Postby alexinvancouver » Sun Dec 18, 2011 5:44 am

hello every one
i just bought a new celica from online auction
she's still on the way from salvage yard in Kelowna
and when she comes to my place i'll give her a little buffing before i put her back on the road
maybe some one recognizes this one?

Good luck with saving the alltrac. Looks like a great project. If you are interested we have Group buy going for Mid-pipes.

no, i was driving 08 impreza 2,5i for snow-x and took 1st overall beating everyone including about 20 full blown rally cars.
(have to say street cars had 10 tries while rally cars had only 2)
last year i was driving 04 sti and got 3rd in awd. that one had too much power for slippery surface =o(
am i gonna see any of u guys on barne's lake snow-x in january?

Just so u know 90% of front end stuff is changeable. So control arms and steering are the same I think swaybars are just different thickness and shocks and springs are same just different rates. Fenders on gt4 are generally widebody and normal celicas are narrow so fenders could be a challenge in a pinch u can run a celica front bar. Bonnet looks ok and I dunno if a celica one will clear the intercooler. Rear is totally different. Fuel tank arms shocks brakes everything is different. Good luck but good to see another one being saved

thanks for the reply
i always liked Celica's

i think i found used fender and control arm but can't find spindle =o(
do u know if spindles are the same from gt4 and fwd gt-s?
because there're quite a few gt-s suspensions available

Finally 4 years later she's on the road and ready to run TSD rally in Merritt on July 18-19.
lotsa work done:
deleted a/c system,
deleted ABS
Changed main and rod bearings, (just to make sure she'll run for at least another 25 years lol)
compression was good and even across all 4 (i think it was 180)
new timing belt, new tensioner
rusty Q-panel and rocker panel parts replaced.
I found out drain tuber from sunroof were right in rocker panels (what a stupid design!)
so I extended them and redirected to the outside (see pic)
new foglights and LED lights
installed smaller and lighter battery
