Brought my son a Celica last week, 184 auto. he doesn't need it for another year or so but will give us some time to tidy it up for him as a first car. Paid $480 including the tow,with no major problems.
Started to give it a good clean today once it was delivered. it is starting to look quite good.
The plan (other than catch up on maintenance and make the vehicle reliable) Is just to clean it up, tint windows, lower it a bit, add a decent sounding exhaust and might look at a respray further down the track.
The vehicle runs fine other than the auto needs a service and some suspension knocks from the left front which i am yet to investigate other than that everything seems fine just needs basic repairs and maintenance.
Couple of Questions.
It has 16" BBS rims that have been painted white and has started cracking the original finish underneath (Hyper Silver) seems perfect. Any quick tricks for getting the old white paint off?
Has anyone shortened the ridiculously long transmission lever? it makes cup holders and head units a pain to use.
I will get some pics up at some point.
