My Levin projekt - Another Danish renovation
Decided to upload my projekt to this brilliant site, after watching alle the other projects coming along.

Bought my Levin October 3. 2006, and started to take it apart in the spring 2007.

Have to have it torn completely apart and have all rust fixed, and finally have it resprayed in Metallic Black with some gold flakes in it, not fully decided yet...


This will be a long post, will post the pictures in new replies, as I get further with the projekt.


As it looked when I drove it home in October:

And here with my old Celica AT160:

Took a picture together with my fathers Corolla TE71 Liftback, before taking the front apart:

Started to take the interior and the rear bumber out:

Luckily no rust in the interior:

My friend parked his VW Polo to take som pictures in the background...

Rear fender edges (Don't know the exact word for it) not looking good:

Got them fixed, along with some other things, the EP7 edges did not have everything with it, so got them from a Corolla AE80:

Disassembled and it looked very good, except the fenders:

Rear panel and fuel cap sandblasted:

As far as i know its the originally shape, all though it was resprayed in the early 90's, but it has no rust, had some made a few years ago, but all in all its the original shape Smile
He have also had it since 1983 Cool

Yeah it is in pretty good condition, have seen a lot worse cars. Think the fender arches not have been smothed out yet, have not made it my self, me and a welder is a no go mix! Smile

And this from my Local Toyota Dealer, new fenders:
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - My Levin projekt - Another ...renovation]


Had some problems getting my old crankshaft pulley off, it was sealed with loctite, and the inner pulley were broken, so we had to weld a piece off metal on it, before it would come off.
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - My Levin projekt - Another ...renovation]

Here the difference between the old and the new one, the new single drive pulley is 1 kg ligther then the old one.
