I've been on here for a few months now, but finally getting around to this. Here is my 1996 Celica ST. I bought it from my friend, who was the original owner, in July with 98k. All it needed was a fix to the rear bumper and an AC compressor, which was the first thing I bought and installed. Still haven't gotten to that bumper, but looking. I don't have a pic of that, or very many pictures of when I first got it, but here is the one I have:



Next, I got a set of Scion TC rims with decent tires (~80% thread left) for $300:



Then, I got a Ralco RZ short throw (7gc) from ebay and installed. It took a while, but the thread on installing these was great and I got all my questions answered. I bought a knock off TRD knob off ebay, and installed that but I didn't like the feel...



...so I tried the weighted knob that came with the Ralco short throw and it really made for nice shift feel. I cut the ring off the boot and tied it down, gives a nice look:



Next, I installed a Clarion CD/Ipod player with bluetooth that I got from Crutchfield, came with a remote too. Easy install, really improved sound quality but I still need new speakers all around.




Then side skirts:



JDM Kouki tails:

In process:


installed:


Then there is the K&N 57i Series Performance Intake Kit made for the 7AFE:

(pic shows the TRD 3-point front strut bar I just installed, see below):


and a video for sound: (there is a rattle between 2500-2800 rpm that I can't find... I think its a heat shield)

...then came this weekend. This weekend I installed new KYB GR-2 struts all around, TRD lowering springs, a TRD 3-point front strut bar, a GT-Four rear strut bar, and a steering wheel from a '98:

Throwing on a 20" rim from my friends' shop, just for fun:



GT-Four rear strut bar:


TRD 3-point front strut bar:


Steering wheel (I bought the sub-harness adapter so the airbag works and there is no light):



...and the final (lowered) product... for now (oh, with clear side marker lights):



...still need to fix the bumper!
