I just bought this 05 Corolla . Hoping to share my transformation with you guys .
Join CorollaForum.com Today!
I added a grill to my vehicle , plus some hella horns I didn't like the color of the horns so I painted them black so you couldn't see them . Hope you like
Changed out my stereo
Keep it up!!
One of my best mods for Corolla was a full set of WEATHER GUARD floor mats
Good thing I live in Florida we don't need those type of floor mats - lol
Cleaned the head lights and added inside LED lights
I love this gen Corolla's head lights.... you get them polish up, they look sexy!
I used this kit
Plus I finally put on some eyelids today
Added some minor touches , Upgraded my turn signal bulbs , LED trunk bulbs , Dash Mat and seat covers - Not major changes but definitely moving forward on my modifications
what type of radio did you use, obviously a pioneer.\
Do you have a link to the radio system?
I have 08 corolla le, im just using a bluetooth adapter?
I got a clarion off amazon double din, Bluetooth, aux, cd, can also do Sirius sat radio. For around $100 US
Clarion CX505 2-Din HD Radio/Bluetooth/CD/USB/MP3/WMA Receiver https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00S7G1TAO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_EyTrBbBPQ2XSQ
lol... updating the stock stereo deck in this gen Corolla is a great investment! I waited too long to do this mod.. worth every cents.
shawn86.. keep an eye on your voltage and battery power make sure all these goodies don't become a parasitic drain
Added some more parts , G Plus Purple Hoses , VMS Radiator Purple Cap , Sick Speed Wrist Bands lol , Magnetic Purple Oil Pan Bolt , TRD Neo Chrome Oil Filler Cap .
I'm still undecided if I'm keeping that Radiator Fan Cover Purple or Stock White that is in the last picture .
That is why you purchase a FARAD and connect your amp to it , any lighting and it will not drain your battery .
Yeah for sure I used a wiring harness and I have a capacitor for my amp also. I have blown up too many batteries because of wiring and electrical issues.
I don't know where I bought it but this is the model I have
Pioneer FH-X720BT CD/MP3/WMA Player With MIXTRAX & Built-in Bluetooth W/ REMOTE
I love your colors! hey.. if you happen to find a aftermarket battery tie.. that actually fits our corolla let me know.
Thanks Bro !!!
I have a extra one if you are talking about the original battery tie down the one that I colored purple on top of the battery ??
I got me a Camry cargo net made it work for my trunk
oh! no... ex: the FT86 has a lot of aftermarket battery tie down. I no better not to get a universal aftermarket batter tie (they NEVER fit).
and you should of gotten the "As Seen On Tv" Grab Bag instead of the cargo net
Cargo Net I found in the junk yard I only use the first picture as a reference to who ever wants to do the same thing the photo has the part number .
that a good score.. oh lord.. they cost a lot @ the dealership
thank you for the radio suggestions.. Love them,
thats my next project.
I did some rebadging today , Then changed my rear tail lights to Altis LED Version which is cheaper then the other one .
I have those tail lights too what your next mod?
Well while I had to replace a stud and brakes I decided to just throw some slotted rotors , I have used these in all my past Corollas , Camry , My Rav4 currently has all 4 slotted rotors .
My only recommendation on slotted rotors is that you use Ceramic Pads or Carbon Fiber . I have never had a problem with them , braking feels the same pads seem to last longer but the best part since this Corolla like my other ones with no ABS they do not heat up when you use them a lot so the stop is always good .
The only thing I have noticed is with ceramic pads when they are super cold they don’t work as well until they warm up.
I live in Florida so cold is not a option for me - lol - But what I love about Ceramic is No or Little Dust on Rims
True that! I wish I would have switched sooner
where u get the headlights from?
Headlights came with the car they are the OEM
I bought a pair off amazon. eBay has some also.
Upgraded my rear speakers , They sound good
U need to come over! And do my brakes too!!
then later... strip my entire exhaust set off . I want to do something different
No problem if you live in Florida - lol
Well I have added a Vibrant 1126 Muffler
Does that muffler change the sound?
darn it.. Rinconrolla, you should of waited on your muffler upgrade.. I don't like the tail pipe
This is what is sounds like
The tail pipe down is to keep the pipe from scrapping on driveways ,
I know a lot of people hate the lights under the cars , They think RICE or fast and furious but believe it or not Tokyo is famous for expensive cars lit up like neon board , But me personally or I know in Florida lights under the vehicles can be classy ,
These lights are remote they change colors and they blink to music if I decide to change the mood , But for now Purple is my main theme at night - Hope you like - Of course before installing these always paint under your car white so that the color can bounce from the ground to the white and back down again ,
Time to lower her down , I bought these Godspeed ones they feel good , Right now she is riding on hard later I will try the soft then decide which one I will stick with , I'm looking to do 2inch all the way around , I still got some tweaking to do and some fenders to roll
Where did you purchase the Altis tail lights? Link?
I’m also bringing new life to my corolla so we are in very similar places. Like others have asked, what’s the next mod?
Dope work I have that same grille on my corolla Also installed projectors on the lights which are pretty cool currently waiting for my android head unit from ali express so I can change out my stereo also.
I've added a picture, pls don't mind the poor picture quality.
