  1. shocking wing you've got there. You ought to be totally ashamed of yourself.

    That's my favourite Corolla shape/model too ! So is this one saveable or is it destined to be an organ donor for the rest of it's iron oxided life??

    This is too far gone so will donate to the rest of the Gti's left, I've got a worse Corolla than this ! Will get some snaps of that one next week, rear sills are dust !

  2. This is one of my Gti's thats a little bit cosmetically challenged, the drivers front wing must be one of the worst in history, sills are ok though tailgate knackered and then there's the rear seat belt mounts. Of course engine/box are sound and the car drives like new. I'll be using bits from this for my own taxed & tested Gti and to rebuild one thats had a front end whack.

  3. Hi there, this might be a bit of a long shot but i'm in dire need of a little help!

    Well i had a bit of a front end crunch and as such i'm after a new front bumper; i'm having a lot of trouble finding one for my exact model to say the least. So basically i'm posting to ask for any knowlage on other bumpers that are likely to fit and any advice in the actual fitting; ie, is it as simple as finding a way to fit a similarly shaped bumper or do i need one with the right "fittings".

    I'm currently waiting on replys from various spares websites and breakers yards but if anyone has any ideas for anywhere else i'm well open to suggestion. So if anyone as any advice or anything at all i would be very apreciative so a big thankyou in advance!

    ps, its a 1988 Corolla 1.6GL Executive 5Dr hatch'.

    I've got the 1.3 version of this car that I'm soon to scrap, I'm in Enfield N London, is that any good to you ?

  4. Hey,

    Am after one of the things on the drivers side door cards that holds the electric window switch and door lock switch. Dunno what its called, lol. Also need a GTI wheel.

    How much for them posted?

    Cheers

    Is yours an early spec model or a high torque ? If you've got the ones with the flat window switches in the doors I can help

  5. what region of north london are you in? as i often spend time i the borough of enfield ;)

    I'm in Enfield too, N9. Just collected another Gti the other night needing some frontal repairs though with the two breakers I've got I'm sure it can be sorted ( thats 4 Gti's I've got ) If only it was still summer I could be out there now fixing it !

  6. would you be willing to break the engine? if so how much for pistons and rods?

    Have you got a trailer ? You're more than welcome to come and take away the remains after I've removed the body panels I'll be saving. I don't fancy removing the engine as I've just done that on an MR2 and it wasn't fun. If nothing else I'll take the head off the car. Will try and get some pics tomorrow

  7. I'm breaking whats left of one of my Gti's, body is rotten as a pear. So far, radiator, bodykit, front & rear seats have gone. Wings/doors/bonnet & tailgate coming off along with door cards. Is there any odd parts that I should remove before it goes ? I certainly won't be letting anything of value go for sure, car will be gone in a few weeks I guess. I would post a picture though I think it will scare most people

    What colour is it?

    It's a white one

  9. Think may have asked this before though can't find reply. I've got a gearbox from an MR2 Mk1 ( TVIS engine ) will the gearbox fit onto my Corolla Gti engine ( later spec high torque model ) My diff is knackered and the MR2 box is sweet. Your help is appreciated chaps. Will be fitting a new clutch at the same time as mine suffered from my last track day

    I could be wrong, but don't think you can use the MR2 diff; unless you plan to go backwards a lot and have only one forwards gear.

    Now you've got me thinking, what makes you think the car will do this ? The engine/box is located the same way just further back in the MR2

  11. the box will fit but you will need to change the selector as its on the front of the 2 and the rear of the box on the rolla

    Thanks for the speedy reply, much appreciated. Looks like I'll be rolling my MR2 over shortly to get the box to part company with a rather rusty MR2. The engine is sweet so thats def mine too !

  12. Hey guys,

    Anyone got a tailgate for a AE92 (j Reg)? Must be rust free, and preferably in white, although willing to accept other colours !! include delivery cost to essex\london please !

    Cheers guys :D

    I've got a whole AE92 Gti I'm breaking in white, tailgate is very good, have also got a red tailgate as well and plenty of spares, mail me with what you need and I may be able to help. I'm in Enfield N London. If I had your e-mail address I could send you a snap today of my tailgate,

    thanks,

    Jerran

    Hello,

    Have you got any pictures of the car after the damage ? I've got a few of these at the moment and plenty of spare panels ( wings/doors/tailgates etc ) so depending on damage I could poss take the car on and get it back on the road. Would definately be a shame to break it for sure,look forward to hearing from you.

  14. Thanks but i picked one up (also totally rotten) on Friday of this week.

    now i need to get the glass out without busting it !

    If you have a disaster with the glass give me a shout, I've got plenty of other AE92 Gti parts as well ( like a whole car )

  15. need a replacement glass or even better a complete hatch door, GL or GTI makes no difference to me as long as its 87-92 shape

    Cash waiting.

    Got one of these, tailgate is totally rotten and way beyond repair though it does have the Gti 16 glass in tact if this is what you need ? I may have the spoiler too.

  16. Hi ppl

    Thought it give all you first dips on part off my AE92 she is all standard. Except from the

    upper Rearstrut brace

    kyb shocks and fensport springs

    the car has a working immobilizer

    which I have one fob for

    I'm just starting to strip the car so P.M. if you want any parts

    else it will have to be ebay ;)

    Interested in wheels for sure, air box to replace the aftermarket filter on one of mine, parcel shelf. There must be more though mind a blank at mo, and cheapest way of getting stuff to London.

  17. Hello,

    Just bought myself a high torque Corolla Gti, lovely car as we all know, problem being is it's got a set of 16 inch Fox alloys and one is missing. I've got one of the standard Gti alloys on the front, this isn't ideal ! Has anyone got a set of standard Gti alloys for not much money ? Not fussed about tyres. Or I need a replacement for the missing Fox one ( I can get a snap of on here tomorrow )

    Your help would be appreciated chaps, what you got stashed in the garage ?!!

  18. Both look very clean and rust free should sell all day long.

    Thanks very much ! The red one is very solid, arches are like new, locally owned, just serviced, runs and drives very well with Mot & Tax and all standard apart from a performance air filter. New rear strut fitted. A very nice car all round.

    The white one has had the rear arches repaired though bodywork is very good, car is totally standard down to the Toyota radio cassette, nice history, two lady owners from new and 12 months Mot. Drives very well with no faults I can find.

    Sensible offers over £700 would buy either.

  19. a bit off topic but does the high torque feel or go any better than the low torque ?

    Apologies, I thought the last one I bought was a high torque, it was very dark when I bought it and I was in a hurry to pay the bloke, when I collected it I realised it was a normal low torque. Drove a high torque the other day and couldn't really tell much difference. Will say one thing though, the one with a performance air filter isn't as lively as the other two. The white G plate I've got drives so well and the engine is very revvy, more than the others. Will try and get a snap of them all lined up !

    All for sale as got my eyes on more and need the space for those ones.

  20. So you have THREE! :eek:

    You can never have too many Gti 16's can you ?! One red F reg, low torque, very nice ! One white E reg low torque, needs some TLC hence the ad plus an H reg white High Torque model ( just passed Mot ) plenty to keep me busy. I've got my eyes on a few more as well B)
