    This is my new daily. Scored it for a pretty penny for what it is, and what has to be done to it.

    Make: Toyota

    Model: 1992 Twin Cam GTi Corolla

    It has decently low k's, in pretty good condition, and sounds pretty dope.

    Have quite a lot of plans for it as an obsesive modifier would. First things are to give it a good service...when I get some more money. Than get it regoed and use it as my reliable daily to get myself to and from uni nice and cheaply, leaving me with a better time frame to modify the Sileighty.

    Pics: I'll upload some soon.

    If you know of some good places to get parts for it etc, then please do let me know as there are quite a few interior items which are well past their due date.

    Thanks,
    Jacob

    Not going to change it. It sounds pretty dope as is. It should pass over the pits. Will keep a look out for wrecks and sheet anyways for interior parts etc.

    Got all this sheet to give it a service. Runs MUCH better, and does good skids too. Yet to change the Oil Filter though as I'm waiting to get the Filter Remover.

    Also found out that my passenger side LCA doesnt have a Swaybar balljoint bracket. This explains the lack of feel when turning.

    Should hopefully be able to get it registered sometime next week.

    Fancy tools pfft!

    screwdriver and hammer ftw!

    Unfortunately custom plates increase your gay factor five fold.

    I sense lee spec butthurt.

    My fellow Australians;
    Recently we've had many people crying out for change, crying out for SilviaWA to be run differently, and in some cases, just crying.
    ...After talking to some people though....what you really meant was "We want things to bedone but we want other people to do them for us".

    Replaced the Oil Filter finally, as I needed the ratchet remover to do so. Anyone who has replaced the filter on a 4A-GE will now how sheet it is.

    Just scored some new shoes for the beast. This was done mainly because the cost of tyres for 14 inch rims would amount to same as the rims rims/tyres I bought together. Plus, they look pretty sweet as well.

    I can only show a test fit as the nuts for the stockies insert into the rim, unlike most nuts which just push against the face of the rim. New nuts are needed in order to chuck these on...also, one of the tyres is racing slick spec, I suspect madd single pegger skidzzz. Anyway, I'm pretty drunk and rambling on, feelsgoodman.

    Here the pics *rabbits*:

    So, I got some nuts from Veales the other day and was able to chuck the rims on. Last things left to do are replace some bulbs and get that swaybar bracket welded on and it is as good as ready to be registered.

    Quite chuffed with how it looks. A good respray of the spoiler and a cut and polish will have this car the way I'm willing to keep it.

    Got the Swaybar Mount welded on just then, hopefully now the swaybar actually works and it doesnt feel like I'm steering a boat.

    Posted Image

    Also, I changed the parker bulbs and reverse lights. They is bright now.

    Lastly, I added a bracket to the Airbox so now everything seems compliant.

    No turbo on this baby, no harm in having at least one N/A car. In other news, the Rolla passed the inspection. Frack yer!! Only thing holding me back from getting my plates is the reciept for purchase. Apparently it's not correct in some way. If anyone has any clue as to what all the aspects that should covered in a vehicle reciept for purchase are, I'm all ears :)
