Speaking of light weight, I weighed one of my voxx rims today (with tire mounted) and it weighed 35 lbs.

Plus I finished up painting my trunk garnish and managed to paint my center caps for my rims today. They are in there curing stages. Heres a couple pics for now:

Ill wait another 2 hours and then Im going to pop one of the center caps on to see how it matches, so excited, cant wait lol

Oh and what do I search for on ebay to find Tein Stech lowering springs for my 97 corolla? and what spring rate do I need to make sure they are? I am looking for OEM ride comfort or better.

You gotta search 98 Corolla Teins. The Stechs are very comfortable with a firmer feel than the OEMs. You'll love them!


Btw, I want pics with the trunk garnish on! Nice job on the paint, did you use any clear coat?

OK cool, Ive almost got enough saved up for some springs now lol.

and I used 5 base coats and 4 coats of clear on the center garnish. It took a lot for the green to blend in and even out. Im going to wet sand it then buff it to smoothen it out more then it will be ready to go Very Happy

Thanks and I dont think the rust is as bad as I think it is. Compared to most other Canadian cars from the 90's, my car is in pretty good shape...Sort of lol

Cleaning Products I used were: Turtle Wax Car Wash, RGSLABS FW1 Cleaning Wax, RGSLABS CU4 Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner, RGS Labs GP3 General Purpose Cleaner, and ICE Premium Care Interior Cleaner and Protectant (non greasy). Also Have RGSLABS TS2 Tire Cleaner (but didn't use it on those tires lol)

Did more painting today (even though conditions were not ideal). I started my interior transformation and painted the locks, window cranks, and door handles Gloss Black.

Corolla Sound's 97 DX AE101 On-Going Project - Page 33 IMG_5983_zpsbbe0e805

I had wild plans to test my painting knowledge and skills by trying a glitter effect in just the door locks, but I backed out in the end. I was going to spray a primary base of lacquer black met(sparkly) paint, then spray 2 light coats of enamel gloss black, ...then spray a light coat of my Toyota Green and mist the black, then clear it all. ...but I wasnt sure how or if I would like it so I backed out. But I did end up spraying a base of lacquer black met on the locks just to use up the last of the paint (which wasn't even enough for a coat).

The weather was suppose to be perfect for painting, but it wasn't. It was sunny and a high of 7 Celsius with winds of 30-40 km/h. I painted it my cold garage which had an interior temp of 6-8 Celsius, though it felt like it was freezing. but I wanted to get them painted so they could dry and cure so I can install them so I dont have to pull a metal bar to open the door lol

Corolla Sound's 97 DX AE101 On-Going Project - Page 33 IMG_5986_zpsc6759bb9
Theres my metalic base coat lol

and here are my finished products:

Corolla Sound's 97 DX AE101 On-Going Project - Page 33 IMG_6006_zps51ca056a

So thats what happens when you try to paint in when the conditions are not right. The paint is still drying to its handling period which should be soon. Hopefully that stuff which looks like over spray will dust off, but Im affraid I didn't match up the correct base to clear coat window properly in the cold and the paint like froze or something. Im not very happy with the results, might have to go get another set from wreckers lol

It was time to install my freshly painted locks and handles. I came up with an extra "precaution method" to install the parts without scracthing or chipping the paint by using an interior protector product before installing. I wiped the parts and the top; AND the inside of the door panel lock insert hole.

Im not sure if the protector helped at all but I managed to install everything without scratching any paint. Im quite happy with the results.

Now I just need to do something about the speakers. I also wanted to fit my rims today but had some issues with my jacks and jack points (squished the front passenger side jack point). So I am going to wait til tomorrow and see if I can trade or sell my floor jack for another one with more lift. (My current floor jack could probably lift it high enough if it was on top of a 2" piece of wood and jacked to the max height, but Im pretty sure your not suppose to raise a jack to its max height).

On the plus side, I test fitted my green trunk garnish:

Corolla Sound's 97 DX AE101 On-Going Project - Page 33 IMG_6040_zps2cae4955

I actually tried fitting the lights (reg bulbs) into the panel to see if it would light up but I couldn't see anything. It was too windy to continue working so I called it quits. Need to figure out what to do with the extra lights now...

Good work David! Trunk garnish looks real good on there, and the interior bits look really good too, I like that you taped off the actual handle part, gives it a cool colour combo.

That trunk garnish sits very good indeed. And great job on the interior parts painting Smile Are you gonna paint the vents black too?

Thank you guys, it feels good to be able to open my doors again without pulling a metal bar lol

The garnish will actually sit even better once installed, its just kind of hanging in there for that pic. I still have to push it in place and it will look much more flush.

Hey what do those black panel pieces on the doors do? When I installed my '97 door panels, I didn't use those panels because I didn't see the need.

Thats a good question. I have never really thought about there purpose either lol. but if I had to guess I would say it is a support for the top part of the door panel.? I have never removed them

and yes Rachid, I have to paint the vents black now too, and my mirror lol

Successfully installed my rims today:

All of my lug studs are bent (or at least look bent) in the direction of the tire rotation. The front ones were like that too. I also fitted my center caps but I have to wait for it to stop raining and the sun to come out to take more pics. I put the tires to 35 psi and went for a test drive and it felt OK. It feels like these tires are harder or more sensitive to the worn out suspension. I can feel body roll more now.

Also bolted in the trunk garnish. It kind of bulges out in the center but it works. I like how its slightly off coloured, but I dont like how its not as smooth as the rest of the car. Think it needs more clear coat.

And I am still trying to decide what to do about the extra lights I have wired up. They are currently tapped into the running lights. I was thinking of maybe switching them over into the signal lights and somehow fit them into the taillights. Or I could just put them in the trunk somewhere, or just remove them all together. Heres how they are currently wired in:

Looking good David, I see you're having the old rust problem with the suspension too... I think I'll take mine off again in the summer and use some owatrol CIP and paint 'em black again Smile (just like I should owatrol and paint the subframe)

The vents are a must then yes Razz I will be tending to painting my tweeterpod soonishly and since I'm going to paint the center I can't leave the vents behind too Laughing
