Hi Everyone, Its good to be here and information shared here forced me to register and start my own thread. I'm Hashim from Lahore, Pakistan.

Recently I bought a Celica ST202, Its a very rare car in my country and are hardly 3 or 4 but no issues because we had every other toyota here and junkyards are full of rare JDM toyota parts. I get such project once in a year and restore then sell it when I'm bored. Previously I had Galant VR4 6a13tt, Honda Integra DA5, Civic EK3 Hatch and list goes on and on. We can only import cars less than 3 years old here so whatever we got in good old days is what we have now. This car however was imported late through a scheme called amnesty where we can register any car of any year by paying some amount.


Car Details:
Chassis: ST202 - BLPZF which makes it a SS3 but I believe its earlier SS3 which had no Beams
Engine: 3SGE 3rd Gen
Transmission: Automatic with Manu, PWR and Overdrive
Color: Black
Wheels: Stock 15inch JDM wheels


Plan:
Restore the car to its original specs with some interesting add-ons.


Work to do/Plans:
Its a long list and car requires major restoration and detailing. Thankfully, interior is all mint. Exterior requires a shower good news is its still original and never been painted before.

1. Clean Throttle body - Done
2. Air-Intake pipe has a crack, need to find replacement Repaired
3. Change plugs - Done
4. Exhaust downpipe had holes - Repaired!
5. Radiator flush with new coolant - Done
6. Engine Oil flush and new oil, Liqui Moly 10-40 as I'm diehard fan of Liqui Moly Oils. - Done
7. Timing belt replace - Done with new bearings and adjuster
8. All bushes of front suspension needs replacement - Done
9. Coilovers
10. Steering pump is leaking - Done, replaced
11. Axle boot is broken - Done
12. Injectors cleaning
13. Engine mount needs replacement but not a priority for now.
14. Brakes Service - Done for front only
15. New Paint with detailing
16. Speedometer Light of 'D' is not working with a TRD DIY wink.gif Done
17. CF dip of interior panels
18. ATF Change - Done used Dexron III
19. Services of Door looks - Done
20. Steering change to OEM 3 spoke like rav4 or SS3
21. Android unit, rear cam, new speakers
22. 17 Inch Rims, Done for now, 16s BBS
23. Dyno and ecu tune
24. Door locks service - Done
25. Strut bar paint with TRD steel emblem
26. Central locking fix

And about hundreds of DIYs

Rare items I found in the car.
1. HyperSports Mats
2. CD Changer in the Trunk
3. Momo Steering - broken, I will see if it can be repaired.

I believe the car is 1995 SS3 25th Anniversary edition from Japan. It has red needles in speedo as well.


Attaching a picture to make things less boring. Proper Pictures will be added soon.
