If I knew where to get a piece of metal that size I might try it. So some news on the car, I replaced most of the nylon hose from my bost gauge with silicone and the car is even better than before. There was a kink inside the fender where the nylon was bent, and I think air was leaking there. I also rigged up some underfender extenders on the driver side so the plastic was not rubbing my tire. Now the only sounds from the car are awesome sounds, less the rattle from the battery tray in the trunk and that is on the list.

Not much to update this weekend. All my parts got here from toyota so I was able to do a little bit. I got the powerpoint fixed and installed as well as my hatch weather seal. I went to a welder and he said he can not weld a stud on my downpipe where I need it. He thinks the weld will keep it from being flush. He was too busy to do what other stuff I needed done. I am going to wait till my new battery tray comes in then I will get him to do some studs for that as well. I picked up another dremel carbide bit. This time one in a better shape, and it ate through that easy out like it was nothing. Now I need to get the rest of the bolt out then I can decide what I can do with the O2. I will either drill it bigger and retap or I will try and save the threads in there. My wife had some co-workers over this weekend and one was a toyota tech for 13 years, and he had never even heard of my car. I knew there were alltracs but had never seen the celica one. The car blew his mind. He wants to go for a ride once I sort out the O2. I am still deciding what I am going to do with the undertray. I am sort of leaning towards getting a wind splitter and fixing my UK splitters to make something like this.

I am going to try and use this to repair my splitter. I think it will do the job. Then I can work on my wind splitter.

I ordered some epoxy to fix my one splitter. I am going to fit those first, then I will start making plans for the wind splitter part of it. I need to figure out clearance cause I do not want to smash it around here. Mine will be black for now, but I may figure up a body colored version next year.

that looks really good josh. i wish we could come up with something that would work well. seems like it would be really popular on our cars.. also, that bit about the toyota tech is so cool. i love it when that kinda stuff happens. whenever i tell someone about my car they're like wow i had no idea that was a celica.. or all the usual comments. oh and going for a 100 pages! lol

I think the little... not sure what they are called... bumper accents/mini splitters in body color with the wind splitter in carbon/black would be really good looking. I'm thinking a low gloss black.

Gl with the repairs.

Success!!!! I finally removed and retapped that downpipe bolt. I took it for a test drive and no fumes in the car. Horray. Now I need to replace the rear strut bolts with toyota crash bolts then I can get an alignment. I need to stil figure out how to exit my driveway if I am going to have a lip. For the first time I scrapped underneath my bumper. I would hate to smash a lip.

Here is the dremel tool that did all the work.

I put the center bezel in today. The car still needs to get cleaned up but things are looking pretty decent even as is. I also have some chipping of the silver behind the mirror I need to address, and suggestions? I installed one set of crash bolts in the rear. If I need to adjust further, I will put the other set in. My list for the rest of the year is getting pretty small. I am just waiting for a few items to come in. I am going later this week to get an alignment, then I need to get a couple things welded once my battery tray gets in, then I will just drive it till it gets warm again.

I just noticed this celica has a different emblem on the front. I wish there was a more detailed pic. It gives me an idea of a shape that blends well.

Looking really good.

Where did you find the casette?

Oh one other thing.... you blurred the license numbers in the most recent photos, but left them unblurred in the driveway pics.

Thanks. The one blurred was posted somewhere else. I was not too worried about posting the unblurred ones here. The cassette case was from a vinyl toy store in Chicago. I am sure you can find them online.
