What I can say about here is there is room in the budget for the usual cleaning/detailing, plus she needs a set of halfshafts, rear strut mounts, and some high beam housings. I plan to also do a timing belt as its been 70K since its been done. Other than that she runs and drives good, will clean up nice and match the black paint I have planned for my bike.

I cant wait to see what I can do with this paint!




and Im not sure on the wheels yet. At first I didnt like em, but they are actually growing on me. old school Boyeeeeee!

Thats actually one of the first things that popped into my head. I will be looking at my schedule and seeing if its possible now. I think it may in fact be a moral imperetive.


Le Bra should Le Go.

Congrats!

I would LeAgree except that its covering some damage inflicted but the PPO. It will be coming off to acess the extent of the damage, but Im guessing it needs a whole nose...so it may just have to stay for now.

First paint restoration test. Its single stage paint so it will clean up easily but I will have to be careful not to go through it.

If you need a new nose, I have one. I also have high beams enclosures. Let me know if you want 'em.

I definately will need the high beam enclosures! One of mine is missing the lens entirely and the other is a fish bowl. I didnt get the bra off today to take a look at what Im looking at to make it right. Installing a new head unit and having working dash lights took priority. What all do you have as far as the nose goes?

I have the one I took off my 6th gen to make way for the 205 front end I put on. Its the pre-facelift (94-95) valence, it's turquoise pearl (Toyota color code 746 I believe), but it's in good shape (Car only has 118k on the ticker) I also have both high beam enclosures I took off to make way for the projectors I put on. I also have a red pre-facelift valence, but it's in some rough shape, I don't think I could even bother selling it. Get a look under that bra, cause if you need the crash bar and/or the foam pad, I have those in mint shape as well. Of course I will take/post pictures of all of the above items prior to any sort of agreement.

That was the FIRST thought that popped into my head when I realized he meant 6th Gen Celica, not 6th Gen random-something-else. I feel a convoy is a brewing...

Congrats man!

Very nice looking 6th gen. and the paint looks great after that restoration! I'm not a fan of the car bra, but I understand why it would be there, actually considered doing the same w Fury a while back bc she has a little nose damage.. but it's not bad enough to really justify the bra....


If you need a new nose, I have one.

Seth if he doesn' want it, lemme know..

I really do like the dash and console layout on the 6th gens. I miss that about them. Some black leather seats would look amazing in there, imo.

Same.

I love the swooping console aimed at the driver. Kinda like the Supra.
