body kit cheat

hey, when you order a body kit, it usually comes in white without any colors right? if so, cant you install the kit and just leave it alone and not paint it if your celica is white? just a crazy thought...

yes you can. From a distance you cannot tell, but someone who knows about cars will notice it.

mine isnt painted yet and i still gets looks. and there is a big color difference. Carbon blue body with a white body kit?? well i dont mind some dont even have a body kit. dont worry it will be painted! but if you order it there might be some in perfections and it wont fit correctly or wont fit at all. i got mine installed by a body shop because if there is in perfections then they'll have to shave a little off. im still going to get it molded and painted because im sure it will look better than plan white. rice

yea...if you did that, it's just weird. The kit will not have any gloss or shine to it and the paint ususally protects it.

The two color scheme is umm how do you say thumbsdown cry
Be patient and have them paint and then install it...Trust me your Celi looks better stock one color than kitted with two colors... thumbsup

some put the kit on "unpainted" to wear it into shape...so then when painting it is perfect...cause sometimes painting it before hand, then installing it and letting it sit will wear the paint and crack it...but idk about that.

the only thing I would NOT do is install it and then drive it around without painting for a long time. You may get rock chips, pitting, etc. which will make it look like sh!t when you DO finally paint it
