So how close is the lowest part of the car to sitting on the ground when you drop it all the way? I say bag the Corolla next!

The lowest part of the car is the exhaust, its maybe a couple inches off the ground. However once my Eurou lip comes in that should sit very low as well.

Well I received my Wilwood BBK and man does it look nice. All tough I'm not a huge fan of the caliper color, so I decided to have that changed. I sent the rotors and calipers off to the paint shop. I wanted the calipers color matched to the car, I also have black Wilwood vinyls to install on them! I also had the rotor hats done a nice satin black, so they don't get rusty. Turned out really nice. hoping to install them tonight! My Eurou front lip will finally be here tomorrow, after test fitting that will be off to paint as well. Seat brackets are coming Thursday, but my Recaro seats are still a few weeks out kindasad.gif.
Here are some random pictures.

Thanks Bryanf.

Well I met with DHL yesterday to finally get my Eurou front lip, it has been a long time waiting.. Of course it was damaged, 3 long cracks, and 2 spots on the ends where chunks where missing... Really I could have repaired it seeing it was fiberglass but after spending over $600 on it I just was not in the mood. so i refused the shipment and am now contacting RHDJapan to see what we do from here. I really don't feel like waiting another 3 months to get a replacement that lets face it, will most likely be damaged also.. This sucks, not sure what i am gonna do for a front lip now.

that sucks. I hate when it goes like that.
same thing happened with my CF hood but I got a big discount on it because of that n it wasn't too bad so i kept it.

not sure if any of them are you style but you could do TRD splitters, TOM's lip, or C-ONE lip.

could you get by with sticking some 5mm spacers on them? or would that cause the wheels to rub?

No, a spacer would cause issues with the fenders.I'm not that concerned, that distance (hopefully) will never change so clearance is clearance biggrin.gif

I was thinking the same thing, a 5mm spacer just so then if for some reason you have play it won't hit but then that might shove the wheels out too much.

Thank you! There is currently 3mm of clearance wheel to caliper. I may try a 3mm spacer just to give it some extra room. We shall see:) finally got the brakes bled and good god, this thing stops violently (if you need it to). Very happy with how it feels, I can't wait to hit some AutoX events this summer! between the suspension and brakes this thing should do extermly well.
So far with my luck of getting parts damaged I'm not getting too excited just yet, but my TRD roof spoiler will be delivered today. So fingers crossed.

Not holding my breath on this but it maybe the end of the road with the celica. Just 3 days ago I had someone off me a lot of money for it, and it's enough to persuade me to let it go. I have been itching to get myself in a BNR32 and if this goes through that will be the direction I will go. I guess time will tell. In the mean time I have the car entered in the Tuner Galleria show in Chicago this Saturday. Anyone else gonna be there?

So decided to not let her go just yet. Really haven't got to complete what all I want to do to the car. Now it is time to focus on performance. As tempted I am to drop this build 7 bolt 4G63 in the car, I just think it will be a bit more then what I'm looking to. I have decided to take the easy route and stick to a 3sgte. I'm not positive just yet on the 205 or 215 engine, I plan on buying the swap, and building the motor over the course of this summer, then come next winter I will do the swap. I would like around 500whp, should be enough to have some fun. Many parts are going to be custom fabricated such as the down pipe, aluminum exhaust, I/C piping, turbo manifold ect.. I think I will be going with the FP Xona Rotor 65*64 turbo. Should be an interesting build. I'm looking forward to it.
As far as drive train I will be converting it to AWD, it is not a option in my book to keep the car FWD. How stout is the st205 Trans & Diff? Obliviously with going with a large frame T3 turbo the Trq numbers should hit soft and kept relatively low so that should help save the drive train regardless. Any input would be great.

What is the deal with people not knowing how to properly package items for shipping...

I hear the fourth gen is the way to go these days, but since you're wanting to do an AWD conversion as well getting a front clip with all the other parts needed for conversion together would probably be the way to go.
