THIS HERES MY PROJECT NAMED FLATLINER......

i wanted you guys on here to know somewhat the history and shyt I've been through.

so my grandmother dies.........DEC. 08'......and my mother inherits a sweet looking 1987 celica st.....with 37,342 miles (original)........brings it all the way back here to Oregon from Ohio.

sry don't have any pics from then......wasn't much of a picture taker....

so my mom gives me the car with 42,203 miles....just gives me IT!.....im like sweet......

just picture this......no scrapes and no rust..(except on one fender) and pretty straight.

i go to Salem one night and i blew the head gasket and cracked the head....messed up rite....so after 1700 dollars work....(didn't have time myself and also the know how)....

so shes running just fine......just fine............till i look down to make sure my CD is gonna make it into the slot.


BOOM!


then this.................!!!!

terrible huh!....i was only doing about 25-30 mph, totaled for the damage was about 7,000.

BUT THE MOTOR WAS UNDAMAGED.

so i went home and went to craigslist and almost immediately i see the same year and color...also and auto only difference was it was a gt and a hatch........so i went out the next day and took a look to see how similar they really were........

so i paid 400 bucks for a running gt...needed a couple of things...like a rad and a water pump......i ran it on the freeway and maintained it for about three exits before blowing the rad to pieces..(had small crack).

so i swapped in the motor as soon as i got it home...(sry no pics)....and i now have 70,500 miles on the body.............i swapped everything from the suspension to the interior ...lower dash and carpet. i should've kept a bunch more stuff but i didn't have the room.

That's actually a really bad ass car.

Did you swap the gauge cluster to the new car?

Did you swap the gauge cluster to the new car?

yeah i did ...i wanted to reflect the mileage for the motor correctly.

Not feeling the spoiler at all, but I really like the window tints and rims.

Badass 4g dude.

Also not diggin the spoiler, but hey its your car. do what YOU like.

4thgenceli
02-23-2010, 03:57 AM
Don't like the spoiler... do those lil' legs that face inward come off? Maybe if you can remove those bottom legs and just have it go 90 degrees from the body it would look decent (sort of like how the SRT4 or EVO wings are).

Otherwise that bish is CLEAN.

187flatliner
02-23-2010, 07:32 AM
thanx guys...i do try to keep her clean....i wash/wax her at least twice a week sometimes....im still on the fence about that spoiler....i like it but then some days i don't.......i think it would look better when its painted the color of the car...as it sits now its primered and that been said it sticks out somewhat.



i got a quote on the two dents i have on her for 150...since i don't now how to do bodywork. i really wanna learn tho.......but shes my DD and i cant have her down for any amount of time rite now.

187flatliner
02-26-2010, 12:49 AM
well i finally got around to getting the temp. namebadging onto her.

the final one will be on the sideskirt but a lil different......im gonna put it into the same font as the celica.

heres the pics..........

new rubber all around
obtain all new trimming around the windows
apply new seals all around
re-route the batt to the rear
fix all the dents with PDR

02-27-2010, 11:35 PM
loved the reply man.....but im still gonna shave everything, except the gas door........i love a clean smooth look.......and i fucking really am digging that paint.



oh heres a couple of pics of what i found at the local yard today.



http://i787.photobucket.com/albums/yy155/187flatliner/1987%20celica%20gt/IMAG0052.jpghttp://i787.photobucket.com/albums/yy155/187flatliner/1987%20celica%20gt/IMAG0053.jpg

im not sure if this was a dealer item or its just aftermarket.....i ruined it tho....when i was cleaning it up the letters started to fall apart so i just took them all the way off.......not sure if ill keep this......not digging it when the lights are down.


http://i787.photobucket.com/albums/yy155/187flatliner/1987%20celica%20gt/IMAG0054.jpghttp://i787.photobucket.com/albums/yy155/187flatliner/1987%20celica%20gt/IMAG0057.jpg

this was the best find out of everything.......it has the original decals still in 100% shape.....not faded or peeled like most of them are.....the spoiler was intact with all three pieces ...... funny thing was this paint color is grey but the car it was on was black........

i think this one is very rare due to it saying GT not GT-S like almost everyone ive seen.......is this rite somewhat?

i dont think ill keep this spoiler tho.....might sell it due to i wouldnt want to paint over the decals. what do u think?

Mr. Babb
02-27-2010, 11:40 PM
dude your car looks immaculate as it stands, why on earth would you shave all that stuff and paint it another color? and btw what exactly is the all trac kit? is it like the aeroform?

since i have a gt...ill be upgrading my car to the alltrac look.......

Mr. Babb
02-28-2010, 03:34 AM
that oem spoiler is the shiznit, take it to someone who cuts vinyl and get them to cut you some new decals to match; then take off the originals, sand and paint spoiler, and put on the new decals = done!

and that bra will kill your paint beneath it

I have the spoiler on my GT, and it says GT on it.

4thgenceli
02-28-2010, 05:57 AM
Yeah the GT thing isn't that rare.

http://fourthgenceli.celicatech.com/rearangle.jpg

There's my old one..

I wouldn't shave the handles & all that stuff. There's posts on how to remove the stock antenna and use a s2000 antenna. Give that a glance, makes it a lil' cleaner. I'd keep the rear wash nozzle, but I'm in AZ where we get dust storms like no other & I need to wash my rear window frequently :)


I'm with Joe.. don't shave the handles. I installed poppers on the old celica and it epiclly failed. Either the actuator would not release fully, or didn't have enough pulling power to pop the latches. If you don't like the door handles, why don't you paint them to match the body?

And yes..OEM gen4 liftback spoiler > all others.

187flatliner
03-01-2010, 07:00 AM
i knew that it wasnt THAT rare it was just that i have never seen one for the gt's but always for the gt-s's.......but hey they are in good shape and ill be keeping this spoiler......but i really wanna shave the door handles.....im gonna have them professionally installed so if something goes wrong...back to the shop. a buddy of mine has them done and he has no problems and hes had them over 3 years.




and that bra will kill your paint beneath it


its already chipped to shyt anyways...im hiding them for rite now.

are there 3 parts to the spoiler, or just 1

187flatliner
03-01-2010, 08:06 AM
3...its just a regular 4th gen spoiler, it was the decals i was thinking of.

yeah id just use it, btw me and rizin are in chat

187flatliner
03-01-2010, 05:19 PM
but im gonna look in to maybe getting the 3piece made into a one piece.....has anyone done that?, i was thinking since i dont have all the holes i could get a bodyshop to connect the pieces together for me.

4thgenceli
03-01-2010, 06:40 PM
Highly advise agains that. It's split in 3 parts, left right & center. If it's all 1 piece, whenever you shut the hatch you run the risk of cracking/breaking it off.

little bit of an update........ alarm reinstalled!!!!!


got the oem spoiler mounted and it works but i have to reseal it due to i noticed it was leaking all over my stuff in the rear when i washed it today.


i also just finally realized why my power antenna didnt work, i dont even have a power antenna. whoops my bad. guess its to the local yard to locate one that works.

pics will be added later due to its dark rite now and i had to work and i forgot my camera today.

Looks great... amazing what a difference it makes when you got the factory radio brackets. Fantastic work...

you know i never even thought about the brackets being different from the st and gt......it fit like a charm, i even called myself a dumbass for not thinking that before......well i guess that proves a point, you always need a second mind.

I see that you have a boost gauge, did you turbocharge it?

187flatliner
08-31-2011, 04:47 AM
no.....i got a good deal on that pillar pod....i was just making the fitment secure.....the boost will be replaced with an oil pressure one on payday. but im making plans for the turbo soon.....so it will be used one day.
