My Celica GT-S

She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.

I got the windows tinted yesterday. I did it mostly to keep the contents within the car obscured. I may have to remove the tint if I find it interferes too much with the radar detector.

Got the oil and filter change done yesterday, and while I was there I had them install the new bumper lip. When I picked it up, one of the mechanics asked me some questions about the side skirt and said that my ride looked really good.

Just need to do two more modifications (installation of molly wing and wheel arches), and then I'll be done for the time being. (At least until they bring the C-One Carbon Fiber Hoods here)

I hit 36,000 miles on Friday. Time for an oil change. I'll go down tomorrow and get it done. I should do my own oil change but my car is hard to get under without a lift.

GPS system is finally installed. I had the decks mounted on Thursday, but they didn't hook it up right, so I could like play CDs and DVDs but not get GPS data or FM stations. I brought it back to them today to go over it again and they figured out that the guys who installed it the first time had the wires plugged in into the wrong places. So it all works now. Now I need to read the instructions...

I hit 30,000 miles today. I think I'm going to take it in tomorrow to get the service done.

My TRD headlamp covers arrived yesterday, so I took the opportunity to go and get the car washed and then installed them. They look good. I'll post pictures when I get the chance. I think my car's a pretty good balance of show and go now. The Seven is almost done. Once the GPS gets installed, I think I will be finished with the mods.

I really like the new handling on the car. It feels very different now, in a very good way. I guess that's why I like working on cars -- you can see and feel the results of what you've done with them.
