Those new items are not my taste as the custom chairs but further a nice celica. How is the steering rack and pinion performing compared to the stock version?

The rack and pinion is so much better, a lot more precise. no more slack.

Ah thanks. Maybe my carina wich is not getting a lot of attention here from JNC forum will be converted to rack & pinion also in time.

Have the old steering housing and ball bearing surfaces refurbished and adjusted, it feels very tight now when wheels are in driving position.
Slack happens indeed in R or L steering. We'll see :)

Oh and i do al lot myself too, mof allmost everything such as the new vinyl on chairs/dashpad/rear window trim and more.

Good luck with further steps on your Celica!

I fixed the seat in the Celica. I pulled the cover off the top of the seat and glued more foam in to bulk it out. Now the cover fits tightly over the seat and looks like the other one.

The other day I started work on the seat belts to tidy them up and make a box around them, when disaster struck, I smashed the plastic cover on the side that holds the coiled spring in place. In other words the seat belts are now in the bin and can't be fixed.
But then something good, my bro was coming to town and he said I could have the seat belts out of the Honda Integra that he has wrecked. So I am in the process of making them fit and making a box that will fit nicely around them.

I got the Integra seat belts of my brother the other day, I unstitched the bottom bracket and took all the Honda brackets and clips off the belt then put all the toyota stuff back on. Then stitch the bottom back up, Hay presto working seat belt again. Just making the cover to go over the top of the body of the retrackable part then they are finished.

I decided to put the rear panhard rod In this morning, but as usual something f*#ked up. The panhard rod on the diff end needs the shaft that runs through the original bush, so I started to push it out but it was bullshit tight. I did get it out but is now destroyed, so I have to get a new one made, up just more money I don't have!!!! Also in the process I smash the hammer into my hand, Should have stay inside.

I went back up to the shed to have a look at the shaft and decided it wasn't that bad after all. I straightened It up and sanded the edges off and it slipped into the heim joint hole. So I bolted the panhard rod up to the car. The diff is now centered, but there is no more adjustment so that was lucky. But there is a problem, the rod hits the back of the diff housing if I go over a decent bump. I will have to space out the diff mount so it sits out a bit more.

So my 4 link control arms from T3 came yesterday, and today I have put them in the car. What a difference, The car feels so much more controlable, and planted on the road. The noise of the diff and the road are a little more than normal. Overall, very happy with them. The only thing now is to put better tyres on with stiffer side walls. My cheap ones that are on the car now are all over the place.
