Thread: Snoopy Da Rolla

  1. #1

    Default Snoopy Da Rolla

    1st off the story behind this car is, my friend and i were looking for a small pickup or suv for 1000 or less that was a toyota, nissan or a mitsubishi mighty max. Long story short he ended up getting a minivan from his folks. Well my other friend is recently divorced (ex husband was cheating on her using drugs ect) and has no transportation other than a bicycle that shes been riding everywhere. so she saved up some money and wanted the same thing, a truck or small suv with decent gas milage for under a grand and little to no work needed.

    well after 2 months of searching we almost got a 94 jeep cherokee with the 4.0 6 and 4wd, but the girl wouldnt come down from 900 dollars and the truck needed a bit of work (cheap brakes, blown shocks, needed body work, steered kinda funny, leaked oil) so i offered 500 to the who who said she would give me a call later in the day.

    well i think she ended up selling it or trading it in. So while browsing craigslist i ran across a 88 toyota corolla for 600 dollars. Called the guy, talked to him, and arranged to look at it. Well longer story short, me and my friend ended up getting it for 420.

    well it drove, ran lil rough but had a new battery, dizzy, fan, 2 new 13's on alloys even. Though it was interesting driving it 8 miles to my friends house with no brakes (they didnt work)

    so after awhile i found the master cylinder was bad so i got it replaced for free (under warrenty from discount advance). This pas weekend i did this

    Bled brakes
    replaced fuel filter
    cleaned the car with gumout (worked damn well)
    advanced the timing
    replaced the broken driver headlight.

    so heres the new junkyard list
    mid right a/c vent
    pass rear door window (has a nice aluminum panel right now)
    seat belt recepticals
    dash
    radio
    fan, someone put a universal fan in place of the oem one which seems like it moves less air.
    shocks, i think i saw a almost new set on a car in the junkyard
    rear wiper arm, yes its a wagon
    1 door arm rest
    jack

    engine needs new seals so it'll quit leaking oil
    also needs belts

    i just ordered the following
    2 front rotors, after 20% off came to 35 bucks
    front axxis metal master pads (cant beat 13 dollars shipped from rock auto)
    fram extra guard air filter, again 10 bucks from rock auto with a 3 dollar rebate

    dont worry im getting paid for all this, its kinda fun to cause the car is so simple. but dont worry i just mess with this car on saturday and the gts i mess with during the week.

    brakes are on, car stops ok, going to bleed the master on monday

    kinda interesting the car came with solid rotors and the new ones were vented


    speedo wanders if u get past 60, ill repair that later



    it does sound awsome though with a rotted out muffler and no air filter lid, just the filter and its base (filter media is on top not on the sides)

    well it made a 200+ mile round trip today with no issues

    also i was dumb and forgot to bleed the master itself and adjust the rear drums, after me and keelen did those the car stops damn good

    also got some ebay headlight bulbs for 4 dollars shipped that work very well, and has a very slight bluish tint to them but its kinda faint. stock wattage too, after that i replaced all the bulbs cept the front turns.(brake light went out so i did em all)

    im going to go yarding this weekend though to grab more parts for it though

    oh and i won a kyb gr2 for 16 dollars shipped, now i just need to get the other side, good thing theres a rolla in the cheap yard with a new suspension

    i did, im building it up for a close friend

    though when ever she gets a new ride i get this one back

    so i get to have fun building the thing, work at my own pace and i get paid for it, win



    Im almost done though, it just needs the muffler welded on, a cv axle, a lil audio work, and trying to convince her to drop 280 coin on a weber 32/36 and thats all folks
