I've seen a Sera that had an ordinary gas strut zip tied to the main strut as a helper strut.

And why not to answer, sometimes it is useful to communicate to other continents!)))



I didnt mean that. Its great to hear from you and see your Sera. We are all glad to have many Sera owners from around the world. I was laughing at what the GOOGLE translator had done.

is it my imagination or do I see a second strut holding up the door? has this guy gone and done a self opening door mod?



I have seen this double strut thing before........not sure who's Sera. I think its just to add lift/use aftermarket parts so Toyota stuts arnt needed..................

Yes, it's popular 'budget' repair of door strut in Russia.
The strength of an original gas spring after 10-15 years falls down from 120-130 kg to 100 kg, but not to zero.
This additional strut from fifth door with about 20-30 kg strength is very cheap repair method.
The strut like that costs about 10-15$ and it's not bad in comparison with 150$ of new original gas spring.

4wd на Сере??? Это как О_о???


Одна уже ездит, на автомате.
Сборная солянка из трёх автомобилей, хотя хватило бы одного старлета, но на разборках донора не было.

У меня чуть посерьёзнее задумка, хочу оставить дисковые тормоза сзади и по другому проблему с баком решить.
Пока времени на это нет, увы.

Sorry my friends, downloading of all foto is too tediously.

I post only most interesting.

If you want for details you can see whole fotogallery of my Sera at http://my.mail.ru/ma...um_id=turbosera

Or use google website translator with livejournal of my Sera at http://www.drive2.ru...a/zizo/journal/

 

It's second 4WD Sera in Novosibirsk and possible in Russia.

First made by my friend two years ago, it has stock 5E-FHE with AT (from Raum) and 4WD parts from Tercel.

The main problem with 4WD Sera is fuel tank. At first variant we take tank from Corolla, because it is more suitable than Tercel's or Starlet's (we check both).

As result - rear seats are not usable because metal under the seat was slightly pushed up.

 

I try make other variant - install sport fuel cell into the trunk. It grandiosely stole free space of trunk but save rear seats usable.

But now I have other problem - I have no space for stepney :unsure:

I hope that we will solve this problem soon.

 

If you see a very thin or thick metal in the photo - it's the first one (model)

Finally all made very robust.
