Body Kit, Front Bumper Attachment Locations - Pictures

Body Kit Front Bumper Attachment Locations
By Isaac DeCoursey @ EverythingCelica.com

As with MOST body kit pieces, this should be installed by a professional - but I've posted these photos for anyone who is curious as to how/where the install points are located. These photos should be helpful in answering most of your questions.

The thing with the black handle is a "multi-tool wrench" with a 10mm socket attachment attached to it.

Insert and 10mm wrench on the bolt head. Use your 10mm socket tool to turn the nut.

When re-attaching, you may want to have flip the nut/bolt direction to whatever direction is easiest for you. Personally, I keep the nut at the bottom.

I have also come across a few newer Celica models which have switched from the bolt/nut attachments to a bolt/plastic-retainer. If this is the case for your setup, only a 10mm socket is needed.
