Thanks for the cabin info!

I would need to stay somewhere, because it's a 6 hour drive for me!

Yay! A stripping party! I usually don't get invited to those! wink.gif Anyway...

I'm excited the blue car is a coupe, that'll bode well for my vert collection.

I'll even bring my screw driver. biggrin.gif

Is there anything else I should bring?! Dollar bills, a sawzall, cookies?!

I'm excited for this! Operation Green Beans, here we go! smile.gif

wanted to add there will be a strip show going on as well....

No, I will not be taking off any clothes (unless you pay wink.gif ) but I/we/you will be stripping the blue coupe or what's left of it for any parts you guys wanna buy(on the cheap) before I junk it. panels, wire, plugs, sensors, bolts, nuts etc. all must go. lowest prices around. all sales are final. no refunds. laugh.gif

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Tail of the Dragon meet! I really enjoyed seeing y'all again & meeting new Celica friends as well! I thought we had an excellent turn out!

I loved seeing all the Celica's swaying around the curves together! It made my heart happy!

Thanks for posting videos and photos! I'm really enjoying them. smile.gif

Hey All!

It's one month until the Tail of the Dragon meet and I've just put together all the details for the trip.

I believe there are going to be around 8-10 cars according to the Facebook event, but with the non Facebook people, we may have higher numbers then that.

I'm really excited for this trip and I look forward to hanging out with everyone. Also, if you're driving down from Chicago on Friday and want to meet up with me in Indianapolis, I'm happy to caravan down to the Dragon together.

Let's meet on 74 on the SE side of Indy, the first exit once you get on 74 is 'Exit 96 - Post Rd'. There's a Circle K gas station right off the exit.

Circle K
3801 S Post Rd.
Indianapolis, IN

Is that good with you guys? What time would you like to meet there?

This way we can gas up, etc. And you won't be back tracking at all... we'll be right on the route. smile.gif

Who all is planning on meeting me in Indy to drive down?

I would like to drive down through Cinci, so we can meet up with Rob, who will be passing through there.

I'm not opposed to staying an extra day if I can find logging in Knoxville, or wherever.

QUOTE (Bitter @ Jul 31, 2019 - 9:09 PM) *
So if some of us are meeting up in Indy to drive together...are we doing 65 through Louisville or 74 to 275 to 75 around by Cincinnati? I've driven it both ways, from memory the Cincinatti route was more laid back and scenic, roughly the same distance and the same driving time.

Hey Celica Family,

I'm organizing a Tail Of The Dragon meet for the weekend of August 17th & 18th 2019!

So, for those who don't know, the Tail of the Dragon is a stretch of road between Tennessee & North Carolina that's 11 miles long and includes 318 curves! THREE HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN CURVES! That's insane! Anyway - This road attracts motorcyclists and car enthusiasts from far and wide, who all want to experience this road. I've always wanted to go, so I decided to put a group together. I'm super excited for a weekend away with a bunch of friends & Celica's!

I've created a Facebook event for this, but I wanted to put this here for those of you who are not on the FB.

If you're interested in going, let me know!

I will add details here as I put them together. I'm currently working on the itinerary.

John used to be a member on here. smile.gif

Youíll have to ask Chris at the Midwest Meet about how he found out 96+ seatbelts wonít click into 94-95 latches. laugh.gif

For your wheels, youíll probably want spacers. 17x7 +40 will fit but will be near stock fitment. My Caldina wheels are 17x7 +45 (so 5mm more sunk in than your Konigs) and while they fit, they donít look good at that offset. Iím running 15mm spacers to make the wheels effectively +30 and front fitment is okay, but rear should really have a 20-25 mm spacer for better fitment. Iím not after stance or flush fitment so Iíve left it, but youíll see what I mean when you get the wheels mounted. Just a little bit more flush will make the car look a lot more aggressive.


John has taught me so much! The guy really knows his stuff. smile.gif And yes, he did mention that he used to be involved in the 6gc world.

What kind of spacers do you recommend? From my research, it seems like I should go with hub centric bolt on spacers. I have not yet looked into brand and quality yet.


QUOTE (NgoFcukinWay @ Feb 11, 2019 - 2:30 AM) *
She'll need spacers for that hella flush fitment. 10mm front and 15mm rear.

Annette, where'd you get the camber bolts from?


I'm confused. Shouldn't the front and back spacers be the same?! To get the factory flush fitment? My fenders are not rolled or anything.

I got Moog camber bolts from Rock Auto - the website said they were "performance" parts. And I know, I know, Ted said it was a waste of money, but I wanted to get real camber bolts so that I can hopefully understand how they work, by having the actual part, and putting it on myself. That's how you learn right?!

CAMBER BOLTS

You got the brakes, you got the coilovers, now you got the wheels. next logical step is an engine swap! wink.gif


Uh huh. Baby steps. Baby steps.

And somehow you've convinced me that this may eventually be a good idea.

Repetition and persistence work! Who knew!?

I'm sad I never got to see your Celica. Is there a build thread for it?

At least you can live vicariously through all of us! smile.gif

I have not been good about updating my thread lately. Oops! Because Life has been Happening. So, let me get you all up to speed.... here's what's new with NETS TOY!

I painted my lugs blue, BUT those got ruined when I got new tires (because of the impact gun that was used at the tire place). Oh well, it's all good.

SO. MUCH. DIRTY!



OH YEAH, I got new tires, that's exciting!!! I settled on Continental Control Contact's.

I've also got some negative camber on my rear wheels, so I purchased some camber bolts, but haven't had a chance to put those on yet. But hopefully I can get everything straightened out, so she will sit with the proper factory alignment. *Fingers Crossed*

Question for you all: Should I put camber bolts all around on all 4 sides, or only in the rear where the camber is out? Does it even matter? I bought 4 bolts, but was thinking of putting all 4 in the rear to make sure it will definitely straighten out at my next alignment.

ALL THE NEGATIVE CAMBER.


A new Celica friend of mine, fixed my rear defogger, which has made my winter driving experience a billion times better!!! Thank you John! smile.gif

John & I pulled a few seat belt receiver's from a '94 in a junk yard, and found out that it won't fit on my '99 because APPARENTLY they changed the seat belt design. I'm told it was after the face lift. So the 94-95 seatbelts will be different from 96-99 seat belts. Have you all found this to be true? My seatbelt light is ON, and John helped me track down that issue. So, as soon as I find a belt buckle from a 96-99, that issue should be fixed. smile.gif

It's Winter! Yay! She is a great daily, and she's a BOSS in the snow!

ALL ICED OUT!


There were a few times I really shouldn't have gone out driving in the ice & snow! Legit sketchy driving experiences. But I survived, and I didn't crash or slide off the road like literally everyone else was doing, so that was good!

THE SQUAD!


THIS CAR IS A TROOPER!


January was a really difficult month for me, and retail therapy is a good solution IMO, so I purchased some wheels that I've had my eye on for 2 years now! They're Konig Illusion wheels in blue! They're so pretty and I'm in love.

They're 215/40ZR17 W, 17x7 +40 offset. Wheels & Tires are COMPLICATED AF! SO. MANY. NUMBERS! But I've been asking lots of questions and watching a lot of YouTube videos on the topic. I just hope these fit, and I hope they're a nice ride. This will be my first experience with low profile tires. I've been told to avoid pot holes & to actually slow down for rail road tracks! (Right now, I just brace myself and go over RR tracks full steam ahead! LOL) But I'm told I will REALLY feel it with these tires, and I don't want to bend the new wheels either! I hope it will still be a comfortable daily, because I drive A LOT!

IS IT SPRING YET?! Cause I can't WAIT to put these bad boy's on!


Oh... AND... she rolled over 265,000 miles today! AMAZING! I love this car so very much!

Yes, we made it home safely! Turns out we had a caliper bolt vibrate out, and it was gone. Several other bolts were also loose too. The load on one of my coils is off, causing extra bouncing and vibrations on that one wheel. I plan to call BC tomorrow to figure out what the load is supposed to be, so I can reset it. Yay!

I got about halfway to Chicago today before I started having troubles too. frown.gif My caliper was rubbing & seizing up in reverse. And I'm pretty sure the preload on that coil is wrong.

I'm sad I missed everyone, I hope you all had fun.
