There is my Corolla 1997 SD A/T 4A-FE. No options, come just with the clock. No airbag soo if I die, I die like a men lol. I bought the car 1000$, 238 000km. But the old proprietary change timing belt, water pump, put brand new gas tank affraid , brand new brake line and spark plug.

For my part I changed the 4 brakes and the 2 rotors. I changed the filter by a K & N high flow filter who is the same size of the oem filter. I changed the hood who was all rust. And of course tune-up. I also put a tiny radiator from a chevy van in front of the radiator just for cool the transmission oil because my coolant was mixed with the transmission oil. But even after did a flush to the radiator oil returned to the radiator. Soo problem is not coming from the passage of the transmission oil. Soo need to change head gasket. But that very strange I don\'t know because the pression of the coolant is more strong than the motor oil pression. Soo is the coolant who have to enter in the oil pan and no the reverse. And the more strange is that my oil cap is clean I don\'t know ... Anyway I have a radiator in very good condition from a ae101 donor and I will change the gasket.

I did some aesthetic mod. I changed the bulb of my cluster and shift gear(blue). Put some LED strip to the four foot place with a carbon style blue led switch. Change the interioor light, trunk light, license plate light, side corner light and put a kit of HID 6000K on low beam. I put also worn window visor but the double side tape was not very good. Three of them was falling soo I removed them. I broke one of them and the double side tape is still on the door. Next time I will use 3M DOUBLE SIDETAPE!!!

I changed also the stock sound system. My car is a SD soo there was only 2 speakers(front) and no speakers in rear. I put the rear frame with the 6.5'' oem speakers brackets. Changed the radio and all speakers also(Sony Headunit, Alpine Type S 4'' front and Kenwood 6.5'' rear). I wired also a amplifier but I need to make a sub box for a oem 8'' subwoofer from a Lexus that I found in the junkyard. I found also Infinty tweeter with the passive crossover, not installed yet because I don't have a garage and we are in winter in Canada.


Soo here the pics:

4 LED Strips 12'', 2 in front and 2 in the rear. This was installed very professionally with the help of my dad(who is a mechanic btw). No electrical tape. We welded all the connection. The wires of the LED strips are even gauge to allow to move with the seats. You see no cable ; cable management was made wery weel. People just see the blue light.


Carbon toggle switch 20A (not real carbon btw lol) with blue LED for the on/off of the LED strips. I will also use the same for my future fog light. I put the switch next to the e-brake.

Not very good. The half of my cluster bulbs burns after in 3 months. I recommend to buy SMD LED.

You can not change the bulb.




I found this Clarion 7 band equalizer 4 channel with a built in amp of 25w x 4 in the junkyard and you can even control the sound of the subwoofer. Very excited to put this equalizer in my car.

But the equalizer didn't work Sad . No power enter in the equalizer. No light turn on.



All this work:

John-117 build SAM_0161_zps951b2a9b

for nothing. You can see at the left side the equalizer of my dad that he put on his corolla 1993. But it's a 2 channel only.







Pics are from autumn 2012. The car is MORE MORE clean in the interior now. I changed the carpet to match the color of the interior and way better also for the winter. When the car is waxed it's like I have a new car. The paint look very nice when waxed. LED in the foot, HID and all bulbs are installed. I also remove the number in the hood. The secret is to use nail polish remover btw!!!!! I also bought from the scrap TYC headlights OEM style who were like brand new!!! Will take more pictures to show you all mods.

Nice job so far, looks like you are doing well to take care of it. The interior looks especially clean. If you ever need some help with the lighting, just ask me! Looks like you know your way around pretty good Smile

T4 Neo Wedge . Left the stock bulb and right the led bulb. Don't remember the diameter(I had to specified to the seller). But is not the same bulb for the A/C button. Bulb of the A/C is more tiny.

Those pictures are better, I have been meaning to get some for mine, since it's too much work to wire in my own LEDs like I did before. But I didn't think those would work very well how they sit inside the buttons.

They sit like the stock bulb. Just because is LED you have to put them with the good polarity.

I was thinking about the SMD type, but you see, the LED faces the wrong direction.... up into the top or bottom of the switch, not into the button itself.

Yes indeed Chris the LED's are pointed wrong Sad you have to look for a good type of SMD... 'cause some LED's are not bright enough to light up the switch properly Sad

I have been trying abit too... I had one batch that was good, the rest is mediocre or below. Still looking for a nice and bright super white LED that lights up the switches properly. Wink

Not from a Corolla but from a Paseo.

have u opened the cupholder and given it a good clean some times there either dirty which causes hesitation or the spring which is supposed to throw it out when pushed becomes loose it has to be recoiled more tightly with a screw driver


and for the current pics Clap Approve!

They are different cup holder. Mine in my SD corolla is a coil. But in a corolla LE AE102 is a gearing with a spring but I open it and when I reput the spring he doesn't have the same power to open one shoot the cup holder and is very difficult to reput the spring . Next time I dont touch it Do\'oh!

Hey mate I had an idea.... you know how the LED points the wrong way, but I was thinking of using a small bit of tin foil or aluminum tape, formed around and over the LED, to catch and reflect the light forward!

I purchased the 14'' OEM wheels from the Toyota Paseo 1996-1999 at the junkyard. I paid 100$ for the 4 wheels. 7 spokes, 14 lbs each wheel. Very dirty and one wheel has the lip very scratched, also missing the center cap on the 4 rims. I also found a good cupholder. My plan for the wheel will be to repair them with bondo and paint it. Don't know which color for the moment. But maybe gunmetal, gold or white.

I've never heard of fixing rims with Bondo, though I'm not sure what else you'd use. I'd think Bondo would fly right off the first bump you hit on the motorway.
