but unless you have the GT-4 Bumper there will be a gap in the middle

and you need a longer bonnet latch.

its a straight swap (done it myself) , the only thing you need is the GT4 bonnet catch as its longer than the original .

heres a pic , you can see its a fair bit longer.

thats fair enough m8

but to set the record straight i never once made out mines was a gt4, i kept the gt badges on it and when ever i was asked is it a gt4 i said no, the reason i went for the gt4 kit is because i think its the best looking kit for the celica (and i bet that's what 90% of the other guys think that want to add the gt4 kit) ,lets be honest there isn't really a good looking body kit for the celica is there ???

I actually quite like the look of the gap at the front of the bonnet! I could even go as far as saying If I had a 4 I would prefeer it to have the st202's bumper, but then there'd be problems with air flow I suppose - Although the gap would let a little in!!

regarding there not being that good a body kit for the gen 6 i think that's down to it being so well designed in the first place its hard to improve :D

you just cany help love those curves lol

mind you any gen 6 without side skirts just doesn't look 100% lol

just wish i still had mines, i wrote it off last Tuesday :crybaby: and no fault of a !Removed! speed cop car :ffs: , goes down as my fault though :(

sorry for taking this off topic m8

Hi i am still around... TOC just seemed to get really boring thats why i havent been on as much.

I think if your going to do the gt4 bonnet you might aswel do the front bumper too. i think the gap looks a bit pantz. A brand new genuine toyota GT4 front bumper is only about 150 delivered. :thumbsup:
