Default Post a pic or two of your Celica

It doesn't matter if the paint's bad or not. If you'd like you can leave a brief description of the small and/ or big mods you've done to it, whether you plan on keeping it for a long time or eventually selling it and moving on to a different car, etc. etc. Feel free to talk about it.

Yep, it's life lives in a parking lot. #ApartmentLife. Anyways, the timing is currently messed up (still runs though) so I'm not turning it on for a while until I either fix it myself (can't in 108 degree weather) or I have someone come down and do it for me, when the weather goes does to the mid 90s sometime this month, hopefully.
The rear of the car has masking tape on it because I was sanding the paint off of the rear bumper. I'm about 75% done with the sanding. My intentions are to sand the rear bumper, use filler primer, then sand again, then primer it, and paint it white again (with the exact color, Super White.) Also add a few coats of clear coat over the paint. Of course, I plan to do this all simultaneously (the same day, or two.)
I painted the mud flaps flat black about two months ago. The right front mudflap was slightly crashed somehow by the previous owner. You can sort of see it in the pics. The paint is acceptably holding up, although I should've sanded the old paint off, primered them, and put more than two coats of flat black paint on them.
I added light blue tint on the fog lights, and they make the car looker a lot nicer, in my opinion. I was considering yellow tint, but in my area of the city, I see a lot of Japanese cars with yellow tint on their fog lights.
I completely clay barred the entire car. The paint was about 90% completely covered in oxidation. I'm almost positive they almost never washed the car. The result turned out decently, although I did add a lot of light swirl marks.
I've bought a lot of small stuff it was missing in the interior (knobs, replaced some stuff as well.)
I had the center box (between the seats, don't know what it's called) reupholstered. It turned out great, I love the way it looks. It had some small holes and a few medium to big holes on the material.
It also has a dash-cover, which makes the interior look a lot cleaner, and slicker. The dash has no cracks or anything, I just put it to prevent them from happening, and for styling.
I plan on keeping it for life (haha, I know, I know), but I'm not sure. I plan on fixing/ restoring anything on it that needs fixing or restoring.
FYI I know the steering wheel cover looks questionable, but I think it' better than having no cover on it at all; as long as it protects the wheel. I just had it laying around, so I just put it on.
I plan on doing a valve adjustment on it soon, and, as mentioned, doing the timing job on it soon(er) as well.
I also plan on (whenever I get a job) getting a brand new coil over suspension for it, that'll drop it's ride height an inch or two (at the most.)
It's got 145k original miles on it. I've owned it for about 5 months, and for the most part, love the car. Even with all of it's door hits (about 5-7 small ones in total), I still park far away from other cars, and park in the back of parking lots to take care of it. Since it lives in a parking lot, I always go out to check on it, about 2-4 times a day. There's a lot of punk ghetto street kids where I live that are always in big and small groups. That's the big reason why I check on it constantly. (I just got out of school FYI, I'm on vacay at the moment. Yay, more time to work on the little Celi.)

the first pic is just before I bought it and the second is right after-She rides Bra-less now cause it was ratty, ugly and covered up the side lights. The paint had a bunch of black residue and dirt under where the bra sat but after her first bath it cleaned up pretty well (just a little bit of scratching at the top of where the bra sat, I'm hoping it might buff out)
as for mods well I haven't really done anything yet as I'm trying to save up for some of the bigger stuff first (coil-overs, front and rear brake upgrades, wheels, 5sfe to 3sge or gte...you know the good stuff) I have put a Weapon-R intake on it though and I have to say it sounds Amazing with just that little change. Honestly, I've owned this car for just less than a month (and over 1300 miles already) and I'm thinking I want to keep and work on this lovely little machine for quite some time.
