Hey all!

Looking for a GT4 ST205 nose cut with all parts out of the box to perform a front-end conversion (including hood).
Silver preferred as that's my car's original color.

LHD hood latch would be a nice bonus so I can swap that out (in case the clip is RHD)

Located in the southeast but can discuss shipping.

Your white conversion looks cool, slavie!
I think I'll hold out for silver for a bit before biting the bullet on an expensive paint job, however.

Modified hood latch is fine if it's a weld, until I can get my hands on a genuine LHD hood latch.

Interested in the front end if you can ship to Cali. If you can put it on a pallet I can arrange a trucking company to pick it up. Lmk!

Would be cool to do a drop-off deal, or (if not too far) meet half-way.

Any color is ok as long as no damage.
Prefer projector headlights, but not necessary.
Working fogs.
Modified (weld) or OEM 205 LHD hood latch.

Don't mean to discourage you or anything, but in the 5 years that I was following the GT4 front end listings (purchased one myself, too), I have not seen one that matches your requirements.
The last one - yellow set on eBay - sold 5/19 for $1500 very quickly, had busted low beams, no fogs/lower grill, and enough scratches and dents to require minor body work and repaint. And, they are ALL like that or worse: by the time the car is written off in Japan, chopped up, thrown in a container with wheels, tires, and other car parts, it does not come out pretty on the other end. Nobody is wrapping this stuff and handling it with white gloves.
Projector headlights now seem to be going for $650-$700 a set in good condition. I sold mine for $450 last year.
As for modified hood latch: I have never seen an OEM LHD one for sale. The stuff from Europe is all rusted into oblivion by now, along with LHD ST205 steering racks. Converted RHD one can only come from somebody who modified it themselves, and I may have seen 1 for sale in 5 years. You're pretty much going to have to make one yourself.

Hope this helps, and good luck with your search.

Makes a lot of sense slavie.
If I need to be patient, flexible, and do some custom work that's fine.

I've been keeping my eye out for a long time and you're right.
Searched many Eastern European shops for that hood latch, even came close once.
And I did see that yellow one go.
As I was looking up how to replace the foglight grill (they were missing as you said) someone else bought it.

There's a silver engine clip with body parts for sale in HK, listing still active, but my local shop advised me not to go for it on my own.
They're keeping an eye out for me in case one of their yards in Japan get something.

Actually had a private seller last week, agreed to his asking.
Beautiful clip, had everything, in the US.
Then talked delivery, never heard from again.
(I hadn't paid yet so I'm good.)

Thanks for your feedback man.

Anything from japan will not come perfect, especially large parts. I bought Slavies gt4 front end and can appreciate the amount of time and effort he put into packaging every single item.. And I can also see why he wont ever ship another front end lol...the last time I saw a gt4 front end they were asking for 1800 without a fender. It's getting ridiculous and they're becoming harder and harder to find...and when you find them it's not cheap.

Good luck on your search brother!

Download "WhatsApp" on your phone or use the browser, I got my front end from the 6gc group on there for $1200 shipped and same color as my Celica. It was $200 for the hood and $400 for the front bumper w/ Fog lights $600 shipping from Russia, came in after 2 weeks.
