not a fan of flames.

that said..those are the best flames i've ever seen..they flow nicely and i like how they dont' contrast too much.

and i LOVE the overall color of the car..that orange is sure to grab attention and get you mega points in any show you enter thumbsup

gap is in the Hood b/c the front clip isnt even bolted on yet ... just put in place to snap the pic!!!

Total cost of paint job i would estimate at $5000.
i am lucky b/c i manage a body shop at a dealership and all the paint was given to me free by our local supplier.
i live in PA and if you were to stop in and ask for something similar it would be roght around 5g's.

Great paint job! Flames are really hard to pull off nicely on a car, specially the celica. I think this was a very professional job, nicely done!

This could have easily gone both ways but it gets a thumbsup

I usually don't like cars in orange, however, that color is really eye catching and awesome! I think the flames make it look good because it's not too intrusive, if the flames weren't there it would look a lot different I think.
