PostPosted: Tue Jun 09, 2009 6:40 am 
hi everyone,
firstly, im abdullah from malaysia. nice to meet u all here.
im a user of corolla AE70 coupe.
i bought this car last november. currently its a standard machine, n im planning to maintain as it is.
this car can be considered as a part of my life. heheee. (hardly collect money to bought this car)

it comes with a standard 3A-U 1.5 litre engine. all stock and un-touched, except the air filter with rampipe which need to b installed due to no any air filters attched during i bought this car. hehee.

overall, she's all stock n standard.

:wink:

this pic was the first time i say this car at my neighbourhood. this car was put on sale that time. i even had a test drive. the first time i saw her, WOW! i begin to feel i want to own this car.

a dull but rare colour AE70 in a wet day...

Image

Image

i even came on night to c wether the car is still there or not. hahaha! sooo afraid to let the car being sold to other person... (that time i hasnt confirmed with the owner)

Image

then, about a week later....CONFIRMED TO BUY IT! yahooo!

brought her to my mechanic, fix the gear bush, brake pads, etc...

but the owner wants the rim back, so i put on a Cheviot Mesh 13'x7jj on it as a temporary one. still nice looking though. hehee.

and later, give' em a wash. hahaha. sooo dirty! but now looks better.
:wink:

Image

Image

and, about a week later, i replaced the broken sidemirror with a local ones...(not enough budget to buy an original TE71's) and the original TE71 rear lamps (got with a bargain price) :D :D :D

Image

Image

and a month later...i managed to get a nicer rim replacement.... the HAYASHI STREET 13x7jj offset-0.

Image

n went to the gas station for refuelling. wat a nice one.... truly satisfied with the rims, which also get for a bargain price. (thanks to a friend who give me a chance to negotiate.)

Image

n after this... want to arrange budgets for bodyworks. hehee.

will update soon.

:wink: :wink: :wink:

BODYWORK TIME!!!

heheee. lucky for me, there's isnt much rusts occuring at the car. the floor, everything was perfect! yeahh!! except at the spare tyre compartment... common problem. hehee. i even change another sidemirror. less oldschool-looking, but easier to use. hehee.

Image

Image

i even change the radiator coils.

old shitty radiator coils (really need to be replaced)

Image

the bodywork took 1 month + to complete due to long queue (got 3 cars ahead of me)

and the outcome.... PERFECT! i use a champion white colour (my dad's suggestions)

Image

Image

Image

the person in red is a good friend of mine. using a well known brand paint ALESCO, primers, etc. his work is very neat indeed. (tats y i dont mind it takes 1 month to complete) hehee.

Image

and after total completion, brought it to my dad's workplace to show him. :wink: :wink: :wink:

Image

Image

more updates soon. :wink: :wink: :wink:
