Get some open ended lug nuts that fits your studs and have them below where you're cutting, so then after cutting you take the lug nut off and it cleans up and straightens out the threads for you.


Yes sir, that's exactly what I did. I'm leaving the original studs one thread past the spacer length, hopefully it still doesn't interfere. Went out to buy a grinder and man... I have not used one of these in forever. Slow but sure.

Haha iirc Mike Thoma has a even deeper setup. 17x9 with 255 but I think he's like +17 front and +23 rear. Might be wrong though...

Test fitted my wheels. Rears are close to flush, fronts might need a notch of - camber. Getting my tires this weekend so we will know more.

Nice bro, hopefully they fit. My front definitely rub right now so I need to camber it in more as well. Back fit but not flush, getting some spacers soon too to deal with that.

Ahh more parts to buy, more money to spend... I'm totally going overboard right now but oh well, my bank account can handle it. Hopefully if things all come together I might just make it out to the spring meet in time lol.

Finally got a heat gun, and borrowed my cousins fender roller equipment. HOPEFULLY it helps my rubbing problem w/ the new wheel setup.


Trying to roll up the front, or at least what I can get of it. Passenger side done so far, stopped caused I cracked the paint and was pissed at myself.
Also finally removed the v6 emblem from my trunk; but you can still see some of the adhesive residue. I'll wash that out later.


15mm spacers have been order and waiting for those to come in.

WD-40 or the like and some heat helps with getting leftover adhesive off, then wash clean and touch up with some wax afterwards.

Sorry bro I lied, at least it sees like it so far. After letting the wheel set it seems to be tucked in a bit.
But my driver side still does poke out more due to the hybrid axle; but I'm waiting on my coilovers before saying if it rubs or not.

Sorry bro, gonna have to wait. Celica is on DD duty due to the FRS breaking down. I'll post pictures when I get the right fitment.

Been battling with the FRS this whole week, long story short the shift select lever pin broke so had to drop the transmission just to get to it.
Any recommendations on removing the broken pin is appreciated!


As for the Celica I got some BC (BR Series) coilovers. Wasn't the original idea but I was rubbing on the struts (i think) w/ the new wheels.
Here are the rear compared to my old setup (forgot to take pictures of the front; but it was a big difference in width).


Also got some H&R spacers (15mm) for the rear. Was going to take the hubs to a shop but w/ the right tools ended up doing it myself!


Got the rear running top camber bolts, maxed out at -1.75 (if that's the correct max, went of eibach camber bolt specs cause they look like them).


For the front I'm running close to 0 degrees camber; but all these numbers are guesses until I go in for an alignment.
Car was almost done and ready for alignment (no more rubbing or ugly gap); but the FRS broke so I had to raise the car up to DD and handle the nasty MN roads.
Once the FRS is done I'll lower it again and get some nice photos to show. Plus I'm also waiting on my wheel caps, they've been on a 4-week back order.

I know right? Whelps hopefully I can get it fixed soon. Since I drained the FRS tranny I now need new fluid.
Planning on getting some Redline MT90. Since shifting in the Celica has been a bit stiff Imma do a tranny flush too for it.

So I did a thing in the meantime b/c I wanted to see what it's like...


Why buy a lip when you can make one?


I'm probably going to run it until it rather falls off (most likely) or when I get an actual pre-face lip.
On the other hand I went to the junkyard and found these:


Got them off an Avalon; going to clean them and try them before I go further and powder coat.

This is what happens when you shift like a gorilla. tongue.gif You should be able to use a punch to get the broken pin out.

Ha ha I will admit I have done a bit of spirited driving with it, especially in the snow. I'm suspecting it broke before though, but the previous owner welded it in.
I ended up drilling it, which was easier than I expected; but overall probably $100 in parts for replacing a lot of things. But I'm glad I got it up and running again.

I finally got around to lowering the Celica the way I wanted. Coilovers are finally set in, garage-seal lip is holding; just frustrated that my center caps have been on back order since june.
But I got the car ready in time for a family meet.



Bonus image: my nephew's ST185 RC that he recently imported over.


Not sure what's next. More body work? Engine upgrade? We shall see... Probably should track it one of these days.

I keep wanting to order center caps for my Volks but I don’t want to wait as long for the caps as I did for the wheels, and they really put some “just because we can” prices on them.

Still probably a top 5 car for me on here. Like it came from the factory that way. Keep on keeping it classy. Beautiful.

I was thinking that too; I recently joined the 1mz group on facebook and man the number of trd superchargers... But reading tonythetigers "words of wisdom" on the solaraguy forum, I may end up trying for turbo if I can.

Seriously! My blue one's came in (I ordered a pair of blue and a pair of red) fine; but holy crap the wait time from ft86 factory. We'll see if they "come in August." If I have to wait another month Imma ask for a refund and order elsewhere.
