Nice build, but I gotta ask, what's the ring hanging from the back for?

Its a Japanese thing traditionally seen on Bozosuku cars

Just an FYI, the "rear deck" is a roll out cargo cover on the real cars and not a fixed package tray. The rear speakers were mounted in recessed nooks to the outside of the rear seat passengers. The hard cover in the hard cover in the kit is probably a concession to motorization, but the blue paint looks great on the LB body style.

Hey Robert that's a subway handle. It was sorta the cool thing to do, to use them as tow hooks. Frank is right about it being a japanese trend. Thanks man for your comment.

I know what you mean but... I owned a 78 celica way back in the day and I had a plywood cover in place of the vinyl cover to mount my additional speakers in. Thanks, I was unsure about the color at first but I was happy how it turned out.
