It is always nice to see owners mix and match parts from other cars. In this case this Levin is a mix and match of a kouki Levin (eyebrows on the headlights and bumper with wrap around indicator lights) and some grille I’ve seen before…
Now where did I see that before?? Is it from another E80 Corolla? Can’t remember the E80 ever had such a grille…
Perhaps another Toyota then? So how about this wagon then?? Continue reading
A few small updates on my Carina, I mounted a diamonds grille:
My carina: diamonds grille!
Earlier this week I finally mounted the diamonds-grille I bought from Rob (NZ) some months ago. I was only able to make pictures today. My Carina DX is suddenly upgraded to a ST! 😀
The white stripe on it is also a bit discolored, so I need to redo that soon, but nothing a rattlecan can’t fix. 😉
I also passed the 86k some days ago and today I managed to make this nice hachi-fanboy-mileage:
My carina: 86068 kilometers!
86068! I wanted to make a picture of my favorite combination 86063 (AE86 + AA63), but at that moment I was driving on the highway with 100km/h to my dad’s house, so that would have been a bit diffcult…
The package with the Carina grill and headlights has finally arrived from Japan!
nicely packaged by Aazuma Trading
Opened the package and found it was very well packaged:
rusted frame on the Carina AA63 head lights
I found that the frames of the headlights are a bit more rusted that I thought…
I think I’ll make a template and try either to fix it (with glassfiber or welded) or to have it copied.
The other Carina AA63 double headlights
But in general these double headlights don’t look too bad.
cracked Carina grill
I found the Carina grill being cracked on several places, but not beyond repair:
Full view of JDM AA63 front end
And last but not least, the full view of the JDM AA63 Carina front end!
Only thing missing now are the yellow indicators.
Got the grille as well. So everything is complete now! 🙂
Only lost my bid on the TA63 gauge cluster, but I won’t need upcoming year anyway so maybe better luck next time. 😉
In total it cost me 14770 yen so far, so that is with handling and without shipping to holland. Just have to see and wait how much more the shipping will be.
