1970 Corona Mark ii DLX

Post by Lope70Mark2 on Thu Aug 09, 2012 11:48 pm

1970 Toyota Corona Mark ii Deluxe Sedan
stock 18r-c
4speed manual
Everything's original so far.

I have only had the car a few days days and am impatiently waiting for the weekend so i can rip into it.
So here is the car on the first day. I had to stop at the tire place on the way home cause I was riding on studded tires and they were severely aged.



And Here Is a couple days later, as you can see I can aquired a few parts. I have KYB exel G (same as RT85CORONA). But I am ordering KYB GAS-ADJUST for the rear. Also have my lowering blocks, and pretty much tune up kit in those bags.



Engine bay's pretty dirty, gonna also clean that up. The old aisin carb is pretty much toast. THe guy I bought it from said the carb was good and It ran good, but I was stupid and didnt examine it; the screw that holds the air intake lid on was stuck in one of the barrels. and the float screw was off and sitting on the exhaust manifold. Also I need to get a new truck rubber seal. Maybe do a DIY with another old toyota at the yard.

so far its only surface rust and a few real small holes

So only a few rust spots found. Hopefully get those patched up by next week.
Went to pick n pull and scored a trunk seal from a early 90s Camry.

It fits pretty good, haven't closed the trunk yet but I'm positive its going to be way better than oem.
Probably just going to touch up the connecting part with some silicone.

Also started ripping out the seats to get them redone.

Test fit the rims to see if i'd like them. I do but i think i'll get some smaller tires, hah.

and finally, I did my tune up and and tried to start it and NOTHING? wtf. It was too late to find the problem. But im sure its something to do with the battery. Oh and heres some stupudity for you; The previous owner decided to plug the master cylinder with a spray cap and electrical tape, I'm sure its water proof. Twisted Evil

Yea.... dude thought he was on to something with that master brake cylinder in general, cant even begin to understand his logic.

Right now I'm struggling on my idle and acceleration. Got the thing to run but it hesitates and almost stalls when I accelerate. Its looking like something with the carb or... timing? I dont know. My weekend is over and it looks like I'll have to figure it out next week.

I might have a lead on a 18rg....ooooo i hope it happens! cheers

Im having problems with getting the beast to run properly. Im having vacuum leaks like a mofo, and my timing was way off. Good times.

Ooo shiny! Finally got to sprucing up the chrome. A lot of rust pits on a few pieces but the bumpers are still perfect.


Going to drop the gas tank tomorrow, and clean it. With that out I should be able to fix the rust holes more appropriately.
Oh, and I finally fixed the timing and tune up, runs better. I'm having trouble hooking up a aftermarket tach. .

Redid the timing, the throttle cable was way to loose, the carb. adjust screws were waaaaay off, and plugged the vacuum leaks.

Let me know how much that chroming costs you, i heard it was super expensive.

Its in the 18rc manual I posted in the DIY. Super easy to follow with pictures. And its primarily for our engine and not a specific car. But mine is set a little advanced like 10 degrees, seems to run best at that. But i cant seem to hook up my tach so i cant tell if its running at the appropriate rpms.

So been super busy at work. No excuse I know.

I got the rear end painted, lowered and undercoated.


Then this weekend was able to get some of the trunk welded and ready to put the gas tank back in ( which got removed and treated.). I would say one more day and I can move back to getting the body ready for paint.



While I'm waiting for the next step I'm going to finish removing the interior and getting that sound proof.

BTW if you can guess what I used for the sheet metal I will give you made props. hah clown

Been a minute I know. But I have been getting shit done....mostly.

For starters I worked on my gas tank. Which was extremely rusted and on the verge of some serious work. So I gave it my best try and save it. For starters I could not get the fuel sender off so I works around/over it. Rolling Eyes

So this is what I started off with :

1. rusty gas tank. Completely cleaned in and out ( fuel, rust, and debris)

http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

2. Phosphorus Rust Treatment
3. Rustoleum Professional Rust Primer (gray)
4. Metal Prep
5. Truck Bed liner Spray.


I removed as much of the flaking as possible with a wire brush and 100 grit. And coated the infected area pretty good with a brush. Then I let it dry for half the day



I also took the time to get the rusted parts of the trunk lid with the extra bit of rust treatment.


So next step was to wipe down the treated area with some thinner and metal prep and re-sand and wire brush, to remove what the phosphorus has created ( blackened rust chunks ).
If there are any holes smaller than a inch you can fill them with some quiksteel type product. But make sure you remove the rust around the area or it wont stick worth shit.
With the tank looking pretty good and clean and visible rust removal (bare metal showing now). Apply some epoxy primer or self-etching primer. And after that dried hit it with multiple layers of the rustoleum primer.



So my final step was to coat the entire tank in spray on truck bed liner to help seal the paint and what not but to also add an extra barrier of protection. I am also going to spray my entire trunk with it as well to help with sound deadening and moisture retardant.
When using the bed liner spray on in light coats and build it up as it dries, adding light coats until its uniform.

^ hopefully that hold a while. haha.

Also this weekend I started fixing some other things as well.

My 2" lowering blocks suck so Im taking my leaf springs in to have them reconditioned/lowered 2.5-3 inches.
See what I mean...not low enough!!! Evil or Very Mad


And I removed the thing behind the rear seat cause that shit was gross and started to make a new one but got tired and called it a day. But I bought some exterior black carpet and a piece of particle board from home depot and some adhesive spray so Its going to come out better than oem I think.


Finally I added 5 hp to the car by slapping on this awesome muffler tip. hah Smile

Haha, Yea I did. Its funny cause I had larger tires on them in the first shot with those rims. But I got some 165 55 14 on there now and with the lowering blocks it looks like I didn't do anything. And I don't want to get crazy large blocks so thats why im getting my leafs done.
