ive been really busy looking careers and had not have the time to start the mold... also, i have waiting for the weather to heat up so fiberglass will cure super fast.

celigts- sideskirts are from 6th gen celica... they are customized to fit the body.

What have you done to mod the skirts to fit? I really like how youve made it all flow well. Like from the pics the lips and skirts are at equal heights.

the rear section of the skirt had to be trimmed around the door area to clear it. then the gap between the trimmed area needed to be filled with plastic bumper repair. the rest of the skirt was heated and bent to shape to the body of the celica. l'll probably do a write up on how to customize these to fit.

Sounds like it took some time! Might have to try this myself cuz it seems to fit well. Did you use double sided tape to keep it on or how did you mount it?

What kind of plastic filler did you use? I need to use some possibly for my front lip.

Any updates on the front and rear lips, or sideskirt write up? Also, if you dont mind, can you post a picture of the finished wing that you were working on? BTW: Your artistic styling is really making me want to keep my car, and copy your style. Very nice, and very clean. Leaps and bounds better then the old look :)

Thanks, Steve

i used the bumper repair kit from autozone. its the two part mix that comes in a small quantity for 8.99 if im correct. i dont think it will hold up to mending two pieces of plastic together. it will hold up but not for long as i have used this to repair my cs bumper. it seems like when it was sanded down to even it out, it begins to peel from the surface.

scuba, its in the works right now, im jus waiting on time now to start the process.. thanks for the comments.. as far as the wing, i scrapped the old wing idea in favor of a new design

Those xxr's looks sick, and you're tellin me you basically hacked the mount for a stock brake, found 3000gt calipers and bolted em together haha damn that's so much easier than my brembo swap. Lol

That's pretty awesome.

yes, thats exactly wat i did. only thing that sucks is finding the right disc for it. celica has been on the back burner right now as there is other priorites to worry bout.

So what rotor did you use for the 3000gt calipers?
I'm trying to do the same swap you did. So far I have all but one caliper and rotors (unless the sti rotors work, I have a set ill see how well they work, they were pretty good with my boxster calipers, if only I had bought boxster S calipers lol)

I appreciate any info you have.
