Jealous of the green machine's touring roof. Also curious if your headlights are clear-ish instead of all refracted like ours our. Maybe it's just my late night eyes...

I checked the prices of used side markers here in finland and they´re about 25 dollars a piece from junkyard. I propably could send them sometime if you want a pair. I have to get one for my green loyale too cause the previous owner busted it up...

I don´t know if those headlights are different from the usdm version cause I haven´t seen any up-close, but I will take better pictures next week and maybe I`ll figure it out :)

Think I see normal headlight lenses.
What is a corner marker ? Indicator light ?
AUS did not get the rear fog light in place of LHS reverse light.
Not seen headlight washers here either :)

I lifted the green one up today at work to see how much rust there really is, well there was, lots of it. But nothing so serious a good couple of hours with a welder couldn´t fix ...

then there was this little hole that was filled with bondo, oh how I laughed and laughed.

Everyone at work said I was nuts for trying to fix it, but hey it´s my car and I love it. And besides you don´t see too many of these on the road nowadays here so they should be grateful :D

I got today a set of brand new Toyota rims for the 6 lug conversion and new winter tires 195/70r15. The wheels are Nokian Hakkapeliitta tires which in my books are the very best for Finnish winter... Got a great deal too so couldn´t pass, and now I have no more excuses not to do the 6 lug conversion =D

Yeah I really think so too, just have to paint those rims white and do some modification first :D


Hey guys I was wondering if anyone else has had camber problems with loyale, It seems that my green machine has severe negative camber on the rear right wheel and I haven´t been able to figure out what´s causing that. This car has a lot of rust and the previous owner used it on the forest trails, so I guess he might have crashed it at some point and bent something... I will lift it up at work next week to really see what´s going on down there but If someone has any ideas please share, will be greatly appreciated.

In this picture the rear has been raised with a jack.

as you can see, it´s quite bad.

Check your struts/coils and control arms. I know when the ones in my EA82 went bad, it was like that. Rust and wear on those parts I would imagine are likely the culprit.

I´havent been doing anything for the green one since i decided that it has way too much rust and I don´t really have the a place right now to do anything about it. The rear crossmember is so rusted through that better just use the car as spareparts... But some tiny progress is happening with the red one, the lift and bigger tyres are in working progress and I just made some minor modifications to the battery system... I got a new AGM 80Ah battery and placed in in the location of the missing sparetyre. Have still to do some cleaning up in the brackets and everything but I like it like that =)

It would be yes with a normal acid battery, but that AGM (sealed battery) can be installed in that manner. Preferably the terminals would be in the top instead on the bottom like in my car but that would look such a mess with the wiring so i´m sticking with that :)

That is well known problem here in finland that the rear crossmember gets eaten away by rust and in result gives us a bad camber problems. My coupe has the same problem and so did my part car axle too. Leones have a lot of welding to do here in finland if you want them to be rust free or even somewhere near it.

Got some new rims for almost free... Tyres on them are Hankook 235/75r15 (28,8"??) which maybe be a bit too much for my project. Planning on getting 215/70r15. They´re out of a Nissan pickup and I think the offset is something like 40? I really don´t know how well they will fit with a 2" lift or if they will fit at all.

Also started modifying the toyo rims for 6 lug conversion. I used a plasma cutter cause no one seems to have a good big lathe anymore...

I wonder if you guys know what´s happening with my ea82 MPFI, I tightened the timing belts couple of days ago and now it feels like it has no power at lower rpm and it hesitates a long time before starting to rev. I checked timing and it seems fine, also messed with the distributor to see if that helps but I didn´t notice any change in the problem. I´m kinda baffled now. can you tighten the belts too much?

This looks very nice, I like it.

The size of the wheels is just perfect, and with a lift and the Nokian winter tires, this must be perfect for the winter roads of Finland :)
