Sent the compressor back.  They gave me full credit.  I will be ordering another soon.  Also I had some issues again with the CV axles.  However, I'm staying positive.  

Also, check out the new decals.

Thanks, I had them made, however, these are slightly bigger than the original, but the styling of the letters are very close to the original.  I actually had these made for test purposes but I might run of a dozen more or so and sell them if enough people are interested.

Hey Trife96, I would been keen to buy a set of decals =D
Heres a pic of the ones I bought fromm TPS Shop .com for around $20 USD, they look alright, but have come un-stuck from the backing, so I'm worried they wont adhere to the paint =(

I saw those, but compared to the factory stickers, they still look different from the factory ones. I spent hours editing these and comparing them to the original. To be honest, I think a couple things still need to be tweaked on them, but I'm pretty happy with them overall.

I've posted them on other forums as well so if I generate enough interest, I will definitely do a run on them and get up some pricing. My friend owns a sign shop so he let me have these for free. But he would have to charge me if I get more made so I'm unsure of what they would cost right now but I will keep you posted.

Finally got it all together!!!!!!  Test drove this weekend, man.  All i can say is the 20V is made for the 6 speed.  Everytime i shift into gear, the power band is right where you want it.

I threw on my friends steelies so i can test run it so this is how it sits now until I get my rims.  I had a couple minor issues with the brakes feeling spongy so i need to bleed them.  Also the front brake rotor dust shield came loose and started rubbing.  So far that was the only problem.  Still have to get my windshield, inspection sticker, registration, insurance and all the stuff

yea, tell me about it!  So I ordered my second A/C compressor Saturday since the first one had a broke connector.  Hopefully it will be in Friday but likely will be Monday.  Then I need to get a new windshield, registration, license plate, inspection sticker, and then my wheels.  So about another year approximately... tongue

Awesome build you got there. Have you done a REAR disc conversion? You should do it.
This is an impressive read.

Thank you sir.

Actually I am looking at an option to do the rear disc conversion. I have come up with an interesting solution and the only reason it's possible is because I have coilovers. But I'm looking at swapping the Lexus ES300 rear discs from a 99 model. The parts from the salvage yard are inexpensive, but the part that will cost is the lower receiver for my coilovers will have to be swapped and each one was roughly $200 each so about $300 per side. After that, it will all bolt up. The other thing is the rear will be 5 lug and the front will be 4 lug. Not a big deal. Actually, this will make it less likely someone would have luck using them if they were stolen.

crappy test video.  I apologize in advance for not revving to 9K RPM and also not shifting through all the gears.  Currently, I have no license plate, no registration, and no insurance so I was being per-cautious.

a few updates...


So, finally got my registration, license plate and insurance so I drove it last week to work for the first time.  Dropped it off to get my new windshield so I can attempt to get it inspected.  When I went and picked up the car, they said they had to replace the seal for the glass, which is pretty much what I expected anyway, but it's nice to have a nice new windshield on the car.  It was funny how they went through the trouble to transfer my old expired inspection sticker to my new windshield...not sure the point of that but anyway :nerd:







So when I went and picked up the car, he proceeds to tell me that when they moved my car out the shop, it had a bad leak :surprise:


My first thoughts were the stupid CV shaft seals again.  But it turned out I didn't tighten the power steering line up all the way, so needless to say, I was pretty relieved about that.  


Also, I decided to make a custom mount for the Ambient Air Temp Sensor that normally mounts in your stock air filter box.  I bought a grommet and drilled the hole in the filter adapter plate where it was safe to mount it.  












 
Also replaced the hardware for the trumpets since the older bolts almost stripped when I went to remove them.















And I replaced the air filter wing nuts with some better ones.  The old ones used those stupid locking washers that you ruin every time you remove them and plus, they didn't seem like the right size for the holes.






So you can see the sensor looks like it was supposed to be there.  Wanted to look clean so I like how it came out.  Going to try and get my inspection done tomorrow

Finally upgraded my hoses, the old ones were probably the original hoses so it was a good time to do this.  Plus I like how the match the battery perfectly.  I have been running the car this last month with just water so I also went ahead and flushed it and added the antifreeze.  


Also after getting another a/c compressor from the same seller on eBay, I was done.  The second time around, he sent the wrong one.  So I sent it back.  Thankfully he gave me my money back but it was a BIG waste of time.  I finally went to the junkyard and found one, cleaned it up, and put it on.  And I saved about $75.  


While I was there, they had another Corolla parked outside with some real balls!!!!  Look close!   Laughing

My New Wheels: First on a Corolla AE101 (that I know of)  Laughing

My plans are to lower a little bit more, roll fenders slightly.  The offset is perfect.  Nothing too extreme for daily use.

949 Racing 6UL "charcoal"
Wheel Specs: 15 x 8 +36 (11.6 lb) wrapped with Dunlop Direzza DZ102 205/50/15

With the coilovers, I have plenty room, but when I turn the front wheel all the way to the right, the driver side wheel is super close to the inner fender.



This is above the tire looking down on the inside of the tire.  You can barely see the tail housing of the transmission...super close!  The second pic is basically the same view.  You can see the plastic splash guard how it curls at its edge towards the tire.





This is from the bottom looking up.  I might have to trim the plastic just a hair.



And a couple more shots to show how they sit.









And last, got my genuine TRD shift knob a while ago and decided to put it on last night.
