I've posted on here a few times but there are no TE27s in the project gallery so I thought I would post mine.

Before:

Today:

I want to get a front lip for my TE27 but the problem is that I am not willing to drill into the front valance for installation, any ideas?

I had to search for awhile to get a 73 valance and ended up having to buy a parts car to get one. My dad had it re-done for me as a birthday present so I would like to run something I can install or remove when I want to.

Here is a pic of my car..

Here is the refinished valance installed.

Some engine pics

That's all for now.

TE27's will never go out of style :mrgreen:

Did you redo the paint? Looks much more cleaner :tu:

Well whatever you use it has too be attached somehow.

Come up with your own one off no drill mount?

3M double tape,or panel adhesive?

I used the small VW duckbill one piece spoiler on my NOS 73 valance.5 small srews.
Gotta have it ,gotta do it.

I did not redo the paint the previous owners did and it is a poor job, everything taped off and lots of bondo. The drivers side fender was bondo'd to the car at the bottom. It probably looks good because I stay on top of waxing 8)

Still not sure of how I could mount a spoiler. It seems like a good winter project.

Man, everytime I see pics like this, I kick myself. I was at an auto auction a few years ago and passed on one of these. Ended up going for all of 40$... it was a POS though. It was a decent parts car, luckily, it wasn't an SR5 just a base model. I had no room for it, blah, blah, blah... Yours looks sweet, bondo or not.

Nice car!. How I long for a Te27 in Honda championship white 8), unfortunately they're as rare as a unicorns fart here where I live :mrgreen: . Are those Tosco Rims by the way?

They are TRD Tosco rims 13X8 and not sure on the offset but its close to -15. I no longer live in Springfield as you can see in the pic the background is lacking mountains, I'm in Minnesota now.

Yes I have a few from when I first got the car with my engine installed. I sure miss those back roads in Oregon, everything in Minnesota is flat.

I installed an AEM wideband. This has really helped me out with tuning. I thought the car felt pretty good but it turns out it was at 10.2 full throttle. I would post a picture but unfortunately it is too big and this forum will not allow me. I'll get another one.

Your car is gorgeous!! The paint is fine, good job on the waxing. 8) I was wondering what you think the biggest size wheel would fit flush just under the fender flares? Wheel and tire combo sizes would help me out for future reference. :wink:

I am using an original 73 corolla front valance and all other signals are stock.

I haven't played around that much with different rims. I mounted up a pair of 13X10 SSR MK1 with -38 offset and they stuck beyond the flares about 2". My car is lowered 2" all around too. With the right offset you could probably fit 8j up front and 9j in the rear but with stretched tires if the car is lowered like mine.

Thanks for the input on the wheels 8) , I was looking into getting a set of wheels by groupbuying with some guys on Club4ag. I was mainly looking at going 15x8.5 all around but with -6mm offset in the back and 15mm offset in the front. I'm worried that the fronts may be too wide but am just hoping the fender flare would add the extra width needed to make it just right and the positive offset would compensate for it :wink: . And would probably drop the car 2 inches with somewhat low profile tires
I was looking at the fullface FZero1's btw

15X8.5 +15 might not clear the struts. 15X9 0 didnt clear my struts. Might have to run a spacer.
