    So i bought a new car and thought i'd start a build thread so here it goes


    i used to drive this little panda 1.6l of fury



    Was a fun car but started getting bored of it and didnt really want to spend anymore money on it so i started looking at other cars had a list of what i wanted
    180sx
    s13
    bmw 318
    golf vr6
    ae86
    mx5


    Had my mind set on the mx5 so i kept saving and saving but one day my mate told me how one of his family friends had a ke70 for sale i was sorta interested as my first car i drove was dads 4agte ke70. So i went home thought about it and he emailed me a few photos of the car:







    After seeing these pics i had to have it, it was just so clean was perfect so i gathered all my money up and drove up 2 weeks later to test drive,check it out etc etc.
    Drove it around and ended up buying it on the spot was in such a good mood so i drove it home (slowest drive ever)



    Specs:
    1.3l 4k
    4 speed manual
    rwd
    boat suspension
    305*** kms


    First thing i had to get rid of was the steering wheel so i went to jdmyard and bought myself this



    Then i had to get a boss kit



    Then i got bored so i chopped up the rear shade thingy and made a little roof spoiler



    Put some stickers on



    OK so my plans are
    put a silvertop 20v in it
    lower it
    nice wheels
    tint
    ducktail
    quad light front end
    chin spoiler
    tacho dash (instead of clock dash)
    bucket seats

    This also, but really at the end of the day it's just another corolla, yeah clean ones are getting hard to find now but there was never really a big market for them was there? Actually now people seem to be selling them for more, hey even me I suppose, haha.

    Nice car!!! So clean. Even though 4k is slow with good suspension they are still fun to drive and reliable compared to a vr6 you were considering haha, a mate has one and its nothing but trouble !!

    thanks everyone for the kind words, ill probs loose the stickers once i put the engine in but at the moment im just trying to get rid of the grandma look lol

    Update:

    Update time:
    So i picked some wheels up last night the dimensions are 15x10 -26 ahaha crazy wide






    so the idea is to either roll and flare guards or run bolt on flares not to sure at the moment
    I also need to get different wheel nuts as i don't have any that fit on the car.

    hmmmm i have a feeling they might scrub The only way you will get those inside a guard will be with bolt ons.
