I scored from a local salvage the following for my '93 - Left and Right Turn Signals in almost new condition (right side of mine damaged by previous owner but both look tired), antenna (ok, mine damaged by current owner). And two items I've been wanting and finally found. Drum roll please....Instrument cluster with Tach and the tall Arm Rest.

On the Corolla, installed my CleanAce (quite fiddly and annoying to fit, but it could have been a lot worse



On the Soarer, installed the refurbished HVAC unit - hooray for no more LCD screen bleed Plus it came with brighter button lights which will match with the rest of the accenting of the car (HKS purple from the coilovers, grounding kit, cam gears and cam covers once they get painted)

Cylinders 1 and 2 on the intake, 1 and 4 on the exhaust. Crank around the pulley with a 3/4ths socket (clockwise) until the distributor points 180 degrees where it used to, 3 and 4 on intake and 2 and 4 on exhaust. Intake is .008", exhaust is .013", hot and cold same spec. Tighten locknuts, check again, button everything back up and enjoy. This was on the TE72, though, with trusty and simple pushrods and rocker arms. I never had the guts to pop the cover on a F head but I think the Haynes manual goes into it.

Today, rebuilt the power steering idler pulley and got the belt on and redid the valve adjustment AGAIN (although she's still ticking a little). But hey, overboosted power steering for the first time in many years!

Gave my FXGT a full cut and polish, and cut all the previous owners bum and scrape marks off the body, save one or two which I'll do when I can be bothered. Last thing I want to do is polish my own car after painting and polishing everybody else's cars

Destroyed my original passenger side strut which has 425k miles on it.

This strut has endured 100+ 4th to 2nd downshift arabic style drifts. More than 100+ jumps. This one finally let go after breaking my personal record.

There are some railroad tracks that have a 45 degree launch angle. Just before you hit them there are about 5 warning signs to slow down, stop before crossing, etc.

Anyway I was coming home really late and made sure the coast was clear. I couldn't help but to accelerate knowing that either way this wasn't going to end good. The end result was, what I felt was about 5 feet in vertical gain, and 25+ feet of travel as I measured the tire marks upon landing.

Only casualty thus far is one gas tank in 2007 from bottoming out too hard, and the passenger side strut blew out from the bottom.


Went to autozone, got one $60 gabriel strut, and 15 minutes back on the road.

1995 rolla dx 5spd. A bajillion miles on the original engine and tranny.

Fitted a new front left corner lamp as the shitty taiwanese one had faded internally, and fitted a new right rear tail light assembly, as the old one had split and let in what turned out to be an awful lot of water. Looks A LOT smarter now
