  • AE92 Build

    Hi everyone, this is my first project build car. I have a ae102r corolla which I have done work on, but never done a build to this extent.

    A mate of mine traded a case of corona's for this car off some guy wanting to get rid of it. It had been sitting in a locked garage for 3 years with no rego and prior to that only been driven around locally. He was the original owner and bought it new from the Toyota dealership. It has 145,000km on the clock which I'm pretty happy with. I ended up buying this car off my mate for a few hundred which was the price for the replaced door and guard which he had purchased to fix the damaged ones on the car.

    The engine is staying stock as this car is being built for my girlfriend.

    My mate already took the interior out of this car for his corolla. So Ive picked up a full ae93 sx interior, door trim and all which should look pretty nice.

    I will be re sprayed the corolla in either a red or a white still have decided on the exact colour yet.

    For the stereo It has the original tape deck in it which I'm going to keep in it because it looks pretty sweet having that there. But other than that I haven't put a lot of thought into it yet.

    I got my hands onto the car about 4 weeks now and made some good progress on it so far. The heavy rain we had for a week in Sydney slowed down progress as I couldn't get much done as the car is out doors.

    Hope you enjoy!

    This is what I had to work with. I cleaned the engine bay because it was greasy and grimy. Went to town with the degreaser and got that thing looking a lot better. The original owner was a smoker so he would of smoked in the car for at least 15 - 16 years of it. The interior plastics were dirty and ash trays still had ash and cigarette buds in them...

      Removed outside door trims unfortunately when removing the rear passenger side trim off it tore paint and all straight to bare metal leaving a good ditch in the paint which I ended bogging it up. While I was back there tapped out the dent in the wheel arch as much as I could but Its pretty thick steel so bogged the imperfections.

      Cleaned the interior plastic and gave the carpet a vacuum. Looks a hell of a lot better than how i got it.

        While I had the car jacked up decided to paint the calipers for that extra 25kw!!
        I will be taking the disc off and giving them a good clean up after ive finished painting the car.

            Looks good! You seem very organized which is always handy, should turn out real well, keen to see the finished product
            I'm slightly obsessed with the Third Generation, Honda Prelude.

                Hey there, nice progress, looks like you got a good deal.. I'm curious as to how you got the window handles off without breaking them? I have could to the conclusion that there is a special technique to do so as I ended up breaking two handles in an overzealous attempt to access the central locking solenoids behind the door cards..

                              Hey mate, Thanks, Yeah there is a sort of "U" shape clip behind the window winder that holds it into place. That has to come off first before you can remove the window winder. I found a little picture that will help you out.

                              They show you need some sort of special tool which I have never used it my life. I use the rag technique Were they show you put this tool i just use a rag, so slide the rag under the window winder right to the end and the clip should pop out...takes a second to do.

                              Let me know how this goes.
