Post by Drewpy36 » Fri May 12, 2017 4:41 pm

Hey everyone! I just got myself a 1987 toyota sprinter carib (jdm tercel from what i understand and can see). I was just wondering if anyone knows how many/if ay/ if all parts are the same between my car and the tercel models of the same year. Hope someone can help me with this! thanks

By 1987 it might be the next generation. Post pictures and we will be able to tell you.

All your parts should be the same as USA except instrument cluster (kmph) bumpers and lights might be different to USA 1987. did you have to have some aftermarket side marker lights put on? also small things like antenna placement. That car looked really nice. make sure you give it a good rinse off after any salty roads though! send some photos through sometime please!

Posting pictures is easy;

from the "post reply" below, you get an input window to type a message, below that window will be tabs to post pics. You place the cursor where you want it to show up, and a picture code appears on your screen with a pop up window that asks you to select a file, you have to burrow down to where your pics are stored and click on it.

It will not show until you either "post reply" or hit "preview".

It can be done from a smart phone, or a hard drive on your computer.
