Hello friendly 6GC Community and other guest of this site!

Bit of background info =)

I've recently got my license (so im young) and as my first car I got a Celica SX redface.gif

The car was bought new from the dealer and has been in our family for the whole time. At least I can say that I trust the previous owners of the car biggrin.gif Thecar has been serviced regularly and has hit 330,000kms or so... (quite a few in my opinion). The car drives fine and has no problems what so ever. Only some faded paint and a few scratches and dents here and there. I have done (IMO) quite a bit of work on it. And i will post it all in this one go, and continue along.

My car when I first got it smile.gif


So yeah it needs A LOT of work to it in my opinion...

Of course im not going for those radical and overdone bodykits, like your Vielside kits and all that jizz jazz. I reckon those look over the top and sorta make you say, "0.0 GAY."

So me being simple as possible decided to remove the rear spoiler and to me it just adds more aggression to the car.



Bit of DIY HOME work and the spoiler was off and the holes were bog filled. smile.gif I didnt paint the car until about 3 months down the road.

After a few months of driving this fun car I made a decision to respray it.

Now i know I'm going to get hated on and everyone will say "What the hell did you do this for" and blah blah blah.

I resprayed it in the original colour. Greeny torquise. I like that colour. But i resprayed it outside... in the open.

Hate me all you want.

Yes it was a stupid mistake and i will never do it again. I did have a bit of dust and all in the clear coat. But its not perfect. But compared to the old faded paint i really happy. It cost me only $350!

During painting/Sunburnt/After Painting


So SHINY! 0.0

Sooo now im rolling around in my new HOME JOB painted celica..

.
..
...
.....
.......
.........

Don't you ever hop in your car and say. I need to do something. Lets spice it up. And then you go do it and everything goes soo well until a big little complication throws everything off?

LIKE THIS??!?!?!


Yes. I decided to change my steering wheel. I thought a steering comes off by removing the centre nut, and off you go. Well my car had for some reason a grub screw underneath the steering column holding it in. And being me, I grinded off the wheel and realised what a mess i have caused.

But all was good and a new steering wheel was put on. smile.gif



I also followed the yellowness of the new wheel and painted my dash to follow...


Looks ok IMO?

I shall be rolling like this for a while!

Thanks for reading and I shall continue on updating!

I want to do a custom duckbill, delete the antenna, LED taillight and do a custom diffuser on the rear bumper as far as the rear of the car smile.gif hopefully I inspired you smile.gif and because of your cars color carbon fiber accents wouldn't look bad at all wink.gif

I like the Mightycarmods sticker tongue.gif

The paint job looks really good! Who cars if it's not perfect... Nothing you ever do will be 100% perfect, and no matter how you try 'little' complications will stall you for hours haha tongue.gif

Good Job so far tongue.gif

Here's a little update on whats changed in and on my celica!

Bought a pod filter, with some piping and ran it to my fender, following the right up that urbandork did.

Thread here:
http://www.6gc.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=21648

SUCKING IN THE COOLEST AIR POSSIBLE!!
Where it sits now.


Close up.

Love the pod sound, especially in 3rd gear biggrin.gif

In addition, i got brand new wheels!! A full set! and keeping it a legal 35% tint all round biggrin.gif

Jks i picked up some hub caps from super cheap auto. Bargain for only 15 dollars for the set.

Also i found some black gutter paint and repainted the inside of my interior, whilst changing the steering wheel to a better and slimmer SAAS steering wheel.

LOOKS BETTER?!


BASSSS DROPPP WOBWOBWOBWOB!
2x12" Apline S Subs biggrin.gif And a 850W Mono Block to Power it.


Installed Some ebay HID's with White LED Parkers to match.

And found this sort of Scratched cannon muffler on the side of the road.

It was left at the front of this guys house that had a WRX sitting at the front with what looks like a shiny new muffler.
Maybe it was off that?

Thats it for now.

Bought some 194 LED bulbs, and some Clear Sidemarkers with Matching Clear Indicators as well!

Hopefully to see them soon smile.gif

Till then!

Actually the coolest air would be directly outside of the car, but that's just tacky. tongue.gif

I think what happened is that muffler was held onto a Civic with zip-ties and they finally gave way.
