Just picked this baby up last week for 4000$ and can't wait to get started on it! It's a 1994 GT-S with just over 200000 kms on it, runs like new!

The day I bought her:




It's in pretty good shape other than a few minor rust spots that I'll be getting touched up as soon as all the snow melts, and a small dent in the hood. Also the front Toyota badge is broken, just ordered a new one from the dealer today.
Hard to see in this picture but it looks like somebody closed the hood and there was something under it and it made the dent and they tried to fix it


Some more pictures:






First "mod" haha, thought I would take off the badge while I wait for a new one but didn't notice there was 2 holes for it so I left it in (upside down tongue.gif)


Just put a new Alpine head unit in yesterday:


Have a 10" JL sub that I took out of my old car, will be building a box and wiring it in when I get a chance

Plans:

- TRD replica shifter knob (ORDERED)
http://www.ebay.com/itm/140920873419?item=...160&vxp=mtr

- Black shift boot with red stitching

- GT-Four riser blocks (ORDERED)

- SpreeLED full car kit (ORDERED)

- White or gold wheels, thinking Rota Boost Golds:
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-CxD1GXhcLmY/UGdA...600/boost_2.jpg

- Possibly JDM tails

- Short ram intake

- GT-Four front end conversion

- Mesh for the front grille

- Possibly fog lights

- Clear sidemarkers and turn signals

$4,000? Good god cars are expensive up there. That aside nice buy. I say you should've just broken away the rest of the "circle" on the front badge and let it be. tongue.gif

yup, Winnipeg prices. for just a bit more, it would already put you in gt-four territory.
anyway, it looks like you have quite a list of mods underway, may I suggest you adding heated seats to that list? definitely worth it during the winter months.
and if you want to upgrade to leather seats, my old 95 GT-S is at International (junk yard) off of Day street. sadly the gt-four conversion and lhd projectors were totalled and most of the mods are gone.

Oh awesome, how hard is it to do heated seats? And could it be done with your leather seats?

Also, found a guy selling some parts on kijiji:

Do you think any of these parts would be worth it, also considering I would have to paint them?

I've always been a fan of GT-Four conversions than any other aftermarket bodykits out there, but that's just me.
I was tempted to get the C-ONE kit before, but ended up going the GT-Four route.
I think the carbon fiber oem hood would go great with the white exterior.

I was thinking of getting one of the hoods considering I need a new one anyways. How would a carbon fiber hood hold up in the winter? It can get to around -45 degrees C around here

Also what would be a good price to offer for the carbon fiber hood? There aren't that many celicas around and it doesn't look like this guy gets too many offers on it so I'm sure I can bring him down quite a bit...would 200$ be going way too low?

Just fyi, the guy's name is keith. he's a member of the forum (kloudkicka).
if all you want is an oem hood, i have one at my parents place in wpg in mint condition but it's also red.
i've had it sitting for years and will let it go for cheap. i'm leaving for wpg thursday morning if you're interested.
but if you're after carbon fiber, i would think it's worth at least $300.

From what I can find the Seibon and VIS CF hood is $500-600 new shipped. Eh, you could try offering $200 and if you could get it for $300 that'd be good I suppose.

Quick update, nothing big.
Got the parts I ordered from the dealer, the clear Tundra door lenses and a shiny new Toyota badge smile.gif




Now just waiting for my SpreeLED kit and GT4 riser blocks! Then I'll probably be taking a little break for a while to collect some money haha

Not a fan of different color hoods on our cars. Idk why, but the body line looks weird with one.
