I'm Dark and I've popped over from the AE92 Owners Club. I've joined as my friend Sam (who isn't the most mechanically minded person out there when it comes to cars) has just bought an AE101 corolla 1.6 Si hatchback, after writing off his Clio (the less said about the Clio the better).
Anyhow the car was a cheap £500 ebay find (something that wasn't spares or repairs and had some decient amount of M.O.T), so as to be expected the car has a few little problems with it that need sorting, hence the joining here to get some more info.
here is said corolla
So far we know it needs, a new headlight as one has a snapped bracket (looks like it's had a gentle bump on the front).
Repair or replace the rear spoiler as cracked from what looks like the car being revered into a lamppost at some point in it's life.
A new radiator (the fins are starting to go on this one) but it still works fine.
Several million scratches touched up, painted and machine polished out
Again same to do with a few little dents and dings
and finally a finally a good service.
