ok guys a small update for you, I dont know where to start lol

I guess I should start by listing what ive actually done over the last few months.

The spoiler as chris says isnt the right colour match, it turns out my car is a khaki black not just black. So one of the first things I did was source another spoiler to go onto my original one. Mine being an import has a brake light in it so I want to keep it. This is in the body shop as we speak being made and sprayed the correct color lol the same for the bumper as pictured earleir on in this thread.

Ill list the rest of whats going on as its far easier.

1. Rockercover gasket replaced, along with new bolts to hold it down (celicas are known for coming loose)
2. Oil and filter change
3. Water system flush.
4. Powersteering flush.
5. Brakepads replaced front and rear along with brake fluid flush and bleed.
6. Driveshaft gaitor replaced.
7. Few rubber pipes replaced.
8. New air filter and spark plugs.
9. New dizzy cap and rotory arm (oil was leaking into it from the gasket leak)
10. New headunit.
11. New door speakers.
12. Various amps.
14. Various subs.
15. Clear front indicators
16. Blue led dials.
17. Japanese flare - mine is a jdm model so allready had the holder for it.
18. Red kerb lights (i been getting lessons from chris)
19. Repaired spare wheel.
20. M.O.T passed with 1 minor Very Happy
21. Gear nob replaced.
22. Sunstrip.
23. New battery.
24. change headlight bulbs
24. check the pictures lol

Ill add pictures in no order and talk a little about each one.

This amp went from this to this Very Happy I sprayed it myself then added a couple of jdm stickers







I also brought various subs amps and a bluetooth alpine stereo









added magnets to my rearveiw mirror so now it acts liek a mount for ..... tadaaaa



some led mods , this will make chris proud Smile










now for some random stuff

jdm flare (still live)



headlight bulbs changed







mods on thier way, change of colour scheme as i was going to do black and white but am now going down the black and red interior look. Steering wheel is in post and im still looking for some wheels Smile the audio is a work in progress i still have lots to do but now mot is out of the way i can crack on Smile will also be doing some stuff to the engine to make it look a bit nicer Smile

Hey, I'm loving those wheels&centercaps, plus the new sig!

Only reason I say to smoke the reflector is so that it matches the tails Cool

I agree mate the reflector would look better matching, either way all smoked or unsmoked will look good.

i have but tbh not much will fit and everything with gt4 written in the title seems a lot more expensive. I do like the bonnets but the problem ive got is that he colour of my car is khaki black which is an import colour so if i was to do this id have to get bonnet sprayed and same time spare bonnet wont fit in the back so catch 22 really Sad

That's a great price! It looks like a fun project - and I like that color combination with the wheels! I wanted to do something like that too but never got to it
