body piece opinions...

ok...here's the deal...I made a buddy at a body shop (I'm doing some legal work for him, so he said he'd hook me up with whatever I need)...here's what I've got already that's not been installed: Carbon fiber roof scoop, Carbon Fiber wind splitter, and Carbon Fiber Hood Scoop. I've got a solar yellow 03 GT, and I think I'm gonna play with the body because I've finally got the hook up (and I've seen pics so I know he does good work)... I really like the 03 stock front bumper, so no matter who says what, that's staying...I'm thinking about going X-1 fenders, extremor side skirts, and either TRD, bomex, or veilside rear...tell me what you think, or make suggestions..thanks

Cool. I dont think the front will flow because the rest of the car will be lower. After your finished youll notice it to and want to change the front..IMO anyway

My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

yeah, he's right. stock bumper has to go, and if not, get a lip for it.

Get the C-One lip. Is that who makes the '03 lip?

that's my only problem is that I don't know who makes a lip for the 03's...I looked at the revmotion, and RMM, but am not sure if they will fit...The wind splitter and canards may help dress it up a bit, but I konw what everyone is saying as far as it looking a little off due to the ground clearance...its on 17's right now, and is gonna be dropped soon so maybe that will help. I also thought about the TRD elegante front lip confused, but haven't really seen pics...if anyone knows a front lip for the 03's then let me know...

TRD and C-One make some..but they are in Japan...

just get a new front or swap for an 00-02 front, then get a lip..

don't keep the stock front with the rest of the kit on. thumbsdown

yeah, maybe I'll go with the extremor front too...I just don't like the extremor back...should I go bomex, TRD lip, or veilside for the ass?!??...I was going to change the wing, but I wanted a flat style drag wing, and the only one they make for the celica looks like shit, and is heavy as balls...I'm trying to get opinions because I can get the front, sides, and rear for somewhere between $600 - $850 (ex girlfriend has a crazy 3000 GT VR4 with crazy sponsors, and has introduced me to all of them), and my body shop guy quoted me like $1000 for the fenders, sides, rear, and roof scoop if I do it all at once, since I'm doing work for him...input???

i belive ur car CAN look very nice by mixing n matching the pieces.also it'll b unique for someone to have a body dat noone else has.b4 i got ma car i wanted TRD front and da wing,extremor sideskirts,veilside rear,but i knew i couldnt afford to get a body n paint them while im paying ma car payments so i just got the whole TRD kit thumbsdown (it aint original)

it can...but most don't...

that's why keep the sides and rear the same and front different...some people do NOT know how to match, that's the problem. I'm not against it, what do you think was on the front of my celica before? I didn't care what people thought, I liked it and thought it matched...i'm just saying to make sure he gets something that actually flows. grin

hard for me to come up with one working around that stock front bumper. for me, that's usually the first piece to go. i'd try and stick with something not too eccentric, perhaps kaminari, TRD, or rmm.
