Haha I know what you mean, but every time I get in my friends F20 powered Corolla I start having second thoughts lol.

Anyway no real updates yet but have been working on the car since I got back from JCCS, hopefully should have some more progress in the next week. Was online and came across this, not sure where to put it so throwing it up here to share with everyone. I doubt I can afford it, but do want every single part on there haha.

Time to tackle some of those problematic areas I've been dreading. Starting with the vents by the windshield, had to take take out just the right amount and hope for no surprises:

I can't find the pics from before, but moving to the rear window there was some light rust around the base. And much like with the front had to take out just the right amount.
Image
Image

Also wanted to revisit the trunk area starting with the actual trunk. Much like the doors wasn't too bad aside from rot along one edge
Image
Image
Image

But did have to revisit the area along the edge of the trunk
Image

The next area has become a never ending battle since these little guys keep popping up. Some areas like the roof are far more tricky and require ALOT of patience. Others like along the floor won't be so bad if I ever get a chance to get to them.

Once the tiny pinholes are finished up I'll finally get to start on the interior so fingers crossed.

This is the right way in doing a resto to a 72 celica..I have seen a couple with either a 2TG or an 18RG, recently there was one with a 4AGE Silvertop engine

It's been a while since I've posted any progress on the car, been working on in free time and it has been quite the learning experience. So gonna just throw up some crappy pics of the progress so far. First off finished the exterior rust for the most part and tackled the interior:
Image
Image
Image
Image

Threw on the wheels & tires to get it on all four
Image
Image
Image

Old hood was in pretty rough shape so got this
Image
Image

Started my way from the back towards the front
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

And on to test fitting the engine
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Very excited to keep it moving at this point and think there's sufficient motivation to actually get this done by the summer :)

Both my celica's need this kind of love. I'm definitely going to do it with my '81. my 76 may stay the way its looking Ill start having fun at a local track for drifting but that's yet to be determined. Only time will tell.
