Blitz front bumper (JDM style)
alright, i've done searches on here, on google, and on several different websites that sells kits for the Celica.

i just want to know if there is a legitamate source for buying a JDM-style Blitz front bumper (without having to get it from Japan).

check out Isaac's thread about theBlitz kit
if you scroll down, you can see that there are three types of the blitz kit: A-spec fiberglass, A-spec polyurethane, and the J-spec fiberglass version.

i've seen different online stores that sell blitz kits using either one of the A-spec or J-spec front bumper.

now the question is, does anyone know where i can buy a JDM-style front bumper?

this guy has it

the reason why im infatuated with the J-spec style blitz is that is doesnt have a big mouth like its A-spec counterpart and that it has a better curve.

compare this picture (of the A-spec) with the one posted above.

notice the holes on each side of the center?

on the jdm-style it is leveled like so:Linked Image

but on the a-spec its above it by a few inches like so: Linked Image

plus notice how big the middle hole is on both. i think the J-spec is more higher off the ground than the a-spec version.

What do you mean by a "legitimate source"? Because Blitz doesn't make a kit for the Celica, check their website.

oh, sorry for being vague.

by legitamate source i meant places like Henshin Auto or other factory websites.

i know there is no orginal source who produces the kit.

places where they have a history of good salemanship, ie vis, etc.

anything but ebay, becuase they tend to put any picture in their sales..

true true...

and if its in URETHANE, you can bet that its manufactured by APC and they are going with the US Spec style of looking large and being low (dificult to drive with)


here is the APC Blitz urethane... uninstalled

notice how it had to be held on since the fitment was rather "off" (check the headlight sections)
