    Back to the roots :D

    Hey guys,

    Im finally back with a car im proud to have. I was on here had my te31 corolla 4 door. Traded it for a 85 Rx7 GSL-SE. And the other day made a nice trade to get back to basics and i was able to snag a 76 Celica GT i love this puppy.

    140k Original miles lots of paperwork and docs.

    Brand new ENKIE COMP's with new Falkens. 15x7

    The paint is pretty bad alot of oxidation and chips. A few TINY rust spots. But over all its very awesome. The interior is pretty beat as well But the Cluster and the gauges are all good Which makes me very happy.

    Cant wait to get the deck lip and front air dam as well as flares and paint it a nice forrest green

    me with my buddies 86


    The whipe

    Not a bad succession of trades. I was wondering why I haven't seen your corolla around on here. Nice Celica.

    Currently undergoing a TON of body work. Love it. Its come a long long way. Took it out last night after I finally got all the fiberglass body parts attached. Was a huge relief. Had people breaking necks the entire drive.

    This weekend the car is going in for more body work and final prep for primer. Then the following Wednesday its getting painted white again. The current paint job was sooooo bad I have no idea how it every passed as a paint job. So many runs. Previous owner issues. JESUS H CHRIS T.

    Cant wait to snap pics for you guys of the final product.






    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------THE NEXT STEP OF LIKE 2 WEEKS OF BODY WORK

    UPPPPPPDAAAAAAAAATTEEEE TIME


    Night just before she went in for surgery!!


    Slamming out some body work on the driver side. Shaved the lame marker lights that are on the front fender and rear quarter panel (both sides)


    Passenger side is about 90% done Just need to level out where we shaved the side marker lights that were basically just reflectors.


    Removed the side sails. They were plated in some crappy chrome like wrap shit. Pulled em scuffed em. Cleaned em. And now they are jet black.


    Doing the filler. on the markers


    more marker shaving and some hood action.


    Trunk. Just about there



    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- These next pics are from the first meet i was able to get the car out to.

    Well finally got the car out to its first meet! Griots garage in Tacoma, Wa they do drive in meets EVERY friday til the end of summer . Diff theme every friday but still everyone is welcome . Heres some pics a buddy of mine snapped .






    Thanks for peeking

    Fantastic! Nice find!

    Car looks terrific after all the work you did. Good job.

    I had a '77 GT liftback that I regularly miss. I daydream about getting another and swapping a 4AGE 20v
