I just found this forum when a friend introduced me to the Toyota Owners and Restorers Club website.
I'm Jason from Boise, Idaho and I've had Toyotas all my life and always had a love for them. I started out driving an 82 Cressida with a 5M-E (The car that brought me home from the hospital when I was born). I briefly had a 98 Tercel until I purchased my 94 Celica GT. After 12 years I still own the 94 Celica GT and I'm in the process of restoring the body and interior, the engine and transmission are still great at 300k. Over the last few years, I've added a few more Toyotas to the collection. An 03 Celica GTS, a 99 Tacoma 4x4 SR5, and a family car, an 06 Highlander Hybrid.
I'm sure a lot of you go through this too, it is very hard to find body parts even for a Celica as new as a 94. I can't imagine what you all that have 70's Toyotas have to do. Any leads or feedback on where to find parts would be very much appreciated.
I just got the body repainted on the 94 Celica GT (ST204). The people who painted it didn't put the rear emblems back on in the right spot. Since there's no clips on the emblems it is hard to re position them back to the correct spots.
Does anybody out there have access to the body measurements from the factory that have the correct positions these emblems should be as if the car came right out of the factory?
