Here's a thread to post whatever you've done to your car today, big or small, there's always something to do, but not always big enough for it's own thread smile.gif

Should be a good history of the work everyone does on their pride and joy smile.gif


I changed the oil in my rear diff and polished my car smile.gif
joesmith94celicagt
I've swapped the 94 GT engine out (276K miles) and mounted up a 96 GT engine (115K miles) and now stuck trying to make all the little connections...hung up on the igniter to distributor...anyone have pics of theirs they wouldn't mind sharing of this connection?
Spider77
Had plans to work on it, install "new" used sunvisors, shifter trim, and other interior parts. But it rained, so I just drove it around instead.
HectortheRican
Once again, I adjusted my low beams gaskets because the guy who sold me my 6gc didn't put on all the clips when he installed the HID kit.
Shigexile
stared at my celica and smiled... then i parked it reverse into the garage, then smiled a bit more from outside.
SwissFerdi
Got up, checked on her in the garage, then went to eat breakfast. Rode to the gym with my mom, walked back, walked past my car, and...that's about it. In an hour she'll get driven.

TRDGT4

enderswift
....... I parked the celi in my driveway. Washed it. clay bared it. polished it with some rubbing compound. applied back to black to all the plastic/rubber surfaces. washed it again. and waxed it. then I put on the finishing touch with a q-tip and a toothpick to get the extra dried wax out of those hard to reach places. After all that I rubbed my face all over the enormous dent in the rear fender. hit & run for the win...
kormysh8
changed thee oil and belts. and added a toyota emblem to the front : )
Zake
went to fix the "surface" rust on the rear 1/4 panel to find out it was rotted all the way through, so i put some bondo on and painted it (doesn't match too much) and will wait till i have money to have it fixed the right way.. (cut and weld in new metal)

Well, congratulations on selling, but couldn't you have waited until AFTER the meet? frown.gif

I also second the notion of admiring the car. I always do...never fail to look back after I park and say "Yup, that's my baby."
whatthe
Glass cleaner, cleaned rims and tyre shine. Oh yeh turned the damper 2 click harderrr
yarik83
lol I never said I sold it. I just said I gave it to someone for a week or so. You will see me at the meet in a celica and you shall see me in MY celica.

Right now I rented a kia to get me by for the next week

Awesome. Did you find your cat BTW? I've had a hell of a week with mine, he almost died from dehydration. He has a benign tumor in his thyroid. All under control now.
yarik83
after 6 days of sleepless nights, countless posters and walking 40 miles through natural preserve armed with a net I was awoken at 1am when the cat decided to come back at 1am. He sniffed his way back and although hungry, dirty and dusty... he is healthy and happy.

Sowwy to hear about your cat mate. Hope your vet gets your kitty back to its lazy state of healthy existence.
Batman722

Axel04
Put new ball joints, outter tie rod ends, sway bar bushings, and next new wheel bearing's, and maybe new springs to complete the front end if I have the money lol..
schmooot

cannot wait to see it with new paint biggrin.gif
Tom88
Neither can i, im still unsure of the colour.

I dont know if i should have it standard toyota red like before or go for something slightly deeper.

manphibian
hmmm tough decision! Red really suits the shape of the car, and the standard red is a nice deep glossy colour when it's shiny smile.gif

I've always thought the metallic RX-8 red is a fantastic colour....!
Tom88
You mean like this?



Thats a lovely colour but im worried if i go to dark the white wheels wont look so good...
manphibian
i think it would look ace, it's a similar shade to the original, but pearlescent when the sun is on it....

Whatever red you go for, it will look ace smile.gif
96bluevert
I cleaned out the interior of the Celica and put the OEM floor mats back in.

Good for you dude, I'm happy to hear that as well. I remember I was elated when mine came back after a week of being lost. Fatty's fine now, he's very skinny (down to 8.5 pounds), but he's eating and doing his business again. Anyway, get in chat sometime so we can quit effing up this thread.

And I drove my friend back to her house, and on the way back proceeded to try to burn off the rest of these Potenzas. As my tires are complete crap and need replacing, I'm going to be taking the tC wheels off when the rain season starts (probably now, so they might come off tonight depending on this week's weather report) and put the ol' steelies back on. tC wheels are getting a repaint. wink.gif
flyinglizard
Fixed the short in my jdm tails biggrin.gif
zfjohnson07

Zake

Tech-Nics
Washed my car for the 5th time in 3 weeks cause it gets dirty from particles in the air. Cleaned out my engine bay area with a wet/dry vac. Also my trunk and cabin. Then cleaned my rims and dried everything with a leather dry rag. Stared at him for about 5 minuets and then yelled at my wife for putting her finger prints on my car and wiped him down all over again. Then gently back my car ass first into the garage and watched the door close and then went and played some xbox 360.
