I will introduce myself now too.

I'm from Vaals (The Netherlands) near Aachen (Germany)
I drive a Celica ST182 from 1991 in red

I will first post a couple of pictures and then i will tell you what i'm still willing to do.

It started about 3 years ago:

http://lh4.ggpht.com/eric.gerbers/RvgJ6m6VOmI/AAAAAAAABmI/y8OTjZpjltY/s400/IMG00069.JPG

In the meantime a damage (my fault) and a scratch from the driverdoor to the back came to it. The last owner before me made something too. )-;

Until now i have made some changes already

US-Sidemarkers in the frond and the rear (in the back i still have to put the bulbs in)

http://lh3.ggpht.com/eric.gerbers/SNyCl0xnBvI/AAAAAAAAD9w/mp9b4MHbfl4/s400/IMG_0057.jpg

http://lh4.ggpht.com/eric.gerbers/SPskXD0MpvI/AAAAAAAAEBA/68wGLRDZYEs/s400/PICT4023.JPG

It's a little bit dirty, but i will give it a wash soon again ;-)

http://lh4.ggpht.com/eric.gerbers/SICRFi9JyuI/AAAAAAAADk0/awpz6IY4hjM/s400/PICT3837.JPG

I will exchange the front leftside over the rims (because of the crack)
And the middle part of the exhaust will be exchanged.
The driver and passengerseat will be exchanged and HID will be build in.
A GT4 Bumper needs to be repaired and then i can put it on.

http://lh6.ggpht.com/eric.gerbers/SP4yU6JMW1I/AAAAAAAAEEM/O_KHrf0LmDs/s400/bumper.jpg

The little widows will be exchanged an will get tainted

I'm not a fan of the orange rear lights. But i have clear sidemarkers and clear corners.

What are you looking for in terms of USDM parts? I can probably find you some for pretty cheap.

Would you happen to know how to get ahold of the REAR clear bumper lights? The turn signals? The ones that the glass matches the Euro corners, rather than just being clear with four ridges across them?

Ryan

Ya, i am sure that me and ben (ciento) can get you whatever you want as far as usdm parts..

See the clear lights on the bumper? I want those. I have ambers that go there that i'll trade. :) They'll match your USDM corners.

NO!! ;-) you robbed us.
but i can check for you if i can score you some turnsignals. And i will check what it would cost to ship. Will check this evening

And i can't check the ebay-offer. But could it be that there are a bit brighter of color, so not brown-yellow als OEM but more orange-yellow?

Yeah, it's the ones that Extremeskillz has. They're the same exact color as your USDM corners.

Straight trade? :)

yes!! Good guess ;-)

the thing you think is a highflow cat, is a twister... They say the sound gets cooler ;-) and because of the twist, the airflow would get better. I'm just going to test it ;-)

Ahh, IC... hmm.. hope it works for you. I have never seen speaker covers like those....

The pipes have a diameter of approx 4" (10 cm)

So it will be dual exit? Looks sweet will look sick on the car (I am assuming the piping goes up under the body/bumper out of sight) Also is that an assembly - it actually looks like a decent layout.

Nice progress - never seen your build before looks awesome - you crazy Europeans - liking our USDM stylings.
