Seems I am back to the RAV4 world

Hey all,

After 3 years being removed from the RAV4 scene, it looks like I am coming back....
I am getting a 4.1 RAV4 from my ex-father in law at a great price.

This time it's a 4 door 4wd auto.

I have to do some basic maintenance and clean up to get it back road worthy, so I'll be back and forth as it progresses.

May not do many one-off mods like I did with the 2dr but plans are in the works for it already....

Welcome back, keep us posted on your mods.

Thanks! Good to be back actually.
I had lots of fun finding what parts work where by using the Toyota Parts bin over the years.

Over the last 3 years we have not been idle, we built this single seater and been having a blast with it ...

Hello all,

Been a long time since I was here. Quick update on the "new" RAV4:

Energy Suspension Bushings all around
H&R lowering springs
KYB shocks
Lexus GS300 17x8 wheels (set of 5)
and....
a …. um …. custom paint job in progress. Think of it as the distressed furniture look, but on a car!

I am autocrossing it this year, and so far won the first event in the class.

The next event is this Sunday.

Good to see an enthusiast back on the forums. Looking forward to seeing your custom paint.

If you post photos to albums on your profile page you can paste those photos over and over in threads without adding to your rather limited photo count. It also makes it easier to delete the photos if they become obsolete. Of course once you delete it it kills the link in your previous posts.

Please start a garage listing your maintenance and mods, if you date it and list your parts, it's handy later when you are trying to remember when and what you did the old girl.

Also, adding your RAV4's basic information to your signature block will let us all know at a glance what you've got.
