New Mods - Check It Out!

Here are a few minor mods I did to my celica this weekend. 1st mod was putting some yellow carbon fiber vinyl under my door handles & on inserts on TRD spoiler. 2nd mod was installing door yellow fabric inserts over existing red & black ones. I wasn't happy with the ones I bought @ celica store. Yellow felt was patchy & could see through in some areas. Let me know what you think?

I got fabric at JoAnn Fabrics, great deal - $2.10 for 6 feet. Took me 3 stores before I got the color to match. The vinyl is not Bat's. I work in the sign industry & have access to all sorts of different vinyl.

i like the door inserts they match your yellow very well... however the door handle and wing over lays seem fuzzy, whats the over all look of your car? maybe they match better overall, but in those select areas i do not think so

My car was originally absolutely red, got into a minor accident & decided to have my body shop repaint it yellow. Everything was painted except engine bay & under trunk carpet. Cost for prep & paint ran me about $5,500, another $1,800 in body part mods & $1,200 in rims & tires.

You don't have to remove doors or even the existing inserts. All you have to do is cut your fabric about 1/2" bigger the the pattern that you make from the door insert. Then take a butter knife & start @ one end & push fabric over existing panel with an even amount of overhang all around. Smooth out fabric with other hand as you work around perimeter. Becareful as you probably already know the plastic scratches easily. Hope this helps.

I picked yellow because there are tons of celica around here. Wanted to stand out from the crowd & I've always wanted a yellow car. Also a graphic designer in the sign business, yellow is the most versatile color for doing vinyl graphics. Some people may not like it but I love the color.

STFU...my point was that everybody has their own opinions. i think your exhaust is ugly. a big can with a small can attatched to it is what it looks like to me. people have DIFFERENT fucking opinions. get that through your head. you always say bad shit about everyt mod people post (and yes, i know you didnt say anything bad about this person's mod, so dont be a smart ass and say "well i never said anything about this guy's mod)
