I decided that it was about time that I did a build thread to show my progress. My father surprised me with the car about 4 years ago. It was a very happy surprise as I've always loved 6th gen Celica's. It had 235k miles on the clock, and only cost $850. It needed a bit of interior work and a trans rebuild but besides that it was in pretty good shape. This is what it looked like when I got it.





Not long after I got it I decided I wanted leather seats so I bought some 7GC seats and put them in.

Sorry the pics aren't the best but all I had was a cellphone camera. The seats were the last thing I did for awhile as I had little money and interest. My interest was revived earlier this year and I decided to reconstruct my Celica to be better than it ever was. The first thing I did to start this was buy a GT-4 body.

After that I graduated from high school and got some nice JDM tails as a present.


With my car looking better and better by the day I decided it was time for some better looking wheels, and a decent set of tires.

Not long after that I scored a nice deal on some projectors, and retrofitted them with HID's. After that I decided it was time to plastidip the whole car white so it would all match.


Update on my future plans
I know have my plans set out for the car. My plans are
Acquire and install cool and rare JDM parts
Manual transmission swap.
A decently built 5s
Upgraded brakes with Avalon calipers in the front.
Complete suspension rebuild including sway bars.
