Well, it seems that everyone else in the Celica clan is showing off their rides so I thought I might join in. She's my baby and I'm incredibly proud of it. I can't count the number of hours i've spent working on it.

My Baby:
- 1987 ST162 Celica SX (Update Model). 5spd manual, Rare Amethyst Silver, has a purple / blue tinge under the right light.

Not applicable right now. :runaway:

- 30mm low King Springs (progressive type)
- KYB Gas shock absorbers
- Oversized front bump stops to prevent scrubbing

Rolling stock:
- 7th Gen Celica SX 15" wheels
- Toyo Trampio R series tyres

Interior (ADM P-plate spec :hehe: )
- All Sony music system incl. headunit, 200w 6x9's, 12" 800w sub, 120w 4" coaxials crammed into modded stock enclosures. Genuine no-name amp! Working electiric antenna!!
- Neon lights in footwells (activated by opening doors or manually switched) and in boot.
- Custom parcel shelf complete with TA22 'Celica' emblem.
- Lights in the door handles that light up with the interior illumination (got sick of ppl not being able to find them in the dark!).

Planned Mods:
- CAI and 2.25" exhaust with high flow cat.
- Upgrade my rear swaybar in the near future, the stock one is a joke!






After painting bits and pieces:



And how it is at the moment...



Currently in the process of installing the Gen 3


Its from a JDM ST202, 80'ks on the clock. Found out it has HKS iridium sparkplugs which was a nice surprise.

So far I have finished marrying the two looms together, had a custom thermostat housing made up and changed over lots of little things like the throttle cable, speed sensor etc. Hopefully I will recieve my new mounts by next weekend and we can drop her in!
