Sup guys, I've been posting here for a couple months trying to work out bugs with my ride. Well spring has finally sprung and I've started doing my thing to the Celi.
Here's the breakdown;

'95 GT Coupe, 5 speed, 14x,000 miles.

Traded it straight up for my Jeep, cost; $60
Needed new battery; $70
Water pump + timing belt replaced; $288
Ebay window tint [to be installed] $30
Ebay N1 black tip muffler [T.B.I] $30
Dropzone 2" coils + KYB GR2s [T.B.I]; $230
Paint & supplies...$20

Grand total so far including the car......drum roll......$728


Onto some pics of the transformation so far, and stay tuned, there's plenty more to come, including LOWAR, weight reduction, exhaust, music....








After wheel painting today, a little Niteshades, painted front lip and TRD decals.

I would like to add I'm keeping this car clean and mean, that's my style. I know I probably won't be very popular here because a lot of you are more into the fancy aspect. I just want people to see my car and be like "Damn, that looks like a sweet little race car"...Something like that. lol

It's actually getting basically the same treatment as my Jeep did. Blacked out and clean, except this time instead of a lift kit, it's getting an anti-lift kit.

Start.


End. [traded for Celi straight up, needed dem MPGs]

I hear you, lol MPG's is the reason I did not do the swap I wanted to do. I just did some routine up keep instead. lol

Your second pic on your first post is my favorite! Everything compliments eachother in it. The only real color in the pic is the yellow bridge sign & the lights. VERY NICE! thumbsup.gif
