  1. Here's a small introduction to what's resulted in countless hours, days, weeks, months, years of hard work, tears & dollars spent. The year is 2004, I acquired a Toyota Corolla from one of my friends, Nick. The vehicle had been stripped out with the engine bay painted, sitting beside a colossal pile of parts. Due to lack of time and a few others things, I acquired the old girl on her journey towards a better life. Its an Australian Delivered, 1982 KE70 Sedan owned previously by a Family from the south side of Brizzy. Maybe the 2nd owner? 3rd? who knows. The vehicle drove into the shed as presented below, eventually to end up getting a complete nut-and-bolt restoration. Well, we did use some of the old hardware.. but you get the point. More Pictures of Day 1 -> Click HERE <- 17th September 2005 was the official start date of ownership & spanner throwing on the old girl. It's become an unofficial 2nd birthday ! Looking back at the project now and the 50+ pages of updates over the next 13 + years, Its turned into a digital diary of the ups, the downs, the successes and the failures. To all of the people that have looked at this over the years, I thank you for your continued support and hopefully i'll try to update this on a semi regular basis. It still gets driven, every day, as a daily driver - as originally intended all those years ago : ) T
  2. Been searching high and low and unable to find this headlight trim or the amber side light, any help would be appreciated.
  3. I bought this KE70 october last year (2015), and tought id make a build thread now. Its been a year and i have done some modifications to it. Gotten a lot of help looking at different threads here on Rollaclub, so thougt i'd just publish it. A little warning tho, I'm not a professional mechanic and I'm kinda learning as i go, I've had mopeds that I've worked on and a bmw that i kept ''hellastock''. So yeah I've gradually moved on to what in my eyes are more difficult things. And i have gotten a lot of help from my father who is a mechanic. Thought id just make a fast foward in pictures and some comments from when i bought it to where it sits now. Bought it like this, from a 60-70 year old man who inherited the car when his father died 10 years ago. it had 63 000kms on it. It has some body rust as far as i can see, the previous owner did some not that good rust repair with fiberglass, sikaflex and non color coded silver paint :huh: Drove it home, here parked next to my bmw i had at the time. An acquaintance of mine had some typically ''Jdm rims'' that i could try on the car, many of them were too wide but there were some ssr mesh that seemed like a good size. The car seemed even higher on these wheels, in the second picture he jumped into the trunk. :P Thought it looked a lot better now tho :D Had a little fun :laff: Stock 4k-C painted the top of the airfilter Changed the steeringwheel and added some other bits, the keychain thingy turned out to be super annoying so i took that down. And i changed the original radio for a more modern Pioneer with aux :) Winter hit! :D Ssr's are off and stock winter wheels are on And it hit harder.... got some rust over this winter, In the winter theres a lot of salt on norwegian roads :no: Never had any problems starting in the morning tho! Decided to remove the black trim along the sides of the car. Looked better in my opinion, but some of the glue is stil on the car, havent gotten some of it off yet. In the front some glue even ripped the paint off 8S This one might get a little hate.. but i changed the rear muffler, its not too loud idling and on lower rpm, but is way too laud on higher, gonna install another muffler in front of it afterwards. Wanted speakers in the rear too, the original material behind the seats were way too thin to hold two speakers, so i made a new plate out of wood, after the picture was taken i stapled black cloth around it, looks lowkey. sad I don't have a picture of that. I ended up buying those Ssr's and got them powdercoated in candy red, when the light hit them at the correct angle they glow :) On the car Wanted to lower it so i bought a complete suspesion from another ke70, thinking I'd just chop that set, never liked the idea of chopped springs tho. But then a coilover set for a carina TA60 popped up and i bought them, very bad condition tho. Installed some fender mirrors and made a bracket for where the old mirrors sat. Also got myself a lip, The lip is powdercoated so it's not the same color nor metallic, but it was free I'm probably going to paint the whole car afterwards anyway :) The coilovers got sandblasted and had ordered some ae86 5.1kg rear springs from technotoytuning and some kyb ae86 schock inserts for the coilovers. All of it is getting powdercoated black for the max stealthyness :D Ran into a problem with the shock inserts, the ae86 schocks were a bit longer than the TA60, we ended up cutting out the bottom of the tube and welding it in further down. And that meant installing it was next, me and my father did this over a weekend :) got some rear Koni adjustable rear shocks for the te71 for the rear. And had to buy new calipers becouse it just wouldnt be cheaper to rebuild the original ones. Old vs new rear springs Coilover refurbished Back and front wheelwells now Lowered in the rear, got an original Hella grill straight from the 80's :D Lowered onto the ground had to roll the rear fenders, a lot. :D This is how it sits now, the car got really stiff and the original seats just bounce you around, so i went ahead and bought a k sport seat. Its used but it seems to be in okey condition and i got new seat rails :) haven't figured out how to mount it yet tho, the KE70 have a wierd way to mount the orinial seat. So if anyone have done that before and have any tips about that id apreciate it :)
  4. I was curious and internet research could only take me so far. What is the best engine I can get for my AE70 that bolts up to my T50 transmission? I like fuel economy bit I love power more. I was looking at the 4age but I am not sure if that's the best choice. I am also open to turbo kits if they are common on the engine. Also I am currently running a 3tc with 230xxx miles on it. Appears to run well, but for how long?
  5. This past week I purchased a cheap daily driver that would cost as little as possible to put on the road. Little did I know that I would end up deciding to keep this car long term. In my search for information to fix a few issues with the car I found this forum and discovered what potential I had purchased. I have an 1982 AE70 Corolla with a 3TC motor and a T50 transmission. It is a 2 door sedan, I believe that is different from the coupe but am unsure, with a bit of superficial body damage to the right side and no rust to speak of. as far as I can tell all parts are stock. I purchased it with a little over 213,000 miles on the vehicle. As it sits currently the only swaps I made were for the ignition coil and the wire set. This was actually still running the original 1982 wires which is a pretty amazing testament to the quality of Toyota. The cap and rotor appears to have been replaced recently as well. other than that I have not done any fixes to the car. The power train as a whole runs without a problem. My goal for the next month or two is to replace all of the components required to make it both legal for the road and a decent daily driver. after that I intend to spend two to three grand over the following six months to let the world see how beautiful this car can be. I normally don't ask much of others but my reason for this thread is to ask that those who know this vehicle better than I do to help guide me in my decision making and through the more difficult fixes and modifications. I am mechanically competent to say the least, but also new to top to bottom rebuilds on older cars. Anyone knowledgeable about Corollas, particularly an AE70, who has the patience to help "the new guy" would be a great aid in my effort and I thank anyone in advance for their assistance. As she sits I need to replace the front struts and the brake calipers/pads for the front. I also need to add seat belts as both of the front ones are gone or cut. That is all that need to be done to have her legal and become registered. My short term ideas after that are, in order, a high flow muffler, external paint job, heal the dash pad that currently has an ugly cover over the top, and finally to remove and replace the old carpet which is generally destroyed. I have an unorthodox idea for that last bit but I will cross that bridge when I get there. I conclusion this thread will be a top to bottom remodel of my 82 AE70 with a few personal touches and I am asking for all the advice I can receive from the Corolla veterans. Thank you for reading my short essay and I look forward to hearing a community response to my remodel. Pictures will be posted soon so you all can see where I am starting from.
