first day i had her

the new wheels for her day 2


Before she went in


new wheels and tires on her day 3


cleaned her all up



her new short ram intake



New stereo i installed



Super whites



day i got her back from the tint shop, old tint was cracked and i couldn see out of the back window



essentially the finished product for now, all of th cost me just over 3400, only paid 2300 for the car, let me know what you all think, im new to the whole celica thing but all my cars have been JDM so im no stranger to that. just let me know what you think about mods, i was thinking headers exhaust and maybe coilovers and definately some gt4 risers

The pajama bottoms in the stereo shot made me laugh.

Joking aside, it looks MUCH better. I really like it. I was never a fan of that color, but you made it look good with the wheels and tint. Is that the original paint job? If so, it's held up VERY well over the years, I'm quite impressed! You'll soon find many other things to upgrade.. it's a bug, it'll get ya wink.gif.

A couple suggestions:

PLEASE clean out your engine bay. I know, I know, it's not ever high on the priority list, but it'll make that new air intake all the more special when everything around it is gleaming as well wink.gif.
It almost may be time to replace your rear (or for that matter both while you're at it) rotors. They look quite rusty.


But yea, great start bud. Stay here and read up some. You'll learn about a BOATLOAD of things you can do to improve your Celica.

Most of the dirt you can get off by just wiping it down with degreaser and a rag to be honest. If you know what you're doing, you can also pour a bucket of water over specific areas and not damage the car (avoiding electrical areas is always a good thing). I did this when my radiator had a leak and spewed coolant everywhere and it worked quote well.

But all that grime on the frame itself and on the valve cover, ect. can be easily cleaned by hand.

Wow, I've never made that many changes on the first day/week and I'm on my 3rd Gen6 Celica. Looks like they're all good changes too, nice.

I've never changed wheels, changed my lights months into it, stereo has always come last and never done tints.

Intake always on day 1 though biggrin.gif

That's odd, you have a '96 model, which has the facelift bumper (as it should,) but has the '94-95 spoiler. I guess whoever owned the car before you had the good taste to change it.

The car looks good, and so far you've been very tasteful. Keep up the good work!

Nice-looking 6GC man. Richee, I think that's because it's an Anniversary model...don't quote me on that.

Swissferdi: Nope, my '96 25th Anni has the three-prong bumper.

Greendemon, nice looking car - I had that color on my 94 but the paint was nowhere near the condition yours is in. I like all the changes you've made, the tint definitely made an impact to work well with that particular color.

Nope. The spoiler might have been an option, but I would advise the OP to go check for a VIN sticker on the inside of the hatch and see if it matches the VIN on the dash.

Besides, a 25th anniversary has the black emblems, and the 25th anniversary emblem and sticker on the fender.

I could've sworn I read that somewhere here...alright, learned something new. I thought prefacelift and facelift parts were never interchanged.

They weren't. You either have '94-95 parts or '96-99 parts, unless the owner/s of the car changed it somewhere along the lines. In this case, the spoiler was changed for the better.

Where in Kentucky are you from, 96stgreendemon?

Yes, that is indeed the right spoiler. The only thing you'll have to do is drill new holes in the spoiler, I believe.

cool, how hard is it to unbolt all that with the plastic trim around the hatch? and how much do the risers usually go for?

Removing the spoiler is pretty easy. Just take off the interior plastics, starting with the small cover in the center. I would take a screw driver and apply a small amount of force to the outside of the trim, and then the clips will just pop out of place. Since you have a 2-post, all you have to do is use a wrench to undo the 2 bolts on each side and that's it. The spoiler will probably need a bit of force to come loose. Good luck. thumbsup.gif

I've seen risers for around 150, there are usually a few sold by members each month.
