Question

Hi all!

 

Just recently got my 7th gen t-sport Celica & I've been having a huge smile since!

 

Got quite a bit of rust on the sub frame, suspension components and slightly on the body, need to change the control arm bushings and a bit of touch up paint but otherwise engine is running strong as hell! It was the only car that was available in the colour and spec I wanted, so I'm prepared to put a bit more cash into her till she is restored!

 

Not Driving her yet, gotta sort out insurance once i'm 21 in September... Greenlight seems to be a good company as they don't increase premiums on things like a japspeed exhaust cause it makes little difference to the engine's original power. Any offers or tips would be fantastic!

 

Got Bilstein Shocks, 30mm lowering springs & a Japspeed backbox (Rez back).

 

Looking forward to the adventures & car meet in the future! M.C.elica5b68cfee34e0d_5b68ceb0203c6_20180805_1425461.thumb.jpg.1c7a6c08228e4b17046d722ca7103768(2)_LI.jpg.5d771f729c6ffda707af4828c0429096.jpg

That's all the mods my Celica had when I first got her as well.

Wonderful noise, feel and power. Good luck with the insurance though. Hope you live in a quiet friendly area :D

Welcome and also those headlights seem to be heavily fogged up. You could be the record holder. Got any close up pics of the head lights?
