As some of you may know, last year around August I did an overhaul on my 92 GTS with a buddy of mine and got my side skirts on as well as the whole car primered. Since then I have slowly been putting on the rest of my bodykit (Invader Type 1) and have been very eager to get my car done so I can just drive it and enjoy it. In February this year I got the front bumper mounted, and just last month I got the rear mounted. Take it this bodykit was created for a GT there was obviously gaps that needed to get filled, and molding the kit was not an option, it was a must. Well just yesterday I had an epiphany while looking throughout the alltrac.net and gt4oc.com websites; I had decided that the bodykit had to go. In total I spent about 6 days in work putting the bodykit on which spanned in 9 months. Just today me and Neil (same buddy who helped me before) ripped off the whole kit. My car was known as the "Crayon Box" around town because of its multicolored appearance (red hood, grey body, yellow front bumper, white rear bumper). Finally my car is down to 2 colors! (Red hood, Grey everythign else :D)

I just thought I'd let you guys know that I am following the path of bongin and have went from the "rice" to "nice" or "JDM" stage. I will soon be ordering in my CS front bumper and hopefully getting ahold of either a CS or Alltrac hood (anyone who knows one for sale would be greatly appreciated!) I will soon get pictures up of what my car originally looked it, after the side skirts, after the front and rear bumper, and what it looks like after the end of today; but in the mean time I gotta take a shower :)

Here is what she originally looked like before I touched her and ruined her :hehe:

Shortly after prep work began and on went the sideskirts:

Then came that horribly infamous front bumper:

Neil has a few pictures of what the rear looked like, I'll upload those as soon as they are sent to me. Anywho I'm back to the garage to get the stock bumpers on and take a few more pictures of her new found goodness :)

Thats my buddy Dave's 90 Prelude SR, pretty decent car. He has a big phat fart can that can kill a cat and he's blown his motor for the 2nd time in 2 months :((he drives her hard:)).

I got the rest of the bumpers back on, sure she's still a multi-colored beast; but now shes a STOCK multicolored beast:) Here are pictures I just took:




Pretty bad quality pictures I know, but 2morrow I'll get some better pictures in the sunlight so you can see her true beauty :hehe:

My change from nice to rice to jdm will be complete once I go to the Toyota dealership 2morrow and place my order for my CS front bumper. I'm excited :D
Leave comments if you please :)

You gonna get that CF piece off the front that's missing, too?

Needs a little wing. :P

Car looks to be in nice shape, too.

Yah the missing CF piece is in my garage, it as well as the 3 piece spoiler will be put on this week. Finally back to my stock ST184! :bigthumbu

These two celicas:



I'm pretty sure looking at these, any true celica lover would splurge their pants, and envy the owners of these two cars.
