Quick question: Will mine and Brigette’s seat at your reception this weekend be inside your Celica? Because that would be neat if everyone had tables set up but your Celica was sitting where a table belongs and Brigette and myself could sit in it. Just throwing that out there. #6p3gang


possibly... but no eating in the celi....!

not much of an update on the celi. but more of an update on my life. (although the celi did get cleaned up nice)
but this past weekend I got married to the love of my life, no, not the green one or the red/orange one. laugh.gif
also had some celica buddies join us as well. Thanks again Daniel & Brigette!

I really wished I had gotten a photo of the cars parked on my yard. It really did look like a toyota meet.

So if you knock her up, does that mean you just bought a 3D printer?

my next mod if i ever catch up on my list of todo's is to remove the amber from my tail lights.
uploading some pics to preserve the info for later.

still gotta paint my spoiler and riser blocks at some point as well as my passenger side door. or a full body respray at that point.

That would look really clean. As far as amber splotches in lights go, I think these taillights look really good compared to many others out there, so I've always been torn about doing this mod.

Do you have LEDs in there? Now that would look really good.

I think clear with a good LED or some of those bulbs with the special coating to look clear but give off amber would look nice.

I'm a bit torn myself but we'll see once i do get the time to do it.
and no, I don't have LEDs in there but if I do this, then maybe I'll switch them out to LEDs.

Agreed, manual it! It looks real good man. Wish my exterior was that clean! But daily driving the car in MN w/ crap ton of construction doesn't help. We do gotta get some photos together one day.

I do want to ask though about your roof wing. Did you have to reinforce the middle so it doesn't slouch? Or is the wing itself a strong plastic?

Not if you just buy a domestic like I did. Seriously though unless you're going to swap and/or drop some decent money it's really the only way. You could always 4th gen 3S-GTE swap the Celica. My Celica ST wasn't too terrible with the 5-speed though, it was bearable at least.
