lots of work

hi guys, i have read and kept up with this site for a little while now but just really started doing stuff to my car now. I have a 2000 carbon blue celica gt. I currently have a veilside 1 full body kit with motegi MR7 18inch gunmetal rims. my car is in the shop right now getting an alarm put in and tomorrow goes to the body shop. I am getting my body kit molded in and a color changing paint job done. The paint is primarily a dark blue almost like carbon blue and changes to a crimson color and almost a bronze color when you are looking almost even with the paint. I am also putting on a VIS invador carbon fiber Hood and (probubly) a veilside 1 carbon fiber spoiler. i am also getting lowering springs after my car gets out of the shop. Anyway i say all this because you guys more experienced in this field than i am and i was wanting some ideas, comments, words of advice..what ever ya got its all welcome. thanks in advance wave

I havent done anything to my interior or or engine yet. But after i do this i think i am either going to get CAI, exhaust and maybe something else moderately easy to the engine or put a system in it and do a little other interior work. I dont know why but i picked the exterior to modify first. But i want to get it looking good before i start on something else grin

oh, beleive me when i say i was NOT picking on you for only modding the exterior. many, many people do that and personally i would probably do the same--it's what people notice most. i was just wondering about the other aspects of your car. CAI (or shortram) and exhaust sound pretty good. but it really won't add much power (usually about 7 or 8 whp--thats really not all that bad though) so it's mostly just an appearance mod and audible mod (bigger exhaust looks best with a body kit and Intakes and exhausts give your car a better sound)

keep up the good work thumbsup
