My Carina TA60
Hello Guyz,

Saw that some people show their Carina here, just decided to do the same with mine, bought last week Smile

The car was sold in 83 and was imported to Taiwan by a diplomate.
It as many options (Power window & AC) and everything work Smile

No specific plans for now just make the engine bay a bit cleaner, lower it and change the wheels for a set of XR-4.

Welcome and that's a very nice Carina! Wave
It is a XE meaning it is not a Japanese market car. Any idea where the car originated from initially?

I see you get the adjustable steering column, dimmable gauge cluster as well!
Never seen the white stripe between the two headlights but they look nice.
What are the 'handles' on the B pillar in one of the photos on FB for?

Thank you very much guys for you comments Smile

The car was imported from South Africa, sorry I forgot to mention about that Smile

I need to look closer to those handles as I really don't know their function right now ... Smile



Wheels arrived Smile

I did a chassis check today and I'd like to change all the bushings down there any idea where to order them and witch model I'll need? I saw a set for the AE86 Bushings on T3 website. Also need to change the Tie Rods End.

For the suspension :
The front AE86 Coilovers will be welded on the original spindle.
For the rear everything looks the same.
For the camber plate, my camber plates have the good PCD but adjustment is not correct, it seems that I can get caster and camber adjustable if I install them a certain way.
I might CNC new plate to be sure the setting will be correct.

I think I saw that lever on another Carina before and remember that it is some sort of lever that tensions the sea tbelt when you close the door.

About the bushings: I ordered a set from T3 for the AE86 to sort out which ones do fit on the Carina but that has stalled since I got an AA63 where I need to transplant stuff from first.
Where did you get those camberplates from?

Hello Banpei, I guess I'll have to test the bushings first as I'll install the suspension in two weeks or so Smile

Those camber plates are for MX73, I used to have a Cressida before and I was pretty sure that the camber plates was the same Smile

Many parts are shared in the big Toyota parts bin. My camberplates are USDM Corolla TE72 plates. Wink
