In February, after teaching me to drive a standard shift, Jeremy bought me a fantastic 5-speed 1981 Celica Liftback for $900.00.
The interior was in great shape for its age, but the burnt orange exterior, while really interesting, had definitely seen better days.
So for this summer’s trip to Florida, Jeremy and my Dad-in-law Ray had arranged for the car to be painted.
I had some colors in mind, but still deliberated over a paint sample book for a good two days. In the end I decided on a two-tone design with champagne and teal/peacock blue. Jeremy suggested adding a lighter teal pinstripe too.
Taping off the champagne stripe:
Taking off the tape once the blues have been applied:
After about a gallon of clear coat, it’s SHINY!
Almost finished…just needs some details put back on, the windows tinted, and the door jambs painted.
I LOVE MY CAR!
