JBing, I thought it was a reasonable price too, considering they guarantee a factory finish or they'll do it over again.
I saw my car today out in the daylight though, and although its not polished up yet, the paintjob seems to be first class. Its been moved to Toyota for the leather on the seat to be stitched, and even the head of repairs in Toyota said the job they've done on the bodywork is impressive. When it came in he didn't even realise the side of the car had been ripped to pieces.
Coincidentally there was a Celica there with a Veilside EC1 body kit and it had had a silver pearl respray, which reflected a purpley color from certain angles. IMO it looked SHIT! I wasn't that impressed with the body kit either. Theres probably only a handful of Celicas in the country with the kit, which would make my Celica unique, but it looked cheap and toy-like.
I'm gonna stay away from OTT kits like Veilside. Any opinions on what to go for? Theres a Celica on this site with a TRD
kit on 19s in a custom red and theres a picture of it on APRs website. I think something like that will be my aim.
For now though I'm gonna just drop it on a nice set of split rim 18s and sit back and cringe as my insurance premium goes through the roof.
