I’m teaching myself how to work on cars, so thats why i bought this project from my brother, to learn while doing. Its a corolla e11 1.3 ‘98 4efe. It had been sitting outside for a while so theres a lot of rust. But no holes or anything rotten through. It needed a lot of work but i got it passed MOT and got it insured. I got a second hand (partly rebuilt) gearbox and replaced the old one that had terrible bearing noises, replaced the clutch, the front left brake caliper with a used one (frozen and was not worth rebuilding), got a replacement for the bent grill, and planning to try and fix the dent in the hood and paint it together with that bumper part and cleaned up a lot of rust on the underside of the car. But still needs a lot of work and more low (already have the lowering springs :p). Planning to take more pictures and document what i did to the car better. Sorry if its not too long :p
