Car Detailing: 2012 Toyota ViosTRD Sportivo Quick Detail

This car is been with her almost a year and even since she never really take good care of it beside taking it to the car wash. Scratches started to build up all over the car, especially from the car door handle. This might due to finger nail and also the from keys.

Does not have much time for detailing during this holiday hence I only managed to have a quick detailing just to remove those scratches from door handle. Hopefully you guys may bare with me that this is not a full detail or any professional job. This is just to remove those annoying scratches only.

Project Celica: New Shoes!!! New Shoes!!!

It's been a while since I updated something about my car. Thus during this long holiday, I went back to my hometown and tried to fit the new rim I bought earlier to my Celica. Before I made the payment to the rim, I did some studies on what is the best offset and width for Celica but a lot of the information were from the State and most of them running on coilovers and with camber set to fit their rims in. However for me, I prefer to have the camber set close to factory specification and I probably will running on low down spring for a while before I am able to convince myself to get a set of super strut coilover. So this is the reason why I mentioned earlier that I want to try fit the new rim to my car as I'm worry that the offset and the width do not suit Celica.

My rim comes in 2 different specifications. 18x9 ET30 for the front and 18x9 E20 for the rear. Let me explain why 2 different offsets in the first place. As you might not know that the rear of the Celica will sunk a little if running on same offset with the front. So this drive me to get a different offset for the rear to avoid this. By the way, Celica originally run on a set of 16x6.5 ET39 rim all around. Since there is about 2.5 inches increase of width, this make me worry about the rim will hit the inner wall of the wheel well and also the absorber.
