Body Kit issues...help!
I might have asked this before but...i'm trying to get my kit installed this week...anyways.

I have a replica TRD front lip...and I'm wondering

- Does it fit OVER the stock lip?

- Does the stock lip come off or is it part of the bumper (hehe i.e. is it a lip or not?)

I know i've seen pics of this some where...just can't find it.

thanks wave

just pring the parts out to your car... it will be EXTREMELY OBVIOUS what needs to be done... place your replica parts where you think they should go - if they dont fit, then guess if you would need to remove parts to make them fit. if you still dont see how they would fit after doing this - than you might have parts that just wont fit your car wtf

If you are curious about what a replacement from lip looks like - check this link...

But as far as I know - every TRD/TRD-REPLICA/WINGSWEST front lip just attaches over your current front lip - nothing to remove... they are just extensions thumbsup

Perfect example of what Im talking about...

This guy had his WingsWest/TRD front lip damaged... so he just cut the center part out, exposing the factory Celica standard front lip cool

Unless your new lip has these notches on it... I prolly wont stick to your car.
These notches determine whether the lip goes over your current setup with a few self tapping screws and some doubled sidded tape - or if it used the current hardware already on your bumper and attaches to factory stock locations.
