if any of you all remember my car was the one that had a nissan altima squash my first carbon fiber Hood 'cause of an auto-start with clutch overide and in gear (reverse). took like two months to get another Hood. i waited like six months for the trunk.

didn't get to feel how heavy the carbon fiber hatch was. i just had the guy pull it down from the parts bin so i could snapshot of it before it was installed. but damn the trunk is nice. i paid like $450 for it through a tuner shop.

the Hood is light as shit though. my first vis invader Hood was light as a feather and fit damn perfect.

i just gotta worry 'bout the shop transfering the glass and potential cracking when drilling holes for the spoiler. they are a good shop and i trust they will be extremely careful.

originally i paid:

$520 Hood
$450 trunk
$470 spoiler

spoiler arrived within two weeks, the Hood within a month or two, the trunklid took like six months. my second Hood (after parking lot accident) took two months to receive.

CRAZYJ--->a auto repair guide estimated the install time at 'round five hours for the hatch. special note 'bout the hatch: no more rear wiper.

currently there is problems with the shop mounting the spoiler. they are not going to mount it due to what you can see by the following pictures. i believe that this is 'cause they pre-assembled the wing instead of mounting the endcaps first then attaching the center piece.

XMANGT1--->'bout the price for that hatch ($450)... i usually buy a bunch of parts at a time totaling thousands so i get decent prices. you think i got a deal on the hatch, but check out my rims. they retail for like $1200 at least but i got them for $580. two of them sat on the showroom floor 'cause they were the wrong offset for i think an rx7. i purchased the next two for wholesale (i think). the shop owed me a favor for having to wait so freakin' long for my trunk.

CYCOCELICA--->pm me 'bout possible troubles or issues with durability, thanks.

TOYOTALUVER--->lexan i think costs more than the actual trunk itself (well, my cost at least). i did look into it but i think i was quoted maybe 'round $600 (can't remember if that number is accurate but it was steep enough for me to say no).

QBANPREPSTER21--->don't really understand your off-topic question. concerning the fender flares i originally wanted the brs ones but they were unavailable at the time. the only ones available were the black widow ones. the front ones fit and could be molded fine but the rears needed the black widow sideskirts & blackwidow bumper, either that or fiberglass body components to fade it. i went with the wingswest kit so the rear flare is just over the top of the arch. my car is choppy, as is the vis invader Hood, the wingswest angles, and the celica's angles overall.

CELIWHITE--->the vis invader Hood fits perfect and is awesome looking. you're my celi-twin, just wondering if you're going to kit with wingswest.

for now ('til i get 'round to having another shop install the wing) i'll be checking it out for how it'll look wingless. i thought about it before but i had already purchased the wing. perhaps this install misfortune might be a blessing...

heat it up, it will flex a little bit so it can fit, and it will eventually mold pretty good

yeah man that's sweet. And for the kaminari wing...I know you probably don't wanna sell it or anything...but ceriousperformance.com or somethin like that has a full Carbon Fiber TRD wing including the sides and all...so it would match your theme perfectly. its 350 i think... wave

^^^are you refering to the trunk garnish, the part that says "celica" 'cause it didn't. i'm going to use the stock white one and add black fillins (if morris ever pm's me back).

changes from stock=no rear wiper & no trunk garnish (or handle cover).
