Last week I celebrated my 20th and it was pretty effin sweet.

i woke up to the mail lady dropping of my 8" midbasses i bought from urbandork. thanks again!


Installed immediately..

My old speakers had major issues lol


Then not even an hour later my roomate told me he'd have his buddy put on my N1 knockoff for me.
so we took it to his shop, and he did a little cut and paste, w/o new header, for now...




I like that the exhaust sound is deep at idle and low rpms, and when im driving and get to the higher rpms it is barely noticeable, not obnoxious lol

you should really upgrade the rest of the piping. it'll make it deeper and a little louder but u will gain HP

i want to eventually..
the guy who installed it said he'd put on new pipe from the stock header flange back when i had the money but he was dead against installing a header because he said hes seen teens come in and have him install them and mess up the engines.. but if i brought him the headers anyway he'd put it on for me too

Alright so lots of updates that happened over the last few months and i posted occasionally in the "today i...." thread and what have you but haven't updated this thread since last summer..

Ill try not to talk too much so LOTS of pictures to show:

First I finally got rid of the horrible gray/beige headliner and went black


and did up the plastics to match


Then proceeded to work on the interior and went for a VIP/Luxury look. I know many of you don't care for a luxury 6gc (for the most part). I enjoy it.
So I vinyl wrapped the interior plastics and got rid of that horrible fast and furious rattle-can red paint.
I also installed "wood flooring," again not everyone's cup of tea, but i like it biggrin.gif

Overall:


Notice the floormats? Wood Floors biggrin.gif

Driver side:


Pass. side:


The rears:


And..... of course the trunk wink.gif


From my point of view:


From the passengers point of view:


Little more of the trunk:


For a quick how to:
Buy some laminate wood flooring of your liking, you could use real hardwood if you wanted but it's be more expensive and time consuming.


And buy some hard-board sheets, mine were 2'x4'x3/16" as well as an adhesive. I chose felt-back vinyl flooring adhesive/leveler and applied with a trowel to the backboard. And place the flooring strips on it.


Traced the floormats:


and cut (we used an angle grinder)



example (rear driver side):



all the inside mats cut:


upclose of drivers floor cut where the trunk release sits


sadly didnt take any in-progress pics when i did the trunk frown.gif

Despoilered!!! and removed the rear wiper


Bought and installed Sokie Tech Hood Dampeners



Also I finally got around to lowering my celica (should have been one of the first mods)
I took a small risk and bought Stagg SHS Struts for 150 shipped off of ebay.
Also to lower it I purchased Megan racing springs.

For those who are thinkin about stagg struts.. tho its only been roughly 2 months I recommend them for those on a budget thumbsup.gif


The night I finally decided to drop it I forgot my roomate lended out his floor jack so i resoted to the old school stock trunk jack.. it was a PITA, just saying rolleyes.gif




Next day pics..
side shot

front gap

rear gap

stance from rear


And Newest Update! biggrin.gif

Last week I recieved my MOOG camber bolts, but held off installing them until I got the rear spacers that I bought.

And yesterday I recieved my Rear 1" Spacers from 6gc member djgeo05, formerly Axel04's celi.



And I installed those woot.gif
Some pics, before and after

wheel gap before

wheel gap after bolts and spacers


before

after



So thats all for now, I think, lol.
Thanks for looking smile.gif
