Not a fan of the exhaust, or the "2 seater conversion". It just looks like a huge ass boy is sitting over your seats. If you took them out and smoothed out the floor all the way to the hatch, that could look sweet. Nice rims though.

In parkour, no one is afraid. One is just...apprehensive.

Haha, dude, you should have waited to get your body kit man. I'm selling mine and I live in Calgary as well...if I remember right, you live in Calgary. Mine is already painted spec blue too...too late now I suppose. Anyhow, can't wait to see your car when it's done!

The "cover" that I have over the back seats are just temporary until I get a system put in the back. And the reason why I'm getting my kit put on now is because the body shop I went to is having a special... so I'm getting everything put on and painted (VS1 kit, TRD wing, raised Hood scoop) for $1500 Canadian. grin

Well mine's already painted and fitted so all it needs is an install. Selling the rear and sides for $300. It's VS1 replica side and rear too, the one's you bought I presume. The paint is cracking a tad bit on the edges though, I'm sure so will your's since you'll be driving your Celica in winter conditions. Anyhow, if you're still interested, gimme a PM. I won't be selling them for another couple or few months though cause I'm saving up to get my new body kit painted and along with the entire car. Lemme know, it's never too late to resell your body kit since you're not painting them yet, just installing them...I'll even help ya install these if you decide to buy from me.

Curious, how much did the install run ya? And where?

Well, acutally the kit and everything will be painted and installed this week. I'm not driving the car over the winter (I have a Rav4, you can see it in one of the pics). I went to Impressions to have everything done, they told me they won't be doing the painting, (their bodyshop will be doing that) just fitting and installing of the kit and everything else. They quoted me $1400 for everything... maybe an extra couple hundred or so if fitting the kit takes more work than they think!

dude, how can you survive with your summer tires still on!!?!?!?? I'd be dead if I still had mine on, and there's no hills here!!

My bro used to live in Tuscany, and the factory tires couldn't make it to Stoney trail after it snowed...

Well, like I said earlier, the car's been parked for the winter, I drive the Rav4 right now. I just took the car out to the body shop that day, and I drove REALLY slow!!! Don't think I got to use anything higher than 2nd gear! grin

The only thing more noticable is the throttle response... slows down more when you let off the gas and accelerates a little faster when you step on it! thumbsup

It is lower than stock, but what you don't realize about my car is that I've taken everything out of the back of the car(Spare tire, carpets, jacks, plastics, even the back seats) So there's a lost less weight pushing down on the rear of the car. I'm pretty happy with the height tho, since I'm putting a VS kit on, any lower than I'll scrap for sure. Those pics don't do it justice tho, once the shop is done putting on the kit I'll take more pics,

Buddy, fart can or not, that's one of the exhaust systems that make the most power gain for the celica! If you do a search you'll find that a bunch of us here have this "fart can" exhaust! You don't just get an exhaust system for the way it looks!
