First off, very nice looking celica, great job with her. You are probably going to be asked this anyway, so we will get it out of the way fast. What did you use for the big brake upgrade and the rack and pinion swap? I am guessing corolla stuff for the r&p swap?

Here is where i'm at with the door trim. I have run out of money so it will be some time before I get to finish them.

I need to get some loop pipe carpet and some more vinyl.

I like your door trims, very good looking! Where did you get that chrome strip and how did you fasten it to the vinyl?

The chrome strip is a stick on product from 3M chrome strips 6mm width. But the sticky backing is not enough you have to use super glue as well.

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?
