Discussion - http://oldschool.co.nz/2011/forum/index.php?/topic/21200-yelo76-1974-ta22-celica/?p=543791 Hiya all, I was planning to wait until the panel work had been done, but here goes anyway. What I have started with, A TA22 Celica (Actual year is 1974), has been registered as a TA23 (Previous owner has swaped the chassis plates at some stage). I now have a solid plan for fixing this up involving deregistering it , changing the plates back (As he left the original one in the car) and registering from scratch. Here is the state of it when I got it, didn't look too bad..... (and as the Tui add goes... Yeah Right) Apparently all it needed was to have the wiring for the dash re done and it was good to go, the more I cleaned it up, the more rust I found. Anyway, I quickly realised that it was going to be a back to bare metal job and cut out the rust and rebuild it. Tried getting it quoted at a few places, most wouldn't even consider it due to the amount of work. One guy said, he would charge the earth, why not get a mig and have a crack at it myself. So that is where I am at. Some of the passenger sill and the progress on it. What got cut out of the sill The rebuilt item (Sills were folded up through a work contact for nothing, Pretty stocked about this) One side stripped and more patches done at the top of the pillars. Anyway this has taken a good 6 months to get to this state due to having a young family etc. (Only get a few hours a week on it and a limited budget thus far) Plans for her are: Finish removing rust Shave locks and side mirrors Do as much of the filling and prep work myself Paint (Undecided at this stage, considering 2 tone, silver bottom and yellow with touch of orange candy on the top) New chrome all around 17" wheels (Undecided yet) Engine: 2TGEU to be built (Will run with 2TC twin carbs to start with) Sc-12 supercharger (Setup like Tim Frost's one was) CRO2 cooling system (I don't like big intercoolers and want something different) Deloomed engine bay + Battery in boot Handling: Upgrade of front discs to something larger Change rears to discs Try and work out some way of getting an LSD into it. New bushes all around etc. Interior: Well the door cards I have a pretty rotten, the Dash is stuffed and there is no parcel tray, So I am considering fabricating fibreglass versions. (Going to have a crack at making a mould for the dash) Recover rear seats and some new seats up front New stereo in dash 6" speakers up front, 6X9's back parcel tray, 10" in custom enclosure in the boot (Using the right side well) I know it is a bit of a list, but I guess I am in no real hurry to get there, as Budget allows. The main goal is to get it back on the road. Hopefully before the end of the year
