PostSubject: my 87 4runner    30th January 2012, 11:40 pm

this is my 87 toyota 4runner im building slowly and i am mean slowly!!




she don't look the best but shes comin together! welding

she has some rust on the fenders and some on the topper but i am going to do all the body work once summer comes around. bounce
i got the truck from a guy at Moab offroad it came with brand new tires and 3in block in the back. also gave me a "rebuilt" short 22re block, rebuilt head, front cover, brand new starter, a alternator,Harmonic Balancer,oil pan. it sat probably a whole year ,just found out, before i bought it. i bought it knowing it had a blown head in it so first thing was first getting it to run!!

went ahead and took everything off the block!!


then put in a new timing kit and water pump with a new front cover and a couple of hoses, and thermostat. with all new gaskets all round. replaced some injector o-rings and of course went a head and panted the value cover and plenum banana






got bored one night while drinking and decided to paint my hood. it was first time ever doin any kind of car painting but i think it turned out pretty good



MORE TO COME!!
