    Default Sassygirl's 03 Corolla

    Since I've been spending all this money and effort of the Camaro i figured I'd do a little for the lady as well.

    This is our 03 Corolla. She's owned it for about 4-5 years. I think it has 160k of the odo.







    Dspite my effort to repair them, the headlights lenses are trash so to help her see better at night I got a set of these.



    I'll be painting the grill black also.

    Yeah I.don't know what it is about those motors. They're weak as he'll, burn more oil than gas but run forever...beats me

    and yes the hood is in terrible shape. I'll have to spray is back white probably at some point.









    And the best about this swap is the side profile is a lot better

    The Sassy mobile has some trouble recently. damn ticking near the top of the motor. My first thought was the valve train however to my luck these 1.8L motor have a common failure in the Hydraulic Timing chain tensioner. The chain was hitting the timing cover. 40 dollars and easy fix... could have been alot worse

    you can see the droopy chain
