I recently purchased a 1991 Toyota Celica GT and I love it. Got a good deal on it so it was a must. 75k original miles, one owner car. Silver Metallic coupe which I rarely ever see. After doing a lot of maintenance, I would now like to get into mods. First thing I did was get fog lights and I switched the bulbs out to 2500k so it gives a nice golden-yellowish light. Next thing I'll probably do is try to get a front lip but it from using google and the search bar, it was very hard to find a legit body kit. I found one that I liked but I need help from you guys to tell me what it is.

I found these cars on this forum so you've probably seen it before.
Can you guys tell me what this front lip is? I found a few on andysautosport.com and they all look the same but different prices. So if you can tell me which one is legit, that would be great. And will they fit on a coupe? Both these cars are hatchbacks and I haven't learned the difference yet.

I'm new here so quite a few questions might be asked if I can't find the answer somewhere else. I hope this is a great community and I will stay with you as long as possible. Thanks.

I think body kits are a waste of money, they tear and crack. If you do get a body kit you need to drive it really really safely, and not during any kind of weather bad weather (i would think). It would also cost a pretty penny to get a full body kit painted and fitted and some times molded correctly.

Im trying to be as conservative as I can be spending money on this car. I love this front lip on the car so it is a must. I don't plan on getting a rear bumper, but looking to get side skirts later on.

Welcome to the site! Both of the cars posted are/were members here. Here is a site with the majority of body kits, but these are going to be difficult to find.

Thank you very much. I hope to buy the front lip only from andysautosport soon. This will fit the front of a 91 gt coupe?
