"nostalgia"

Postby onelungderryl » Thu Apr 18, 2013 1:13 am

First off I apologize for the lack of detail. My old thread went down with the site and I'm too lazy to salvage it. So here's some pictures with a little bit of detail.

August 1st, 2008 I picked up my 1985 Toyota Corolla GT-S off the original owner for $1150. I found it on craigslist listed as a "TOYOTA CARROLA"

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

The car had 304,xxx miles, original paint, led windshield washer squirters, alarm, and keyless entry. I later found out on the drive home that it had 7 quarts of oil in the engine and then eventually developed a rod knock. So I swapped all my parts from my coupe which had been totaled from being rear ended.

Image
Image

Anyways heres the build in order (sorta). You'll notice I go from jdm back to usdm, then back to jdm, then usdm, and finally to where we are today cby front, jdm rear.

Image
Image

ACT 6 puck unsprung clutch installed in 2009. It's been on 3 engine's, through daily driving, and drift days (STILL IN THE CAR TO THIS DAY!)
Image

Got some centerlines for it

Image
Image
Image
Image

Did the whole dry ice and acetone thing put back in the full interior after.

Image
Image

Bought a blacktop from a Canadian importer and it was junk

Image

Got a silvertop from a local importer.

Image
Image

SS works waterline

Image

Pulled my 16 valve out.

Image

20 valve in getting wired

Image

Got fender flares, jdm bumpers.

Image

Decided I didn't like how it all looked. Sold the wheels, bumpers, and the kit I had and got some Hoshino G5's. Went drifting at Thunderhill

Image
Image

Cleaned the engine bay up.

Image

Installed a dash cap.

Image

Replaced my wornout kyb agx combo for stance, modified my obx exhaust

Image
Image

Traded my digital gauge cluster to a friend for work on some door bars

Image

Drifting at the fatlace event 2010

Image

Jerry (jzxseven on here) took some amazing photos of my car at the old alameda naval base.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Went back to JDM.

Image
Image

Got a rs-yasu induction box and sold it

Image

Built a spool and 4.77 ring and pinion

Image

Back to usdm bumpers and drifted at asb 2011. Must go back to horse thief mile..

Image
Image

Had my 15x7.5 -1 turned into a 15x9 -22

Image
Image

Other events. Mostly sonoma drift (local track)

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Crashed car street drifting, then crashed car at sonoma. Had to have my fronts rebarreled to a 15x8 -23 since they didn't do half size barrels (going 9 fronts and 10 soon).

Image
Image

Redid front fenders with metal ones and got a cby front bumper from Gabe. New engine (blacktop), t3 tension rods, trd sway bar, jdm rear bumper, solo8 led tail lights, nardi classic, new rear end housing, probably other stuff. Pics from various drift events. Sonoma and fatlace/hellaflush event.


Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

How nostalgia sits as of today. Thats her name because the car reminds me of my first 86 from highschool, except less beat (err was), but still reliable and all over the bay. I'll try and keep this one updated.

Sorry for the lack of updates. This is my cat Apollo

Image

Found mk1 celica supra in the junkyard and pulled the axle.

Image

Cut off the original mounts and busted out the grinder.

Image
Image
Image

Drove down to fresno to trade parts with Jeremy for welding on the ae86 mounts on the axle. Some of the cars at HYPE racing

Jermeys sr20 corolla

Image

sr20 vw beetle

Image

2jzgte celica belongs to Terry the fabricator and shop owner. He did the welding on the mounts.

Image
Image

much penetration
such bead
wow

Image

Welded the open differential (for now)

Image

Installed. Unfortunately richmond gear sent me a reversed cut set of gears so I had to return them. Currently running 3.90s but will be going to a 4.88 once I get the w58 ready.

Image

Broke my bumper had a friend fix it. Repainted it.

Image
Image


Picked up a noby booth induction box

Image
Image

Currently the car is down waiting on my w58 to go in. I'm sick of rebuilding and replacing driveline. I'm working on my design for a w58 to t50 adapter plate. If you're interested in one please PM me.

So I sold my autopower roll bar. It was good for what I used it for but extremely heavy and had a large roof gap. Chris from Car N Bike Moto is going to help me make a 6 point with door bars. Thats after this whole transmission deal...

Look how much space there is for activities!

Image

Pulled my transmission finally gave it to Mike (high_moon). Heres my ACT clutch. This has been on three engines and in this car since I bought it! 30,000 miles, countless clutch kicks, and 2+ hours of commute for two years and still grabs hard!

Image

Girlfriend surprised me with an awesome gift. NST steering spacer. Apparently they have a 30% off sale with the promo code AE86

Image

Picked up a 3.7kg toda flywheel for a steal and some ARP hardware for the flywheel.

Image

Visited high_moon to drop off his transmission/pick up my usdm bumper/say hi

Image

Saw Takumi's car at Oakland pick n pull...

Image


Heres a video from March 2013. Driving was kind of shaky since that was my first event in 7 months. The miata that I am tandeming with was supercharged at the time. I really want to put in more seat time...

I decided on removing the door decals/molding since I decided on changing the look of my car. Heres the easier way of doing so..

Removing decals, pin stripping, quarter panel chip protector, and molding adhesive is a pain without the correct tools. Using a razor blade or your thumb is hard work/stupid so pick up yourself one of these (it was about $10 from a local auto body supplier). Don't bother buying the adapter they they to sell you, it will fit in your drill chuck no problem.

Image

Follow the directions on the package (keep drill angled at 60 degrees and below 4000rpm)

Before:
Image

During:
Image

Messing around:
Image

After:
Image
Image

Note the rubber everywhere. Use eye protection and wear a mask since its pretty messy.

So first thing before I could fill my rear arches was welding up the seam that ripped and the cracked fender from dolly and hammering it too much. My buddy let me borrow his harbor freight special (non gas mig) welder. Excuse my welds, first time welding and I burned through initially!

Image
Image

Terrible I know. I sealed it up with some filler and rubber coating after I smoothed it out with the grinder. I bet when it rubs it will all fall apart.

Thank you grinder. Cut off the bumper tabs since I was rubbing on them.
Image

Before fill, ignore the saggy jblood.
Image

Filled the arch sanded it.

Image

Primered :)

Image
Image

I fixed that "wavy" portion seen in this picture
Image

done with this side!
Image

Picked up my custom splined act clutch and had my toda flywheel resurfaced
Image

Started on my rear finish panel. The original owner tried pushing it out himself and made things worse. I wish I could just find one to have someone weld in but its hard to find a straight one... Before I started

Image

Best I could do :?
Image

Don't worry, I ground down all the rust with the grinder before I put filler.
Image

Looking to trade my LED sprinters for redlines to hide majority of that damage.

My car desperately needs some aero mirrors.

Also if you didn't know my car is influenced by Yuki Saito of THE SEXY KNIGHTS. He drives a chaser now, heres his old 86.

Fiberglassing 101

You'll need supplies and equipment
Image

The most important things to remember while working with fiberglass... Always wear gloves/respirator/eye protection and work in a open environment!

That being said you'll also need...

Fiberglass mat
Fiberglass resin
Fiberglass "kitty hair"
Something mechanical that sands
A drill with bits
Electric screw driver (nice to have but not necessary)
Wood screws
Stir sticks (they were free when I bought the fiberglass stuff)
Acetone/rag to use for cleaning
Disposable paint brushes (dollar store)
Large piece of cardboard
Disposable container (for mixing)
Some good shears for cutting fabric
Patience

First thing you're going to want to do is sand down the edges that need to be connected. In this case there is no jagged edges (we will get to broken aero later) so it was pretty basic.

Image

You want the pieces to be thin to connect the two. You don't need to remove much material, I'd say an inch from the edge is fine maybe too much.

Image

Image

Next align the pieces. I used a block of wood underneath to do so.

Image
Image

Then predrill a stir stick (or piece of wood) with four holes that are spaced fairly far apart. You want to use a larger diameter bit for this than what you'll be using on the fiberglass piece.

Image

After you get one side lined up, do the other sides with the same method (note: I only did two sides on this skirt since everything lined up fine and didnt flex)
Image
Image

Backside
Image

One piece again!
Image

Pour some acetone on a rag and wipe the area clean.
Image

Both skirts clean and ready for resin.
Image

Next precut some of your fiberglass mat to the correct size/shape so you're not messing around with it while its drying. Ideally you want the damaged/cut area to be covered by 2 inches in either direction.
Image

Heres what I used. Evercoat brand fiberglass resin.
Image


Now for some fun. Take your disposable container and pour your resin in. Read the directions carefully on the packaging to obtain the correct mixing ratio with the hardener.
Image

When mixed correctly the resin should change to a different color.
Image

Next place your precut fiberglass mat onto that large cardboard box. Then apply resin onto the mat using the paint brushes.
Image

You want to make sure that its completely saturated.

If you're not wearing gloves already go put some on! Pick up the presoaked mat and position it onto your piece. Be sure to leave enough slack to go around the screws.
Image

Next grab our trusty paint brush and pour the resin onto the mat. Apply the resin throughout to attach the mat to the inside of your piece trying to remove any air voids.
Image
Image


Then you're done! With step one... now its a waiting game depending on the humidity, temperature, and how well you mixed your resin.

Also I ziptied my bumper together so it wasn't in 6 pieces.
Image
Image

Excited! I'm going to extend the bottom of the origin rear bumper a little bit to match the skirts better.
Image

Fiberglassing part 2

First off, since you're reading this give yourself a pat on the back. It shows good character since you didn't give up. Good job.

The next step is to remove the screws/wood from the skirts. After take out your trusty dremel with a sanding wheel and lightly sand around the screw holes.

Image

Next grab your short strand fiberglass hair or "kitty hair"

Image

Not that kitty hair...

Image

Thats more like it. Grab a piece of card board to use your body fill spatulas to mix and apply.

Image
Image

After its done drying use a "block sander" with 60-80 grit sand paper on it.

Image

Hold the block sander flat moving in the same direction until the part is smooth with no "high" edges on the ends that were connected. It's ok that there is voids, we are getting to that...

Image
Image
Image

Body filler can be used to fill whats left
Image

Same deal, mix apply.
Image

Image

Sand, primer, grab a beer you did it.

Decided to man up and try welding my sidemarkers and rear hatch holes up. Grabbed my "dropvent" hood I had laying in the backyard and cut off some metal

Image

Made a pattern and cut it out
Image

Skills with the grinder
Image
'
Ugly I know.
Image

Again, skills with the grinder
Image

1/4 panel
Image

Tacked in
Image

Basically finished the rear tail light section
Image
Image

Fixed that radius
Image

Lots of runs, it was cold out when I painted
Image

Overall.
Image


Getting there. I need to glass my front bumper but its been damp out. Still don't know what color I want to go with. Its between red, black, and almond.

Finally started on the drivers side body work...
Image

Made another block off plate and got it welded in
Image

Patience worked out on this side and I didn't warp the panel at all. Lesson learned. #amatureweldporn
Image
Image

Rear finish panel under the passenger tail light is finished.

Before
Image

Now
Image
Image

No more buckle over the wheel arch and no more quarter panel side marker :D

Put in the time at the shop the other day and finished up the prototypes on the lathe. The final design for the pilot bearing extension will be made of steel to avoid the possibility of the bearing "falling out" because of thermal expansion. I checked clearance with my custom ACT clutch disk (PN #6200107) and even if the clutch disk explodes and the face of the flywheel is worn it should not make contact with the pilot bearing spacer. 8-)

Also I will offer the weld on throw out bearing spacer separate from the kit for the 1uz guys or anyone who has the nite parts bell housing and need an extension. The extension is 0.75" thick but can be made to your spec. $50 plus pay pal, tax, and shipping on the extensions alone.

Image

Note: I used the "mid" shifter position, this shifter position will require cutting the tranny tunnel. However, RA64 RA65 and MA61 will go straight in.
Image

This is the MK3 shifter in the MK2 supra/RA64 celica shifter housing.
Image

Very slight shifter lean, comparible to the TRD short shift for the t50
Image

Easy remedy. Threw the shifter in the vice, heated it with a propane torch, and bent it with a jack handle. Look for a short shift kit soon!
