Best Mod?

I have an 02 gt and am trying to come up with a couple mods.I already have 18 inch wheels,kazuma exhaust,and tyc taillights.What do you guys think would be a good looking mod for the stock celica body?The revmotion front lip at the ecelica store,a wing/spoiler,or maybe an invader Hood?Let me know what you guys think would be the best mod without buying a full body kit.

not sure which side it is on but it is a small gap between the light and the rear fender

uhm ... 1/4 inch i think ... seen most prominantly if looking directly down on the rear of the car ... there is a pic of it somewhere in the gallery if i can find it

I think this is what you are talking about. the first picture is at a bad angle, and the second picture is blurry. but at least you get the idea

Hey Isaac,
do you think that Hood would look good with a veilside body kit?

I think it would look AWESOME with the Veilside kit... Veilside and this Hood both have the same agressive flowing lines thumbsup

Great thumbsup
So now Im left with one more decision, I kinda wanted to paint the Hood white (car is spec. blue), but Im not sure I want to do that seeing as how it looks good as is.

That Hood is tight. I think that it would look better regular carbon fiber than white on a spec blue car. What exterior mods do you have. If you do this, you should have other white exterior mods such as wheels, and maybe like blue Hood spoilers.

I am planning to get white rims, but If I keep the Hood Carbon Fiber, I might just go with gunmetal.

I heard somewhere that if you spay some paint over the Carbon Fiber Hood and let it drop down on it, it would give a nice colored carbon fiber look. I think you would have to clear coat it also.

I would say Limited Slip Differential is the best mod for around $1000.
And believe me I have just about everything out there...
