SloRolla's Slow Ke30

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've been lurking here a while and finally thought it's time to post a proper thread!

This story starts on the 3rd of October 2016, a day before my 16th birthday. For around 3 years I was looking for an r32 Skyline until I was convinced by my dad that a Skyline was the last car I'd want on my Ps, I knew he was right so I went on the hunt for a RWD, nice looking car that had that "cool factor" So I searched for a corolla for about a week and this popped up. Started as a full granny spec ke30, everything original and on the 3/10/16 I went to have a look. Instantly fell in love and went home very happy. Came with original papers, service history and warranty!

The interior is very clean, however has the generic dash cracks. Only a few small rust spots that will be soon fixed. 

It also came with a welded diff, pain in the butt, I'm looking for another but finding it hard.
 

Things I've done:

- Hayashi TVRs 14x7 -7

- Michelin Energy XM2s

- Tacho in clock hole

- 1800w Sony subwoofer

- 800w Kenwood amp

- Sony Xplod 3 way speakers

- JVC headunit

- New coil

- Refurbished the carby

-  And just a general tune up


Things to be done:

- Lowered by 2in back, 2in front. ✓

-Fender Mirrors ✓

- Full 2in exhaust with dual 2/2.5in blastpipes ✓

- Full respray (paint is very poor)

- Duck tail

- Front splitter ✓

- and generally just tidy it up

Just a small update while I'm getting the funds for bigger things. I managed to snag a set of 2" blast pipes brand new for $75 and should arrive on Friday or tomorrow. Also got an old wheel from our RV tarago and thought it looked good. However, it'll need a re-trim and clean up.FB_IMG_1497153895054.thumb.jpg.fa22e4efa10ea8e6f319a69dbc8e3fb1.jpg

That torago wheel does look good, nice score. Does the indicator cancel work?

I'm not sure how much blasting a 3k is gonna do, but will at least look shiny on your car:D

The cancel works like a charm! I just got them because they were cheap and look better (personally) to a cannon or droopy. And in like 3 years when I build a cammed 5k or 4AGE it'll sound a little better :D

Nice car mate.

Ref: the dash cracks. If you are in Nsw there is a bloke out Richmond way near Sydney who will refoam and repad the dash with standard style vinyl in a few colours for $450ish.

Yeah cheers man, at this point in time $450 is a bit of a stretch. Focusing on a few other bits and pieces first.

Little bit of progress over the past month or so, mainly just getting the funds. I also put on the blast pipes I got, (just on the end of the stock set up until I get a full 2")

Also, I got some Kings Super Lows, however, I need some shorter stroke shocks to keep them captive. Any recommendations?20746846_140252699897823_1006661470_o.thumb.jpg.bca4bfcbde8550daf6a440ba56fa0ee0.jpg

Managed to put the front springs in and I'm very happy with the out come :) I also got a lip from eBay, however it sat like junk so we shaved it down to sides and now wraps around nicely.

A snap from ToyotaFest! I got the fender mirrors a week or two before the show :)

It was my first event and I loved every minute! A guy there was selling some roof racks so I picked them up, and I think they look great!

And I also got my Ps! First time, and the corolla took me on the test and got me 95% of my hours! :)
