    Default My 1990 Celica ST

    Alright so I washed and waxed my car at work and since I'm trying to do less costly things as I save for another car I decided to cruise around my neighborhood and take a few pictures of the Celica. I always had spots, but the local kids are really pissing me off and I don't want to show them the spots to take pictures of their cars anymore, nor do I want to wait to get my Corolla. So yeah, from 5 feet, my Celica is CLEAN. It doesn't sit the best, doesn't have any fancy wheels, I don't have any more than a Canon digital camera with hardly any settings... but I just went out and tried it. I edited a few pictures, but not all of them. And all I used for that was a free program called Paint.Net.

    I do like them though, but I'm interested in what you guys think. In fact, some of these even motivate me to put $$$ into the Celica. I feel like they freshen up the 5th gen. I took a few more too, but haven't really done anything with them. Some of the others are on my Facebook

    1990 ST
    13" 4x100 painted steelies 175/65/13 (?)
    auto
    Maaco (stage 1 is it called?) black paint [ again]
    20% tint on the sides

    Enjoy!


















    Sorry, tried to get them to show up as just pictures but I don't know what I'm doing wrong...

    You can also create an account on PhotoBucket.com, put your pictures in there, and pull the links for that sight and paste them here, that works very well.

    You pictures have a copyright otherwise I would edit your post. It won't allow me to get the URL.

    You are aware that we have a free gallery here, right?

    That paint job honestly doesn't look that bad, especially when you compare it to a twenty plus year old Toyota job.

    How much did it run you?

    Okay here's the bad part.. back a few months before I did a little research (and when I still had my MR2) I thought the Celica coulda used a paint job. It still looks good now, a year+ later, ESPECIALLY if you're about 10 feet away, but it needs a 3 step. I took it to Maaco and I didn't even primer it which I would warn against for sure! They certainly didn't either. Anyway, the paint job was close to 600? But My bumpers had cracking and a little bit of like a seashell pattern (I'm sure you guys have seen this before) which they charged practically another 700 to "resurface" the bumpers. Now I can still see a little bit of the shell pattern under the paint on the back bumper but you have to know what you're looking for in order to see that. So in total it was about $1200. Huge mistake.. practically cost me my MR2. But I learn from my mistakes. So I'm over it. And I love my Celica.

    If anyone is interested my name is Kevin Keuffer. I am a fan of the celicatech page on facebook if that makes it any easier.

    Ha I feel ya on that one.. Definitely not everyone's thing.


    I can't wait until I go to school next year.
    My Celica needs a little tlc but I don't have the money to buy/fix everything nor the know-how for all of it.
    I even have a whole list of things I'd do to it if I could to make it a much more enjoyable and unique car.

    But at the same time, I'm practically saving for a Corolla to fiddle with as an even cheaper option.

    I'd kill for a manual swap

    Haha yeah my bad. I've been trying to get a better idea of the 7th gen GTS lately too

    Anyway.. I quit dickin around and decided to finally start putting money into my 5th gen. I really don't care if I put a decent amount into it because that car has never let me down. Yes, it's also an ST but again, I don't care. There are plenty of mods to be done.. Now to start a build thread before the build begins? Or what... maybe I'll see tomorrow since I'm planning on picking up a few extra parts and getting some ideas together. Chances are I'll be taking everyone's ideas in throughout the process of the build. I have a basic idea, but I know I'm probably the least knowledgeable here.
