Well I counted my cards to soon and the Celica project didn't go through so I had to find me another Toyo so here she is.

1979 Corolla SR5 liftback in great condition.

Project will include paint, suspension, interiors and engine modification so stay tuned.

Here some pics bringing her home yesterday.

Now shes in her new home. ;D

Never dealt with a 79 corolla so ill be asking questions on lowering the car, wheel fitment to see if I can push some 15x9's in the rear and 15x8 in front both 0 offset, also where can I find spoilers, fender flares and suspension components.

Its good to have the 2 cressida door mirrors. :tu:

Lowering blocks for the rear leaf springs and cut coils or ae86 shortened struts for the front.

Wheel size should be fine maybe a 15x7 front?

Flares and spoilers will have to be modded and fitted by you.

Compress the bumper shocks and tuck. :idea:

Where would I get the blocks from and what spoilers and fender flares can I modify to fit the 79 liftback.

I have my own fender roller so you think I should be able to fit a 15x9 0 offset in the back and 15x8 front?

Thanks for your reply's.

I kind of dig it with the "diving board" look, the big bumpers seem to suit these late-'70s Toyotas. :)

Be careful with all your door and glass weatherstripping and rubber trim.You will have to reuse most of it. :idea:

That rear bumper looks as if it may be from a 75-79 TE38 wagon,its gotta go. :td:

Surprisingly all rubbers are in good condition cause shes been in a garage the past 8 years, I put them all in a neat little pile with all the windows.

Im gonna be tucking the bumpers soon so lets see how the rear one looks after that.

Im gonna paint her white. :D

Try storing the weatherstripping in a plastic bag with a overdose of Armor All or a similar product.
Or if you can vacum seal the bags even better. :idea:

Armor All is bad, it'll eventually dry out and crack the weatherstripping. Better to use Vaseline IMO.

Any product which is silicone or petroleum base will change the chemical make up and affect the product on which it is being applied on. A water based product is better as it will still provide a barrier of protection but will not change or affect the item which it is applied. Silicone dries up and will cause the rubber to shrink and crack the protection is temporary at best.

Well decided on neither white or orange, I think Royal blue will do and its close to factory. Tomorrow body work and priming starts.

I really need a set of te37 fender flares to retrofit, Anybody?
