It's so tough to keep this car sometimes. I spent a lot of time on the suspension, and when we dropped the car off the jack stands....

Since there wasn't much interest in my rims or air suspension I decided to install them today to hopefully inspire interest in the parts.

The Freshly painted front lip on my car fell off on the highway at 75 mph and got ripped to shreds promptly by my tires on a 300 mile trip.

That was the third and final front lip I will ever purchase. Gonna find an AC Shine front end sometime in fall and go that way and get rid of my 97+ front. It's worn out it's welcome, and I think an AC Shine front will utlimately be cheaper, less maintenance, and less worry.

I don't think I hit anything because there was nothing on the road, but obviously when the lip fell, it felt like I hit something because I ran it over and shredded it to bits. Luckily my tires were fine since I was only about 50 miles in to the trip. Otherwise I would've been doubly pissed. No clue why it fell off at all as it was freshly mounted and installed, and I even checked on the mounting bolts two days ago and they were all perfectly tight. Luckily I got the lip used off the CL classifieds and not new, because they run upwards of $700 new and I didn't want to go through buying that again, and definitely don't want to go through that now.

Took this on the side of the highway, didn't even want to drive back to look at the carnage, but the lip just shredded into pieces all over the highway. I was fuming mad for about 14 seconds.

eknine9, that sucks about the front lip. The same exact thing happened to my friend's vertex lip.

New to SC cars, and toyota in general, but got these stock tail lights

That said, they didn't quite seem right... do i have a different generation of SC lights here? And help would be amazing.

Glad you got rid of the eBay tails.

There are 3 types of stock SC lights.

92-94 tails, which are the ones on your car currently.

95-96 tails, which look like this

And 97+ (97-2000) which look like this.

It's all up to preference, however when swapping the tails from a 97+ to 92-94 there will be a fast-blink on the turn signals and a "bulb failure" light on the dash. I think it also happens on the 95-96 but there is an easier fix for the fast blink I think on those cars, I don't really know since mine is a 92.

Interesting... most people that have seen it in person ask me if they're 19's.

Do you think it's related?
I've had a vertex lip on since I bought it from the PO. First one lasted me a year, second one lasted me less. Third one lasted all of 5 weeks.

Never had one fall off though until this one. If anything I'd be more inclined to believe it fell off from user error, improper mounting, or hitting something. I doubt it's a widespread problem, but either way, it's time for me to go with an AC Shine front lip... maybe the whole kit, but my sides and rear look great and are freshly painted, so I guess it depends on what I find and for what price.

Just got it off the jack stands, new trans and motor mounts, stock, the road noise is much better, and gave it and me our first triple digit test, pretty smooth, did I mention I just got it 2 weeks ago, a 97sc400 with 72K, bone stock-for now.

Thanks for the clarification, glad i got rid of those things too... not only did they not look very good, they were hard to see.

Went to the local Pick Your Part and found some stuff, so more updates to the SC today:

- clean HVAC display (mine had that awful digital black smear on it)
- rear parcel shelf with sub cover (car didn't come with one).. not complete, and needs to be recovered, but it's a start
- cup holder with a working lid
- passenger side front speaker cover

not bad for a car that's very rarely in the local junk yards
