I have been using these seats on my 2g first because they are lighter than DSM seats, also because they look pretty cool and they aren't that wide or tall as most of the aftermarket racing seats, finally I got an extra set on a local junkyard so time to get them installed on my Colt, I was able to use the Celica seat rails with some relocation for the brackets also making some holes wider, Colt seat belt locks are in the original location and my next goal is install the bottom seat belt clip as they fit on the oem colt seats...

Wow, those look great! I see I'm not the only one that roams the Junkyards to see what all can be adapted to fit these little things.

Thanks, You can find these seats on 00-05 Toyota Celica and they have available some color combos for cloth like red/black, blue/black, gray/black and black or gray leather...

Me too, they just fit with the rest of the interior so well. Wonder if the red/black combo ones would look good with the pimp red interior on the 3g? :lol:

Did you have to clean those or anything or did you just get extremely lucky and find a nice set?

My wife cleaned them for me, they were a little bit dirt but the carpet washer did well, no big rips or tears on these just a couple of cigarette burns

Ok guys here's some more detailed pictures about the Celica seats installation with their own rails:

First we have the passenger side as example, here is the front hole close to the center console and as you can see in the picture I had to make it wider:
Image
Door side front hole, here you have two choices either make a custom bracket as I did here or custom weld bracket as I did on the driver side, both will work good, btw in order to be able to turn the hole bracket, You will have to remove the factory spot weld with a drill bit as you can see in the picture then just some small hits with the hammer and you should be able to turn it around as I did here:
Image
Driver side with custom weld bracket
Image
Door side rear hole, as you can see again you have to make it wider in door side direction, in that way you will get a straight alignment for the seat
Image
Image
Finally the center console side rear hole, make sure to take off this bracket from your old CSM seats (it is the only one that can be unbolted), make the bracket hole wider in the center console direction, this will help to put the seat far from the center console then you have to delete the Celica hole bracket from this side, drilling both of the pins from this bracket and the center spot weld will do the job, now you just mount the rail over this bracket and you can either weld it or leave it as is (as I did)...
Image
Now the Seat Belts, rid of the plastic covers from this section of the Celica seats, remove the Celica seat belt lock then install the CSM ones in the same direction as they were on the original seats:
Image
Image

Hope this helps in case you find a nice set of these, I like them because they look pretty sporty and they aren't that expensive as Evo Recaros...

Last Friday I painted my GT side skirts, spoiler and lip, bought all my paint stuff on napa and I guess they did good job matching the paint...

Installing the spoiler

Image
Full GT Body kit finally Installed :rock:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Definitely this kit completely changes the look of these cars, if I'm excited about how this change looks, how excited I would be with a jdm/edm body kit? :rolleyes:
Image

btw this week I got my muffler finally installed :partyman:

Those GT pieces look awesome on there, great job! I love the amount of time that you've put into this thing. It doesn't even look like the same car.

So, the tailpipe no longer clips peoples shins, as they walk by and are being blinded by the awesome shine coming from that restored/fresh paint? :wink:

Looking great! Can't remember, did you buff the original paint or get it repainted?

Thanks guys for all of your comments

Still original paint, I got pretty good polish from Mexico and it does awesome results as long the clear coat still salvageable, after the shine comes back you just wax it once in a while, if clear coat it's already peeled then will bring shine to the paint but it will fade quick eventually...
