Gettin either a 2004 GTS

Sup Ya'll? This is my first post here, so HOLAAAA!

If you haven't guessed already from the title, I'm definitely getting a GTS after I sell my 98 Tacoma. But, I have a few questions, which may have already been asked here, so sorry in advance.

First set of questions: Body Kit
1. What material would you recommend? Fiberglass?
2. I live in California, thus speed bumps like mad. How many inches does the front piece need to be off the ground out here?
3. How much does installation/paint cost if I have someone install it for me?

Second: Sound
I just want to know what deck you would suggest, I've got the rest of the system pretty much decided on.

Also, anything else I should keep in mind for the Celicas?

Thanks guys!

[edit] The Fiberglass link feature is nice. What forum system are you guys using? I'm a mod at a music forum and I might bring this feature to the attention of the other admins there.

Definitely go with a Urethane kit.
Paint & install could run about $1000 or a bit more.
There are way too many decks out there. Mine is Pioneer. Check profile.

Thanks for the help everyone!

Yeah, I've been leaning towards Urethane, but I also really love the looks and reputation of the Kaminari kit. What's the difference between Urethane and Polyurethane?

HELL YES! on the mp3 deck, definitely getting one of those. Lemme rephrase the question, since there are sooo many decks out there and they all seem quite nice: what brands should I stay away from in terms of reliability/longevity, features, etc.?


So, how many inches does the car need to sit off the ground out here in California w/ speed bumps and all?

or get one that plays dvd's if you have a dvd burner or a friend with one (i have a dvd burner and i love it) if you had a dvd player in your car, you could play a ton of songs on your deck...or get a reg system with a 10 changer (thats what i have) tape up front and 10 changer in the trunk mounted on the back side of the back seats...

Urethane is the same as Polyurethane. Just shorter spelling.
