My Name is Shayne.

I got my 97 Celica GT about 5 years ago with 68k original miles.
This was the first picture taken of it, a couple weeks after I got my license.


The only issues she's had (over time) was a blown clutch, blown heater core, and now a leaking PS boot. The clutch went out after only having the car for a year, I think it was due to previous owner, as when she traded it in she told my dad she was 'tired of shifting'.

Fast forward to about a month before joining here and i installed my first 'performance mod,' an eBay short air intake for $25.


Secondly I painted my stock calipers
Before:

After:


Then came the rims.. I originally wanted 18's but settled with 17's, but I'm satisfied biggrin.gif



Not too long after came the JDM's thumbsup.gif my favorite addition. Thanks to 6gc member ST205WRC.

Installed:


Then I decided on changing up the interior. But wanting to keep the option of going back to stock, i kept the original pieces and painted parts i pulled of a junkyard Celica. And knowing prep work is most important I sanded, primed, sanded, light coat, final coat, and clear coated. biggrin.gif


(Looks 10x better in real life..)


And about 2-3 weeks ago I got some new tint, the original tint was the cheap purple kind and filled with bubbles..
..last week i got my 6gc stickers (thanks to LewFX) thumbsup.gif

And a couple days ago I added the eBay Xentec 10000k HIDs, I think they may be too blue..



..Finally this is how she sits today


Future plans include coilovers (megans ftw), strut bars, header and cat back exhaust, new sound system, and fully renewed interior with Vincent_doggy leather seats.

Exterior wise.. possibly a de-skirt plus mud flaps OR addition of a c-one style bumper and rear spats (unsure though)

A swap was in the plan but seeing as shes my DD and i don't have any other means of transportation it wouldn't be wise to start that project anytime soon..
