    How does that B-pillar trim come off? I am really enjoying this thread, and what did you say that air dam was off of?

    B pillar trim - take off inside trim, maybe one it two screws plus clips, then there should be access to unbolt the outside trim piece. And the window trim should slide off if I remember correctly

    Take off the plastic surround thats around the seat belt where it goes behind the trim, They break easy so be careful. There are two screws behind the surround holding in a metal bracket that the surround clips to. Behind the metal bracket is another screw holding the trim on, Then there are two more clearly visible above and below the seat belt. Remove the seat belt, Should be a 14mm socket, Then the trim comes right off. Once the trim is removed there are three nuts (Six on a liftback) holding the B pillar on, remove them and ya done! I'd add pictures but can't be bothered... Just got home from a 9 and a half hour day of work...

    The lip is off of a Mk1 Golf =)

    Thanks! My Haynes Manual doesn't show too much in the way of trim removal on the interior. Last question, I swear, but did your round headlight buckets fit on the '80-'81 square light brackets? The round light mounting brackets have a mounting area for the grille that is different from the square light cars.

    Yeah, The round ones fit perfect, I had to use a second spring for each light though. Other then that they should screw in pretty easy.

    Finally! INTERWEBS!

    Telstra suck... They messed us around so much with the ADSL2 ballshit >___> 2 weeks of no internet isn't that bad really.

    Anywho, I bought a rear chrome bumper from an RA40 guy on Toymods (Willofan(Spelling could be wrong)). He makes replica peter williams RA40 race cars and had it lying around.

    So I fit it along with the front one I had. The lip looked outta place so I removed that too. I much prefer this look, It really brings out the 70's lines that hide in the RA40s silhouette. It had surface rust on it so I polished it up along with the front one and WOW!. I highly recommend what ever the hell I used... But I can't remember and it's in the shed. If anyone wants to know what polish it was I'll check when I'm not tired. It was purple though =P

    Pics. Excuse the quality, Shit camera. Looks way better in person!! I'll try rock up to the next cruise for proof ;P




    Ding in the front one... Doesn't bother me.





    Also I did the front wheels on the weekend.

    Before:



    After:



    They still need a polish though,I'll have to get something more abrasive then the chrome polish.
    The center caps cost $35 from the US, Including shipping so I thought 'why not?'. Rear wheels still need doing, I ran out of time so I'll do them tomorrow or sunday.


    That's all for progress at the moment.


    P.S The headlight covers are up for sale, I have only let you guys know so far but I may be putting them up on Ebay at a later stage.

    Make a reasonable offer =) Shipping shouldn't be too much, They are heaps light. One has a piece of plastic missing at the top but you can't see it when it's on the car.

    Nice looking celica. Your bumpers seemed different from mine at first, but now i saw that your are missing the plastic corners and the plastic strip on the front one. Have you ever thought about putting on some clear front indicators on her, because they look really nice on clean cars.

    You can get the honeycomb grill here in the U.S. Just need to find the right person willing to sell one. I have a friend in Seattle, WA that paid close to $2,000 for a set of chrome bumpers from AUS. I don't know what costs may have changed ,so who knows what it would cost now.
