Well I couldn't find my other post to revise, so heres a new one. Just got done unmasking it and I couldn't be happier! I ended up going with Dodge Viper Red. It scared me in the paint booth because it looked REALLY orange but once it got out of the florecent lights it looked great. I'll post more when its all back together too.

Go with black carpet, an autopower roll bar, 2 Bride seats with Takata harness's, Black SC dash with custom gauges put in the CD/Radio area and a pop out 7" LCD screen.


Motor... I say go with the 2JZ + V160 .. with a T51R with supporting mods and BL FMIC kit with a 4" turbo back.


And for wheels go with 18x10.5 all around Volk Time attack CE28's.

Turned out really nice. If you don't mind me asking how much did the complete paint end up costing? And copy what Pakman said, you can't go wrong with that setup.

Nice color. I don't mean to go OT, but wouldn't it be a bit unsafe to have a rollbar in a daily driver (when you don't have a helmet)? The likelihood of hitting your head on it in a crash is what scares me.

You do not need a rollbar for chassis stiffening (there are ways to do it without using bars), however if you are going to cage it, only way to really cage it is welding it into the chassis (there is no way around it if you want it to work) However, there are foam and pads you can put on the cages to help (but works best with helmet).

Simpson harnesses are a lot nicer than takata harnesses (are track approved in the USA, and look a lot less tackier), and one bride seat for the driver is enough.

thanks guys. No plans for a roll cage just yet. It may be red but trust me, its not fast.

cost? well I did 95% of the work myself and I have good friends to help with the rest. From being hit on both sides to what it is now with no expence spared in materials, I'd say I'm about 2 grand into it.

Actually if it was me.. i'd ditch Takata's ugly green harnesses and go with Shcroth(sp?). And also I don't think he "needs" a roll bar. I would just rock one anyway.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Would've been better to remove them, so when you take them off, you don't have the old color underneath. I'm taking all that shit off when I send my Celica for a color change.
