Well guys, its been quite a while since i posted anything on here. The celica has had some progress done on it, but not as much i would want, but when money and time is on the low end its hard to get alot done. I think pictures speak better than words so here i go. (warning, pic heavy)

Pulled her out at the end of last winter, started right up after sitting for 6 months

Bodywork started

Image

Image

As you would expect found some rust, but not too bad, the car has been taken care of

Image

Fenders were a breeze, no rust, and only one dent

While the car kept being moved from garage to garage, i noticed that the water pump was leaking a bit. No replacements available, so had to modify a 13T-U pump, to make it fit the 2T-G without hitting the head.

And finally managed to get my hands on a stock hood, i hated that scoop on mine (but ill keep mine around, in case if any more cylinders end up under the hood)

Bought a set of ATS Classic's dirt cheap, but they seem way too narrow for my car

Image

And thought about a color change to subaru sti blue, looks good, but i stuck with my old color, turns out its a GM color
