Awesome build mate! This is what I dreamed of doing back when I owned the celica!
Will be a super fun auto-x car. Will you do any circuit work?

Switch panel wiring is all done and ssme with the gauges now i just have to finish up the gauge pod. Get it 100% to shape and figure a way to mount it solid to the dash.

Ha! I don’t have the air ducts or blower fan working on the play car so I banged the oil pressure gauge in the blower bent beside the steer wheel. If I need another gauge it will go in one of those in the centre. I don’t have a radio so moulded up some Perspex, covered in CF wrap for that centre section. Be cool for auto cross to have a big arsed ( not legal) gps screen for direction change.. of course if you have time to read gauges you’re not driving hard enough.

Every gauge i have comes with a preset warning when it falls out of a range i say is acceptable. Im not half assing this build. If its not done correctly its not getting done to my car. Im building it to race not to fall apart and have gauges fall out of vents during a 2step launch on sticky tires

I built sandwich plates from Perspex that go either side of the vent and holds it under spring tension

There is a serious benifit to having all your gauges in one place. A quick glance will give you all the information you need to decide to push harder or take the next few corners easy and power out after.

I have to finish the gauge pod still but i tested all the wiring last night everything works properly. Ground signals are sent then they need to be and same with power from the switch panel.

Realised the powersteering pump return pipe was in the way of the turbo inlet.

Cut the tab and rewelded it. Isnt pretty vut itll work.

If i do a different turbo its going to change my piping thats my downside. I have to grind quite a bit to get it clocked where i need it

And I thought swapping my blown engine out was a pain in the ass. You sir are a legend! People on the facebook version of newcelica would love to see this stuff
