Body Kit Question
How does a Celica look with only aftermarket rear and side?

Also, if it does look good, is it rice?

One more, what body kit looks good with only side and rear?

The only reason I'm asking this is because I realized I prolly can't get a front b/c I have a steep driveway and the roads here are crap. Speed bumps are a big thing here too. Thx!

As for the body kit question, there's no real need for you to have one if your live in the type of area where you do. True, your front bumper will take most of the punishment, but that doesn't mean the sides and back won't. As for your question about it looking riced out, I don't think it would. But I'll tell you this much, it'll look weird as hell. It'll be like buying a tuxedo and wearing only the jacket and shirt.

you could get ww or kaminari sides and rear and get a c/f windsplitter. i think that would look really good thumbsup

i have a 03 guys, WW don't fit...does it??? pretty sure it doesn't so

o and also, i know the side and rear takes punishments but it'll only be scrapes at the bottom which happens with any car. the front on the other hand, i'm pretty sure it'll crack!

and isaac, how come you used to not have a front?

veilside might be a problem becoz it overhangs heaps ie. its pretty long. i got the veilside front and im scared as hell whenever i go up/down something steep...but thats just me=)

Somehting like TRD or kaminari shouldnt cause you an problems tho! Just dont lower too much...or dont lower at all... thumbsup my 2 cents

1) the current WingsWest does NOT fit the new factory "catfish" style of the 7th gen celica

2) my rear bumper has never seen any type of punishment other than me backing into plastic trash bins, backing too close to a wall and one time when a focus ran into it and the focus' Mirror broke off and was dangling by a few electrical wires (scratch/swirl remover took care of my bumper back to show quality)... and the sides never get any attention except for when I am backing out a drive way and the side of my car goes off the curb - and this has happened, thus, the cracks in my sideskirts (cleaned-up with a bunch of color-matched touch-up paint)

3) the stock front was put back on when I switched from working at one job and went to another job... the drive-ways at the new location were imposable for me to get IN and OUT of with the R2 front. A few months later, i got the RevMotion front and I was back in happy land again thumbsup

i only have TRD sides, rear, and TRD spoiler right now.

Had some bodyshop issues so didn't get the front lip on yet. but it looks alright actually. none of my friends have given me a lotta slack for it yet so...i think it's ok. rice
