Got any more info on what's required to make it fit? I too need a rad soon and want to get something that's easier to source

Man, getting parts for our cars sure is harder now cause of covid.

The dealer couldn't get me any wiper blades that fit without modification... thankfully though I found those on RockAuto... but they only had a few left.

I still can't find a right rear brake caliper for my GTS. It sucks...

I have an old radiator that's been sitting in storage for 7 years or so. Have no clue if it's good though... and I'm also in Canada so shipping any distance won't be cheap.

I couldnt find a rear caliper either i did
get a new piston so i rebuilt the caliper for the convertible   then used the piston from the convertible to rebuild the project gts. I was able to get a remanded caliper for the drivers side.
Btw ya it sucks trying to ship stuff in and out of Canada.

I can live with the gas prices but finding celica parts around here is next to impossible
