  1. I've built another AE95. Bagging and painting my first wagon was cool but some years later I needed something less subtle to go camping and exploring in. My goal is to build an adventure wags. 4AGZE bagged wagon build here. My Instagram feed with numerous Gezza photos. The Beginning: In March 2015, I happen to hear word on the FB grapevine of a corolla wagon that had been sitting on a driveway for years. A bit of investigation and a site visit landed myself another corolla wagon for the tidy sum of $150. A budget buy deserved an ultra budget build. How I found the new wagon (sitting for 5 years) Shortly after picking up the wagon, I happen to also barter a granny spec 1.8L 7AFE engine from a later gen AE112 Corolla. This was the beginning of the budget build.
  2. So its about time I started a work log on my wagon… finally I have gotten around to doing it :p Everyone who asked me for it and got denied, here it is. :p {Intro + Purchase} I purchased my 1989 Toyota Corolla AE95 SR5 AWD Wagon in June 2006. I found it on eBay (where else :P) and paid a tidy sum of $500 for it. Saved from the scrap yard. It had a non-existent clutch, a couple of smallish dents, a/c gasless, no rego and the red paint was completely faded. Apart from those few minor things it was fairly straight all round. At that time I had already shopped around trading post etc. and I found the average price for a decent AE95 was $3000 so really I was happy with what I got. The main reasons for indulging in this form of conversion/artform was; 1. the fact it was not very common, 2. being able to take it soft roading on the beach on the weekends and 3. choosing an ugly car and doing it up :P {Repairs + Blue slip} First up on the fix list was the clutch. Begun was the search for a temporary clutch. Pricing a new clutch kit proved not to be an option as it would only be used for like 250kms. So I placed a WTB thread on a few forums. Toymods came through and I picked up a 4agze clutch and pressure plate from an ae92 with plenty of meat. Thanks Clint! (peter costello on the forums). Now the task to replace the clutch…. I soon realised why I got the wagon cheap. The previous owner must have realised once the clutch gave up the cost to replace it wasn’t worth it. What a bitch it is to remove the gearbox. I found out later that the Toyota workshop manual recommends removing entire motor to change clutch and gives a removal and replacement time of 12 hours. Whoa…. Silly me removed the gearbox with the motor still in the car :P After the clutch fitted and working all sweet I went over the car and fixed/serviced all the safety things. I then took it in for blue slip… the fellas went over it did a brake test and all the necessary checks. They ended up informing me I had movement in the steering rack -> worn out rack end. They were nice enough to let me fix it then bring it back to sign it off. Finally I had it registered and I could sink deeper into my project.
  3. Since changes to my employment situation were forced upon me in December, I have been belting around in my mechanics AE91 Levin. Its been quite a pleasant place to be, but two doors didn't really suit having a 5 month old bub. So when this very clean AE95 wagon popped up on carsales for not much money, complete with rego until August, I thought it might be worth a look. Seeing some of the TCCAV lads's machines also helped the cause, their fondness for them is infectious!! Rocked on down to Frankston on Sunday, took it for a drive, did the deal and brought her home. I am very pleased with how clean it is. Allegedly owned by mechanics previous to the owner I bought it from, he seems to have used it mostly to go back and forth to the railway station for the last 4 years and had it serviced at Kmart Auto. There are lots of stickers from a detailing business in the glovebox, so I guess they are probably responsible for how good it continues to look, even with 245,000km on the clock. Issues it had when I got it were: *Cracked windscreen *Massively cracked dash top *Driver's seat wouldn't slide back *Shocks were as so soft they might as well have not existed *Tyres worn *Top of the console box cracked So given this is destined to be a daily commuter, along with something I can sling our mountain bikes into/onto, pretty much the plans are going to be get it roadworthy and start wearing it out on the daily grind. Things done so far are: *Windscreen replaced *Dash mat ordered *Driver's seat pulled out and sliding mechanism issue rectified *Inserted new KYB shocks into the rear. Fronts will happen tomorrow on a mate's hoist *Tyres ordered to go with the OZ wheels that have been sitting in my shed. The wheels are off being refurbished as we speak. *S/H console box sourced Can't find anything that shows when the timing belt was last done, so that is on the to do list. As is replacing the thermostat, as the temp gauge floats up and down much like a sticky thermostat would do. Have to try and find some era correct rola roof racks for it. Any one know of any? Anyways here is the pics which are "before" most of the work was done (other than the screen) High end audio Complete with ipod dock No power house but she will do To keep the nudge bar or ditch? Stack those lights high!
  4. Alternator went on my way home from Sydney and limped into Campbelltown. Had it replaced plus cost of a motel room. Is it possible to replace the diodes or regulator, and keep it as a spare? Thanks PM
  5. Hi I am new and have recently(3 months) bought a '89 AE95r wagon, I though it would be a great idea to start up a thread for people that don't know heaps about cars(like me) but are very keen to learn, especially for the 4wd wagons, i would like to use my car for a general drive plus a bit of dirt road fun on the weekends but have not got the slightest idea where to start, I find it tedious to sift through countless different topics describing words and stuff i don't know about and thought it would be good if people could go to a topic to learn the basics and then maybe work on their own cars, So yes that is why I created this topic
