Plenty of more work to do; front hubs have to be converted with the Rav4 pieces, Camry rotor and two pot calipers. The front might need sheet metal work to properly fit the tires, possibly a strut top spacer along with spacing the subframe and engine/tranny down an equal amount to not stress the axles. Hopefully all four corners will be fitted with the 5x114.3 hubs by the end of this next weekend.

Really cool. I agree with Daniel, I think if I kept mine forever and said YOLO I'd do the same. Some of my favorite driving moments were sliding on dirt.

Looking awesome! Can't wait to see when the front is done so we can see the whole car.

All I see is a vape shop and PT, no coffee.

Jokes aside it's coming along nicely. Now it just needs some kind of rally car livery, and mudflaps. tongue.gif

Are you seeing any issues with axle length/CV angle?

I love this different build. Makes me wish I had the funds to do a UZ/RWD drift build.

No axle binding or length issues.

That's so coooooooooolllll!!!!

I'm wanting to chop up a 6GC for that V8/RWD drift machine though. Can you imagine the sound of a cammed LS coming out of a slammed 6g? I want to do it, just to mess with people.

Thinking along these lines, the Safari rally cars had extra spot lights on the front wings/fenders just in front of the mirrors, the bracket looks simple enough to make.

Also the snorkel, it would be interesting to see how you tackled that, thought about making one once, gave up, found a genuine one for sale, would have cost more than 2 GT4S.

I would love to see a snorkel, wouldn't use a genuine one for fear of damage. I really like this build:

I feel like the car wouldn't complete the WRC Safari Celica without a snorkle. I've got a few ideas about how to make it and make it work, but we'll see. It's probably one of the later pieces I'll tackle, as it isn't needed right away. That Porsche is looking BA!! I think it was used to run the NORRA 1000 in Mexico if memory serves me right. I took the car to do a little off roading this weekend, easy does it at first, to find more fender clearance issues, see where to trim or completely cut away. I don't want to cut too much off yet, as I still plan on correcting suspension geometry to help with some of the fitment and clearance. I'll post a few nice pics of the adventure later.
