I bought some rear spats from the K-turbo 6gc in MN, but I still have to repaint them. Going to get some front spats as well from funked. Nothing else power wise, unless I find myself a supercharger or 2gr... Then we in business. But winter is coming up and I got have a beater... So I might go get a rusty Celica take the beating for my summer daily.

Toua, I am glad to see the Celica went to such a good home! You've made great additions. I gotta say there is a special place in my heart for that car. Keep up the good work!!

Saw you on White Bear Ave turning on to 694W a couple months back. Very nice Celica as we don't seem these on the road as much anymore. The only thing that kind of looked out of place was the "V6" but it's not my car laugh.gif

Ha ha yes, I barely see any other cleans ones on the streets of MN. He he I'm still debating if I want to take that sign off but we'll see. I always enjoy hearing people talk about that sign when they see my car.

Long time no update. I haven't done too much to the car so there hasn't been anything big lately.
I did however get some new clear turn signals from Wolfie so I got those installed!
Also visited the junkyard the other day, found a ST Limited model and I took the emblem for the mirror cover.

Whelps links are being funny so I'll just link the album on the build: https://imgur.com/a/8hGqu

I was about to follow Wolfie's recommendation of adding a small black line to make it look OEM, but the adhesive in the turn signal cover was mixed w/ chrome paint so I ended up adding more adhesive into the cover as well as essentially covering the outer part of the lenses.

On the car, photo isn't the best.


I opted for the the whole "clear" lenses in the front and "red" lenses in the rear so match it up better. But the next thing I have to do is get all the lights to match, cause all three (headlight, high beams, and fog) emit different color lights.

On the side note, the mission for a daily (winter at least, year-round preferable) driver begins before snow and salt hits. Plus my right cv axle is clicking so I need to find a new ST185 axle. I want OEM but man is it kinda expensive, so maybe used OEM? Not sure if I trust any aftermarket one's so I might end up forking the money for a OEM one.
Also still waiting to see if Funked can still get me them front st202 TRD spats. Then come next year both front and rear spats will be painted and on! Thinking about upgrading the brakes to the Avalon dual piston as well, just for kicks.
