Black corolla ascent 06


Sergio

Recommended Posts

Leading on from my 'new member's intro' thought I'd get some photos going and mods that are coming up...

A did a quick shot of the car today, bad quality and dirty so no good. I am not touching anything until the end of the exams. Its hard to look at it in that state n can not wait to shmick her up!

Here's a write up of my short term plans contributing to her, sort of in rough order:

- Interior detail

- Engine bay detail

- Exterior detail - clay, polish, wax.

- Genuine corolla matts

- Taylor made corolla seat covers

- Tinted windows (20-25%) will see about the strength/darkness.

- Illuminating red door sills

- Wheelskins leather two tone (charcoal/black) steering wheel cover

- DVD/GPS double din unit

- Body work - small dent on door, respray some plastics etc

- King spring lows

- WHEELS no idea which ones, was tempted for 18x7.5 but will stick to 17x7. Black on black is sex but I was looking at contrast. Please have a look at the link below and any suggestion comment is appreciated: http://au.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/inde...25&start=25

- Short black antenna

- By that time thorough Toyota Service would be due (as it will be the first service after I bought it I'll take it to Toyota and get them to do an inspection and the service, It'll be a 50000km service)

That will prob do for now lol

Any opinions suggestions more then welcome.

Thanks,

Serge

Got rid of the old crappy photos. Since it was a nice day today I got my bro to wash the car for me so I took better photos of it...

Proud of my baybee :)

Wow, haven't been here for a long time :\ this place has improved a fair bit, loving it.. good work :)

Back in June was when i purchased the car, been away for a few months so poor effort of the dedication to this forum I must say.

I have completed most of the TO DO list for the rolla, still not finished though.. had a little something diff to invest in during summer :) but here I am again.

I have detailed the car since I have purchased it but it is due for another massive one (next week or so) lol

I have put in the corolla matts, genuine matts cant be beaten I recon and addition to that some taylor made seat covers 8)

The windows are 15% tinted even though I asked for 20% but for $150 who can complain.

The door sills work a treat.. biggest eye catcher ;)

The leather two tone steering wheel cover looks awesome, adds luxury look and comfort while driving (steering wheel little thicker)

I have purchase some King spring lows a while back but waiting on the wheels in a couple months and then i'll throw them on.

What i haven't got yet besides the wheels is the stereo system. Got a quote from my old fellows from Sound Master.. splits and two way rear running of head unit, 12" sub running off 2 channel amp bridged.. Nothing as big as what i used to run in previous cars but just to improve sound quality and add a bit of bass in ya face lol. All the shiz is Kenwood as it is cheaper but does a beautiful job at sounding decant. $500 with cables.

I purchased one of the DVD/GPS double din head units a little while back, from china that are a straight plug in with a TOYOTA logo. They are pretty good for the price so I'll be keeping it and hoping the sound quality is good.

Once the system is in (next weekend) and i get the car into shape I'll put up a couple photos. But it will all look pretty standard until the wheels go on. Wheels make 110% more diff to the car.

Good to be back :)

Serge.
