That's it. Don't need comments about the quality of the pictures or anything -- I know they are crap, and I used the wrong lighting etc etc

I just got the camera - give me a f'ing break! :-)

Anyways - the purpose of the post is to show that something is coming! smile

Bought the cannon digital ixus 40 (or SD300, as it's called in the US) to be able to document the modifications as we go along, and the finnished product - so you can rest assured that there will be many pictures smile

The overall aim is to have the car finnished before 1st of may 2005.

The exhaust on the car is a custom job all the way from the cat and back. It's made so I can re-attach the oem rear end -- which I have done, 'cause the car needed to pass some noise tests smile

The camera is f'ing awesome -- I just suck at taking pictures, that's all smile

The spacers are to move the rims further out. Bought them, as one of the plans for the car is to widen the fenders a bit. And I can't afford new rims this coming summer, so I'm using spacers to move the 8,5x19's out a bit.

Seeing as I live in norway, the prices will sound f'ing ridiculous to everyone else - but norway is extremely expencive. And customs do their best to make importing anything equally expencive.

The seibon carbon fiber Hood, blitz Intake, sparco hoodpins, rod millen lip, hose techniques kit, with shipping from the US over to norway, and norwegian customs charges etc ended up at about 2.000 USD. Could have been cheaper, but I wanted it delivered by air freight smile The Hood alone retails at around 2.100 USD from norwegian stores.

The rims with tires cost about 2.200 USD (which is concidered VERY cheap for 19 inch rims and tires here in norway :-( )

The wing cost 615 usd.
Spacers 215 usd.
Vizage kit 1.500 usd (bought in norway...check US prices to see how f'ing ridiculous norwegian prices are..)
Exhaust 860 USD.
Lowering springs (not pictured) about 300 usd.
The new exhaust (on its way) about 460 USD.

So...about 8150 USD spent so far.

And I'm looking at somewhere between 3000 - 4000 USD more before the car is finnished (2 tone re-spray, custom work, and having the exhaust fitted).

On top of that, I'm renting a garage for the celica + bought a 2001 model toyota funcargo (12.000 USD) to use as my every day car & drive around
parts etc. The celica will be strictly for sunny weekends, nothing else!

Adding everything up like this is never a good idea. Those "what are you
doing? do you know this is a big waste of money?" thoughts come creeping
up on me smile

Got boored and installed a few of the hose techniques hoses. Will install the rest, as soon as I've mounted the blitz Intake.

As far as I can remember (and that's not far) the test was of the metallic SUS filter. And I have the LM filter... So... You know... I don't care :-)
