Hi Guys!

I have been 6GC on a while so I tought I should introduce my White Beauty! I bought my Celica in 2008 with fresh paintjob and 210k km in the clock. It was my first car. It was love at first sight. I was pleased with it for a long time, but I started to read 6GC forums and I got inspirated with most of your ride, so I wanted more...

List of planned mods:
-JDM tail lights (i think it's a must have mod for a Celi)
-OEM skirts
-SS-III rear splitters
-SS-III or Euro front lip (haven't decided yet)
-SPREE Led kit (full white kit)
-new rims (started to save money for some fancy wheels)
-JDM door sills

Here are the first pics after I bought her:





After I got her I removed the decals, and fixed some electrical problems. Installed sound system: Pioneer DEH-P6900 head unit, Infinity Reference speakers, JBL amp and JBL subwoofer. Then enjoyed to driving it...

A trip in Croatia:





In a meeting on a local track:







I bought some of the parts listed above, and waiting them to get things started...

the car looks clean mate, but the rims look out of place...

zoocsijr
Thank you! You're right...hopefully getting new rims soon, I am looking for some Rota Drift or Torque maybe.
zoocsijr
Parts came with post today...euro front lips, skirts, SS-III rear splitters, and a front sway bar. Can't wait to see them fitted!

Everytime i see a white celi so clean, it makes me regret getting black haha looks good!

off topic: My stepdad knows where you are haha he was born and raised in Budapest..
zoocsijr
First I wanted a black one but when i saw her in white I changed my mind! biggrin.gif Greeting to your stepdad Mate! laugh.gif
zoocsijr
Finally I got the euro front lips, OEM skirts and SS-III rears painted, and fitted. I am very pleased with the result. The car looks soo much better. laugh.gif biggrin.gif The weather wasn't too kind but I made some pics. Here are the result:










She is definitely needs JDM taillights:

Very nice car man, coming along very well smile.gif

I agree that the rims look out of place for the style of the car... But everything else looks mad smile.gif

Thank you! I agree with you! Next mod will be the rims...but hard to decide. My personal favourit is ADVAN RG-II, but I have to save some money for them. But I quite like Drag Wheels, especially DR-9, DR-25, and DR34 with polished lip and gunmetal finish. Opinions welcomed... tongue.gif

I like the DR34 in black on a white car... I always like black rims, showing a bit of the caliper when on a white car smile.gif
Gunmetal should look good too smile.gif
SwissFerdi
That is the exact splitter combination I would choose for my car, well done. Looks excellent. Those wheels look like Audi TT fat fives.
zoocsijr
Just a few more pics enjoying the good weather and the pleasure of driving... laugh.gif

JDM tails ASAP! The euro fronts look very good, they stick out just enough to stand right between subtle and notoceable.

Thank you! First I would change the wheels, but I hardly decide. I also look after a nice and affordable set of JDM tails. I hope they'll be on their way to Hungary soon! kindasad.gif
cheela
great progress so far. what kind of wheels are you looking to get?

Thank You! I'm thinking to buy a set of Drag DR9 in gold or gunmetal finish. Or I try to save a bit for a set of Rota Drift.
zoocsijr
I finally got my hands on a set of JDM tails. Luckily I found it here in Hungary so I don't need Ebaying one. One of a fellow Celica owner is making a track weapon from his gt4 and he don't need them any more. Sorry for pics, I made them with cell phone.






Syaoran
Nice!
zoocsijr
Nothing special. Just bored yesterday and made some proper pics from the JDM tails. And applied some decals that one of my friend made. To be correct my girlfriend applied them, she loves the Celi as much as I. biggrin.gif







Still can't decide about the wheels. I read the "Offical post your wheels" thread so many times. I always end up on the Drag DR-9 bronze or gunmetal finish with machined lip. Almost looks like Volk CE28n but reasonable price.
zoocsijr
Nothing special, just got some time today, so I gave her a wash and went out with my camera, and made some pics...I still need to improve my photo skills, but here are the results. tongue.gif













I'm still saving for the wheels and a set of coilovers. Hope I can order them soon... biggrin.gif
nstrudwick
WOW!

I need to colour code my euro splitters after seeing this.. Looks great mate! Some lovely photo's... bowdown.gif
richee3
I just noticed you don't have the black covers over the support bars in your grill. Nice pics though. smile.gif
zoocsijr
Thank you Guys! I really appreciate your replies! tongue.gif I hit a cat last year (there are so many crazy cats and deers over here naahh... laugh.gif ) so I had a crack on the front that I have had to fix and it's ended up like this. rolleyes.gif
zoocsijr
Got some packages by the post. Just some detailing in the interior. A new shift knob and TOM'S shoulder pads. tongue.gif I also fixed my armrest, because it was broken. Made some interior shots.







The interior is almost stock, except the OMP steering wheel, and the sparco pedals. I have to reupholster the steering wheel, but other things first...
New set of wheels ordered, they will be arrive soon. Can't wait. laugh.gif biggrin.gif

Hehh I don't know, but it's comfortable to change gears! laugh.gif

I stayed at my first toughts and ordered a set of DRAG DR-9 in gold finish with machined lip. I wanted bronze but the dealer told me they don't have in stock so he gave me a little discount on the golds, and if I don't like them I can custom paint them. laugh.gif biggrin.gif
JoshuaM

Sounds good - I preferred the gold anyway!!! tongue.gif

Looking forward to seeing them on smile.gif
zoocsijr
Just a quick snap. I have the car about 6 years now but everytime I left it somewhere I take a glance back, and have the feeling "dammn how beautiful". tongue.gif



Still waiting for my wheels, as lons as can take my hands on them I made some engine bay detailing, and installed front strut brace.
zoocsijr
We had some free time on weekend with my girlfriend so we deccided to have a road trip. I planned it a while, finally both of us was free, the weather was nice, the Celi was full on gas...

It was a 700 km (430 mile) drive around the lake Balaton, and across the middle of the country. Beautiful places, nice wiew, hills and winding roads, so we had a great time. biggrin.gif



Here are some pics. Unfortunately my girlfriend left the DSLR at home so I made it with phone. laugh.gif







The most beautiful asses of the world:

















The Celi went well, it was fun and joy to drive it around the hills, so it really deserved a proper wash... biggrin.gif

zoocsijr
I noticed soo much brake dust on my rears, I think I should do something whith the brakes to upgrade them, maybe some slotted or drilled rotors... tongue.gif
zoocsijr
Today I had a little maintenance on the Celi. Changed the oil and filters. New bushings all around and new rear wheel bearings. Also installed my front strut bar. I painted it myself to white I quite satisfied with the result. biggrin.gif

Just like in a proffesional body shop.. laugh.gif



And guess what arrived yesterday... owned.gif



I'll put on the tires ASAP...cant't wait to see them on the Celi. biggrin.gif laugh.gif
Malek
Lookin great!

Those Lake Balaton pictures are thumbsup.gif

This one! biggrin.gif Looks like a nice trip smile.gif

And I am very happy you got silver wheels.... But didn't you order gold ones? tongue.gif
zoocsijr
New wheels are on... biggrin.gif



JoshuaM
Niiiiiice! smile.gif But you need some spacers on the back at least tongue.gif

Thank You Joshua! You were right I ordered them in gold finish but I got another call from the dealer, they only have these on black and silver finish. It was a bit embarrassing, but now I see them fitted and I think they looks well! biggrin.gif

A picture from the front:



The old wheels were 7.5x17 ET32, these are 8x17 ET45, I thinking of 20 mm spacers, would it fit right?
zoocsijr
Some new pics... laugh.gif

I've never posted my engine bay, so... nothing special just a poor 7AFE, strut bar, trd oil cap and trd radiator cap. It runs well, just a bit low on power. tongue.gif laugh.gif




Some autumn pics... biggrin.gif













zoocsijr
Hello Everybody! Haven't been here a while. Nothing minor changes because I didn't had much time for the Celi. It almost has 300k km in the clock, next year she will be 20 years old, and the car drives fine. Only had to change the rear brake discs and pads, and the coilovers, also had to change the windshield because I hit a huge pothole about 120km/h and the glass cracked. kindasad.gif tongue.gif

On this summer one of my friends came to my help and painted the rims white, the lips left to machined. I love white on white. I also ordered a set of volk lug nuts i like them very much. Still need spacer or new set of wheels... biggrin.gif









Almost forget I had my wedding this summer and guess what was the bride's car: biggrin.gif





And some autumn pictures:









There are some future plans for the winter:

-TRD rear splitters
-facelift front bumber and SS-III lips
-SPREE led kit
-upholster my OMP steering wheel
-spacers or another set of wheels

I'm not sure in this mods and not sure to invest more to the Celi, I'm thinking to get an MR2 SW20 turbo as a new toy. This going to be a long winter... biggrin.gif


cheela
wow! white on white. looks great.
you've done a great job keeping it clean. smile.gif

oh and congrats on the wedding. smile.gif

The Celica looks nice. If you can afford it, go for the second RWD car - it is a great luxury. FWD for relaxed DD'ing, RWD fun when you want it.


zoocsijr
Hi mates! I had to update my progression. This year a refurbished the steering wheel and scored a set of new wheels. woot.gif



I bought a set of Rays Volk Racing C-Ultras. I always loved the three spoke desing. After a good polish and some gunmetal finish they look just as new. Can't believe these wheels have been made in 1995, in the same year as the car. laugh.gif
Added new 215/40r17 tires and 25mm spacers all around and here is the result...

I absolutely love it!
