I do agree that the tan carpet looks a bit better, maybe because its brighter and when clean looks nicer. but I don't like the tan seats, they just look too bland for a celica. a nice set of recaros would be awesome but that would blow the budget for ANYTHING hahaha. perhaps I'll do some funky racing seats from fleabay.

Exactly.
I wouldn't do race seats, to uncomfortable & hard to get in & out of for a daily.
Just find some nice clean ones & throw em in.

That, especially cheapo eBay special racing seats. Corbeau is as cheap as I'd go for racing seats, preferably Recaro or Bride. Might look into doing some 7th gen seats.

lol, yeah again, I'm not breaking the budget for this thing. I already my other 3 projects for that. lol and already have 7th gens in my green one.... although if i get a nice set of bride or recaros for that one, i COULD throw the 7th gens in the freelica.... hmm....

so it's getting colder and the freelica is just sitting in a carport so I have no motivation to change the clutch at this time unless it can be in the 70s again. It's gonna have to sit for a while.

but I decided to do some projects that could be done indoors. Took the seats apart and swapped my old seats from my green one to these rails. but no before cleaning them up. Didn't realize they were this dirty.

ammonia is great for taking stains out and i luckily had some on hand.


mixed it in with some detergent and sprayed away.








not bad.




comparison of the two, one clean and one not.










before


after


now my butt will be happy sitting in them again.

current state of freelica. stripped and waiting.







seats were taken per previous post, carpet is out and will be cleaned and dyed black. headliner also taken out to clean, deodorize and possibly reupholster.
when pulling the carpet... it felt soaked under the drivers seat and rear. frown.gif not sure if it was soda or oil or something but its not good. caused the soundproofing to unstick from the floor and pop right off. gonna have to give the floor a good clean. after moving all the fabric out though, the celi smells alot better. lol

Nope. That'll either be the ST185 Racecar, or I'll need to steal one of your 1st gens for a UZ swap.

I could be persuaded to give up the 1st gen coupe. wink.gif...

but until I get a garage put up, I have no room for it. it's stuck at my parent's house and i'm sure they're sick of lookin at it. lol
