Talking Time to do more mods

Alright you guys probably remember me posting about a body kit. I was debating over the Vizage or the Evolution. And since I hate ricers, I decided I'd be a hypocrite if I bought a Vizage kit since it looks so much like a ricer. Sooooo I have decided on the Evolution. Ive got a couple of questions guys... 1. WHERE CAN I GET THE GRILLE IN THE PIC??? I have looked ALLLL over and cant see one like it. 2. Does any one know of an importer of these kits? 3. Is this kit going to go on sale or anything??? (sorry for jacking ur scan Lord of the Celsiors... the picture of the kit looks soooo ugly on the Evolution site because the car is purple) Man I really love this car. Mines gonna end up looking just like this by next yr. Oh and another question... on the Evolution site the rear bumper picture shows that it has centered exhaust??? Is this true?? Thanks in advance guys.

Also does anyone know if theres really a difference in getting a $30 supra strut bar or the TRD one?? The TRD is 200ish so I want to save the money if its not a big difference.

Several yrs back that grill was popular......... Itmight take me awhile but I think I can find one. Grills are not cheap over here so if you say over $200 is toooooooooo much I wont bother looking cause most grills over here cost way more then that.

Be prepaired to dish out around 3200 just for the kit. Don't forget paint and install costs.

Wow, the import tax is gonna be $900?? On the site its listed as $2300. I was thinking about doing the install myself but I dont know if thats a good idea. As for the paint... Im going to get the whole car painted triple black. This is going to be quite a long project. (not to mention pricey). I have some money set aside for the NSX i was going to get in about 1 1/2 years so I'll just take money from there for now. Let the modding begin

the only strut bar that will fit on your car is a 93-98 Supra TT Strut bar, plus you'll need some spacers to allow it to clear the intake manifold

I would say about $500-$600 to import the kit at the most. If you cant find one I can help you get it & it will be ALOT faster then the slow boat form Japan - U.S.

Thanks **-.-}. Before I place my order I want to know if the kit is made of fiberglass. Fiberglass kits crack all the time and are a hassle to maintain. Does anyone know what the kit is made of??
