3 months = a little of 2000

CT- you could have saved half of that moneyt if you do the work yoursaelf. I have spent over 2000 on mods, all the work done was by me.

Uh, you got me thinking here. In order of purchase and install, here we go:

Clear tail lights (the one's that everythingcelica.com call "meat balls") $192
Pioneer Headunit (340+50)=390
and 2 Pioneer 450 watt 12" subs (free box) (100+40)=140
Jensen Amp (720 watts) (220+40)=260
2 footwell neons and one ceiling neon = 40
Blitz front end (-500 accident deductible) =700
Injen COI (+plus heat/spash guard) (320+28) =348
TRD exhaust (550+25) =575
2 front Infinity Reference components ~=200
17" Chrome Eagle Alloy MSRs ~=600
Kumo Exsta tires (cheap, but worth the cash) =410

HAVE, BUT NOT INSTALLED:
2 rear Infinity Reference compents ~=200
300 Watt Jensen Amp (for the 2 rear speakers listed above). ~=140
ACT clutch (am buying flywheel to install all at once to save labor costs) ~=400
C-One fiberglass hoodscoop ~=120

Roughly, about $4715. If you factor in the accident i had that caused me to get the 200 front end + custom raping on it (500) + insurance dectuctible (500)= 1200 instead of 700 (5215 since January 02. (I also lost my license for 6 months). It's been a rough year. I expect to double this by December.

I do my audio work (except the head unit because the damn internal amplifier screwed me up). Otherwise, I had to pay for everything else. Lucky my step-bro is a mechanic. But he recently moved. confused
Now I fork over real money for real work confused frown

My guess is I spent around $500 on the car so far. I got it in December.

Limo tint on all windows - $145
Super Blue Xenon Headlights - $20
Super Blue Front Blinkers - $10
Clear side markers w/ blue bulbs - $25
Iridium spark plugs, along w/ a tune-up $71
Cold-Air Intake - $80 (eBay)
Radar Detector - $68 (Yahoo Auctions - bought it way before I had a Celica)
Spray paint & primer - $9 (Metallic Red center console)
TRD chrome License Plate Frame - $30
TRD die-cut decals - $5 (set of 2)

Coming soon...

SpringTech Coilovers
Strut tower bars/sway bars
TRD exhaust
Headers w/ exhaust manifold
Jet speed chip
16" silver or white rims with Falken Ziex tires

Sometime in the future...

Blitz Supercharger Kit
Lamborghini Door Conversion
A body kit of some sort... I'm not too big on bodykits. I think most of them look too big & too "All show, no go". Besides, they're extra weight.

Absolutely Red awesome canyon road hugger with impressive straight-line acceleration.
