FINALLY - MY CAR!

I took a few shots of the car in a hurry. It's dirty as hell (doesn't show that well in the pictures, thank god) but I can't wash it tomorrow 'cause of some glue that needs to harden before I go berzerk with meguiars products smile

The cold hard facts:

Vizage kit, lowered, on 8,5x19 rims, custom exhaust, removed rear wiper + "celica" lettering in hatch handle, full re-spray in black, seibon invader Hood.

Coming soon:

Red out tails or different tails + Rod Millen wing.

3 pictures - enjoy!

Thanks for the positive feedback (so far). Nice to hear I've done something right with the car smile I might have to raise the car a bit, 'cause it's sitting real low now. I'm going to test a couple of speed bumps these coming weeks to see which ones I can get over, and which ones I can't. If I can't get over anyone at all (or the most basic ones atleast), then I'll raise the car. It looks good sitting real low, but I also have to be able to use the car.

BTW: In the background, in the first picture, you can see my everyday ride - the funcargo. Not the coolest car in the world. But if anyone teases me too much, I can pull out my hidden weapon: the celica smile

I also got hoodpins lying around, but the thought of drilling into the beautiful seibon Hood doesn't tempt me that much just yet smile

Nooooooooooooooooo lol don't do that!!
Buy from Andy at BlueBatmobile.com, his is a vinyl and if you dont do it right you can just peel it off, you can buy 2 sets of his vinyls and itll still be cheaper than red spray. also you might just want to tint the entire thing from sjbocca55 here on ecelica. btw the exhaust look pretty funky, the tip at least, wut kind is it?

I want to keep it the way it is. With just a lip kit like the vizage kit, the Hood is almost too aggressive the way it is. A raised scoop would only make it worse (in my opinion). If it was an OEM style Hood, I'd get a raised scoop. But the raised "V" shape on the invader Hood is more than enough.

Looks amazing... I agree with you to leave the stock size scoop. The raised might be too much for that kit combo. thumbsup

Forgot to reply on the exhaust (some one else asked aswell). There's a thread about it here, with a soundclip and everything:

Took some more snaps today. Believe it or not, but the car is actually covered in a fine dust on these pictures so the paint (when clean) is even more shiny than in these pictures!

ok man. you HAVE TO pick up the tail lights i got from sbocaj. check out my profile and see what i mean. They would look sexy as fuck on ur car. pick up a set that are just like mine, with the white part left untinted. And another thing i think that ur car needs is ur tints to be a little bit darker. Go with 20 percent all around. that looks the best imo.

Those tails are illegal here. And it's also illegal to tint your front side windows, so I'm keeping them the way they are so as to not draw a lot of unwanted attention (cops) to my car.

But it would look *real* good, I agree with you on that!

The fucking norwegian god damn asshole police had nothing better to do at 23:00 on a friday night, than to pull me over (didn't give a fuck about the run down dodge neon behind me) and escort me to the nearest place where they do technical checks of the car. Which was open at 23:00 on a friday night, just to be equally big assholes.

So now I got to mount the original springs, get some approved tyres and wheels, and have my exhaust's sound level measured.

And after this has been done - if they catch me one more time with the lowering springs and wheels/tyres I have now (which I can't get approved - they're illegal), they're going to give me a big ass fine.

And I can't afford a ticket. I can't really afford to get new rims&tyres either. And I'm not driving around with the car on stock springs and approved tiny wheels.

And seeing as my car is easily recognizeable, I'm fucked. I can't drive it anymore without either having it look bad, or risk going bankrupt.

If your within the law, you have nothing to worry about. If you not, you should have done the research before spending the cash. The police don't make the laws, they only enforce them.

The only legal wheels and tyres for my car are way too small and look ugly. And the only legal way of lowering my car as much as I want are some way overpriced coilovers from germany.

I know the cops are just doing their job, but that doesn't make me hate them any less. I don't want any discussions about who's "fault" it is or anything. I just wanted to say I think they're a bunch of fucking assholes. That's all. Makes me feel all warm inside to say it.

A few night time shots I managed to take, before the cops pulled me over:
