So i went out to my car today noticed a huge chunk of my grill is missing... Now my celica looks like a junkyard car... ::shrugs::

Will the GT and GTs grill fit my st? Thanks.

I need a definate answer before i go out and buy it. And it's the bottom grill...

By the way how the hell do u get the bottom grill off? I need to get this fixed ASAP cuz it makes my car look like complete shit.

it is deffinate they will, but that piece between the hood is a pain to find in healthy condition from a yard. I almost had a couple but no cigar. I need to replace my cracked one :( Oh and there are screws between the headlights when you pop the hood and you have to take out the side markers as well

Its almost next to impossible to find one thats clean.

Ebay users that find them are generally uninformed about the value. What do they go for here? I've found a few at yards that were in good shape, bought them for ten bucks and then sold them for anywhere from $80-$110 on Ebay.

I think they've gone for $20-$40 around these parts? Correct me if I'm wrong, its been a while since I've been in the market for one.


You can find them on ANY 1990-1993 Celica regardless of trim level. They all share the same bolt and screw design and are very easy to install and remove. They take less than ten minutes if you aren't screwing around with other stuff (Like me!).

If I find any at a yard I will keep you in mind and you can reimburse me for what I paid plus shipping.

Oh BTW how do u get the side markers off?

CelicaGT90_95 whats too pricey give me a price range. The junkyards around here tend to be some what pricey to be honest. Dayton has a huge automotive repair industry so junk yards can charge more then the average.

on the end of the grill underneath it theres a screw, that helps hold the grill in and holds the sidemarkers in. Price range is if you can get one within $20 it would be nice

Like I said, easy and not very time consuming.

it makes a huge difference in appearance. The car looks incomplete without it.
