Side skirts and front lip

Postby TokuzoST185 » Mon Nov 09, 2009 4:36 pm

How goes there? I figured some people may be curious as to how st20x sides look when properly mounted to a ST185. I'll post more pics and a walk through on my install later (I'm at work now). I also did a DIY Home Depot front lip. Its a bit different than what others have done, and I'll be fiberglassing and making a mold of it to make the "real deal". Please let me know your thoughts. (I've never posted something like this, so please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong on the picture upload)

I'll paint it white after the fiberglass work. It may be a bit until that is all finished (maybe a week as I have to do this after work everyday). I'll still get some side shots up though. Hopefully later today. Should have them posted in the bodykit research section in about 5 minutes. Is anyone interested in a walk through on how I did this, or would I just be wasting time posting pictures and descriptions? Please let me know.

It would not hurt to post up how you did it. I am sure it would be useful for those who want to try and make their own lip. That would be a cheap, light solution as a base to build a custom lip off of.

One more pic I had at work. The few crinkles in the front in this picture are out now, this is when the lip was only tape fitted. I'll post a side picture tonight and update when everthing is fiberglassed and painted. Thanks for looking.

I'd add at least some OEM plastic mud flaps to the rear if you aren't going to do a rear lip.

Then give it some more aggressive wheel fitment and a drop and it should look nice.

I agree with Lumbercis. Better wheel fitment or some spacers and less arch gap would make a nice clean look along with some flaps in the back to finish the look off.

I would like to see some better shots of the side skirts perpendicular to the car, but it looks decent.

Someone did these sides about a year ago and I completely lost the thread. If anyone knows the thread I mean, let me know. Some guy spotted a set in a junkyard and made them fit, on a white st185 as well, I believe.

The front lip looks awkward to me, but it might be cause it's black, like others mentioned. Sides look good, but we need better pics of them.

Cheers, nice work!

Better wheel fitment, lowered and painted lip may look much better.

Unfortunately I haven't made the time to finish it. I've been busy helping a friend with a concept car he's building; as well as making my brother a halo costume. I'm hoping to be able to get back on this this coming week and I'll post pictures then. Sorry guys.

Been FOREVER since I updated this, but this project was placed on hold for me to work on my 02 GTS project and a Scion TC build. So far I have scrapped the front lip due to slapping a RC front on (working on a new lip for this front), custom fabbed a rear bumper, molded the ST205 skirts, shaved the side moldings, painted black trim on the taillights, painted my old stock gts wheels on put those on, and painted the car lexus pearl white. It's really hard to see the pearl, but you get the idea. Let me know your thoughts. I'll post this up in the bodykit thread too.

love the white, love the shaved side moldings, love the tails, love the rc bumper...... hate the molded sides & rear. All-in-all, very clean, tho & a real head-turner!

I was going to post almost word for word what celicasfree just posted. I think the molding was a mistake. And I'm not feeling the rear bumper (looks uneven on the left side). Paint and shaved side mouldings are great though.

I'd still get some more aggressive wheels.
