So never being really able to afford anything during my Ps, a ke70 owner called me and said he wanted to sell his (I noted it about 6 months prior) without much hesitation I bought it for $400 with rego !

It was rusty, had a busted window, clutch cable was f^%ked and it was dirty as hell ! but it was mine.

The car stayed standard for a while with just cut springs and dragways, I had saved up for my first set of wheels, Jordain ( a member on here) had a set of 14x7 -0 and 14 x6.5 SSR MK2 for sale with tyres for a great price, bought them put them on lowered it some more. Then recived a madhouse front lip as a gift from Sergio and Claudio ! ( thanks guys). Whilst owning it I had replaced some bits and pieces and had a couple of small streeting accidents along the way, it was all a learning process. The car now has full 86 front struts, shocks, brakes hubs, deciding whether I should do a coilover set up, but then again I want to just to a good spring, shock set up and save for a s13. Heres a currently photo of the car and how it looks !

I like the VR, looks pretty clean!

Hows it feel going from like 150kw to 40kw?

Aleks.B
24-11-11, 03:55 PM
Yeah the VR was really clean, always vacuumed it every week and a wash every 2! Love that car (mind the stockies on the rear, were only there cause needed new tyres on the rear and had those lying around) , haha I love driving the KE70

There's two KE70's at Pick n payless, one of them has the front end gone, interior is good though and rear end is good. Seems to have aftermarket suspension and a larger than usual diff aswell.

shows what a good clean will do for a dirty car haha might have to give mine a good wash before the meet tomorrow :) come say Hi i'll be in the beater looking S13 with 15" gold ssr meshies on the back and 17's on the front :)

by the way milk crate with pillow on it to sit on while washing the car is the most genius idea ever! To one up it you should put wheels on the crate.

Meaning they'll be 4x108, and won't fit your car. E30-E70 Corollas are 4x114.3 :/
Hope you didn't pay much for them...

If you read a couple of posts up they are off a escort which have the same stud pattern as a ke70.Not off a gemini. Plus I still havent got them yet going on friday to try them on and pay.

CSB, but Gemini's are 4x100. So not very relevant to the topic at hand.


these came off a escort!

This is what I was referring to. So yes, I can read.

MkI/MkII Escorts have a 4x108 PCD. KE70's have a 4x114.3 PCD.

So yeah, I wouldn't be buying them if I were you :)

Edit: my one of my uncles has several MkIII's, so I'm not just talking out my arse :)

Aleks.B
06-12-11, 09:25 PM

I dont mind it either but Id like it to go lower as the wheels are very wide with a good offset so will have some stance, till later on when I have mo moneyz to stretch some tyres!

hey bro. nice ride! any plans for respray?

Thanks dude, yes later on though, first just want to neaten it up fix all the rust, but its on the list. I sorta dont mind the colour how it is now.

Yes it did! it was really really dirty when I got it. Plans for now just a nice little daily/cruiser/slider next on the list is lower it more fix the rust then do the little cosmetics! want to try and do a lil bosozoku style with the car( not the whole exhaust style thing as in stretched tyres.

So im here in my bed hungover watching home and thought Id update this. So about 4 weeks ago me and a couple of mates decided to go for a nice drive late at night in the wet and whilst driving down to meet them at the servo my clutch cable decided to snap! lucky I wasnt that far away from my place and I was able to turn the car on in first and drive it home. So I went on the hunt for a new cable, went to repco, auto one, and even a clutch specialist and got the same answer from all of them, they dont stock it anymore and goodluck finding one. So my next set was ebay found a $20 one from singapore ordered it, it still has not come, so my last step was finding a wrecking KE70 and did! so a clutch cable was acquired. So I took the car to my mechanic up the road as I needed some other small things done and got him to fit the cable too, he also did my timing which was way off now the car goes 100 times better! so car is back on the road having one small issues with it getting very hot so yesterday did my thermostat have to drain my coolant too as its brown LOL, the system is getting done on tuesday too! then hopefully locking my diff soon. Plans for it are when rego runs out in july get it in for a respray and start finding parts for a 4age swap. Heres some photos of mine and my mates

Bit of an update, coming home from Zen on friday night lastweek at about 1am decided to meet up with mates to grab a feed,I went over a big bump then noticed the battery light and oil light would come on when I was doing about 20-30kms and the car would just turn off.

Thought maybe a lead or spark plug was fucked but everything was fine, drove the car home next morning took it to my mechanic up the road, alternator had shat itself and was full of oil as I had a massive oil leak.

Left the car there, went to a mates and grabed a alternator and belt for free from his old 4k, what a champ!

I let my mechanic do the job as I got him to fix a exhaust leak, oil leak, give the motor a clean. Was good as he only charged me for labour. Car runs better than ever, but it sitting in the garage now cause of double demerits, next week oil change, give the interior a massive clean and repair some the rust as rego is coming up.

Someone give me moneys for a 4age pls.

Definitely keep bumpers! wagons look good without them but sedans need the rear bumper.

Im 6'6" and drive a AE70, surprisingly has plenty of room... despite the fact that my heads pretty much in the boot.

For anyone who doesnt know this is my blog: Recently did a post on it about the car, can read here: http://riskyknights.tumblr.com/

To sum it up, met this guy called Stan from NZ who owns this

Reading his blog http://4x114.wordpress.com/ it just got me excited to work and get mine to a better standard.

With the help of Taz ive found some 86 struts, brakes, hubs etc but funds atm dont allow me to buy it all in one go, so next week will order the bare struts then slowly buy/source everything else. Also will be going to pick and payless to get AU falcon rear spring for the rear.

Cheers bra,

Car turned off 3 times on me today on the way to zen, stopped by repco to buy brake light bulbs as I got pulled over friday night, just got a warning for that.

Asked if they have any alternators, she said one left on special for $164, I said shutup and take my money. So got that will put in on monday or so.
