Well, just as I promised here are the pictures. Because I don't want to clog this post with just lots of crazy pictures that might be good for nothing, I've included only a few and then set up a gallery on my website. I hope you find it helpful and/or entertaining. I am open to answer any questions you might have if any.

Here are some pictures:

Was the gt-4 fogs plug and play from the stock foglight connector?


Yes, just plug and play. As if they were the originsl fog lights. All lights were so. I haven't connected the side markers yet, and although I heard that a modification would be necessary, I doubt it because I tried the connector to the light housing and they matched. All I need to do is extend the cable.

By the way, I took the car to the body shop just last Wednesday. I will be going today to see its progress and take pictures.

Hi you all,

Here are some of the pictures of how the car looks like at the moment. There are a few things left to do, but I will stop for now as I want to enjoy the car as it is now.

The things that I have left to do include:

1. O.Z. Racing rims in white (I am currently looking for a set)

2. Mud flaps in red

3. Castrol Celica vinyls from skewer.co.uk

4. Personalizing the plate to a Celica theme concept (accepting private messaged suggestions with a maximum of seven characters. I have one in mind though).

5. New leather upholstering.

6. Minor cosmetic details.

I think, unless you can add to the list, I will be done once these things are done. What do you guys think?

Oh, as a side note, some of you might remember that I was having occasional problems with mild overheating, well I replaced the radiator cap and that solved the problem. It is amazing how such small things make a difference.

Here are the pictures:



























Oh, and thanks to Nial who suggested to paint the area surrounding the license plate black just like the rally car. I like it very much.

Man, if I were not so busy, I would really love to. Looking at other cars and meeting people with the same passion. I currently have two jobs and got almost no time for other things frown.gif

Hi everyone, I am reviving this old thread because I have an update. The car has changed since the last pictures above. It now has the OZ rims I wanted (since Feb. 2013) and I just received the decals from Mook the day before yesterday. As you might imagine, I am very excited because the project is close to completion. I will soon post pictures of the car with the rims, then post pictures of the car as I apply the decals to the post the final product. It is going to look amazing woot.gif

Looking forward to seeing it completed smile.gif

Personally if you are going for the full on rally look, I would remove the side skirts as the rally cars didn't have them, and I think the GT4s look better without them.......I investigated this on the GT I purchased resently, and it's an easy task if they havnt been bonded on. Just depends on how much rust has built up behind the skirts.........I then pluged the mounting holes with rubber blanking grommets so at any time I could refit the skirts......just a suggestion smile.gif
