Test fitting the parts! Not for modem users?

Did a test fitment of all the parts tonight. It was pitch black outside, so the only shots I could get was from inside the garage. Here they are...

How far the front tyres stick out

Rear tyres...

Both tyres smile

Wingless...

Rod millen lip

Wing!

Last one..

YES, I KNOW THE CAR IS DIRTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)))))

Anyways - I was mad pleased about how it looks. And, yes, it will have an exhaust, lowering springs etc. This was just a quick test to see how one side of the car would look.

The wing will be shortened about 3-4cm, and brackets made to hook it up to the trunk lid. I wasn't planning on mounting it solid to the car smile

Here's a shot I took this summer, of the car with the lowering springs mounted. Will try to use the same ones, but I fear the car will be too low...

The fenders will be widened to cover the tyres.

A seibon Carbon Fiber invader Hood will also be mounted.

And, ofcourse, I will not glue anything on - I will drive around with electrical tape. Or...maybe not.

They're not new. It's still the same old 8,5x19" ET30. But with 2,5cm (about 1") wide spacers smile I can't afford new rims right now, so spacer's are the only way I can get the look I want.

But new wheels will come, as soon as I can afford it.

We taped everything onto the car and mounted the tyres with spacers to see what needs to be done. The actual work on the car will start around febuary. Everything you see in the pictures is just taped loosely on.

The middle section of the rod millen front lip sticks too far into the bumper, so it hits the oem grill/mesh in the "mouth" of the bumper. It's very easy to fix. US spec bumpers doesn't have this grill I think, so RMM hasn't paid any attention to it when designing the lip.

As for the vizage sides + rear, they fit like OEM parts!! I'm very impressed by them!

Correct. European celica's have the antenna there. A lot of what is refered to as "jap spec" on the celica, is exactly the same in europe.

The antenna will be shaved off, so it really doesn't matter ;-)

What matters is that I would KILL to get hold of some fender flares that fits the celica! Would save A LOT of work!!
