Well, good news and no news.

I finally got a response back from the Canadian Distributor for the Replica piece. So, for those of us that live in the North America region, we might have a viable option soon.

No news since he wanted my address first to be able to give me a quote on any of the pieces I had asked about. I was looking at some parts for our 2002 Celica GT as well.

I'll hopefully hear back before Fourth of July.... actually.. Canadians don't celebrate that do they???

Ok, I've been getting a regular correspondence going with the guy in Canada that can import the TRC replica kit. That's the good news.

The bad news is somehow I think there is some kind of communication break down. I explained to him how I had problems with the Pakfeifer kit and was interested in the Wurher kit instead. Now he thinks I'm having some kind of problem with all the kits in general and he said he didn't want to try ordering it for me. Maybe, I need to send the letter in French to him???? He didn't seem to fully understand what I was saying and his responses back are little bit like broken english.

Help!!! Anyone speak french?? It seems he can get the kit and this is the only thing standing in our way.

OK latest update:

The last letter I received:
Ok Understood..

But keep in mind if it's the right product with part number and it does not fit your car, whatever the reason, we do not accept return.

This is final sale only.

There is big big chance Whurer and Pakfeifer are related.. as Carzone body kit and Carcept Tuning.. so it might be the same product.

Your price on that front spoiler is $490 US

and front blade is $340 us

I spoke to my boss regarding our next order with TRC, we place order with them every 6 months because on low demand and our last order arrived last month.

So it might take 4-5 months before seeing your parts

Import fee is still $200 and $100 to ship to calif

Let me know.. but you might look somewhere also to import this.. might be cheaper and faster

Sorry

So I guess the only thing to keep in mind is that if i order this first to see if it works that then we will have to wait until they do their next order. Perhaps if I get my order from them in that six month time period, then maybe we can talk to them if I get the right piece about doing a group buy right afterwards.

What do you all think?

You may be better off finding a company that is willing to buy it, and make a mold for a group buy, then they sell it as their front lip.

We'd still need to get the right lip made into a replica. I did find one person/company from the Newcelica.org boards that does a fine job of replicating JDM body kits in Eurethane. I contacted them but never really got a response back.

Perhaps if I get this lip and see how it turns out... then we can get behind this all at once and use our buying power to have this made.

If you want I can take pictures with a ruler or measuring tape next to the lip I have. It's the Pakfeifer lip but not the one for the Alltrac. Still do you think it would help? At least until I order the other one from this Canadian store? Let me know.

When you try to fit the lip on the alltrac bumper, what are the main differences? I'm guessing that because the alltrac fenders are wider, it is not wide enough, but because it is fiberglass, i imagine it can be massaged to fit.

I could only assume the other lip is this one.

I bet it could look good on the CS bumper molded like this. This being a widebody as well.

The lip actually is the correct width. It fits onto my Celica GT-S which has wide-body fenders. The problem is in the depth from inside the fender where it attaches to the front of the bumper where it wraps over bottom of the grill. The GT-S grill I have on my car has that overbite look to it and when I have fitted the lip to my Alltrac it comes up short.

As to when I'll be picking up the lip. I do intend on ordering it. I have been saving my Alltrac funds though until I become employed again. So I have a nice little fund sitting there until my next job. It wouldn't be wise to spend it though until I feel secure in my next opportunity. The economy hit my last company very hard and they laid off 400 IT people nationwide.
