Nice! What are you planning to use to control the engine?

I've been following this thread for a whole and am glad to see you're not giving up on 6GC and still come here to post updates.

Not sure yet, I have been drooling over a Syvecs ECU but in all likelyhood I will go for a Link ECU (Whatever the best one is for my needs when the time comes)

I never gave up on 6gc, pretty much the only forum I have stuck with, it was photobucket that ruined it for everyone, i just took time to find a replacement. Not sure if imgur is the best option but time will tell.

I see photobucket has restored links to pictures.....temporarily anyway.

Still no engine though.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to ask for forgivness, for i have strayed from the path of Celicaship, i have faultered from the line of righteousness and japanese and have fallen into Ford ownership, i request you forgiveness and understanding for i have project number 2.

A Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, for this i must be chastised and struck down from the holy Toyota land left wandering the highways with oversteer and funny suspension.

By means or redemption and forgiveness the Celica is nearly finished, the engine is all but complete and ready to go in.

But all joking asside i will be viewing the Mustang next month to get a feel for it as it has sat for 20 years but it looks to be a great next project and will eventually be a gift for my daughter.

Well that didnít last long, letís just say.....the Ford wasnít.....as advertised and rust had already taken most of it. So what did I buy instead.....a Lancia, yep, from one rust bucket to another, but at least this one has made it onto my driveway, in the US its called the Lancia Scorpion, the rest of the world knows it as a Lancia Montecarlo, its a 2 seat sports car that was used as a base for the group B rally car, Lancia 037, so thatís what I am building, it also happens to be my dream car.

On the Celica front, the engine has arrived, I have most of the parts to enable me to put it into the car, just a few jobs to do, attach the gearbox, the. Its the long hard slog of saving up for things like turbos etc which is going to be difficult with the Lancia eating up a lot of my spare cash.

Just read through this whole thread. I'm so short on words right now on how you do literally everything yourself! And how I depth you've gone with it too! Makes me think, when I've got my own place, hopefully with a garage, I'm going to want to take everything apart and send all the nuts and bolts off to be plated as they're about the only thing left on mine that need doing (oh, and rear crash bar).
Your getup and go to learn as you go is astounding to be fair. You give everything a go. Even made your own chassis rotisserie! And now you're bead rolling making your own floor pans! laugh.gif

I'm sorry about the bad news near the end, but I'm so glad you've pulled through it and got your zest for this back (as well as the lancia, I'll be following that progress on Facebook eagerly!) Am keenly following and do really hope you finish this through to the end.
So much respect to you.

How did it go with the resin casting? I noticed you didn't actually mention much about any progression with it. It's something I managed to do with mine and am looking to perfect to get them out to other people (actual clear transparent lens with no light diffusing pattern bumps on the inside of it). A vacuum chamber is a necessity with ckearcasting resin (just a heads up after my many lessons learned!) as well as the type of silicone curing affects it too (just learning that one) as condensation curing can cause fogging which for my first near bubble free lens, had a touch of light fogging. Haven't mastered the use of the other type of silicone yet though, I need bigger pots to mix it in and degass because it keeps overflowing into my vac chamber laugh.gif
