Ground wires
Hey guys.

I was wondering where I can get me a set of ground wires. I know that you can get a set from Team Celica for $30 shipped but it is only in that blackish color. Anyone know of a place that sells them for a good price in different colors?

Not sure what colors I should get. I am going to be installing the Optima Red Top and I do have a silver.polished front strut bar. My car is Silver and am going for a black/silver look with a bit of red.

Which color ground wires would look good?

Red
Silver
Black

there are some that sell on ebay, but they arent precisely made for celicas for sure. but you can follow the same instruction that team celica got
or else some ppl make themselves one, they say it costs as cheap as 10$

Come to think of it, it would be pretty cool to get the black ones that Team Celica sells. I want my engine to look clean and stock without it being stock.

Will be getting an Intake, the TPR one and that one is black, so it would match nicely with the rest of the stock parts.

Do you have set stefanoc?

You could buy some audio 4 gauge wire and some nice connectors an diy for a lot cheaper. Go to any car audio shop and get it for like $1 a foot. Stinger makes various colors.

Why not make your own grounding wire. I got instructions in PDF format on how to do it as well as parts needed. thumbsup

Can it be done for less than $30 you think?

If so, do you mind forwarding me that PDF file?

on teamcelica.com there's a write up for installation and how long ur wires should be..use that guide to cut and make ur ground wires..i use Happie's groundwire lenght..i e-mailed him and ask about the lenght he uses and he emailed back..now i odn't remember what the sizes are..i bought the wire for 89cents a foot off of eBay, i also bought the gold plated ring terminal off eBay for about 5-7shipped..so good luck..just take ur time, u'll do fine..if i can do this, i know U CAN..

this may sound stupid but could you just mask off the tips and spray paint the ground wires?
