Hey everyone, long time since I have been on here (sad to see the site almost abandoned/empty, but I'm stubborn and refuse to think 6gc.net is a thing of the past). 2019 happened and my 15 year dream of owning an authentic and legal GT4 in the states has come true. No intent to heavily modify it since it's a WRC; plan is to lightly resto-mod and upgrade to some of the nicer later model items and dealer option parts etc.. Likely do a little work under the hood but retain as much of the stock set up as possible.

My Previous Celica threads from years ago, funny to see how young and naive I was. Definitely learned a lot working on these and through this forum:

Car Progress Thread v1.0 (Black 94' 2nd Gen 3S swap, owned 2006-2010)
Car Progress Thread v2.0 (Red 94' 3rd Gen 3s swap, owned 2010-2018)

Here is the car in it's current condition (March 2020):



Current parts list (March 2020):

Engine & Performance
-Apexi Intake
-Fujitsubo Legalis R Catback Exhaust

Handling & Braking
-OZ Racing F1 Rims

Work so far:

-Removed the stickers and vinyl on the car, only saved a TRD badge on the license plate surround, the rest wasn't really my taste (transferred most of the stickers to my toolbox).
-Removed the aftermarket "racing pedals", luckily the way they mounted the didn't damage to stock pedals at all.
-Removed the aftermarket Electronic Toll Collection, the radar detector and satellite TV antennas that were for the old head unit.
-Installed a new head unit since the one it came with was a KENWOOD Japanese market only model that couldn't be switched to English.
-Installed a back up camera since my garage is a tight fit and I don't want to hit anything.
-Installed my TRD 300 km/h speedo and corrected the odometer so it is exactly the same as the one I removed.
-Moved the microphone for the hands free calling from the steering column to the top of the drivers A-pillar so it is more discreet.
-Installed OEM style garage door opener (OEM style garage opener)


Backup camera install, wired it through the same grommet for license plate light:





I used BLOX adapter to convert the holes from JDM to USDM license plate, I have also since slid the camera over so its centered.

TRD Speedo install:
