    Default My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM)

    Hey guys,


    This is my 1993 Toyota Corolla SE Limited. It's a Japanese import and has all of the features you would expect out of Japan, except it's now a little different from a bog standard grocery getter


    It was completely standard when I bought it, but I've done a number of mods to it over the last 5-years of ownership so far, including a 4A-GE 20v Blacktop swap at the end of 2012. I've almost reached my goal of finding every single optional extra that was available from new, including some of the rarest items, such as the AirFantasy fragrance control system.


    This first post will remain updated with all of the current modifications and photos. To view updates in chronological order please scroll through the various posts below this one.

    regular viewer of your thread no words to admire your photography.

    Thank you for the kind words. I'm hoping to change the wheels sometime in the future, just have to decide on which ones

    Very true. It has proven to be extremely useful over the last few days, so I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of it in the future

    Masha ALLAH. Very nicely kept car indeed. The best thing about the car are the luxury updates you made, simply mind blowing. Your love and dedication for your car is really evident and commendable !

    Just a suggestion, May be I am wrong but what about getting some wicked leather seat covers ? also something about the bumpers, i am not a corolla lover so dont know whether the bumper mounted indicator lights do something ... or mean something...

    Lastly, photography is too good, which camera are u using ?
    Honda, Sony, AMD, Android, Grassroots, Hiwatt, Turtle, Dream Theater !

    Thank you very much! That's a massive compliment. I appreciate you taking the time to view the photos of my car and give me some honest feedback.

    I'm not really a fan of leather to be honest. The seats I'm using are from the very rare AE101 Corolla GT sedan, so I enjoy having them on full display . The turn signal bumpers are just indicators, and flash at the same time as the turn signals on either side of the headlights.

    I use a Canon EOS 450D DSLR. All photos are shot in RAW and subtly converted to HDR. Photoshop is not used during the process

    I fitted some personalised plates today. Would love to know what people's interpretation of the word "whipped" means, so feel free to post your comments below

    Sorry mate, haven't had a chance to check it. Will take a look now


    I attended a Toyota meet last night and a friend of mine snapped some shots of my car:

    My 93' Corolla From New Zealand (AE100 JDM) - whipped2


    Also, finally got my door cards reupholstered with the Corolla GT fabric (fabric transferred from one set of door cards to the other). I've had the GT seats installed for about 18-months, but never got around to getting the door card fabric transferred across because every upholsterer I went to wanted to charge between $500-700 (couldn't just swap the GT door cards straight over because the plastic was grey, whereas the interior plastic in my SE Limited is plum).

    A lot of places didn't even want to attempt the job, mainly because the door card was all one piece, so they'd have to tuck it in perfectly whilst also lining up the holes for the electric window switch etc. Ended up finding an Indian guy who has been in the business for 50-years that was willing to do it for $180. Dropped it off yesterday before lunch and it was ready at 11am this morning

    Here's the result:

    Thanks!


    This arrived from Japan this morning - An OEM cabin filter. It was a very rare optional extra, and I didn't even know it existed until about 6-months ago. I managed to find the rare cabin filter door to hold it in, so have been waiting for this to arrive. I installed it about half an hour ago, so here's some pics of the filter, door and finished product:

    A couple of shots that I took about an hour ago, just before the rain set in:
