Greetings everyone! Welcome to my project thread. My car has been with me for nearly six years, and its time for my ST204 to get a new Paint job!

Day One




There, so far so good! Now for the front...




There we go...

I decided to take my time with the front, Don't wanna break any clips, especially for those Kouki lights!!


Going to put these parts over m'hya.



Alright, took care of some stuff, but I still have a long way to go. I'll just cover it and get ready for the next day.

We almost painted ours Blizzard Pearl but decided in favor of Super White. The pearls were all too creamy for us, but I do still love seeing a good Pearl white!

Day Two



Removed the Tail Lights with harness, and the Plate Garnish. Now to cover some holes.







Oh, whats that I have? These are the 7th Gen Celica(also found on MKIV Supras) Side markers that I bought a while back, they fit quite nicely and use the same bulbs too.







Now for the Door Panels and Power Folding mirrors...



That takes care of that.



Oh, almost forgot about that.



Ah, these will do...

I apologize for the lack of updates, my fellow 6GC members. I've been busy with a couple of assignments. However, I do have a couple of updates. My friend(the painter) says that I can take everything to his facility on Tuesday(December 2). After that, I'll show everyone the results as soon as its finished. So stay tuned! tongue.gif

Underground_Design has his painted pearl white as well. His pictures that show the pearl better are on Facebook though. Very fitting color for a Celica!

Pearl makes white interesting, that or a heavy metallic. Then again pearl and metallic makes every colour more interesting, just neutrals need it more.

Wow! Unbelievable! That paint reminds me of Satin White Pearl. A few months ago, I was considering either Blizzard Pearl or Satin White Pearl. I had a chance to look at two cars that had the colors that I had in mind, but it was in doors with too much light, so It gave me more time to decide which one I wanted to go for. It wasn't until when I saw a 2014 Toyota Avalon in Blizzard Pearl with the Sun shinning on the paint. Thanks to that car,(and Mother nature) I was hooked on Blizzard Pearl. laugh.gif
