this is one of my favorite cars, and this will be a long WIP for me.

whats done so far:

-scratchbuilt engine bay area
-cut open trunk and scratchbuilt trunk with spare tire
-removed the molded in seats, floor pan and modofied center console to be correct to 1:1
-will use some recaro Njoy seats
-removed the whole exhaust sytem.
-lowered
-new front brakes

plans:
-new exhaust
-2TG engine detail
-rework the rear leaf springs
-front TOSCO chin spoiler
-rear TOSCO trunk spoiler

the kit:



first i was cleaning my library of mags and found this underneath

an old issue of OPTION magazine. now this sets me up for a very JDM mood. (now to find my other option mags)
prepares the seat(recaro Njoy) and new interior door panels

door panels need cleaning up though
the new interior tub

i cant find any styrene here locally, so i use prepaid cards for cellphones
with the seats:

exterior.
stance with hood and grille

without grille

without hood

rs wats and disc brake upgrade

rear trunk with spare tire

engine bay:

exterior shot(nissan silvia s110?s12? in background)

Re: toyota corolla TE27 levin WIP

Did those seats come with the kit?
All the wheels actually look pretty good on the car except the wire style ones. I especially like the second set.
Good job with the engine bay and trunk, lots of details, perhaps you are going to make the grill/headlights removable once the model is complete?

Re: toyota corolla TE27 levin WIP

@kaho: nope the seats came from 2 kits sets of fujimi ae86. it only has minimal interior detail, and stock seats are molded in(and a pain to remove without a dremel) and im planning to make the grille/headlght assembly removable to see the detils.

and the second set of rims(2 pc panasports) is actually the set that im going to use.

Re: toyota corolla TE27 levin WIP

Looks awesome! I love the Panasports on it, though the last ones in your role call look awesome as well. I love the work under the hood and in the trunk - beautiful!
