Hello my name is Teo and this is my Celica. My focus is on audio and interior/exterior changes. Hope you enjoy.
7a-fe running on LPG, the rims are 16" OZ Superleggeras





I found a suitable hole to run the 0ga through the passengers side firewall. But my battery is on the drivers side. As I knew I will be upgrading my stock wire I decided to avoid running such a thick wire across the engine bay and connect it straight to the alternator. One little thing- the alternator positive bolt was a little bit short for the ring terminals at the same time. Went and bought this "tube" that is threaded on the inside.
Terminal for 0ga, washer, "tube" thingy, 5ga going from alternator + to battery +


Back seats be gone!


Falls floor done with multiple pieces to save on material. Practically zero spend on it.


Carpet


The box - 1.75 cub feet, kerfed port @ 32, 1.5 inch plywood walls
















Port painted in white satin


1.75 walls






Bad ass terminals smile.gif






Sub - Sundown Audio SA-12 , Amp SAZ-1500D

Each door will have a single 10" Neopro in a ported plywood enclosure tuned to around 60Hz. Adding fiberglass for even more strength.

Plywood

Door inner cover and front baffle for the enclosure.




Flushed driver




Big hole for the enclosure. Door will be covered in suede.


Port


Assembly






The flush weakened the baffle, so I added two pieces at the back of it for strength.


After the glue dries I will cut it out again.


Attention to details. tongue.gif Even tho it won't make a significant difference the piece was rounded over.
This piece is kinda of a brake point for the to separate, so called sections of the enclosure.


And the round over is here


8 clamps and left to dry.










Cut them up to save some space in the front by doing some relocations.


Glued back on


Fiberglassed the original panel to the ported enclosures




Covered some parts of the wood and fiberglass with foam for a softer feel when I cover them up.

Old and ugly gear ball


New

I bought the car with the original steering replaced with a MOMO RACE and decided to keep it. The leather was in bad shape tho so:

Test piece


Before






What happens when your hands are slightly wet -_-



Making holes, no thread in the needle


First piece done


Making a pattern for the more complex shapes


Connection stitch with black thread. It will be will be touched more, and if it was white, after a while it was bound to get dirty.






The finished product of my imagination












Overall I am very please with the result. It took me around 20-24 hours of hand work, measuring, cutting, using the sewing machine, making patterns, failures, stitching.

Used : white and black polyester thread, real leather from some dead animal, scissors, shaving blade, 3 needles, glue.
*optional : patience, good taste, the internet

Thanks, all smile.gif

I am currently doing 141.7dB at 35Hz. But there is a competition in a month and I am hoping for a slightly higher result.
And I have an 18 inch subwoofer shipping later this year. biggrin.gif

Are you using the small space of the Celica to your advantage?? I'm not too into sub competitions or anything but I've briefly read about people ordering subs to match the dimensions of their car. Volumetrically, their car is the sealed box.

Idk..maybe I'm making all of that up haha I thought it was a cool idea but yeah, keep up the good work thumbsup.gif

Nah, I am not that fancy, it's just my daily with a loud system in it. smile.gif
But a hatch works good for my purpose.
When the 18 comes tho I have a plan on walling it - basically you put a wall behind(one of the six of the box) you and mount the driver and port on it. Will be nuts.

It's the small things. smile.gif

Headliner bulbs changed to LED SMD's






I had a 1 meter/60 LED's strip which I cut from. Soldered and used the 3M tape on the back to attach to the inside. It was a bit time consuming, but I decided to not waste my time looking for bulbs and save some money. Under $1 upgrade.

This was shot in complete darkness with no flash, the LEDs are the only light source.


Next thing I did was use the same LED strip and do my license plate light.









And even more lights. This is a Ultraviolet neon. You can hardy see it at day and night, but add some white to it and the effect is there. Cool with white shoes or laces.

That's a great idea, Aston Martin did it, I believe.
