    rhymes with django

    I don't get on the computer very often but while I'm here I figured I would post a few pics. everyone love to look at pik-tur! first, I know that it needs more lower, badly. I removed literally about 500lbs of stereo equipment from the trunk and it shot up about 2 inches in the rear so look for more low real soon, then maybe throw my other rims back on.. these are 14' enkei apache.. 3's? Other rims still secret, shh.

    1973 te27, original 5 speed coupe. mechanically it is still very stock and I was going to keep it that way but this site is having a bad influence on my line of thinking..
    used to be orange, now it's red. Kinda wish it was still orange, c'est la vie. I've had this one for about 4 years, I can get into some other stuff and moar pic later,
    this is just to get a couple pics of it up in case anyone on dk cares about my old toyota

    Looks great! I see it has some sort of added leaf traction bar setup in the back, maybe that's to blame for the extra ride height?

    thank you gents! yes, has some "sprung" helper leafs, I'll take a pic later. stiffer but indeed tallller.

    I saw your slider and some vid of it in action on another forum cbergerud, awesome dude!

    I bought the mango around 2009, I'm the 3rd owner since new. really appreciate the comments guys.

    The trunk was a bit of a project to get to what it looks like now, I'll make a post about removing the box,
    peudo-restoring the paint and making the custom trunk mat.

    other wheels are borderline too big for a mango funky jdm awsum but may keep that under wraps for now!

    before someone asks how you get into the car, there is an actuator on the drivers door that pops the lock
    controlled by the alarm fob. handles? we don't need no steenking handles.

    I pulled my leafs out and dropped them off at a spring smith, got new center pins and my leafs de-arched 2.5 inches for $120, after about a day it was more like 2.75 inches. learned that my extra leafs now provide some range of adjustment of about an inch like some fake coilovers for leaf springs lol they are external to the leaf pack and they have their own U bolt and brace, you can adjust the tension to adjust rear height. I started messing around with the tension when my 15x8 -5rear hoshinos were tucked but wouldn't roll backwards down the driveway without heavy rubbing, in the pics the enkei apaches are at fully lowered and the hoshinos are at fully raised. I'll probably experiment with clearance somewhere inbetween the 2. My rear fenders are already flared but it would need additional work to roll super dumped like that, I'll update pics when I mess with it again. found out that my leafs were previously re-arched upwards which explained some of the additional height after removing the previous owners stereo box from the trunk and big gay molded spoiler from the deck lid. I've really just sat on this corolla for the last few years and am finally getting around to doing more with it, I had mainly just been concerned with getting it running and back to a more stock appearance. I also have an s12 hatch with a ka-de swap so I was kinda preoccupied (read: broke). hoping to get a weber on this soon but got nailed with some bullsh-it court fees today so might have to wait a couple months. some fairly self explanatory pics here. unfortunately didn't take pics of the hoshinos at scraper height but can do that later.
