How many Renaissance Red '94-95 Celicas does one person need? Also wooo more power! Seriously though, how many?

At first I thought it was a photoshop, then I was like nope those are all different and it'd be such a pain to photoshop something this realistic. Therefore the only explanation is...

How many? Not enough! If i line them up you can see the colour pallet of how Red fades over time tongue.gif

Srsly though, the panels are no good on both cars so I can't even use them!

To fill in everyone quickly before the new celica:

I got a fart cannon from a Nissan
A detailing business in front of Uni was getting demolished, and they had a celica as their sign, I got dared to ask if they would give me sign, and they did surprisingly, so that lives in the garage
I changed my cluster colour from black to white
I went on a cruise







now that we are up to date:
A 3sgte swapped regular celica came up for sale 2,500 km away for super cheap and after some thought decided to buy it and have it delivered,
Car is pretty rough from sitting for a while and non-running at the moment (apparently fuel pump dead)

Now the question is.. do i just pull it out straight away and give it a clean or swap out the fuel pump on this car and see if i can get started and see what if it runs properly, then proceed to pull the engine out.

Either way with how laws work here in Australia, i want to return it to the stock airbox and pipe so if anyone has one for sale please hit me up smile.gif

Here are some more photos, sold the bonnet already to get some of the funds back and then gave it a clean on the inside just to keep it tidy





But for now! going to give the guards a good buff and swap them out with the other-other celica and get that one ready to sell!

Hmmm, part of me says get it running in the car it's in provided it doesn't incur additional cost that'd be wasted. Then you know if the engine is ok before going through the trouble of swapping and/or refreshing it to only find out it needs a complete rebuild.

I would get it running in the car first. If you swap it and it doesn't start, then you don't know if it was an existing issue, or a mistake you made during the swap.
You never said anything about this having Tien coilovers!!

Ewww, how did that get so nasty. I guess he wasn't kidding when he said it needed a new pump, so if anything it's a good sign I guess.

Long time no update.. will write up a proper update sometime in the future, but replacing the fuel pump did not fix the issue, and by this point I started to have a girlfriend that was annoyed by me taking up both garage spaces and the driveway with 3 cars, so I just took the engine and good bits out and sent the car to a scrapyard, whereas the other Celica I cleaned up and sold,
actually felt good to park my own car in the garage again haha.

Since then stuff has happened, i kept hitting my splitters on kerbs and one fell off and was sort of hanging there, here is one of my most recent photos
I've just been driving to work and uni and enjoying some mountain runs in the weekend, and looking to give it some love again soon, especially fixing that floppy splitter.
