Celica XX ④

In order to prevent the vehicles frame from hitting the ground when the ride height is lowered, we sliced and raised the front and rear frame here. We constructed a reinforced shortened frame to increase rigidity. Welding was performed area by area using a specially constructed frame jig so that no frame distortion occurred. The result is a frame with zero distortion that sits higher up toward the body of the car, and is even more rigid than the genuine … Read More

Work continues on our Twin Cam 24 Celica XX. Because the front engine mount was raised, we also raised the transmission mount by 30mm. This car will have an extremely low ride height, so the underside requires as much flattening as possible. With consideration to strength, this rigid-type transmission member was made from scratch. It was given a blue powdercoated finish for weather resistance and a long life. *Currently, there are a number of requests for in house customization to … Read More

Work continues on this GX71 Mark II. The front suspension will first be completely removed. Because the undercarriage has not been touched since new, hardened bushes, loose ball joints, etc are not ideal. To fit a wide wheel up front without messing with factory fender body lines, a high degree of work must be done. We carefully measure and check each element with special attention to what work lies ahead. Custom work will proceed forward only after old parts and … Read More
