What would look best?
Sorry to ask so many questions but summer is coming well i gotta do something to my car.

ok i still have a stock 2002 Celica GT Auto frown so basically i would like to make it all show no go smile
What size tires(16,17,18?), and what type of rims would look good on liquid silver celica, i am very fond of shiny rims just not sure which would look best with silver, also like the looks of something like the VOLK LE28N or oz racing superleggra and that type of look in rims (how much might it cost). and what type of drop would look good ( cost?)?

And would blue led neon underbody kit(has sequence functionality) look good? or not?, should i do it or not?

and where can i find the kit to turn the gauges blue the leds and the overlay and radio and everything in BLUE LED.

Oh also what to paint the interior pieces, silver or blue(cost?).


live for a moment die for a lifetime as long as i know i lived

Go with 18" wheels. Get whatever style you want. Personally I do not like the chrome look.
As for a drop, it depends on if you are going with a bodykit. Without the kit or a kit such as TRD and WW I recommend Eibach sportlines, with a kit go with the Hotchkis drop.
I hear that the LED underbodies look funky. I would go with more of a neon glow like StreetGlow.
Painting the interior, you can do this yourself for under $20. If you take it somewhere, it all depends on where you go. You would have to shop around your area.

Hope that helps.

Here is a pic I just took. Just installed some Hochkis springs. Very satisfied with the drop, 2 finger gap front and back. The ride is a little more harsh but I can get used to it. Also have 18" konig verdicts

The neons are cool. Like street said, don't over do it. Do underbody and underdash, and maybe under the seat. thumbsup

I agree, 18's and Hotchkis', TRD's or Eibachs'. 18's look a bit better with the large wheel well of the Celica. Also, go with a normal underbody neon kit, such as the StreetGlow Gold Series Underbody Neons. Also, as aforementioned, TheHammer from TeamCelica.com has a great deal on LEDs for your gauges.

If you don't mind me mentioning, I'm not a huge fan of blue on silver (sorry Karrion, you're ride still looks phat though), you may look into getting red on silver. It's your car and it is up to you!
