Looks like I have another Celica :)
Just bought a 92/93 GT-R.
Faded red... such an attractive colour.
Haven't got it started yet buy it looks tidy enough (at the moment)

Does anyone know what the hi-performance compact relay is on the pic?http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/03/28/ny8eqe4u.jpg

Looks like a standard automotive relay. Where do the wires go?

Also, that pink color will clean up with a little elbow grease and some car polish :)

Not had a chance to fully look yet... One of the cables goes straight to the positive battery lead :S

Hids sound like a nice add on.

HIDs usually don't require a relay. An alarm should be pretty obvious.

Don't think its an alarm or immobiliser. Nothing went off when I opened the door and the engine turned. The battery wasn't full enough to start it :(

Sweet!

I do hate your continent (or at least the continent that you are close to) because you get the 3SGE instead of the 5S.

Looks like it shouldn't take too much work to make it nice.

I've actually gone the other way on this one. I am restoring my ST183 convertible (with manual gearbox) using parts from the St182 :)
