I have recently bought an army auction RKR. It is surprisingly in good condition in comparison with other cars that were at the auction. Engine needs a complete overhaul but that doesn't matter because it's going out anyway. I intend to restore it fully for the purpose of general cruising and occasional off-roading. This is my first project after a previous failed attempt to get my other car's engine swapped. This time, I'm determined to see it through, all the way to the end. Here's a list of things I intend to get done:
- 1UZ or 3UZ engine swap
- Complete body paintjob (metallic grey most probably)
- All the required suspension changes
- New rims and tires
- Mean looking front bumper
Other small cosmetic changes will be done along the way as and when needed or wanted.
I hope to get your help along the way whenever I'm stuck somewhere. I'm fairly new to the 4x4 scene so please bear with me as I don't know much about this stuff.
