    79 celica (ra42)

    First post, been putting it off. Always loved the second gen celica. So rather then put the 22r-te i built into my truck I sold it and after looking for a while picked up this beaut. Came w boxes of parts and a like new interior.






    then i noticed the vale cover leaking so i cleaned up the vale cover for the hybrid build i was working on and cut and welded a shifter



    Didnt care for the chrome side pannels so used some trim black to clean up the look



    then picked up a first gen wing and started retrofiting it



    with that all in the works the brushed dash that was aging botherd me so i redid it. carbon anyone?



    That brings it up to date for the build. Ill update as I go. Any questions or comments/Ideas feel free to chime in.
