So guys... I called wolf steel(the shop mentioned in the post... He is still waiting on parts to copy...and I just bought an alltrac to add to the gt4 family and it's got bad rust underneath and km 3 hours away for that shop I would bring him the complete car to make new parts... My question is how many people would honestly be interested in parts from the list in the first post

Alright, so yesterday I was cleaning my car and noticed the left rocker panel was rotten from the inside, I need to change it asap if I don't want it to spread...

I contacted Wolf Steel and they're interested in making those, I'll most likely drop my car there for them to make the template...

I also asked for complete floors for a 1990 Toyota pickup but thats another story... :D

Here`s the convo

Bonjour Charles,


Thanks for the email. I'd be interested in making those parts, for the Celica for sure. I would need to use your car as a template for the first parts. It would be ideal if you could leave it with us for a few days so we can make templates and fit the panels, but if that's not possible, we can work something out.


Regarding the pickup, I'd like to be making the floors for that too, but I'd need to see some pictures of it because I seem to remember that the beads in them being deeper than we can go, but maybe we could work something out.


Cheers,


Robin Wilkinson

Hi!

I was wondering if it could be possible to have some body panels (rockers, fender etc) for a 5th gen Celica?

Im from Montreal and I know a couple guys around the area and from the States that would be very interested in buying those parts since nobody makes them anymore (especially the rockers and floor)
They`re not that special in term of profile or bend so I would imagine you could be able to do them quite easily.

I could supply my car if needed since the left rocker is starting to rot...

Also, floors for the 1991 Toyota pickup would be awesome! I could supply my truck aswell if needed... (I have an extended cab)

I also speak french but I was unsure in which language you were the most confortable since your website is in english..

Thanks!

Great to see some movement on this again. I know quite a few people in the area here that aren't active on the forums but could definitely use a set of rocker panels.

I'm in for a set of rockers. I just (poorly) welded in a new piece on my left panel and would love to have a better solution.

Sweet, glad to see some people are interested, they should be cheap , they sell complete rocker (48'' long) the the pickup at 50$cdn each so... I'll ask for widebody panels aswell (rear quarter and fender) it would be awesome to have they in steel rather than fiberglass...

So your gonna bring him your car? I'm about to start stripping mine to bring him the complete shell to cut and do whatever he wants with it lol... Might not be able to bring it to him as quick as you, but by all means go ahead lol worst case I can bring him the car of he still needs it for other parts afterwards, I was just waiting for the warm weather to come along and needed to fix the gt4 so I can get it out of the way which is now done...

Ladies and gentlemen, for those who didn't see my posts on Facebook, I'm happy and really excited to announce, that Wolf Steel will now be fabricating body panels for the Celica family hahah... I brought him(parts are from a 92 Canadian all Trac ;
floors pan(front to back, Rh & lh)
front fenders(widebody Rh & lh)
rear quarters (widebody Rh & lh)
part of the truck floor, where the spare tire is, and of course the rocker panels
also brought him doors to make the bottom of the doors if needed. I brought all of this to him yesterday, so not sure what the production time would be, but feel free to give him a call, or email for the parts, shipping shouldn't be a problem either..
