So after probably 4/5years since I last owned a 6gc I went looking for another, I wanted a little project, so I went on the search, in the UK there isn't a huge amount of Celicas with the 3sge engine in like there was 4/5 years ago.

So I found this:

I got it quite cheap but it does need a few jobs doing to it, first thing I done was remove that massive Hiro spoiler which to be honest didn't look that good. The car currently looks like this:

The cars current spec is:
3sge motor
HKS Manifold
HKS Downpipe
HKS Hi Power Silent Exhaust
18" White 5 spokes
GT4 Bonnet
GT4 Front Bumper
Short shifter.

Im not keen on the white 5 spokes so I bought a set of these to replace them with:

I think they will suit the car a lot better.

Its not really road worthy at the moment, the front brakes are shot and the front wheel bearings are gone so for now my daily is my R34 GTT:

Things to come for the celica:

First Job new brakes allround and new bearings so I can at least use the car!
Remove the GT4 bumper and Bonnet and replace with OEM bonnet and facelift bumper.
TOMS front lip
SS3 sideskirts
SS3 rear spats
Duckbill spoiler
Lowered suspension (already sorted)
late spec rear lights
projector headlights
and generally tidy up the bodywork

More pictures and updates to come as they happen.

A little update,

JDM Rears have been ordered
Eibach Lowering Springs are ordered
TOM's Front Lip Ordered

I put the RSGT's on the car and I don't think they look all that nice to be honest so...change of plan, paint the white wheels bronze and put those back on.

I needed quite a few panels for the celica, facelift bumper, bonnet, 2 new front wings as mine have holes in them and dents etc, the lower edge of the doors have rust on them so need the doors sorting aswell.

So I have managed to find an Astral black 1.8 SR for next to nothing and the bodywork is excellent all the parts I need ill simply take off and break the rest of the car.

Pictures to follow soon.
