Hey i don't own a celica yet!...but allow me to compliment you on a nice caliper paint job dude!...Nice Silver color, but is that regular paint you used or the G2 Caliper paint kit! this kit is used to paint caliper brakes which witstands great amount of heat when the brakes are applied, and the G2 Caliper paint kit won't chip! thumbsup
