    Default #PaskudaProject Corolla Ke70 build..or at least my take on it.

    After I sold my ke70 wagon, Ive been meaning to do another one but a little more cooler. So, thought Id try my hands on a sedan version. Why not, right? It is the coolest Corolla ever made. Thats not even my opinion, thats a fact folks.

    Out with the old








    My inspiration




    And in with the new..WINGIN' IT



































    Any tips and tricks as to how I can get full roll down on my window or anything else along the way would be HIGHLY appreciated.

    Thanks,
    -Matt

    What you drifter guys can do with lexan is very impressive...! Love the old wagon. This should be great.

    Thanks. We too like to be scale

    Started reworking the bumper to match the actual car. Not really sure what particular year he is running or from what generation but I can tell you its a pain keeping the contour of the lexan in check. Need to let it dry before I can finish sanding it.





    Also finished these gems. Waiting to dry so I can shorten the cooling fins on the oil pan to make a little more scale.

    Thank you sir. Its probably because i copied the parts for a real manual crank window actuator. Wont be able to see it unfortunately with the door frame skin on. Also one would need tiny fingers to manually crank it. My fat fingers wont cut it.

    So, can anyone point me in the right direction on how I would go about making a header? Honestly couldn't find anything.

    UPDATE


    First set of ITB's and runners










    Since the shorties were uneven and didnt provide enough high-end power, I decided to make a longer set. Plus
    Corollas have a reputation of being screamers up top so I built to suit. Plus they came out more even second time go





    Trying out a couple of finishes but ended up going with gold to match the pulleys




    Bending styrene over the stove..Its a lot worse than it sounds. Only after my apartment smelled like burnt hair did I come to the conclusion that I need a heat-gun..

    The plus side is I learned to make headers. Downside is they came out like racing headers. Im quite content to be honest.









    Thanks to the pictures of builds on this fine forum, I shorta (kinda) made a thing that resembles a engine.








    If im honest, its not light. I may or may not end up drilling the pistons out to save whatever weight I can, as I still plan on using this when completed.
