It's been a long time since I've shown the Celica much attention. Paint is getting bad, suspension components need replacing, still wanting to do the manual swap, and interior seat covers are getting rough.

Over the last 18 months, I got married, we bought our first home, family vehicle, and had a son (also our first). Crazy how the car that was once my infatuation has now worked its way down the totem poll in my life. But still, it remains special to me.

Proud that I was able to get the Celica going for it to be his first ever car ride, since we only live about a mile from the hospital. Other than that it's probably sat 9 of the last 12 months, due to it taking me much longer to get around to fixing issues, even easy ones.

I've come to terms that progress is likely going to be a lot slower moving forward but I still want to keep track of the progress.

Next in line is to get the fuel system finally fixed. Ordered a new bracket, pump, and pressure regulator. That should get it running again at least.

After that I will do a more in depth suspension repair consisting of poly motor mounts, axles, ball joints, control arms bushings, and I have a set of brand new Falken tires as well. Debating on adding some 10-15 HR or Ichiba spacers.

Debating if I want to go ahead and swap the tranny while I have it up, but this will obviously result in more down time.

New audio system, since apparently I have a never ending desire to continue upgrading this system.

And then paint job, and possible engine overhaul. Still have some pieces to a supercharger project a started collecting for a few years back that got put on hold. This will likely be the last hurdle.

Also, I came across a good opportunity to buy a mostly complete FJ40 and 2 FJ40 parts cars.

My Celica is currently down but should have it patched up this weekend.

I'll check my schedule and see which of those dates works best.

They are reliable even when things are broken.

My auto tranny started messing up a long time ago, so i told myself when it gives out i can finally do a manual swap.

But it's been years now and it still gets me anywhere I need to go!

This is the first off-road vehicle I've owned. Also, haven't had or even put thought into building another car since I got my Celica almost 10 years ago. Kind of strange having to share the love lol

thanks guys. I've never been part of another forum, and checking out some of the Land Cruiser ones gives me a headache. Really makes you appreciate just how organized 6gc is.. even if the activity has dropped.

Recently picked up an older model Land Cruiser.

I read an awesome article about one of these and said if I ever saw one reasonably priced i'd get it. Sure enough a month or so later it comes along.

It's going to need some work but it does run. Most things are functional but it has been neglected.

Going to edit post later with some more details, but just wanted to introduce the latest edition to what will eventually become my Toyota collection.

Lately i've been getting a bit bored driving my car and my bro recently got a stick shift 350. No one in our family's had a stick in years, so it was a cool to drive a sports car have access to driving it.

I had plans for a supercharger but i'm starting to come to the realization that I may have gotten burned on a project by a member here unfortunately.

So I figured the next best thing to do was to go for a manual swap. After searching for a running donor car with no luck, a 5 speed ST popped up in a local junkyard. I calculated the costs for each component in a spreadsheet and figured I can get away with a full swap for under $600, of course budgeting extra since these things rarely go without an extra expense or so.

I've read and researched and believe I have a full understanding into the installation. Only thing I'm still a bit stumped on is wiring. I haven't seen a good write up or explanation on how to do it with an OEM like wiring set up, where you have to depress clutch and using M/T ECU.

Going to keep reading but if anyone knows about it lmk.

I've already ordered my first parts and have more coming in, will pull the rest of the parts on Monday during half of memorial day sale. Also, bought some new suspension components for some are worn out.







The brake hardware on the left are older parts that i no longer need. Only mevotech part i will use from the picture below is the front sway bar end link.

Think we will be able to get 4-5 of us?

Denton is a pretty long drive for such a mini meet for me, especially with a distributor leak.

Mesquite's probably the furthest out I can go for a small meet, if that works for anyone else. sorry for late reply here

Nice work. Looks good.

However, i'm looking to put in a true 6.5 subwoofer (possibly an 8") rather than a component 6.5 speaker. I've heard these little subs and they sound good for the minimal space.

Hey,

I've been really interested in a similar set of speaker pods I saw on a members build thread. http://www.6gc.net/forums/index.php?showto...mp;#entry887815

I don't really have the time and materials to build a pair of these so I'm wondering if a member here would be able to build a similar set at a reasonable price.

Most shops I've visited quote somewhere in the range of $250 ish dollars a box. Feel like there should be some cheaper options out there.

The speaker would likely be 6.5 inch subwoofers, smaller than the ones in the pic, so they could fit discretely behind the rear speaker panel and not need much if any modification to the panel cover.

If you are good with fiberglass, or think you'd be able to custom fab a set of these for me. Let me know and we can go over some details.

Below are some pics to get an idea of what I'm looking for.
