Hi guys, I figured there was no harm in making a build thread for my daily. I found this car 3 months ago, 6 hours south of my home town and just couldn't pass it up. The car was just too good to be true. No rust, low miles and in just beautiful condition, with all the comforts needed for a daily. The build will be very slow seeing this is just my daily, my main project is another vehicle. I have a goal of making the car appear as close to a true GT4 WRC as possible, I'm sure I will get some hate because of this but it won't bother me any. Seeing we never got them in the US I thought it would be a nice change, no plans on a 3sgt swap (yet). So let me bring you up too speed.


1994 Toyota Celica GT (US spec)
112k (when purchased)
5 speed
5fse


Day I got her home:



New app radio 4! And Tomei shift knob I took from my Evo tongue.gif



End works gauge bezel with full blue LED interior lighting.


Showing off the beautiful interior:


JDM tail lights, tint, and a sk2 antenna were a must, the other beast sleeps in the garage:


Scored a set of authentic 99 JDM WRC spoiler riser blocks, with the correct 3D grapihte badges:


Couldn't stand the factory wheels any more:


Suspension, I work for Airlift Performance so this is only temporary.. custom stuff will be coming soon:)


Just as I'm installing the suspension, this arrived:


Installed, looking nice. The wing is removed sent out for paint!


Much better:






Scored a C-one lip, still needs paint of course, along with a nice set of OEM side skirts!







More parts from endworks (This guy has been my favorite to deal with for these cars.. by far)! Again, hood spoiler needs paint!


Wing back from paint, with the emblems installed!




I'll be updating as often as possible. Hope to meet some new friends through here! Thanks guys.

Beautiful car with lots of tasteful mods! I enjoyed seeing it in person yesterday. What kind of wheels are those? And where/who did you get the clip from?

I like how silver always manages to bring out body lines you'd otherwise have never noticed, car looks great.

Haha thanks guys. Not much of an update. But i had some spare time today at work. So I decided to start on the trunk set up for the suspension. For those that are not familar with how our product works it is a fully threaded strut body, with either a double billow, or sleeve type air spring. This will have 30 way adjustable dampers front and rear, along with front camber plates.. The management will be our latest 3H system, with hight sensors. Each bag pressure will be individually adjustable, of course there is also presets. This is essentially the same set up I have on my Evo smile.gif Not only will this be lighter then the factory suspension, it is fully adjustable, and out performs coilovers!



Just a quick pic after work. Got the hood spoiler painted and installed, still waiting on the side skirts and front lip.


Figured I'd share a bit of the other project. Here is my weekend car. 2006 Mitsubishi Evo 9. Bought this car from the original owner 3 years ago 100% bone stock.. Now it is far from it, car made 563whp and 417wtrq on the 6262 turbo at 32 psi 93oct this year. The car is currently under the knife (even though it was parked running flawlessly) with the plans of 650whp larger turbo, injectors and different clutch, trans and final drive. Also I have a goal of getting the car at 2800lbs. Currently the car weights 3020lbs with a 1/2 tank of gas. So many more carbon fiber parts (Like a full roof)! It moves along nicely as it is, I'm very excited to see what it makes come spring!

Day i got her:


Now:






The puppy tongue.gif


As you can see i have a bit of an addiction with billet, carbon, and titanium... I'm really hoping to not bring this addiction to the Celica, it is just a daily after all!

Damn, your Evo is a straight up monster bowdown.gif Looking at that "after work" picture of the Celica, I think the air suspension and body pieces are the last things the car needs to look perfect. Do you do any shows or events (with either of your cars) ?

Thanks guys, yea I go to about every event I can with the Evo. Sonic is about a weekly thing seem to get a good number of races in there. The Celica hasn't been to much yet, however I have a feeling it's gonna be a tuff decision between which one to take after the winter.

Basically I want to keep the celica simple. My plans for the moment are the following
-JDM fenders
-projector headlamps
-Recaro confetti seats
-99 confetti rear seats
-steering wheel
-rear spats (not sure which to go with yet)
-install the skirts
-install the lip
-have the hood, bumper fenders repainted and blended into the a pillars, and doors
-install air suspension.
- enkei RC-T4 wheels (maybe)
-GT4 front and rear brakes.

I hope to have this all done over the course of the winter. But we shall see!

Holy sh!t what an awesome build, on both vehicles!

Would love to see more of the Evo, and can't wait to see more updates on the celica too. The body pieces should finish off the exterior quite nicely.

Sadly not much has been going on with the Celica. I have the air kit ran and wired, however I have not had time to install the sleeves, and double bellows themselves. I have put 2,000 miles on it in the past 2 months (Have been driving it a ton) so haven't got much time to work on it. The Evo has had all of my attention and money for the new forward facing turbo set up I am installing. However come Monday the front clip of the Celica is getting removed and freshly painted. This will include the hood, fenders, bumper cover, front lip, and side skirts! Pretty excited and at that point the body should be 100% flawless. No dents, scratches, chips ect! Here's a couple pictures to pass the time.
Decided to make the trunk set up a bit more compact:

Basic over look and fluid change before my 7 hour trip to Import Alliance
