What a great find! I got a 1994 from behind my neighbor's house for $300 back in 2008. it had a bad clutch and a couple other problems. it wasn't too hard to drop the transmission and change the clutch.
I drove the car until 2014 when a pizza delivery driver rear-ended me and totaled it. I used the insurance money to buy another one with a 3SGTE but I'd always wanted to fix the old one. Now I'm parting it out and junking it (see post on for sale area).

Do you want a black carpet in good shape, stored inside for the last 3 years? I'll sell it to you cheap.

I've got a bunch of other parts and plastics, wires, etc. if you need anything.

thanks! and that sucks about you celi but glad u got another one.
I've always wanted black carpet and somehow ended up with 4 celicas that ALL have tan interior... it's so weird.
since this carpet is really junky, I'm gonna try something first. I'm gonna clean it as best as i can and then try dyeing it to see how it turns out. if I like it, I'll do all my other celicas. hahaha but if not, i might hit u up for it.

Man good updates so far! I'd be so scared to pull my interior apart like that but since it's so dirty guess it's gotta be done.
That's funny you mention about wanting black interior as that's what Colin actually did when he had the Celica (interior was originally tan too).
I'd say it is much cleaner and doesn't get as "dirty," but there's an appeal to tan interior too though lol.

lol, nah, it isn't too bad once you've done it enough. I probably stripped this in an hour or so given that it was raining and cold and i took my time.basically just seats, door sill panels, center console, visors, mirror, carpet, and headliner.

tan interiors make it look a bit brighter and looks a bit nicer but is hard to keep clean and my carpets are 20+ years old so it's not one shade of tan anymore. I'm gonna try my hand at dyeing it vs spraying it. I haven't heard too much good things about spraying carpet as it tends to stiffen up the fibers. we'll see how the dye goes when i do it.

so a few weeks ago, I decided to throw my extra set of JDM tails onto the freelica.
the stock one on the pass. side was hit and cracked and I didn't want more moisture and snow getting into it as it's sitting outside.
started taking it off and as soon as I took off the bolts, it literally fell apart in my hands. was held on by sheer willpower only.





after installing the JDM tails, I noticed how misaligned everything is on that side. will have to get the good ol sledge hammer out in the summer and mold it back into shape but the de-ambered JDM tails look really good on a black celi. smile.gif

Truthfully a torch is my favorite tool, but an array of sledgehammers comes in a close second.
