Hey there guys a very long time since ive been on here, last you guys heard the seca got totaled... Well i ended up getting a celica

To my discussed it was a lemon GRR but ive been very persistent with fixing it and giving it a second chance in life.....

This is what it looked like when i bought it,

That sludge has nothing to do with Castrol at all. That is a common issue for the 5S-FE, usually cause by poor maintenance schedules and poor oil flushing procedures. Service it at 5000km intervals as a maximum and the issue should not rise again.

I personally wouldn't mod an auto, but each to their own. At least the car's body is in decent condition this time.

I cleaned it with a lot of time and had to make sure i wasnt making it go down further into the engine took about 2 hours but she runs fine and havnt had a drama with the engine since.

And on another note trent, yes each to there own on modding an auto... but i was thinking of making it manual if i have the time and money (now shh if your going to say just buy a gt4) There isnt any about in WA that are 205's.

But im just happy that this car keeps me busy....

since you like the 6th gen celica

and since you mentioned WA

how about this jdm gt4

http://www.gumtree.c...4-wrc/260827896

I've been watching Jap Auction sites and you can get an ST205 GT4 for a few thousand $.. I'm very tempted to have ago importing one myself, Im wondering why this guy spent mega bucks on the car and never registered it?

Your doing a great job girl! keep it up. Get some nice wheels quickly. :D

I can almost guarantee you aren't gaining that. How much were they? You know that local companies make them right?

holy f**king christ that sludge.. screw that... would be horrifying to find. o.0

Hehe on the engine pics.. it looks so familiar yet so... empty ....like your missing something.. xD

Nice on doing the work yourself and such :P good to see, sh*t you live in WA though.

With a set of decent wheels and trd removal, this 204 has potential :)
