First i wanna say thank you to Martin (Malpaso) for his support. I had plans of doing this before but never had the funding and a problem with the seller in UK for a long time. And then Martin completed his SS-Four bumper and by looking at his pictures, it solved all the probems i initially had. tongue.gif Thank you Martin, you the man!

So i finally got the bumper from UK after many complaining and off i go to the body shop where i used to work during the summer






I got paint and body stuff for a cheap price since i was their best prep guy they had biggrin.gif

For some reason, the grill didn't lineup perfectly... but not noticeable

The things i still need to do (exterior wise):
1. Paint the bumper "teeth" back to black
2. Paint my UK splitters silver
3. Exchange the high beams seal because i "accidentally" painted over them
4. Put the rear ss-III splitters on after paint
5. Getting my rims in about a month or so (and tires)









Do you think i should paint the bumper "teeth" back to black? I'm kinda getting used to it being painted...

C&C welcomed

Gorgeous , is that a stock celica colour? it looks amazing, ss-four all the way !! Your photography skills are amazing too !! The teeth i dont know, i think it will look good either way, tho i do like your foggies yellow, gives it a massive jdm feel. What rims are you planning on going for?

That looks killer, I always wondered when somebody would do it with the preface. Why don't you get the teeth covers. It'll look much cleaner. what about putting the little rectangular vents towards the bottom of the front grill in between the mouth and the grill. Good job though, much props

that looks great.. i like how it still maintains the curvy elements of the celica, not as aggressive as the gt-four but looks more serious just with a modest face. i'd keep the front splitters black..

Yeh keep the eurou splitters black, I like how you relocated the license pate. Did you do some modding on the front bumper too the area along the bumper repeaters to where the stock license plate seems alot more flatened...

That is sexy as hell! I see another unique master like Malpaso here! That is so damn sexy! Only addition I can think of is making maybe a custom grill and taking out those middle pegs? But even with, it looks really good. I am really liking what I see.




Nevermind I see it is already pretty much done! I love it!

Wow... I must say that is amazing work. I'm glad I had chance to help. It looks so different! And you are right it looks good as it is. In this picture looks simply unbelievable:



Definitely agree with painting those Euro splitters silver. But I'm not sure about "teeth". It looks really good this way...

btw.: what about clear front turns and fender lights? (sorry I do not know how you call those outline amber lights in US smile.gif)


--------------------
No more replicas... This is evolution... This is SS-four :)

looks really nice, I think I side with Malpaso on the leaving the "teeth" silver.
bumper to fender needs to be blended, looks like the silver shades are off.

Thank you everyone for such nice comments biggrin.gif

whatthe: Yeah, its the stock silver. I did clay bar my car prior to taking these pictures. Plus the lights in the garage brings out a little blue tint to it. And about the rims I am getting a set of ADVAN RCII 17x7.5J +35 in silver. The flatened out bumper in the front is explained below wink.gif



trdproven: The rectangular holes was the main part of the st204 bumper that was throwing off the alignment so that is why i had to eliminate that part.
Actullay trdproven, i used your picture to make a photoshop image of this concept lol thanks, you had the UK splitters with preface, side skirt, 17in rims and the exact angle i was looking for.



malpaso: i couldn't of done it without you! The front turn signals, i want to keep them amber so it will look more stock (plus finding clear bumper lights are hard for the preface celica) but i might consider the fender lights wink.gif

vincent_doggy & playr158: Yeah i have like 3 to 4 shades of silver on my car right now as well as 2 different vin numbers BUT i am planning to go BLACK or a LEXUS SILVER in couple years so till then this will do

Shig, you made my car look good, why couldn't you photoshop it into real life. JJ. Im gonna use that pic and tell my friends thats my car now. haha I was about to say those rims look like mine until i looked at the background. But indeed the grill and the hood makes a huge difference - changes the look entirely, you put the preface bumper to good use.

Thanks luke! Yeah i think i should paint the splitters too but there are some ppl saying to keep it black. I'm considering both right now. We'll see we'll see... leaning towards painting them like you said

Your car is already really great wink.gif One of cleanest ones out there. There was something about it that attracted me to your car.

I say paint the splitters shig because its not like its a lip they are seperated, plus when I painted mine because I ran it black for a lil bit, it looked more better, it becomes part of the car.
