So i decided to make my project thread to keep track of all the things i do to my celica aka Ghost. Yes, the name of the car is Ghost since all the cars i owned so far in my life time (including 2 previous celica's) were black.

After looking around for a couple months for the right celica with no body rust all i found 2 of them. One white( and the other black, but i couldn't make up mind on which one to buy. So the plan was to buy both, but when i went to go buy the black car it was already sold :(.

This is how i found her the day i bought her.

So after taking 3 trip to store to get the right tool to switch my sparks plugs i found there a bit of oil with them. but then again when i took them off they werent to tight, cant expect much the last owner didn't take care of it. But i put some NGK iridium and right away i could tell the different. also i got to work on removing the passenger door panels, original radio, tints (couldnt see shyt ), spare tire and trunk panels.

I havent done much to the car since we have gotten really busy at work since its close to xmas, i started gutting the inside and man its dirty. I got some 7 gen rims and rubbers for $400, which was a pretty decent price, I plan on buying new rubbers next spring. I hate UPS they can never deliver to my house, so i have to go pick clutch from there warehouse.

Havent updated this on while. i have done everything above except the exhaust and the coilovers. I Have put on a new black hood, painted the sunroof black also, and the stripe down the side also black, painted my caliper what was suppost to be red turn out to be more of an orange but looks alright. I also finished gutting the interior, i am also in the process of removing the system 10.

Since this pic i have put on clear conners and smoked bumper lights. It sits pretty high since theres nothing inside. Which is fine since ill all have to winter drive my car. But since i have no deck in my car defroster for the hatch doesnt work :( i plan on getting some HID lights before the winter. I also started another side project 5SGE but ill be more details about that later.
