PostSubject: '95 G-Touring Wagon - The Torpedo   Sat Nov 02, 2013 5:45 am

This is my Corolla, she's a '95 G-Touring wagon. Posted it in the intros section before but decided to put up a thread here. Bit rough around the edges, but overall a solid car. Currently being used to commute the 100km or so to college since last year and has been pretty much faultless!

She has the 1.5 5afe engine, though at some stage I'd like to swap in a 4age, but that'll have to wait as I'm still a student and don't have much money to spare! Wheels are oem gxi wheels with center caps which will do me for now til I can afford a nice set of jdm wheels.

Being a jap import, she has a few nice extras, such as electric windows, electric folding mirrors, air con, a full set of oem floor mats including the one for the boot, cup holders and armrest.

I've added a C-grille, pressed jdm plates, oem Toyota flare, oem toolkit, removed the door decals as they were a bit tatty, removed the spots as they were in bad shape, removed the rear wiper and motor as it wasn't working and I think the rear looks a bit cleaner without it!

Plans for it are:
- New set of tyres
- Lowering springs
- Underseal
- New exhaust
- A front splitter of some sort
- OEM front strut brace

Going to keep it simple for now til I have to funds to give her a proper set of wheels & stance :PTime for a few photos, thanks for reading!

Thanks for the comments lads! Smile
Small update, picked up a set of part worn (good as new!!) Michelins last night, will get them fitted over the weekend. On the drive to collect the tyres however, I started to feel a bit of a wobble from the front of the car, it got worse/more violent and I think it's the passenger side driveshaft that's in a bad way, limped home and going to have it looked at tomorrow Sad It's not easy!!

Thanks for the comments lads, hopefully I can do that potential justice in time!

Have a nice update today, wheels!! Came across a set of 14 inch Enkei RP01's for sale the other day, collected them today! Having my Michelins put on them and just need to get some extended wheelnuts and spigot rings to fit them. Should look well on her!



And one alongside my cousins Altezza on Works!

Update!! New wheel nuts and spiggot rings arrived today from Raceways in the UK, so I wasted no time in fitting the Enkeis! I actually had no plans to put wheels on it but when I came these at a good price I had to have them :PThey're a lower offset and an inch wider than the old wheels so they fill the arches much better...really happy with them! Just need to spray the drums and calipers black...then lower Smile







I also debadged the rear end the other evening for something to do!

Me too Razz It really really needs it!


I've a little update for this today Smile The exhaust pipe between the mid box and back box has seen better days so I'm going to replace it...so then I thought why not add on a decent back box too! Went online and found this FGK box, came off an Impreza I think...but it'll do me fine. Just have to get it welded together with some new pipe now!





Should sound good and look a lot better than the one that's currently on it!

Small update today. There was an aftermarket alarm system put in at some point which doesn't work so I pulled it all out today! Nothing too exciting, just a big ball of wires Razz
