Interior Modifications

The Dash

Modifying the dash has to be one of the simplest things I have done to the car. It can really bring the interior of the car bang up to date. I got a blue LED dash conversion from a member on the forum and I had the dash sprayed by a bodyshop. I wanted to bling the dash up a little bit so I made some shiney knobs in work along with some other stainless bits and bobs. The heater dials I got online. The Greddy boost gauge stood out like a sore thumb so I sold that on in favour of an HKS gauge. It was the same size but had a black background and lit up blue. Nothing much else to say really, I will let the pictures do the talking. I have now dumped the HKS boost gauge in favour of a triple A-Pillar pod with new Digital gauges.

Glovebox Install

Just about finished with the dash now, just a bit of minor trimming to be done and it is finished.

Leather Seats & A new Steering Wheel

Finally got the seats & steering wheel sorted out. Recaro Speed in Ambla Leather and an IS200 Steering wheel with Toyota badge. Last picture is the OEM Recaros being boxed for the loft.

Even though the Recaros are my favourite seats, I just couldn't live with them. They are too narrow for my frame and they sit too high for my height. It was at this point I decided stock was the way forward for me so I bought myself a set of stock cloth seats and had them retrimmed. Pictures in the car to follow, I need to wire the seats in due to the drivers side being electrically adjustable.



Wheely Nice

I also got the chance to buy a Celica Gen7 wheel so I jumped at it. Pics of the old wheel next to it and the new wheel on it's own. Next in line will be a TRD badge.

When I found out one of the members was working on a dual colour PCB design for the dash I asked if it would be possible to have the colours change at the redline. The answer was an emphatic yes and with that I placed my order. The outcome is the following.


TRD Time

Managed to get the TRD badge sorted.




I've always thought about getting an electronic boost controller but I kept on putting it off. One came up that took my fancy so I jumped at it. Now installed and working a treat. As you can see from the pictures it fitted in the RHS air vent perfectly.
