hey everyone, im Ricardo from San Diego CA. Im 21 years old and i'v had my celica for almost 2 years now, time flies! Anyways she's a 1991 celica GT coupe, with an automatic transmission and stock 5sfe engine.
-The trunk hinges are broken but the trunk still opens and closes properly. -The paint is fading away from the passenger's side, but from the drivers side its like a dark teal color i would say.
-The interior is in great conditions, no cracked dash, no ripped seats.
-i have a 7in touchscreen dvd installed and it looks clean as if it were from the factory.

Mods to do:

rear drum to disc conversion
install 7th gen 5 spoke wheels
"the swap" (5sfe into 3sgte)
All-trac hood
paint it either black or a charcoal gray & get the rims painted black. what do you guys think?

Welcome to the forum! Care to post pics of your car?

Good plan as far as mods go. Do you not have any plans for the suspension? I ride in a 91 GT Coupe regularly that has Koni yellows and Eibach Sportline (are those the springs?) springs, and the car rides and turns very well.

Good luck!

Konis cost about $800 for the front and rear, and Eibach Sportlines are just under $300 for front and rear. Those prices are from Koni's and Eibach's websites. Konis are awesome because they're infinitely adjustable, unlike KYBs which have a small number of settings. A rear sway bar is also good idea, but I don't know which brand is the best.
