remember y'all the car is NOT complete yet. gotta take things one step at a time. i just barely received the parts last week and i got them installed five days after (which is quite fast). next up is getting the wing done (within the next couple of weeks).
i have known 'bout the Fender
FLARE issues since day one. molding is not done overnight and is time consuming, not to mention the repainting of half the car. the bumpers are urethane so there will be no further molding onto those components. i have an idea in mind that i gotta run by the specialty customization shop while i'm having them check out the wing install. this "idea" of mine will smooth out the flow, i've just held off due to cost issues (labor & rental).
the RIMS are under appreciated in pics but in person are quite nasty (they are not thin spoked chrome but are black multi-spokes with chrome trim). as far as Fender
gap, i've already checked out wheel spacers but do not like the instability that they can pose. huge wide deep dish rims are way over budget also. so, the rims are permanent.
the TAILS are the only ones i find satisfactory to serve the general black/white scheme of the celica. i do not like redded out tails nor do i want tinted stock ones either (too dark). in the future i may consider a light tint to the existing altezzas.
CRITICISM is a good motivator to get shit done (stuff i've been slacking at) but remember y'all, rome wasn't built in a day. this is, at the moment, my daily driver (even in the winter) 'til i pick up another car. so down time is costly (rentals and celica withdrawals). also, coordinating my schedule for car appointments when i'm working just a nudge under SIXTY hours a week reduces my irregular sleep further having multiple days with only 2-3 hours of slumber. i've had my car seventeen months so far and has progressed fairly rapidly so far. but i do need time to spread installs, mods, revisions, and re-works over time in accordance with budget limitations.
