and now for something completely different, Scotts tight-ass triton build

Recommended Posts

hey guys, thought i would throw up a build thread for my triton, would be good to get other peoples opinions.

 

post-148721-0-09708600-1363427062_thumb.jpg

 

its a 1991 club cab, 2.5" blocks in the rear with flipped leafs, pedders springs and shocks in the front and all the front bushes are nolathane (stupidly stiff set up, even smooth roads are painful). its currently on 18" CSA sniper's but they will be going asap (no one wants to buy them lol)

 

im pretty poor at the moment but my short term plans are

- install the new seats (r32 gtst driver and r31 gts passenger)

- replace shitty woodgrain steering wheel with a nardi ive got.

- get new motor. current one has done over 400,000 ks and leaks oil like a sieve.

- new wheels

- new tub and factory 4wd flares all round

- build a hard lid and sheet metal front lip

- convert magna EFI head to fit (looks pretty easy from the research ive done)

 

when ive got a bit more money the plans are

- triangulated 4 link set up in the rear with a hilux diff (so i get 5 stud and can buy bolt on bigger brakes)

- 5 stud and bigger brake conversion in the front (unsure how i will be doing this atm)

- new wheels to suit 5 stud

- turbo conversion

- clean up body and full respray

 

i would love to hear other peoples feed back as this is all just in my head at the moment.
