    Default White TE71 GT Hardtop - 2TG

    Being cold and rainy outside and unable to do what I want today I thought I'd share one of my little toys with you folks. Long termers here at DC in the know will remember this from back in '07 when Jay (Buddyparts) brought it in to Aus, it was owned by himself then Andy, Ross (all in SA) and now it's in my hands down here in Melbourne. There was a bit of stuff to get it ready for club rego here in Vic but a lot of the work is a credit to the efforts Ross put in when it was in his ownership also.

    Looked like this when I bought it, big thanks to my brother Pete for road trippin' over to Adelaide with me in the Hilux with the tandem to bring her home.


    Original doors came with the car, I put them back on, removed the busted lock barrel and had a T-18 one re-keyed to suit the rest of the car locks. I've re-fitted a lot of the removed parts and added some AE71 (rear centre) seat belts to each side in the rear. Still haven't got around to re-fitting the air con yet but that will probably happen around the same time as fitting the EFI stuff, I'm converting it back to original(ish) slowly as time permits. I've bought all the EFI gear from trademe NZ so most of that will be used on most likely a 3T/2TG hybrid running a haltech. I plan to make it look like an original TE71 GT engine bay when the hood is popped but have a little bit more life than the stock 2TG. The original bonnet was rusted pretty bad also so I've had a T18 S2 bonnet and scuttle re-painted / matched to suit the car. Also started making some wheels for it a while ago so I'll get them on it soon once finished, currently running my spare set of MA's. The Volks are on ebay, as much as I'd love to keep them I've found a recent hobby in searching yahoo auctions Japan for wheels, on the water currently I have a set of SSR MKII's, pair of Equip 02's and an Equip 03 then another pair of Equip 03's to also hit the water soon I recommend people don't make that a hobby. If you do, Dan's your man (JDM wheels Australia). Shockworks coilovers will make their way into this eventually too, I'm running them in my Pano and they're the business. Not going to bother with lows of any kind until then. I'm too old for choppies so it will be done correct from the start, I have a wierd kind of respect for this car that's never existed in me with previous Corolla's, haha. Got original mirrors to go on too when I make some mounting bases.

    Fairly recent photo's




    Came with a dead T-18 seat on the drivers side when I bought it, long story short, with the help of Craig at Just JDM Imports (brought in a passenger seat from Japan) and my Dad's trim work it is now looking like this...


    It's been on club rego since back in November, big thanks to Adam for pushing through the club permit inspection just in time for Classic Japan (big TCCA organised event) and I have already used about 60 days of the 90 day club permit

    Well that's all for now.

    I spoke to Troy at Classic Japan in November, by the sounds of it that car is in Sydney getting a 4AGE installed. He sold it as a rolling shell I've got a blue slanty AE70 tucked away too

    Yeah was sold on eBay for 1200. Still had the LSD rear end and gt4 front caliper setup. I'm sure previous owners would be happy with your work Paul
