    Dee's project - evo 7

    Hey guys, my name is Andy and ive been on here for a while and i thought id give this a go.
    My first car was a corolla sportivo, had the car for 3 years. Did my best to keep it clean and tidy.
    Some pics:

    final product



    Then one day, after having a chatting with a P-plater about my car, he was inspired to buy a sportivo, he asked me if i knew where to my parts, and i told him i was thinking of parting out and what parts he would. He ending up listing everything, intake, exhaust, seats, struts, sways, wheels.
    So, as a joke i said, why dont you just buy my whole car, not realizing this guy was full serious about it. About a month later, the car was sold.

    current project:
    i was on the search for an evo, went to see a few, most of them very dirty and owners didnt look like they care about cars. i finally found one, the black bonnet threw me off a little, but it was extremely clean. after seeing the black bonnet in person, it looked tough. so my mind was set
    before buying the evo 7, a compression test was carried out by OTR motorsport, they said that the engine couldnt be anymore healthier

    some pics:






    changed spark plugs





    timing belt, tensioner and seals





    Getting new bits installed


    Other random pics
