Right, update time. It has been slow since Christmas but I knuckled down and got quite a few little jobs sorted. I even managed to get oil and water into the block and wired in the ignitor meaning that I could start it up for the first time. However nothing is ever easy, when I went to turn it over the starter motor popped out but didnt turn. I tried another starter motor but the same thing happened. I think there is an earthing problem between the battery and the engine and the chassis because when you turn the keys all the lights dim down like the starter is drawing to much current or something? Any ideas?

Anyway, in New Zealand we have a series of events for car people and the highlight of the year is the National 4's and Rotaries car show which I entered. I wasn't trying for any awards, i just wanted to show off my GT4, which was the only Celica at the whole show (if you dont count the Rayglass drag Celica).

Heres a pic....

Been sorting minor issues out and managed to get it started!! It has no mufflers at the moment so its rather loud and when it back fired it shook the floor boards in the house!

Video of the first start.
