    Default Restoring indus corolla back to original

    As some of you might know i had a XE corolla 94 model.

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...er-ride-hash4u


    finally we decided to let it go and buy some other car
    but my uncle whom i bought this from took it back(original owner who bought it 0 meter) and decided to bring it back to life to its original specs

    before pictures

    Engine was driven around 235,000 km's and consuming oil
    so i got oversized rings in it / 0.25 ..... Besides that new butterfly made for the carburetor
