05-11-2009, 05:29 AM
me likey the black/grey seats. Definitely my kind of interior.

85gtsblackman
05-11-2009, 06:56 AM
thanks


the covers are leather like but fit the seats tight but they hold your body well, you dont slide around or nothing, plus they were only 5 dollars each

kinda a bitch to put on though, i wanted to tuck them between the plastic sides on the seats so i had to unbolt the damn seats to put the covers on the right way

as im trying to finish my gts things i need/want for this car keep poping up cheap

but i miss rwd

85gtsblackman
05-13-2009, 09:40 AM
ive run into a snag, seems the battery is blown (leaking and sides are swollen) btw its a toyota battery but its the true-2 those suck

also i have no spark on the #2 cylinder

85gtsblackman
05-19-2009, 08:44 AM
installed things for my "budget stereo version 2"

50 dollar alpine from craigslist, normally im a jvc guy but i couldnt pass this up
10 dollar barely used not old pioneer 6.5 4 ways (junkyard find), these need and will be amped later on. i put these in the rear for now.
free univeral radio pocket , thanks to TNT
6 dollar walmart harness adapter.

on one of my off days i have a set of pheonix gold octane r 6.5 componets that i bought 3 years ago and ever used, im going to try and put them in the doors.


later on ill get a amp kit and wire up the 4 ch kenwood amp i got to all 4 speakers

85gtsblackman
05-20-2009, 06:25 AM
i was stupid and had a ground wire attached to the rear strut bolt on the gts, this normally works on a regular factory coilover rear set up but the gts dont have that in the rear so it didnt ground properly.


got my passenger side high and low beams shipped to my door today. but the guy forgot to send the rubber rings for the lights.

going to the junkyard with a poncho tomarrow

TNT
05-26-2009, 08:20 PM

85gtsblackman
05-30-2009, 05:44 AM
shit list has gotten smaller but ive found new lil things along the way

driver cv axle boot is shot, fucking fwd
driver front wheel is bent to 3 hells and back, i gotta hurry up and finish my gt wheels with good tires.
when i get the condenser and the compressor i can do my front end swap as well and i have all the lights and working a/c
ended up needing 3 lights instead of 1, passenger side low beam has no mounting tabs and is held in by wire atm, passenger high is missing, driver high has broken mounting tabs. so 120 dollars later i have all 3
passenger side seat beat was acting funny, unplugged the electrical conector cause the noise was driving me crazy
driver side front wheel studs are almost fubar.
floppy mirrors
valve cover gasket set, seafoaming, and desludge the intake will probally be done this comming week

so thats where i be

85gtsblackman
06-12-2009, 09:12 AM
atm the car is being dubbed "black cherry"

anywho today picked up a condensor and compressor but forgot to grab the belt, so today before work im going to try and get the belts, pag oil for the a/c, and put on the bumper and the 3 good lights i have sitting around

also i got some nice 9005 napa tru veiw bulbs that im going to use for the 9005 low beam bulb mod, i did this to my rolla with standard bulbs and they worked fine but had hella better light output.

so in short before work im going to try installing....
condensor
compressor
front bumper
pass side lights and driver high beam
bulbs
belts

ill post pics later if i get done

85gtsblackman
06-13-2009, 09:30 AM

hood still needs to be aligned, me and tyler (tnt) kinda just threw it on a month back and i still havent gotten around to adjusting it. oh and all the white spots on the bumper are from bugs taking off paint.

85gtsblackman

Cool budget project, looks like a lot of hard work already done.
Kinda like the black front and bonnet look too

85gtsblackman
06-13-2009, 10:05 AM
i have debated getting the other fender and just leaving it with a black nose

but my buddy that works at a dealership body shop said he will paint the whole front end and fix some other issues for 150 dollars

the front end cost look like this so far

hood 75
fender 55
bumper 50
condenser 55
radiator w/ fans 50
driver high 35 local yard
passenger high and low from 6gc 80 shipped


napa lazer blue bulbs 22

the rad support is still slightly tweeked but its close enough that im not going to worry about it.

the high beam and bumper upper support needs to be pulled forward on the passenger side about 2 inches, i will eventally do this with a hand winch

Ryan
06-13-2009, 04:23 PM
Looking good man, did you get the wheel off ebay? How much was it?

85gtsblackman
06-14-2009, 06:30 PM
25 shipped new ebay

but finding an adapter was a bitch. i had got one from ebay for 10 dollars for the adaper for just the wheel, but not the base that mounted onto the shaft. i had to get it from pepboys. but i have no signal cancel now. and it took me 3 weeks to figure out the right adapter.

im trying to fig out a way to mod the clock spring housing to work with the aftermarket set up.

85gtsblackman
06-15-2009, 08:12 PM
condensor is in place but im trying my hardest not to have to replace the rad support so im going to have to slot the exesting holes for the top mounting studs.

still trying to alighn the front, its really close but i still have a gap where the hood sits next to the fender on the pass side. upon looking down the dide of the car i can tell the fender needs to be moved in about 2mm and the hood needs to come over a few mm as well and then all should be even

06-20-2009, 08:19 AM
thanks homie

talked to a buddy that works at coggin paint and body (big dealership body shop) said he would paint the whole nose and fix this bondo crack i got for 100 bucks, i might ask him if i throw him another 100 would he do the whole car

next on the todo list after the a/c is cv axles and get my gt rims sandblasted so i can paint them.

so seems like if i spend another 500 dollars ill pretty much be done, sweet.

85gtsblackman
07-09-2009, 08:50 PM

07-10-2009, 03:19 AM
wow thats good, the ones on craigslist that were posted every so often?

ive debated putting 7th gen seats in the 6th gen but the 6th gen seats are actally really comphy and the covers i put on have padding as well.

85gtsblackman
07-10-2009, 07:17 AM

Trance4c
07-10-2009, 03:32 PM

debating finding some 225/50/15s for the rims

7/14/09

heres where im at now

-i should have the wheels done by the end of the week
-possible seafoam by thursday
-going to have to pull the radiator and front bumper to alighn and install condensor
-i need to get a good 6 spoke wheel to replace the bent one, and im going to sell the set to a buddy with tires and in turn ill buy a set of falken 912 225/50/15's
- getting a free 90-91 celica gt wheel as a spare, this beats going to the junkyard for a steelie
-hopefully replacing both cv axles by the 1st week of next month.
- install header to stock exaust for now, i like having 1 quiet car

after all this im going to be done for awhile because i need to get my truck and gts going and i may be getting a whole low milage rebulit engine for the gts for 250 from a friend

then all that will be left is paint and shocks for the stx

7/26/09

7/30/09

a/c works better than ever, blowing at a steady 39 degrees

got 2 kumho tires i had laying around that were practacally new installed

since the last time i posted what i fixed

both cv axles

No worries Joe. Whenever you can is when you can. I'm pretty sure from the pics that's the spoiler I'm looking for though, so yeah, when you can, that's awesome. Cars lookin good, but you need to get some more miles on it. My 7th gen is already almost caught up with you, and far from "puttin along". Lol she still screams like a banshee!

85gtsblackman

they arent really "sunk in" that much. if i put spacers on they would be almost flush or poke out.

if this wasnt my daily/beater id lower it more.

edit i see what u mean arron, i think when i snapped the pics the rear quarter of the car was closer to me than the nose, uneven shot was taken

85gtsblackman
07-03-2010, 04:28 AM
nah i blocked mine off, and bypassed the code

kinda up in the air about the car atm, dont need much cept paint and will need 2 rear tires in a few months but im kinda wanting to find a 92-96 camry as a daily. if i can get my lil bro to figure out how to drive a stick he may get this car.

85gtsblackman
08-04-2010, 01:30 PM
decided to keep it, for now

new list:

install fogs
mod front bumper
paint calipers and brakets (they rusted)
rewire horn
install my cai i have laying around
install the muffler i have laying around and try to find a big resonator
replace inner and outter tie rods
replace washer nozzles,
replace the 2 rear tires, probally by the next few weeks
trying to locate a 2nd tiburon sub box so i can have 2 10's

before the end of the year and/or by tax season:

retint
buy set of centercaps, i found em but they are 60 dollars shipped
replace rear bumper
fix bondo crack
repaint
replace front shocks with gr-2 or bilsteins

after all this the car will pretty much be done granted nothing happens to it.

85gtsblackman

something happened to it

well i think the spindle/hub is wore out cause ive replaced the wheel bearing on the passenger side twice and its bad again after about 5000 miles so im going to go get a used hub with little to no play in it, get a new bearing installed, and hope that one doesnt wear out.

i may put my fogs on today and order a small remote horn button

also got the thing dialed in to have power, not ping and run on regular, thats right it had a strange issue where if i didnt run 93 id ping even with the timing almost stock, but stock had no power.

now im off to get a spindle and get my 4 tires mounted

Sucks about the hub, but atleast you fixed the motor issue. Nice work so far. Seems like your list is not too far off from completion.

85gtsblackman
10-16-2010, 09:39 AM
thanks man, yeah its slowly but surely comming along, i would have been done and had the car new looking if it wasnt for me ordering parts for the gts and my truck.

i finally got around to putting my CAI on today, i couldnt find a hub intime so for now ive pressed in a new napa bearing and i can actally feel the differnce it made. The new tires all the way around added a nice touch as well.

Also i got a quote today of 550-650 dollars to get it paint and all the bodywork fixed so ill save up to do that here in the near future. Shes comming along and has been a good car the last 41,000 miles ive put on her.

85gtsblackman
01-14-2011, 01:15 PM
well nothing major has happened do to me focusing on my other 2 projects lately. i finally replaced that spindle that kept eating bearings

ill try to get my aftermarket fogs mounted today and i may get that muffler put on. I put 2 infinity kapa perfects in the trunk and powering it with a 1100 watt sony amp i got for 50 bucks. Its decent. I like JL audio and Audiobaugh better though. But the set up i just mentioned cost me around 100 bucks so i cant beat that.

oh and since my gabrials dont really dampen, at all, im going to take them back to autobone and order bilsteins

85gtsblackman
01-24-2011, 03:48 AM
tires are fubar on my 16''s 1 is bald, 1 has ok tread, 1 is oversized and doesnt balance well, one is flat spotted

my bbs 15s i sold

luckily i still have the gt 5 spoke wheels i got awhile back for 40 dollars , i just need to finish refinishing 2 of them. Also i have 2 good 205/55/15s and found another 2 for 120 shipped new as opposed to 360 for 4 of the 16s shipped. ill just ride the 5 spokes till tax time

85gtsblackman
02-06-2011, 07:45 PM
due to trying to save money for a paint job and my 22r build i spent 41 dollars on some 16x6 1/2 steel wheels w/ 205/55/16's that were on a tc but i think the probally on a vibe or matrix

probally roll these till i get my taxes then ill put the alloys back on with some good rubber or find some 17's for a good price

85gtsblackman
02-28-2011, 03:52 AM

i guess ill show it some love by adding some non flat tires to the wheels, and painting the sob now that i can afford to.

hmm all red or leave the hood black

as for the wheels all they are are later wrx 17s shot black, i dunno if im going to paint em a differnt color or not, im thinkin gun metal if i do.

85gtsblackman
03-06-2011, 02:50 AM
so unless i find a 92-94 240sx hatch cheap, im up in the air on what to paint it, for simplicity sake ill probally paint it a darker red. the wheels im still up in the air as well, rather to leave them black or shoot em silver, or shoot em chrome.

03-06-2011, 03:52 AM
I'd say that you should just respray your OEM color and leave the wheels black. Does the car have a pinstripe? If it does, get rid of it.

well since i enjoy the dam car and cause it handles like a go kart, not as good as the 3rd gen but still damn good, i guess ill throw some money into the body, exaust,and retint the windows. along with getting a set of tires for my 17s. I may also get a differnt front bumper, find some trd side skirts, and rear splitters or lip if i can find one for a coupe.

ill be slowly gathering stuff over the next 6weeks then off to the paintshop.

and i need spacers for the subie wheels cause they clear the brakes but are hella sunk in

looks like your header panel is bent in a little too, hope you don't have frame damage, I don't know how the celica's handle front end damage, but I've tried to save a few other cars that were in small accidents and ended up having bent frames.

its not as bad as it looks, atm if i were to paint it and do some very minor body work myself you would never notice
