So I've decided to take my vacation, leaving on the 20th of this month, going to Trinidad. When I go away, I'm going to have my car painted. Getting both front lips painted, but I wont be molding them in as I don't know which one I'm going to use yet. Carcept or the erubuni one. Arabian Knight has the same erubuni one.

If there are people that want it I might do a write up on molding your kit with lots of pictures, as thats my next thing to do before I can drop it off at the paint shop by the following wed.

I know there is a write up on how to convert & install a e153 tranny into a fwd Celica floating around on the web, but I might do one for this site to have.

So its the last time you guys will see this primer colour'd Celica

Ok I need to know which front lip to use, you guys tell me which one you like better, I'll try and get some pics in the daylight, but this is all I got for now. And do you guys think I should redout my vented tails or should I just redout the outline of the tails and leave the center ovals orange as I have 92 taillights with jdm vented corner peices?

The rear I'm going to have to custom make a rear using probably the invader rear, but I know how to fiberglass and I'm going for something like this.

If you need to use a lip I would use the erebuni one. Carcept one is cool I just don't like it, I think its too weird looking.
