Ahh ok. So there you go. I thought there was something about the TRD 3-point and the intercooler, but at the same time I remembered there was one that would clear. Though at the same time, be careful in the future not to pay more just because it's a "GT-Four" or "SS" part when a regular GT had the same thing.

I say you got a good deal then. The rear strut bar was exclusive to the GT-Four though I want to say, so of course it'll be more expensive.

Yeah tell me about it i got mines for 90 bucks and it came with the leather protector. But I'm not doing nothing to that one since it got that leather feature.

So today i finally got around to sand my Front strut bar since its color got faded and it had some rust spots on it. Here are some pics to show the rust spots:





So after a while of work and dedication it looks like this:
I used 80 grid sand paper.






I still gotta figure out how to get to the hard to reach spots so i can get rid of the rust on both ends of the bars any suggestion let me know. smile.gif

Finally i painted my front strut bar first i applied black antirust paint on it:


It dried out and it look like this:


To make it more custom and unique i decided to paint a design on it:

I made templates of the 6Gen Celica dragons out of vinyl and painted over them in red:



This is how it looks install in my engine bay:


A pic of my rear strut bar too:


Since i got in the mood of painting decided to paint the headers cover too:



And the next day i got my splitters:
