  • JDM Corolla in the making.

    Hi guys,

    yes i believe its about time i started a thread for my car, i guess so people know which car is mine at meets and all that sorta stuff

    so yea got this car for christmas last year, my first ever car. Second hand, ex company car with 57000km's on the clock. Looks abused inside and in some corners outside. Never planned on getting one of these because i thought they were ugly and looked like a whale, now i kinda like it though Very glad i didnt end up getting a commodore since i can barely afford fuel for this LOL.


    so yea this is what it looked like the first 2 days i had it..





    got storage?











    So yea as you can see its pretty granny spec, since it was a company of course it has no fancy extras

    So after two days of owning it, i just couldnt bare the sound of the stock system, there was NO bass whatsoever, so i got this:



    800W Schneider Sub and 600W Schneider Amp which is under the drivers seat. It might not be a known brand, but it does the job, and that job isnt exactly bad either

    So after this nothing happened for a while, i then got bored, and did this, inspired by Ascendant Rice's grill.





    I am still deciding on whether to keep this or not, its not painted on its actually just pinstriping tape

    Then again a whole lotta nothing until i decided to jump on the HID bandwagon. Got myself a set of 6000K HIDs from eBay for 80$. Were a ***** to install, cut my hand while reaching into the engine bay, and they flicker. Then one stopped working because a wire wasnt plugged in correctly, and just today after the meet the other one stopped working for a reason i have yet to discover. Oh and i also bought LED parkers off ebay



    I was told installing those parkers would take 10min, i took about 4 hours. Reason being i dropped one of the parkers INSIDE the headlight and had to shake it out again. Then when i plugged it in it didnt work, then tried taking it back out again and GUESS WHAT i dropped it again. But now they work. Better than my HIDs. FML.

    Some artsy pics while nothing happened..





    Then i sort of decided that i had to choose between a style or theme to go with....my choices were either the european Rat look, with the rusty hood and roof rack etc. just rolling on steelies, or racing style with light weight black wheels and black roof and red racing seats and and and.

    Photoshopped it up and liked it, but didnt like the practicality..



    Then one day i got the chance to test fit some Volk Racing CE28N's on my car, and i'm glad i did. But took me ages to get the money together. So while i was saving up, decided to take my scratched hub caps off and roll on steelies, kinda going with that european rat look. Steelies got boring after a while so i did this, yes ive seen it on other cars but they sorta had more dish and more rim.





    I named it mexican spec. lol.

    But then FINALLY after several months i get my stuff sorted and bang! new wheels! Genuine 17" Volk Racing CE28N's. very pleased, love the look of them. I personally think i couldnt have chosen better ones







    This is how it stands today, some of you might have seen it at the meet.

    So my current list of mods:

    -800W Schneider Subwoofer
    -600W Schneider Amplifier
    -6000K HID Bulbs
    -LED Parking/Position Lights
    -Red Grill Surround
    -Half Debadge (SECA and Ascent badge, dont want people to know i have the cheapest model corolla out there lol)
    -Removed Mud Flaps (dont know if this counts as mod, i just add it so the list is longer)
    -17" Volk Racing CE28N in Matt Black
    -mightycarmods.com Sticker!

    next mod will definitely be new springs, just so it sits nice and flush, its sorta flush now just not in terms of height lol. So yea thats everything Thanks for looking

      Looks very good! Nice list of mods and a generally clean car! Glad you didn't do the rat look to an almost brand new car .

      Keep it tasteful Sebby!

                            Nice Corolla

                            Now all you need is a Camry 2.4 conversion and you could build yourself a Euro style hot hatch!!
