I got this car in a fairly good condition though there was a ton of work that needed to be done on it. It was very drivable though.
Mine is a 1992 Toyota Corolla AE100 SE-L (Limited) with a 1500cc 5A-FE motor and a 5spd C50 Manual Transmission gearbox.
It came stock with climate control, power mirrors, central locking, rear mounted air purifier among other extras...

Initially  intended to keep the car as stock as possible but due to peer influence from fellow petrolheads I have now began transforming it into the ultimate sports AE100 fully upgraded with performance and luxury addons.

The following are the mods i have done as well as what I intend to do.

EXTERIOR:

BZ touring front grill
DEPO Black casing Crystal headlamps and Corner lights
LED parking lights
BZ Touring front bumper (Meshed out)
BZ touring fog lamps running 100Watts H3 bulbs
Full body respray
LLumar tint all round
SE badge replaced with "20v"
Aftermarket wind deflectors

INTERIOR

KENWOOD KDC U3049 head unit
Alpine SP 619 6X9 rear speakers
Pioneer 6X6 front speakers
AE101 240km/h clock
AE101 GT 9000rpm tachometer
AE101 Corolla FX-GT SuperStrut Momo leather steering wheel
BZ touring shift boot bracket
100% leather shift boot and leather wrapped gear knob
OEM armrest extender with removable cupholders
OEM trunk lid liner
OEM Toyota multibox
OEM Rear Air purifier
OEM Roof mounted air purifier
OEM twitter pods and tweeters
OEM Corolla AE101 BZ touring Wagon sun visors
OEM Clean box
OEM Climate control
OEM Footwell lights
OEM AE101 under seat tray
OEM Altezza RS200/ Lexus IS300 Sports pedals
OEM key ring light



ENGINE AND SUSPENSION

*King Springs on all four
*KYB shocks
                           **TO BE REPLACED WITH Coilovers
BZ touring 266mm Rear disc conversion
275mm AE111 superstrut front discs and Twin pot calipers
Catalytic converter removed
2.25" Aluminized steel exhaust pipe with GReddy backbox
4A-GE 20v Blacktop engine
HKS full grounding kit
D1 Spec Oil Catch can
c160 6speed MT ECU
5spd Custom C52 Manual gear box with TRD LSD and Final Drive 4.5
OEM AE101 JDM Corolla GT Front Strut Bar
OEM AE101 24mm front anti-roll bar (stabilizer)
OEM AE100 14mm rear anti-roll bar (stock)
Corolla Ae101 New Ultra Racing 2 point rear strut bar
SAFEBRAKE Braided brake lines (TOY-19)
Full Aluminium 2-Core radiator
15" 4x100 alloy rims and 195/50 R15 Pirelli tyres


****I will keep updating as I continue with the build!*****

So HERE IS THE CURRENT LOOK...but I will tell you the whole story as to how I got HERE!

So the first thing I did when I got it was to fix the minor paint damages so I decided to do a complete paint job....I did not document the full respray process but I am happy to share with you some pictures of the look thereafter....

After driving it around for some months, I then decided to do an engine rebuild!

GB's Corolla AE100 SE Limited from Kenya  Mybuil23

The rebuild was a success and by then I was satisfied with the outcome.

I bought the air vent grilles on eBay and replaced the old broken ones...

One of the fuel injectors had failed so I had to replace...

Here I decided to change the backbox. It looked great to me but the sound was deafening. I hate very loud backboxes so I had it removed the following day.. Laughing

I have been longing to get rid of the 13" steel rims and finally I got an irresistible offer on these 15" multispoke rims.. These are made in England so I am sure they are of high quality.

I wrapped some 195/50R15 tyres on them and I immediately fell in love with them...

Then went to the fitting center..

A better exhaust tail end fitted and looks nicer than stock. Backbox is still stock though so I was satisfied with the noise level

Next I spent time to replace the worn out clutch. I replaced it with the OEM AISIN clutch kit.

I was looking for the cheapest way to lower the ride height and on eBay.com I found a listing for Megan Racing lowering springs. Yes, lowering springs are the cheapest way to lower the ride height safely although not the best as I found out later.. Coilovers are the best-100%

so yeah, the car looked awesome but there are draw backs as I will now tell you.
The lowering springs were very soft so body roll was worse than the previous springs. Carrying just two people meant the car dropped even further and thats it..I couldn't even leave the parking garage.
Honestly I hated going over speed bumps as I would scrape my undercarriage each time..so you learn to curse each time you see a speed bump.
To cut the long story short, I removed the lowering springs and installed back the raised ones...One day I will get BC racing coilovers....one day!

Now that I intend to upgrade the engine in the near future, I decided to start by upgrading the rear brakes. I removed the stock bottle tops in the name of drum brakes and replaced them with some AE101 BZ touring 266mm discs and calipers.. It was an easy swap as these were a direct bolt on with no modifications needed.

These are the pictures I managed to take of the conversion.
