Well, very long overdue but I figured I'd start this thread so I'm not posting everywhere else. laugh.gif

but, I'll write more later. Just wanted to start the thread and that's pretty much it. tongue.gif!

LOL thanks! tongue.gif

but ok,

lets start at the beginning. I first got the car in 2005 I believe. My dad got his 91 civic t-boned by a firebird and we needed a car so he picked up the cell. I didn't think much of it at first since he drove it most the time and it wasn't my car. It went through my family before it got to me. My dad and mom, then my sister, and finally to me. It had 120,000 miles then.

Pure OEM-ness




Got it and then not too long after I wanted to start modding. Didn't know what ST or GT was back then and the limited edition options made it even more confusing for me until I saw that I had the 7afe. frown.gif Looked and looked but found NOTHING! then by chance I came on this forum called... "6GC"? I was like, "awesome! finally!"



5/1/07

stalked the forums here for a while before I decided on my first mod. I got a 3in intake pipe from my bro's civic and bolted it on with a carbon fiber filter. gave it such a nice sound


fit nicely given that I never had the battery hold down and used bungee cords LOL! laugh.gif has never given me trouble though. biggrin.gif

I didn't have money so photoshop was my best friend. LOL laugh.gif












but alas, she stayed stock.




then finally, coughed up some dough for some JDM tails from Vincent Doggy. best mod ever I think.
got those first, and then scoped around on ebay and found the JDM roof spoiler not too long after.

before


after

FEBUARY OF 2008
sad sad day.... I crashed my car...
there were no pics. I pushed it back into the deepest crevices of my mind. frown.gif
Crash was not my fault. stupid walmart chick on her stupid cell phone backed right into me as i was leaving the parking lot.
wouldn't have been so bad if the airbags hadn't gone off and smash my frickn' windshield. I swear Toyota should've done something about that design???

but i was so stuck. I needed a car badly and the insurance gave me $5000 for the car. I really didn't have time to search for a car so I decided to just fix it. frown.gif!! I kick myself for that. could've just bought a front clip and been swapped out by now. LOL oh well. bad timing is all.

drove my brothers' civic while they fixed it.

6/17/08

all fixed and
more goodies were purchased.

OEM sides smile.gif


TOM's lip. SEXY!


oh yeah, also bought clear side markers and turn signals a while before this picture. just didn't take other pics til then.

9.28.08

I drove around with a white lip on for a while because the stupid people that painted my car didn't frickn' put primer on the bumper. drove around and it started to peel off bit by bit.

So I kept the lip on to hide the paint chips. I'd rather rock a white TOM'S lip than paint chips.

eventually went back to the shop and complained. they were like.. "oh, wasn't our fault. someone must've put some sorta chemical on it before we got it." TOTAL BS of course. I could see that no prep work was done. so i got a repaint for free biggrin.gif



then i quit my job and focused on school for a while. so the mods stopped.


eventually i kicked myself into remembering that I had a lip and side skirts to paint. so i got on it

5.2.09








a little wavy but, hey not bad for my first time and being that i used spray can also, looks pretty damn good! biggrin.gif

so here's some shots of it when i first put it on my car.



then my spray can got clogged up so I stopped. couldn't paint my sides. frown.gif

also, this was the same time that I made some custom door sills.

forgot to add.

bought a 3rd brake light overlay.
cheep and effective. LOL laugh.gif






bought a new HKS style filter from ebay because my old one wasn't doing the job smile.gif




and
bought a strut bar from ebay.
it wasn't the neon ones.
It was actually made for our cars but probably not enough support for it because I can't seem to find it anymore????
fits perfectly and is pretty sturdy too. works well. wish i had more info on it.

Hmm that break cover is something I've been looking for.

Debating if wanted to create it in the cursive type of celica writing. Being I need to de-badge my hatch, I still wanted it to be known it is a celica. Love it.

UPDATE

Pissed at myself cuz I just messed up my fender. link here: click

so....

to make myself feel better I'll put up my semester project I was working on at school.
I loved going to school just to do something I'd really love like taking photos of my cell.

so here is my magazine that I made featuring my cell. LOL laugh.gif


Front Cover:




















Back Cover:




so there it is. I think that would be the big update that will bring this thread up to date finally. Another other incidences and upgrades shall be posted up here accordingly. Hopefully no more bad stuff to come. My cell won't look like that for a while. but it'll give me incentive to fix it up and make it even better. smile.gif
