I have been pondering a few things. In the last 10 or so years and in particular in the last three years I have figured out some things when it comes to customizing a Cruiser.
Mostly this is about suspension.
I have figured out how to SaS the 100 using almost all Toyota parts and not have issues with width requiring wheel spacers as well as packaging of the parts in the build so it is as Toyota built it. I also have it figured so you don’t have to swap out the rear axle to an 80 due to the six lug vs five lug problem.
I have also figured out how to do a coil spring conversion on the front of a 40/60/70 where you are not having to compromise due to using 80-series parts. The way I do it uses ALL Toyota parts with no home made or non-Toyota parts.
I have had people ask me to make up some kits so they can do it themselves or have their shop do the conversions. I am not going to do that.
What I can do if any of this interests you is give you a quote to do these conversions in house for a set flat rate price. Again, what I think that makes what I am offering different than other guys is the use of ALL Toyota parts in the conversions.
I also have some good solutions for things like v8 swaps and engine placement. Anyone who has done one and has used the standard parts available knows engine placement is really not the best as it puts the v8 to far forward.
Welcoming Adam Churnside @theside00 to my no longer one man show. Adam worked at Tor Fab for a long time and recently relocated here to the Boise area. Really looking forward to working with Adam, I will let him take it from here on any introduction.
This is going to be a slow build for the next few months. But I figured I needed a place to post my progress of the clusterfuck of parts and vehicles that'll come together to make this... thing. After owning a built-ish 200 series for a year and a half, I realized they aren't my thing. They're...
New build just showed up at the shop. This is going to be a fun one! I just looked it over pretty quick, seems pretty much all original. Been painted before, not the best job. Rust, rot and bondo doesn’t seem to terrible. Transmission is not happy at all nor is the engine. Carb is in bad...
Still got room for a couple more, the above discount stands until we fill the next two bays available for builds. Doubt you will find a better deal on labor in the country right now.
