Need some help...
Ok i'm doing as many little things as i can to make my celica look bad ass. I'm gonna paint my brake calipers and my engine covers. But I don't know what color. I know i'm gonna paint my calipers red. But what about the engine covers? I have a blue celi. I like StreetPrototype engine. I like the color blue he used. Help!

The blue engine stuff would look nice. Red for the calipers might be a tad too glaring. I like a more sinister look myself. Go with a flat black for the calipers.

do you have the spec blue or carbon blue?
As for cheap exterior mods, I recommend a S2K antenna, that helps clean the look. There are overlays if you are into accent colors on your celi, or headlight covers. You could also get tinted windows.

Here are my engine plastics on my spec blue celi.

I wanna paint my calipers red b/c it'll show off more and black you won't see and i dont like white. Then for the engine i was gonna paint it red b/c im doing my calipers that color, but i dont like the red w/ carbon celica look.I'm not sure what to do. Do they have to match? I like a light blue color for the engine but anything other than red for calipers doesnt seem practical.
