My baby I love you

I may own some cars right now and owned other ones in the past but my love for this Corolla is just out of this world. Always gave it the best I could and never looked at costs.
I started searching for one in 2006, when I was 16. In 2008 I was 18 and finally found one. It was VERY rusty, engine was in bad shape but it was cheap and I really wanted one. So I bought it! Started to tear it apart right away to look for more rust and the restoration began soon after that.

So it's a 1987 Corolla AE86 Levin
Around 122 000 kilometers
Was red but now it's white (Toyota SuperWhite 040)
Only minor modifications, the car is almost stock
Full body restoration and paint
Full engine restoration with OEM parts
New suspention, repaired gear box, repaired differential

...

How it was when I bought it




After the restoration




Engine modifications: Only a lighter flywheel, Magnecor spark plug cables and a K&N air filter
Suspention: Eiback Pro-Kit springs, Koni-Sport shock absorbers, red Prothane bushings (full kit) (IN THE PICTURE THE CAR STILL WASN'T LOWERED)
Looks: Konig Rewind 14', TRD rear spoiler/wing, Sprinter Trueno tail lights, OEM grill fog lights
Brakes: fully-repaired brake system, OEM disks and pads. Stainless brake lines

It was a very hard work and alot of pictures were taken. There are so many so here's a link do my Youtube playlist. I have 4 videos (slideshows) of the progress until the car was painted.

(youtube.com)/playlist?list=PLD8E8F237314D2A51
(there is a 7 day limit to post some links and I can't post the videos directly, when 7 days pass I shall post said videos).

I will soon post the newest updates.
I hope you like the work so far, took me a while but it was worth it.

Wow it came out Great you put a lot of Blood & Sweat into her and it shows, Excellent Job Well Done! Now after seeing this; how I Miss my 87 Twin Cam!!! After all these cars are hard to find now but not to mention finding OEM parts. I seen a lot of SR-5's but it'll never be a true Twin Cam. I find another 1 day! cheers
