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






What did you use to mold the parts together? did you add any support on the back?

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!)

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 that old skool pic of my car haha. but see why i changed out my splitters? both types even? I needed a full lip solution. The splitters are never level with the skirts or to the front to the side and never complete.

this is what have happened since the last post.

Some things i had laying around for over a year and through out last year and this past few weekend, i have installed just about everything i had pilled up.


1. I finally got around to taking off the bumper and switching out my hi beam's rubber


2. Painted the euro front splitters to silver


3. Got center caps for my advans


4. Installed TRD steering wheel from an ae111


5. Installed TRD quick shift v.2


6. Visited my parents and friends in japan, came home with Laile Beatrush F/R strut towers



7. Finally got my seat rails which took forever, I put in the brixII seat




only thing left is to wash my car... only one car wash this year thumbsdown.gif

Thanks man, i'm currently try to get all the interior panels skinned with cf without the polisher to get the matt-dry look.

Nice Shig!

I can't wait to see the car again... We'll have to go out for a drink when I get home from school.

Did you keep the TRD rears? I think that a profile shot is in order.... Get out there and wash the car! smile.gif

Got a deal because I directly went to their engineering facility and told them i'm bringing it back to america so for the front + rear i got them for just under $300. initial cost would have been in the $500 range since laile is the sister company of c-one.

I never had trd rears, they were ss-iii rears.
I was gonna wash the car last week but i dont drive it anymore and the girl's car was in need of a major bath.

yeah, call me up when you're in town.

My new wallpaper. GOODNESS that reflection looks amazing. Great progress man! I'm really loving the rims! One question, what paint did you use for the Euro splitters? I want to paint mine soon and I'm not sure what to use.

It feels good to know there is someone out there using my picture and car for their wallpaper, thank you.
I used a spray can from automotivetouchup.com. They have the paint code for our cars. The paint is a little off do to my original pain faded with sun but results are pretty decent.

Thanks!
Yeah, a lot of my car buddies HATE silver with a passion. They say its not a sports car color. (Who said a celica is a sports car? tongue.gif )
Love black, it makes our car look so much better but they fade over time and swirl marks are so visible with black. I was thinking about repainting it black but then i would have to paint the door hinges, engine bay, and all the hard to get places that i won't be able to do myself. I want it to be a "complete" paint job (since i don't want the ghetto paintjob where only the outside is painted black and when you open the door all you see is silver...)
White is nice if i had a full kit on and also white gets dirty easily. I'm not at a place where i can give frequent car washes to make her look sharp.
Red? I have a friend that drives a red integra and he's always competing against me so i would try to stay away from red lol.

Reason why i'm repainting the car silver:
Even when the car is dirty. it looks clean.
No extra paint needed for engine bay, door hinges, etc.
I'm repainting it to a Lexus silver so it should SHINE. (yes all CAPS)
