well, as much fun as it was to have and install a bodykit on my car, i have decided to revert back to the stock front and rear bumber. i guess i have outgrown the look of the kit on my car. i actually outgrew it a year ago. i have come to appreciate the stock, more grown up look of the 5th gen celica.

i plan to remove the kit this weekend or next. i will probably sell the kit or trade it for something.

i'm going to lower it an 1'' or so and slap some different rims on it. these are the rims i bought for it. they are MB Motoring 15x6.5. i plan to put 215/50's on them but haven't decided on the tire. i may go a little wider with the tire. it will look much better than the huge tires i'm running right now.

that would be great man! I do like those new wheels, they should look sharp on it. What kind of front bumper are you looking to get for it? Gonna keep it that matte red or go gloss this time?

i'm putting my stock bumper back on. i'll sand and prime it the same color as the car. i can't afford a paint job right now. i tend to spend my money on mods for some odd reason.

lol I tend to do the same, my celica could use a paint job but its not desperate for it so I like to do a couple other things that I can actually afford. So are the side skirts staying on then?

quite honestly I hate the vader kit, just my tastes, but it doesnt look too bad on the 5th gens, especially from the side.

yeah the stock look looks meaner :sneak: im thinkin about getting MR2 badges and the 85ish corolla gts door stickers the 'SR5' or 'TWIN CAM' and takin off the S in GTS... should look nastalgic (<--spelling). GL with the stock transformation though =)
