84 Rolla Hatch

Postby LongIslandElite » Wed Jan 09, 2013 4:47 pm

I found my hatch on Club4AG on 6/16/10 looking like this located in GA just north of Atlanta

Image
Image
Image
Image

I talked with the guy selling it for a while and ended up going to look at the car on 8/30/10 and this is what I see when i get there

Image
Image

The car seemed to be in great shape so I put a deposit down on it and went back to pick it up on 9/5/10 trailered it back to NC where my mom lives and I go to pull it off the trailer and WTF no lights work and I was going back to NY the day after so i had no time with the car but it was mine now so i was crazy happy about it

Image

So I'm back in NY and I started buying parts to fix the car up based off of pics from the sale thread (zerothread?id=62436) First thing I bought for the car was a headlight switch. On 11/23/10 I go to a local tire shop that is behind a service station and I find an AE92 GT-S. I end up talkin with the owner, worked out a price and I brought it home on 11/27/10

Image

I bought the AE92 to take the motor and put it into the AE86. I started buying all the parts for the swap. On 2/18/11 I pulled the motor out and on the stand within 24 hours. Then by 2/22/11 I had the fully taken down other then the crank and pistons.

Image

Motor was clean but I'm servicing the head and replacing all the gaskets. Time gos on and I end up buyin alot more parts for the car. I end up having the car towed to NY and I receive it late at night on 4/1/11 the very next day I change the wheels and put a Grant GT wheel on the car.

Image

By 4/3/11 I had the GT-S front bumper on

Image

By 4/10/11 I had all the wiring worked out for the lights and I started sanding the bumper

Image

I ended up painting the bumpers and hood black on 4/29/11

Image

Painted the rest of the car with white primer on 5/14/11

Image

From 5/26/11 thru 5/28/11 I did the manual rack conversion with the supra shaft and did the shocks/struts, springs, camber plates, front/rear strut bars and A/C delete.

This how it sits as of 7/1/11

Nice work :)

I'm particularly impressed that you handled the wiring yourself (without a GTS donor harness?)

Any diagrams / tips on doing this? If I ever swap a 4AG into my SR5 I'll probably do it myself as well.

The engine bay looks great!

Thanks! By far just doin a GTS wiring swap is easier. The wiring is what took the most time on the whole swap. I started off with an AE92 and then I made the wiring all stand alone for the engine, with fuses in line on wires and relays have whips out of the engine harness. Then I simplified the sr5 under dash harness and removed all plugs I wont use. I think I ended up with 8 wires that were needed to connect my SR5 under dash to my engine harness. Also modified the headlight harness to get my alt wires hidden and removed the OEM fuse box from under the hood. Ran 1 wire from circuit opening relay to fuel pump. Got all my diagrams from http://opc.mr2oc.com/#corolla. Best tip I could give is take your time and be 200% sure on things. I had even found mistakes in the OEM diagrams.

Thanks I think it will stay like this for a bit as I will be putting money into my coupe to get out on the drift track this year. I will put up a thread of that once I really start working on it. It's an 87 SR5 coupe that is GTS swapped. here is a teaser pic lol
