    Default 1990 Celica GT that has been neglected.

    Well, for the first part of this cars life it looks like it was very well taken care of. It seems like somebody slid it under a truck or something and I'm guessing that's when it all went to hell. I plan to use this car as a basic daily driver that I can park at the mall or outside without having to worry about it. I have 2 other cars I regularly drive, neither will see winter and one cannot drive in the rain even. This list is mostly for me to keep track of progress.

    List of what's been done:
    Fix floorpan from when dumb bitch (last owner) put a jack directly on it
    Pull metal back and fix drivers headlight so it can move again
    Disassemble drivers headlight and find why it's stuck
    Remove dent from drivers 1/4 panel
    Fix dim drivers headlight
    Replace headlights and fog lights with Silverstars
    Replace wipers, repaint arms
    Tear out interior, power wash, dry, clean the hell out of it all
    Fix fresh air switch ($70 for random parts at salvage yard)
    Timing belt, water pump, tensioner, idler pully
    Oil pump seal and front crankshaft seal
    New drive belts
    Flush radiator
    Valve cover gasket + oil change
    Basic tuneup (Plugs, wires, belt install, fuel filter)
    Flush power steering fluid
    Replace axle seals
    Replace drivers and passengers axles
    Front Wheel bearings.
    Replace outter tie rod ends
    Replace starter
    Rear wheel bearings
    Rear struts
    Drop transmission and crack the case open to get a tool back I dropped in (Clean transmission in the process)
    New tires and Alignment
    Replaced rod bearings
    Replace radiator petcock o-ring
    Proper gapping of body panels
    Replace front and rear motor mounts
    Paint front end

    Work needing to be done:
    Replace drive axle seal (Passenger side) AGAIN...
    Find engine oil leak and reseal oil pan
    Replace rear wheel cylinders

    Pictures: (Yes I'll post more later)

    Driving it two hours home from where I picked it up.

    It's on the road again at the moment, gotta update my pricing when I sort the rest of the paperwork out, it's going in for another alignment because they didn't adjust anything in the back like I asked, finish the paint and hopefully I can toss hubcaps on and call it.
