BBS are on, wrapped in 205 55 16 Yokohama ecos. The ride is smooth and looks are somewhat acceptable. Next is coilovers with 18 inch wheels in future.


On Sunday, I opened the cluster to replace the fused bulbs of "D" and "O/D OFF". I always loved the TRD cluster so did something similar to the current one wink.gif

Complete undercarriage service was done to remove all oil leakage. The seal between head and block needs replacement as well as there is some leakage near PS pump. Nothing major though.

Most forums are dead nowadays. Facebook made sure to kill them by having the "groups" option.

Although, it should be noted, that 6gc is one of the more active Celica forums....

Anyway... The car looks good!

Good to know there are secret admirers here.
So nothing much for last weekend as today is my exam, will be doing some work on coming weekend
Things I have planned:
1. "Super Struct Suspension" decal, will get that made. I hope it gets as close to original.
2. There is annoying noise coming from driver door, goes when I rest my elbow. Probably a minor fix it would be but it will require some hours.
3. If there is time left, I will be making a card board diffuse for rear bumper. Once its finalized then it will be converted to aluminium or thick plastic.

Got hold of Celica Emblem from UK, there is guy named Abdul Teem on facebook. Getting that for 15 pounds.

Long term plans ahead:
1. Coilovers - only available coilovers available are of Corolla ae100, they would require bit of alteration but would fit perfect I believe.
2. 18 inch wheels

I'm on here daily as well. I usually don't post much because I'll just end up saying, "looks good" on every thing. hahaha.

Noise from the driver's door might be due to just old age and things rattling loose. Take off the door panel and add some padding or check all the plastic pieces to make sure they're still held on firm. I still gotta do this to mine.

Abdul is an awesome guy. He's very reasonably priced and has a lot of pieces that you usually can't find anywhere else.

Thanks guys.

This Weekend was all planning and bit of DIYs.

Restoration for steering has started. Its a momo 25th anniversary edition so I think it deserves a second life.

1. Center area is getting new wrapped leather, previously tapes were placed to hold it but that damaged the surface
2. Drilled two holes at the back of it so that it can be fitted with screws now, previously it had that cloth tape which is normally found on bag straps
3. Red stitch to add a color and to go with red needles of cluster
attaching a picture, the picture is with plain new cloth now, I have ordered dotted leather. Finally and proper pictures next week.



Got hold of FGK Legalis R(I had this on my Galant, bought it back from current owner), the current one that came with the car is Tanabe G medallion, its a great exhaust but looks hideous from back.





Last is a failed DIY lol. The decal of SSS is slighter bigger, will get that made again. It should be bit smaller. Also added a TOM'S sticker wink.gif



I know the pictures I'm posting are of real bad quality. I promise once its ready, I will be posting pictures like this wink.gif my ex ride.

FGK is in and I'm already missing Tanabe, the FGK is loud and gives a feel of Honda D/K/B series like it actually barks lol. I know I'll start hating it due to the noise..for now I will be keeping it and will switch back to tanabe after a month.

Been a long time I posted anything here. Steering DIY was complete, replaced the center with dotted leather and stitched the wheel with red string.



FGK Chambered looked as if it skipped a leg day at gym lol plus it sounded like civic D15 biggrin.gif, so back to Tanabe.

Bought a 7 Inch DVD pre of JVC, Front speakers of Rockford speakers and rears are Alpine components. No amplifier as of now. Fitting rear and front speakers were not easy, had to make custom wooden frames for perfect fitment.
