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


wow dat looks fockin nice.....nice job

of all da things i lost.... i miss my mind da most

The front end reminds me of the 7g so much. I really dont like the Euro Splitters but hell I think they would look great on your car, complete the look.


Either way looks great, I wanna try this out

Ay Shig! Why didn't you put these up for the Calendar? Those shots are by far one of the most amazing shots I have ever seen.

Because i don't think its good enough to be in the 6gc calender. There are many more other member's ride that are calender worthy.

A badger? gee thanks, i don't know if i should be hurt by you saying that or just feel insulted and deal with it.

Yeah, other people suggested a lip too but it didn't look clean with the current choice of lip. My original plan was with one on but dropped the idea since the prototype image on photoshop.
I currently have euro front splitters on now and still need to paint them and see if i like them like that, and am in the process of photoshopping other front lips onto the car.

but sadly, don't have the flexibility of money now. Just bought seats for the driver side not too long ago and spending money on my girl's 7gen to fix it.

I don't know if anyone responded about this already but instead of painting it black Toyota actually has inserts that goes into the teeth. Thats why one of my teeth is silver is because i found out there were covers on them. I've been meaning to take pictures of it. ( don't know if anyone has already done it yet though)

yeah i'm aware about the inserts for the teeths, someone mentioned them to me, but i decided to keep them silver for NOW. (still need to toss my options around)

i already have a photoshop version of the EUROU lip on the car. As of right now, i am 95% sure i am getting one, or try to get one. One concern is that it makes it look more like a genuine st205 and less the SS3/Gt-Four hybrid version hence loosing the "uniqueness". They look so similar that even members on here wont notice its a GT-III (my version of ss-four) conversion without someone telling them so.
as of the aeromajic, it was my first choice back last year when getting all the parts together. I didn't like the look, i thought i would but it just didn't click for me. I also did c-one lip too but that looked just oh so hideous.

i'm in the process of putting those photoshop jpeg up on my blog.

will post them here too after i get out of my lab

shig the euro lip for the gt4 and the preface look different, much smaller. you'd be the first. the magic lip is big itll look more aggressive if you like it that way.

thanks martin, coming from you is an honor. Well, another reason is that i never took the time to take pictures with the rims on it. If i were to submit the pictures to the calender, it would have to be with the advans on biggrin.gif

here's a link to my page where i introduced the options for the front lip in a timeline starting from last year
but i'll just run through the basics here:

here is a picture with the magic lip. I liked at first but the more i look at it the more i hated it


Then i decided to go with the EURO splitters:


but after doing the conversion, i notice that the front splitters are still to high compared to the skirts and it doesn't show very much. And people will suggest me to get a lip even thou i have these on (meaning they can't see them! too small! need to paint!! or change them!)

and before doing the conversion, i always liked the EUROU bodykit look
so i photoshopped them with the gt-four hood


I love the look and its my favorite out of the choices i have and i am almost certain that i will be buying this (or try to) lip anytime next year, but then again, compare it to the genuine gt-four

they are almost identical.

other issues are that if the lip will go too low compared to the skirts...
in that case i don't mind getting the EUROU skirts either but...

... i'm lost

I love the stance and the look of the 6g with the magic lip, I would defintaly get that to complete your look. But since you don't like it the last lip isn't a bad choice either.





Edit: Strange my post came out as a code

I don't think so shig, the lip shouldnt go lower either higher or equal. In fact just to let you know the toms lip i have is ~1.5" higher than my sideskirts. Thats why i assume the euro lip will be either equal or higher. But even if it was lower, its best to have the front the lower part of the kit rather than the sideskirts as you mentiond.
