  1. Try high temperature enamel paint.. Halfords do it but im sure it can be bought somewhere cheaper.. Or brake calliper pain thats designed to take high temps Cheers Dan
  2. :drool: :drool: thats all i can say lol
  3. Well mate if you want a 1.6 then you have a choice of a 4AFE found in corollas 1988-1998 or a 3ZZFE vvti found in corollas 1998-2002 or a 4AGE found in celicas 1983-1989 and in corollas 1983-1987 according to wikipedia. if you have a 98 g6 corolla then it has a 1.3 4EFE engine in it so the 4AFE is a straight swap and swap it for a 4AFE ecu i think not 100% sure so correct me if im wrong.. The only difference with the 4EFE and the 4AFE IS the 4AFE has a distributer rather than coil packs like on the 4EFE so you wouldnt have to tell anyone about the engine swap.. ;) but thats up to you! 3ZZFE vvti again this a straight swap but the wiring loom and ecu would be required from a donor vehicle and if you had a larger budget and more time then a 4AGE engine would be a better option toyota built these engines with power in mind but this would require a lot of rewiring of the loom and these engines arnt that easy to pick up any more where as the 4AFE can be found in your local breakers yards for £100-200 depending on where you are.. Remember the further you get away from big cities the cheaper the scrap yards are ;) all the engines are listed on wikipedia if you want to have a further look into them mate. Dan
  4. Thanks for the coment mate. Yeah i should really but i have a mate thats built a few rally cars and my girlfriends dad used to build rally cars so hes giving me advice as i go along. yeah my mate was telling me about that. There are loads of people in wales that spend thousands and thousands on cars! Ive seen +£40k mk2 escorts been written off in the first few corners of a rally! :( Cheers Dan
  5. Cheers mate! Yeah they were in pretty good nick when i had the car. i use nitromorse and a lot of elbow grease! But im getting a bit tired of that so i can get wheels sand blasted for £10 each but the place takes ages to do them! Well the sand blasting would take all the crud off and if its needed i use a dual action sander to smooth out any curbing marks. Cheers Dan
  6. Cheers mate! i do wheel referbs if your interested? Haha sadly the black corolla was stripped for spare parts and taken to the scrap yard! Cheers Dan
  7. Sorry for the late reply mate! Unfortunately my oven isnt quite big enough to fit the strut brace in sorry but i can do other parts as long as there smaller than a 20inch wheel, thats the biggest thing that i can fit in my oven. Engine bay looks mint mate! Love your work. Cheers Dan
  8. Cheers mate! Should have a few more little updates soon. Does anyone know what roll cage will fit in one of these as I cant find one for it so I was going to get a 205 or nova cage and make it fit! The wheels and cam cover have been powder coated I have a machine to do it. If you want anything done let me know ;) Cheers Dan
  9. Well ive been away for a while but im now finished uni for the summer and i have a bit of money so ill be getting on with the car over the summer. Well the latest things that ive done are refurbish the wheels and cam cover because I have a powder coating machine here are some pics of before and after the parts have been powder coating. I’ve stripped the boot of the locking machine and wiper motor. The speakers, central locking motors and all the sound deadening has been removed from the doors Before And after Not much else to update but there will be more soon All comments welcome Cheers Dan
  10. Right time for an update. Progress on the rally ca has ground to a halt because im saving up for a land rover defender.. but in the mean time i managed to get my hands on this lovely matt black corolla which i will be using for spares for the rally car. I know that the engines are the same but what else is? Does anyone know what parts are interchangeable and could give me some advice please? Here are some pics of the ratted corolla. Cheers Dan
  11. Thanks mate! I’ll be updating soon with a sump guard and a roll cage!! :lol2: Cheers Dan
  12. No point painting them this car will be hammered round corners sideways. its not for looks its a budget rally car and no they went on with no trouble at all mate. Cheers Dan
  13. Tried opening a project thread but the moderators “boxed” it. Anyway here are some pics of the green stuff pads and new disks. old disks green stuff pads and new disks what you think? Cheers Dan
  14. Ok mate will do! just got the new disks and green stuff fitted today. Cheers Dan
