Toronto area etc is considered down south where I live haha. I live in Northwestern Ontario, Kenora specifically. It's about 2 hours from Winnipeg.

I am coming up with a list of paint projects for this spring that I want to do.
2. Paint Front Calipers and Rear Drums: I have not thought about which colour to paint them yet, but anything would look better then rust. Any suggestions or ideas?

Nothing says "check out my stock brakes!" more than painting your drums a really bright color. Razz

In my opinion, you can't go wrong with black for brakes. Wink

What a beautiful day! +10 Celsius. Big change from yesterdays -10 Celsius. I couldn't resist from going to the car wash. Thought Id share some pics








Then I decided to wash the inside of my new corner lights... lol! Just kidding. But unfortunately my corner lights are very poorly sealed! Not only did water get in them, soap got in them Twisted Evil I took them out and am letting them evaporate overnight then im going to see if I can seal them up a bit better. See the soap Embarassed



While I had my lights out, I tried removing my broken A/C line so its not just hanging loose. Couldnt do it. I cant believe how tight the bolts are! Soaked em in PB blaster and shall try again tomorrow.

Yeah, the lights really transformed it! Looks much nicer now! I'm really glad I told you to get the black ones like those instead of the smoked chrome ones.

And yeah, poor sealing is common on those corner lights, but the head lights are quality Smile

Yes, it was really great advice!

I sealed the crap out of the corners last night with this stuff called Clear Automotive Goop. I sealed around everywhere I thought it was leaking, perhaps a little more then needed. Hopefully they wont leak anymore and hopefully its not too noticeable when I put them in the car.

Great job man, that's exactly what I had to do with mine... I used clear caulk though (yours stuff probably works better).

Hmmm, Just found a 1.8L 16Valve Engine with only 135 kms on it. It came out of a 1999 Corolla. The guy is asking $400. Sounds like it is a 7A-FE but not sure and sounds like it is just the engine. Do you think it would fit? What 1.8L engines did the 1999 Corolla come with?

If it is a 7A-FE, might help take the vibration away on my header by lifting the engine and exhaust pipe up off the sub-frame...Plus I could paint it and replace all the rusty parts and detail my engine bay while swapping...The thought gets me excited

Ignore that last post, not sure what I was thinking lol

I raised my car this morning to inspect my header (making sure its not fatiguing from all the rattling). I also took some pics of my Trans mount and my control arms. I would like to replace all of my mounts, control arms and bushings and ball joints. Heres some pics (I feel sorry for whoever will be replacing them).












This must be that new StainING Steel lol
