    Talking Hombre's Carbon Fiber Celica GT-S CarComputer

    A major change would be the old dash was a JDM celica dash which fit a 6.5" screen and i have a 7" screen in there so aobut 1/2 inch or so bottom was cut off. also the c/f was not of the highest quality. So i had a new JDM dash with navi opening imported, gave it to a buddy who molded in the new screen to fit full 7" and had Topshopheadliners.com wrap all of my new parts becsaue they do some of the best work i have ever seen.

    I like the way you molded the screen this time, it looks much better. Does that nos bottle get in the way when shifting?

    i think the car is an auto... it needs a drop sooo very very much... and that audio system leaves much to be desired... otherwise, props for the work, but as said above, not my cup of tea either, but much respect for the tuner world for doing that much yourself


    *edit*
    actually, i'm not sure if its an auto anymore... just re-looked over the pictures and it has a dead pedal/clutch/brake/accel... but i've seen many people put fake clutch pedals before lol, just can't quite see the pics all that clear... Btw, quick question... how much of the work did you do yourself? and that asian girl is bangin

    I'm sure alot of time and effort went into the install, and I'll give you credit for the effort.
    But..............

    That just screams "rice".

    And if you ever get in an accident, that nitrous bottle is going to turn into a torpedo right out your windshield!

    cheers

    lol, well it's because around here we're surrounded by ricers...

    Look at the shifter, looks weird to me...

    the car would be nice, but seriously a drop is in order ASAP. Who're you trying to get sponsorships from? why don't you just take the initiative and drop the $1000 or so for a good coilover setup yourself vs. waiting?

    How many other sponsorships have you gotten for this car? Do they always give you the best of their stuff for your car? If not i would spend the money and get a nice setup like Warx said.

    hey everyone. sorry i forgot to check back in. Yes it is a 6-speed manual with shift gate as opposed to a boot. so yes the clutch pedal is real. though i have never seen a fake one. Also the bottle works as a good armrest and isnt in the way but i dont have it in there for daily driving

    As for the drop its a long story and unless i get a sponsorship i must wait till july to do a drop (rules set forth, you can question them if you want but i dont really give a damn. i only have 2 months left )

    With the exception of actually wrapping the carbon fiber and painting the car, everything has been made or installed by myself. I am a poor collegekid (going to law school next semester) and cannot afford to have others install if for me.

    for the sponsorships i do not always get things for free, about 1/2 are on discount or some are discount untill u get magazine shoot then refund the rest. Unfortunatly with the soon to be massive law school debt, i am not purchasing anything more for the car so unless i get it sponsored i am keeping as is. I can play with more stuff when i have a larger budgit and actual job.

    greatwhite, i'm sorry if its not your style but i did not make it for you or anyone else so if it is thought to be rice then whatever, its my car, my money, and I have to live with my decisions. As for the bottle, it is not in there for daily driving so i am not to concerned.
