Ok....sooo....I know it's a bit late for me to start it but might as well do it now. Lol. I bought my 1997 Toyota Celica GT for $4,500 on February 27, 2012. It had 175,000 miles on the cluster. It was in very good condition. The only problem I had on it was it had a CEL light on. Which was just the speed sensor in the cluster not working. Replaced that and the CEL was cleared. Also my car didn't pass emissions test but I eventually had that fixed after running on premium and Lucas Cleaner. Overall I was more than happy to pay the overpriced $4500. smile.gif

Very ricey and not my flavor.

Here's a link to my FB album of my car. It has all of my pics of my silly97.
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2...0238&type=3

Here some things my car had on when I first bought it:

Bone stock performance
7GC GTS Rims
AG Lowering Springs
JDM Tail lights
Stock side skirts
2post spoiler
Rear tinted windows
Window stickers




Here's what I've done to it so far:

Performance
Injen Short Ram Intake


Suspension
Megan Coilovers


Ichiba Spacers 15mm and extended lug studs all around


Eibach Camber Bolt


Fender Rolled All Around



Exterior
3k Hi halogen bulb


8k Lo HiD conversion
3k halogen fog light bulb
Amber turn signal bulb


Clear side lights


TRD Roof Spoiler REPLICA(Hi-C)


OEM SSIII front grill
Tom's Front Lip REPLICA(Zonz540)


Enkei RPF1 17x8 +45Front +35Rear
Nankang NS1 205/40/17



Interior
TRD Shift Boot


SpreeLED White Gauge Lights


GT4 Rear Strut Bar




I do have a set of GT4 splitters that are waiting to be painted.



The rest of my plans for my car is to get it repainted and installed with the gt4 splitters. I want to go wit the Supra Limited Edition Silver code 1B9. I also want to get a custom exhaust. I really want the JDM projectors also. We will see what else will be added onto my list as days goes by. Lol. Also I'm planning to keep my silly FOREVER!!! XD

How it looks before:



How it looks now:

FINALLY! I have looked for this before and couldn't believe you hadn't made one yet! tongue.gif

I can't remember if its actually been said or if I was just planning to say it, but I was always very interested in your thread, because I also bought a Silver '97 Celica GT-equiv. manual in March last year for my first car tongue.gif It amazed me how much you had done in the same time that I hadn't... But I'm getting my act together now and just put 7th gen wheels on too... Hopefully I'll beat you to the projector headlights soon wink.gif

Edit: And your overpriced $4500... I paid $8k and had to fly to the other side of the country to get it! tongue.gif

I never really thought of making one actually. Until Ryan convinced me. Lol. Silver and teal is my face colors on our 6gc btw. We will see who gets them projectors. Haha. Dang. You really did pay a lot then. Lol. I thought I had it bad.

Yea. Im actually lower than that right now so I have to come at my driveway at a hard angle or I'll scrape. Lol. Earlier today I went over speed bumps at the mall parking lot. I drove my front wheel over and once it went over I heard the bottom of my frame scrape. Lol. Its too much so ima lift it up a bit tomorrow. Drop it back down when I want to again. Lol.

Haha, and I was going to buy a red set of Trd splitters a couple of weeks ago too, until the local shops quoted $250 to respray them. So I am just about to order the overpriced not so great condition silver ones on eBay tongue.gif

It makes me think that the GT4 splitters only came stock with red GT4. LOL! J/p. Yea. Sorry to grab the lip off of you but it was one of the two lips that I wanted to get for my car and it was already silver so I had to get it. Lol.

BTW. I raised my car. Raised the rear up like 1/4" and the front 3/4". So now I don't have to worry about scraping my bottom frame over speed bumps and scraping my front lip. smile.gif

EDIT: Finally got around and took a pic. It's still low but not too low. Just about perfect height for DD to clear them speed bumps and driveways. wink.gif

This forum is full of good looking Celicas. smile.gif

A noob question, did you roll it so when you drop it the tires won't hit the fender?

Also, do you have any pictures of the SpreeLED kit and some pictures of the process. Or it's just 3 LEDs that you plug/unplug and done?

Thanks. Yea. Its recommended to roll at least the rear febders for our cars if you want to go low. The front is already factory rolled but id still recommend getting it rolled.

The spreeled kit that I bought was for the cluster and the climate and clock but I only installed the cluster because the other two was too complex for me. Lol. Only pic I have of it is the one I have above.

Got done with 3 hrs of sanding. All i need to do now is prime it, paint it, and gloss it. Can't wait for it to be done and installed! This is my first time ever prepping anything for a repaint. wink.gif
