Next Mod Suggestions...

Alright the summer is comming in New England and I need a nice mod for the season. I need opinions...

1. -Kaminari Body Kit (Already have WW wing)
-JDM Sidemarkers
2. -Tanabe Springs (2" all around)
-Hotchkis Camber Links (I probably will need this right)
-17" or 18" Rev Wheels (Model: Open to suggestions but I have a few in mind.)

Pretty much tell me what you think... I'm leaning towards the body kit for three reasons... One because my rear bumper has suffered some damage from when I got hit while my car was parked, just a couple paint scratches though. Two because my wing will flow much better if I have a kit to match it. Three, I want to buy shocks when I buy my springs and I can't afford shocks, the springs and the rims.

I know everyone is going to say wheels and drop before kit... but try to factor in I hate looking at this scratch on my bumper and its pointless to fix it if I plan on slapping a kit on my car. Tell me what you think...

I like your ideas. The sidemarkes would look nice and also the drop with some good springs like you plan. I can not comment on body kits because I could not care less for a lot of money spent for no good reason other than looks (the Celica looks damn good as it is). The camber links aren't essential, but well needed. Tire wear and all that. Nobody seemed ever to comment on beefier construction over stock so I will. If that helps. 17" no bigger if into Performance or 18" light weight or not. Depends on if your into looks, then go 18" all the way. I like light weight either choice on size if you can.

Wheels dont worry about struts yet you will be fine. Is the scratch something that can be buffed out?

i'm one of the people that will say "wheels & drop b4 kit" and i can't help it.

however, you seem to be leaning towards a kit and that's still a very good investment--just don't wait too long b4 getting some new shoes for your celi.

kids w/out wheels don't look right. wheels w/out kits look fine. just something to remember.

Alright I'm doing a kit... I kind of wanted to do a VS-1 rear, because I saw a GT with a vs-1 kit and I still can't get over how great the rear bumper looks... I wanna get that but I don't know any other companies that produce skirts and front bumpers as low as VS-1. I don't want replicas so I was thinking maybe RMM front and sides to go with a VS-1 rear...

Opinions on RMM Front, RMM Sideskirts and a VS-1 Rear? ???

If you don't think this will work, how do you think Kaminari will look on my car (no drop, no rims and a WW Wing)?

I'd get rims before a kit, but if you must get the latter first then Kam would be a good choice...

Think this would be a good idea? Is it lower the VS-1?

Buddy Club 2 , it says it "fits like OEM", suggestions?
