Living in Australia, I have recently found out that some of the ZZE range Corollas were made in South Africa. Being nieve, I had assumed that all of that generation corolla was built in Japan. Does anyone know the differences between those manufactured in South Africa vs those in Japan. Specifically, i have an '06 model and want to know if parts between the two builds are the same. I have heard rumours that door handles maybe be slightly different but not sure of anything else. I haven't been able to find much on the internet either so any experience would be most appreciated.
Hi guys, My beloved 1996 Vienta (XV10 style/w 3VZ-FE) has finally succumbed to the minor head gasket issue it had by suddenly becoming a big head gasket issue - now.. this thread isn't about that, this thread is about a project to re-use the stereo out of it as a standalone audio player for parties/get-togethers/Drive-thru movies etc.. Whatever I decide to use it for. I did a LOT of online crawling/searching and just couldn't find a model of Fujitsu Ten similar to mine and BOY does it sound incredibly good for the vintage (20 years)! This is coming from a guy whos other vehicle (FG Falcon) has a custom 550W RMS sound system. I'm not entirely sure what kind of RMS wattage it was originally designed for, but it sounds like it might be 150-200W RMS-ish, it does have a six stacker CD player in the boot with cassette-style loading similar to an LS400 (if not the same). I've already got a wiring diagram for the connectors (Bar CD player which doesn't read the CD's so it's being omitted sadly, might add one to it later) - the cassette player is also a bit strange and has trouble playing tapes, it likes to autoflip constantly. Thankfully, I have a Bluetooth Radio transmitter for my music and there are lots of compatible antennas for sale at Autobarn. The thing will have two options for power, 12V AGM battery or AC/DC inverter for those "extended" listening sessions, I'm planning on jumping into JB HiFi or Autobarn/Supercheap to get some speakers from the bargain bin just for now. The wiring loom is available on Ebay and I have the diagrams for other Toyota models but the plugs it has are the same. The battery for now will be my 12V 21ah spare which is part of my solar project, it should power this thing for at least one hour at an assumed 220W draw at peak volume (I think), generally it will probably be between 1/5-2/5 of max volume. Will keep you all posted. Edit: Forgot to mention, I kinda want to mount it all into a storage bin/container of some sort, you can pick them up really cheap and they seem easy to insulate. I was thinking of wood but I just don't have the tools for it. Pics:
