    Default Ryan's 6th Gen Project

    So, it has been a while since I have given an update on my 6th gen.

    Today I was working on it quite a bit. I started doing body work on the quarter panel. I got quite a bit done, all thats left is the glaze putty and fine grit sanding, and then priming and painting it.

    I also finished up the new drivers side door.

    I am going to re-paint the wheels silver, until I can get some new wheels for it.

    After that, I am going to paint the underside of the hood, and door jambs.

    I also installed an oil catch can, replaced the valve cover gasket, ran some BG intake cleaner through it, finished the red-out of the tail lights, put in some Nokya yellow low beams, and Nokya purple high beams. I also added some mesh to the front bumper, and smoked the side markers and turn signals.

    I got the arm rest cover on, and a new shift boot.

    In a couple of weeks, we are going to be getting the transmission installed.


    Once I finish the quarter panel tomorrow, I am going to snap some pics of it.

    you have too much time on your hands. lol.

    We want pics. Are you gonna use hvlp to spray it? Trying to blend in the clearcoat is a little tricky.

    Yeah, I have been working on them pretty much every spare second I have that it is not nasty outside. I should be finishing the body work up tomorrow if all goes as planned. Once I finish it up, I am going to rattle can it until we get it painted, so it looks halfway decent until then. lol.

    hit me up if you got any problems painting. I by no means know a lot about painting, but I have sprayed my car so I might be able to help if its not too technical.

    I have sprayed a couple of different cars myself. I am by no means a professional body man, but I just take my time and make sure everything is prepped properly and that it gets plenty of time to cure and everything.

    Thanks joe, I will let you know.

    Well, I took a few pics today of some of the progress I have made with it...


    Here are the red-out tails.



    You can see the mesh here.



    Blacked out side markers and turn signals.



    E-brake boot I got off an Infiniti.



    Shift boot.



    The door I got for it.




    I will take pics of the headlight sometime when it is dark, so you can see them in their full glory.

    Here is the body work I am doing..



    It had a nice crease down the quarter panel, and some nice annoying dings here and there.

    As you can see, the paint job they did was extremely sketchy. There was NO primer under the black. Just the previous red paint.





    I have it completely sanded down now, and am going to prime it when I get up, and rattle can it to make it look halfway decent until we repaint the whole car.

    It turned out pretty decent.

    Ok, here are some more pics I took today of her.

    I need to wash it really bad, its all dusty except where I rattle canned it.



    There used to be a NASTY crease all down the quarter panel, I did as best I could. I also filled some dings on the door, and some dings on the quarter.



    Here are the pics of the headlights that I promised.

    Yeah, the yellow ones are the brightest that I have tried. It is ridiculous how bright they are.

    The second brightest are the purple ones, and the the worst I have had are the blue ones.


    Another thing. People have told me that the plastic connector will melt with these bulbs, but I havent seen the slightest sign that they have even gotten close to melting yet, so dont be worried about that.

    yea some people have told me that about the purple ones, because they are rated at over 90 w. Then again, friends have had them for months without problems.

    i guess the safest way is to get one of those harness adapters.

    yea my bro has yellow ones in his celica and they are nice and bright!!!

    So, yesterday vikingjz, tuner4life, and I went to the local pick-a-part and found two 5sp. corollas. I told my dad about them, and he said we could go get the trans. today.

    So, we went this morning and got the trans. pulled, and we are going to be putting it in this coming weekend!

    We also got the flywheel so we could get it resurfaced before hand.

    All we have left to do now is get the clutch kit for it.

    The trans feels really good. There isnt much play at all, and it feels smooth.


    Oh, and for those with broken cupholders in their 5th gens, I have found a much better option.

    The cupholders in the 7th gen corollas have a much better design, and fit very well. They work the same way as our factory ones, by pushing them to open, but they are built much better.

    Lol, nah, I am thinking Exedy. They are reasonable, and pretty good quality.

    Oh, and one more thing. I cant remember for the life of me what the rule of thumb is for breaking in a clutch.. I would appreciate it if someone would refresh my memory.

    Exedy is good. They are actually owned/made by Daikin Clutches, who are an OEM manufacturer, so no worries on quality.

    Usually they tell you to take it easy on it for 500-100 miles.
