you need to contact your Toyota dealership or another paint shop for the exact color of paint that you need. I believe that Toyota sells the tins of thier paint for about $44 each.

7th Gen Celica color codes can be found at..

If your kit is Polyurethane, the paint needs to be mixed with a catalyst so it will bond to the polyurethane... When using a polyurethane paint, strain the paint prior to mixing the catalyst. (your painter should already know this part though happywink )

but even before your aftermarket body kit parts are painted (no matter what they are made of), you'll need to primer them.

Check in your yellowpages for a paint supply store under the automotive section.
And unfortunately Toyota does not sell or supply tins of paint smaller than a .5 oz bottle of touch up paint.

a .5 oz bottle of paint probably will not be enough to paint an entire lipkit wtf
