    I also kind of never want to have to deal with rust again though, so there's that then...

    Awesome job.

    Hey thanks guys for the complements. As far as color schemes I have always wanted a blue TA22. I really like the OEM orion Turquoise metallic with the oem ST stripes.

    I found an add on the local Kijiji for a 2003 wrx turbo for a good deal. So my daughter and I went for the 2 hour drive to pick it up. We got to the guys house and it was so cool he had like 6-8 nice sports car parked on his drive way (multipul wrx's, an Evo, a Carlos sans celica etc) all in nice condition. I guess he is kind of a car collector. He showed me the turbo it was mint and no shaft pay. He also had the down pipe which I intend on using for the flange and welding a new down pipe to. I asked if he had an intercooler and he took me to his back yard garage which was full of cool car parts he pulled out a front mount evo intercooler. I purchased the parts and took my daughter for supper at Half Moon a really cool 1950's-1960's themed restaurant for supper at 9pm


    I know these motors are not worth much but having a spare motor and curiosity of what the motor will make with a turbo on it has got me excited.

    My daughter came to hang out with me in the garage the other day:

    So the last section of rust repair underneath the car:


    And the patch work begins:


    At this point I remembered that I had ordered some cut out parts off a 1974 celica from a member on 1stgencelica.com and realized I could probably make something work. So I trimmed up this section of the 1974 floor that I had


    Started some real life "photo shop" Took the measurements and cut out the old floor:

    Then the 1974 piece got welded in place:

    at this point with 1972, 1973, and 1974 celica parts welded into the car I was reminded of this song:

    got the inner rocker mounted up as well and was able to reuse the seat belt mounting bracket. The seat belt fits nicely too:


    The middle of the rear floor pan is rusted through and needed to be fabricated due to a leaky window and standing water:


    Time to disassemble for sand blasting the floors:


    Test fitting rocker panels they are going to need a little tweaking:

Follow the link to my channel for the latest on my projects. I will try to link future videos as they are released, but for now I encourage you guys to check out the channel I have a bunch of videos since I posted up last.

    Todays video is out for Project snake charmer. We are installing the 1990 miata suspension into the 1972 celica. frame rails and strut towers are fabricated to tie it all together. next week we are getting into mocking up the 2.3 ecoboost into the car.

    Yes, I am subscribed to your Youtube Channel. You are not scared to create new sheet metal for most of the car!
    It was neat to see how you mounted the Miata front end; you can do a lot more with a nearly blank canvas. I did look at installing the miata front suspension a few years back too but retaining the current frame rails, Strut towers and Engine didn't really workout as well as in the rear. I believe that the rear the performance increase was significantly greater than the front could provide. Keep cranking out the content!
