Hey, I just bought a 1988 Celica GTS. It still has the stock stereo but the back light for the buttons is only working for about half. I'd like to keep it in the car because it's pretty cool. Does anyone know if there's a fuse to fix the lack of light?

There's a bulb in the unit itself that is burnt out....I never worrief about it. But you can take it apart and change out the bulb but I'm not sure if u would need to solder the connections.....


Are u gonna keep the sideskirts on it for now or go for the stock ones.

I'll prolly get around to replacing the bulb eventually, sounds easy enough.

For now I'm going to stick with the sideskirts. I think I might put a new coat of paint on the skirts and modify the stock ones a bit too to fit in the space between. It cloud look good, I'll prolly try it in photo shop first

I tried that and u will have to cut the stocks a little.....and it didn't really look that good. I was gonna fiber glass the sideskirts and permanently mold them to the sides.

I might leave it till spring since i don't have a garage. I'll prolly come up with something pretty cool by then
