    Default Restoring Toyota Corolla 1999

    I am thinking about completely restoring my car Toyota Corolla 1999 model. Few questions and concerns that I have in my mind' 1. Which Engine for a swap. Not going to be a daily runner but economy does matter. 2. Paint on the entire body. 3. Currently it is too lowered. Don't no why but I can assure totally stock. 4. Complete interior change. New dashboard and new seats. Where can I get them from? Thanks.

    if u have added pictures to this thread u would have gotten a much better response
    something like a 5afe/7afe would be fine
    dash and seats can be found in junk yards...like bilal ganj
    get the springs checked from junk yard and ask them to bring the car back to stock height
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    1999 I think you are talking about ae 101/100 it a bit low in height in stock setting so instead of playing with suspension get a pair of big dia rim/tyre dashboard/seat you can find in junk yard like bilal ganj and about engine 5afe/4afe are fine 7afe will not be economical
