PostSubject: Dow's Build Thread    Mon Jan 14, 2013 12:53 pm

Well as you know i own two Corolla's now, one is a black 93 Auto trans with a sunroof and the other is a white 5 speed with nothing cool on it at all. i got the black one back in April as a project car to build as nice as Tyler's (aka Kickfli12 / my brother) but when it got down to it the only thing i liked about the car was that it had blue LE seats and a sunroof. So i fixed it as my senior project and i slowly started to get really in to it. Like it started with little things such as a new cluster then the arm rest and a radio. Just little things to keep me busy. here is a small list of a few mods i did to my car.

Interior:

LE Seats
Instrument cluster W/ Tach
Big armrest
crotch vent
intermittent wipers
digital clock


Exterior:

LE rear reflector
jdm black housed headlights
OEM mud flaps
aftermarket window visors that say "corolla"
jdm rear window visor
OEM FX-GT front bumper cover
OEM FX-GT Fog lights
OEM 8th gen corolla s sideskirts
Subaru impreza wagon hood scoop


Engine:

Semi-Polished upper intake plenum
Semi-Polished Valve Cover
OEM Denso Iridium Plugs
NGK spark plug wires
full 3" tsuedo catback exhaust



Steering and Suspension:

OEM Gold 14" Enkei mesh wheels
oem ae92 3 point strut bar
Tein s tech springs

Brakes:

stock

Here are a few pics of it when i got it and i slowly started to add stuff to it.







































Well right before Christmas i was being dumb and pretending that i could drift and i blew the suspension and broke the fly wheel. Here are some pics of the Flywheel when Tyler went to replace it.







We thought that i blew the engine so i started to look for a new one, and before i knew it i found my white one. Its not much but it was a new start. i started swapping my parts over and this is where the white one starts and the black one ends. Just a few pics of where im at in swapping my parts over. All i have left to do is change the intake manifold, valve cover, and the exhaust and the black one will go up for sale.











And i am now trying to build a front lip for it from a 96 integra. here is my progress.

I guess the sunroof is as much a "luxury" feature as was the auto tranny, which is why they were always together.

All I have to say is you're going to pay a shop to have it swapped. I'm not doing all that work to a car unless its my own.

Well ishaq, all I have to say as be very careful. It only takes a second to slip up and potentially lose your life. I've had a close call myself in an 85 beamer

yeah i know what you mean, i only risk it once iv done a whole load scenarios in my head and risk assesment.. this is usually done in split seconds in my head but once i put my foot down i know exactly what the car is capable of and what i can push it to but at the same time il be concentrating on my surroundings, looking at different drivers and the way they are driving..

i drive like a mad man once iv thought it through. Razz
Safety always comes first then fun..
