I don't know if these are FIA spec but atleast in Finland you need to have these kind of bars

for seat brackets (or fit the seat to OE seat holder) if you want to drive in real race.

 

38306671386_e69030bffa_b.jpg

38330822832_32608fb071_b.jpg

 

So yeah this is how the car looks like at the moment, had to test fit the seat with the pedals and steering wheel so we could get it right at the first time.

 

26586205119_ff06640e3f_b.jpg

38306614216_5086395d43_b.jpg

 

That's it for now. Lets see how this turns out in the next four weeks!
