Hey Kyle! Wow talk about a Merry Christmas, huh!? The car looks MUCH better....though I guess I need to make you a new signature now though, right? haha

Don't worry, I'm used to it. Not that many people notice, but I've gone through 6 variations for mine alone haha.


But yea, your car seriously looks like a little green demon now. It's freakin gorgeous. One concern though.. PLEASE find another car to drive while your paint cures. Salt from the snow storms outside will severely damage it!

yeah my parents are freaking amazing, i was coming home with my girlfriend from a trip to alabama for 2 weeks, i get home and open the garage door to go upstairs and i see this, i almost pissed myself i was so suprised, my parents and my grandparents were hiding down there waiting for me to get there and video taped the whole thing, im pretty sure i was jumping up and down and screaming like a teenagge girl, but hey its freaking awesome, the few thinks that were flaws with my car are finally gone now, and she is show quality, i love it, and am afraid to drive her lol

Haha, that's so nice smile.gif. I'm glad you had a great Christmas.

Regarding your paint, can you find out if they did a single stage enamel or a base/clear? That's important to know. The base/clear cures MUCH faster, but if they did what I did, and just did a really nice durable single stage enamel, than you're looking at 3 weeks minimum for cure time.. and that's in warm weather. Cold weather will make it go slower.

I chose single stage because white Celicas were done with that originally, so I wanted to keep it all the same. Your green color, like the red, is a base/clear. But it doesn't mean that's what they used to paint your hood and spoiler.

Either way salt and water for that matter are horrible for a curing paint job. It will not only discolor your paint (because it soaks into the curing paint) but it might actually chip off as well since the paint is weak. Curing paint is like a sponge. While 3 weeks is the magical mark for single stage enamel, 2 weeks is safe in non-road salt water. The best thing you can do is garage it, especially in weather such as this. I'd beg your gf to "cart your ass around" haha if I were you.

Anywho, it looks great and enjoy it.

Listen, I can tell you're proud of your modifications...but please put the correct car in your profile, you DON'T have an SS-III.

Having said that, nice progress. thumbsup.gif

Dude! I love your car man. You are really getting some where now. That color is freaking awesome. If you shaved off those front USDM fender lights on the side. It would look super sicker. Can't wait to see the SS-III lip kit on man. Awesome paint job too on the side skirts. You need to get some mud flaps. I've seen those rally mud flaps with the lip kit and it looks sex x4. I got my GT4 front end done. I'll send you some pics when it stops snowing every freaking day. Your car's color flow 100% with the 2k GTS Celica rims.

I agree with Ferdi.

If only you had a chance to drive a REAL SS-III (or a Celica with Superstrut & LSD conversion and a 200BHP 3S-GE motor) lol.

Try going 60mph around a hairpin in your ST or GT with your foot flat. LOL then come back and tell us it's an SS-III.

Sorry to kill your buzz but your bodykit doesn't make a GT into SS-III spec, but rather an 1998 facelift lookalike.

Just as though a Ferrari Enzo bodykit doesn't make an MR2 anymore than an MR2 Enzo lookalike, you'd be a laughing stock if you took such a thing to a Ferrari meet.

On another note, props for getting some OEM style extensions that I like, atleast you have taste smile.gif
