So my Celica dragon emblems came in, and now I have to decide on where to put them... I'm torn between just one on the rear hatch..either centred or off to one side... Or use both on each door ( Still waiting on side mouldings )

I'd say on on the hatch, and replace the "T" on the front (if you have one).

The rear emblem treatment looks unbalanced -- with just the right emblem (GT-S) it's not too noticeable, but having one at centre and at right looks odd to my eyes.

Considering how clean the car is, I'd be inclined to lose the GT-S badge and place the dragons centred at front and rear, though the rear, even with the Celica only in relief, would look a little cluttered (stack of centre spoiler post, badge, Celica, licence plate). Or take a cue from the GT-86/FRS/BRZ's piston badge and place the dragons on the front fenders near the A-pillars.

Yeah if I put her on the rear I'd prolly ditch the GTS it does look awkward with the GTS emblem there ,( no yota symbol on hood ) , I don't think the dragon on hood would look good

I,m leaning toward the sides of the car on the doors , or move it forward to the fender

I would recommend the front fenders where the side marker lights are placed on JDM/Euro cars.

I second the fenders, where jdm lights go.

Ended up going with the fender choice , only thing is on the passenger side the dragon faces back into the car .. So looks a lil odd compared to driver side but oh well
