I run those exact rotors with brembo pads on my lexus. I track the car 4-5 times a summer, by far the best rotors I have owned!

You could've just painted the pad plates a different color?

I thought about but dont think it would have turned out right. It doesn't bother me as bad as I thought it would

Finally got around to swapping the rear drums to disc brake setup.

Big difference. Braking is more controlled and even. Looks a lot cleaner too.

It's taken many months to get all the pieces together and finding the time to install myself, but upgrading all 4 hubs was definitely worth it. Learned a lot in the process

Thanks. And i'd def recommend doing so. It's not as hard as it is time consuming. Especially if you don't have the money to just shell out for all the parts at once and have to collect them as I did.

Also forgot to mention, I modified my fenders to the JDM/Euro style

And..

They weren't kidding about the brake dust on the green stuff pads, that stuff is quick to collect.

if duckbill is another name for the hatch visor I got it online for $110 but I think they may be out of stock or discontinued. Let me know if you were talking about something else

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HIC-Toyota-Celica-...r-/171495526365

you may want to message them and see if they can get a hold of any. The manufacturer was HIC.

I couldn't find a set of JDM fenders that wouldn't put me over $800 after shipping and painting, so I went for the delete as well.

$40 for the side markers from eBay, plus $50 from salvage yard for fenders along with $200 to paint/modify and I was well below half the cost of actual JDM fenders biggrin.gif

Thanks!

I have plans in the works for performance. Don't want to say what just yet, but hopefully soon smile.gif

Other than that. A little more tweaking on suspension.. I want install my strut bars soon and upgrade my end links. Also, need to powder coat the GT4 wheels and buy tires for them.

When you going to get some pics up of your ride man?

Hey - great progress on your car. One of your photos reminds me of the time we had a meet. Continue the great work on your car man. I'm also doing some updates on mine so hopefully will be somewhat ready by mid or late February. Always glad to see a member in Texas that has passion in the Celica. Let's have a meet up at Starbucks or something when our cars are ready.

For sure man, I'd love to see your new Celica. They're so underrated around here it's crazy.

I should have some big changes coming this month, so late February or early March would be a good time.

Mounted the 94-95 gt4 alloys today.

A lot of people seem to have a love or hate attitude for them but i really like them.

On one hand sporty, offer wider tire options, and are just pure JDM throwback classics, on the other they are a bit outdated and bland.

Planning on painting or powder coating soon (haven't decided which route yet) in hopes that a nice metallic grey brings out their full potential.

Just bought ordered a set of BFGoodrich tires to wrap them in too

So replacing the motor mounts was no easy task. Surprisingly the rear mount wasn't all that difficult, just had some bad luck.

Front and passenger side aftermarket mounts I ordered from rock auto did not fit! Greatly delayed my progress.

In the process I stripped the threading in the chassis that one of the passenger side bolt goes too.

Hoping this won't be to difficult to remedy.

After that's done..


I have a set of mevotech front end links and sway bar bushings, moog rear end links, custom front strut bar and GT4 rear bar to install.

First I got to get these on, after I get the 3 spoke gt4 alloys repainted.







After that........









.....And it's not an a/c compressor haha

haha ooh ahh is correct.

Ya it is a supercharger, not off the 4agze tho.

I'll put up more details as I get around to installation biggrin.gif

Should have updates on this in the coming months after suspension is ready for the additional power.
