PostSubject: SUBAZUKI JUSTY GTI AWD   Thu Apr 19, 2012 7:21 pm

BUILD THREAD TRANSFERED FROM POCKETS

So then it begins (well it has to somewhere i guess)

as some people may know my Swift GTi that I briefly enjoyed died, but in her ashes has been born a new idea

the idea being im going to try and take a Subaru Justy AWD (basically a Suzuki Swift with Subaru's twist of AWD) and match it with a GTi swift engine
sounds fun and not too dificult so i thought id give it a go, were in the early stages of the process but hopefully we might get somewhere with it bounce albino

So far im in the process of gutting the GTi for any useful bitys for the conversion.
sounnds really boring i know but were on a small budget and need all the bits i can scavenge either to mod or sell to get more bits

so the interior is nearly there now there is nothing left other than the bare bones and knackerd carpets that im donating to the scrapman
or eBay whichever comes first and im already running out of room in the garage, i didnt know there was that much stuff in such a small car affraid Laughing affraid

so il try and get this plan into action as fast as money and time allows, the first job ive got is trying to get a 3dr justy for a resonable price,
cant be that hard can it???!. scratch

when i get a shell il try and do a update with pics before i tear into it

so please wish me luck and i will see you later people its going to be a long few months What a Face Shocked What a Face



IT HAS BEGUN!!!!!! Twisted Evil What a Face Twisted Evil


THE MOTOR


THE ENGINE BEFORE I PLAYED


THE ENGINE AFTER A GOOD BIT OF CARE new cambelt, clean, paint and a bit of tlc


ARCHES CLEAN need shutz now like a two day job:roll:


GTI PUMP VS STANDARD

Hopefully it wont take to long with all the bits ive got, just hope ive thought of everyting!!!
its going to be the little niggle jobs that take the longest, arches, bits of welding for example
now i warn you all it aint going to be pretty from here on in, i aint building a show car this is just something im determined to do with the knowledge ive got lots of paint and time so it could be very rough looking affraid What a Face affraid

just hope i can live up to the badge ive given the shell


il try and get a update on here again when ive done more, im trying to get the shell right before i pull it to bits and swap the blocks, this is going to be fun!!!


bit of an update been doing loads on the car recently, too many little jobs that matter to put up here tho so heres a bit of a sumary



out everything comes time to get really confused with two looms to mess with swapping plugs, tracing wires etc etc



the floor and cavities gets a few coats of chassis enamel (mite go no carpet Twisted Evil )



front gti springs, koni dampers, gti disks that still need machining and my braided lines



the cage in 'look at me' red Evil or Very Mad Crying or Very sad Evil or Very Mad



the cage in ' you dont know shit about this motor' black Twisted Evil What a Face Twisted Evil

so thats it for now, got loads more done that i aint took pics of but wouldnt want to go on too much more anyway

engine and everything should be out soo now ive borrowed an crane (cheers jared cheers What a Face cheers )

hopefully she should be all done in the next few months What a Face cheers What a Face

WELL JARED YOU WERE RIGHT ABOUT COPY AND PASTEING THE BUILD FROM POCKETS, COULD HAVE BEEN A BORING DAY OTHERWISE cheers Very Happy affraid

right then another update, warn you now things havent really changed much



anyone know a meerkat, im confused.com



wheels on Twisted Evil Twisted Evil



purple wires!! got some left if anyone needs some



the only real givaway that shes modified Laughing



painting inside bonnet (dont worry im not leaving it like that Wink )



gearbox all painted ready to go back on



new lightend justy flywheel ready to go on, still heavier than the gti by 3kg but should be ok Laughing i hope



new black diamond kevlar clutch What a Face bounce What a Face



at least everything bolts together, clutch alignment is easy when youve got the right tool, only japs would make the gearbox driveshaft fit a bearing in the the flywheel affraid Sad affraid



gearbox fits cheers



other side tongue



my drivers seat view cyclops



seat is in with my halfords bargin harness Very Happy



backend view with the pig-to-fit rear brace

and thats it for now, just gotta fit engine back in, connect it up, make a exhaust, get the wiring to work, clean and paint wheels, put a sunstrip in, front strut brace, get engine running, bleed the brakes, possibly put rear disks on if i can get the hubs off, tax it, insure it, get a v5!! so not that much really scratch scratch scratch

just been told by a lad thats built one of these that they aint that quick Sad which is what i kinda thawt, just hope there quicker than standard justy, otherwise im gunna be a bit embarrased at USC, only time will tell i guess
that just means that once its built its another challenge for me to make it quick, im sure with some minor adjustments ahhem NOS+TURBO+CAMS= cheers affraid cheers

and some help from people around ie please mr shrek make my car quick lol!
see you all around when im free, you know where i am if you want help or wanna help me lol!

other two wheels are also all painted up and laquered like the back ones now

only got a few odjobs to do til its ready now, speakers mounts out of lexan polycarbonate (yes my speaker mounts need to be bullet-proof Very Happy )
then i can get on with bedding the clutch and flywheel in and some testing of everything that i might have broken or wired up wrong allong the way, fingers crossed there isnt much more to do drunken cyclops affraid

gonna be great going to pod (hopefully) it should look mint rolling around with andy in his justy too, just wish they were same colour Sad that would have been cool
