ok i was looking around the web and i came across a couple celicas. i was looking and the front end is very similar to a gen3 when it comes to the lights. its front end also houses the lights. and i was thinking it wouldnt be too hard for a bodyshop to mold the kit around the headlights would it? i was thinking something along the lines of this

you also have to match up mounting points, overall width, curvature, depth, and all kinds of other things. The chances of it mounting up are small. I don;t think it is feasible, but that's just my opinion. Why not just try to find a junkyard G# SHO to steal the bumper from?

You would also need to get the turn signal lenses, the celicas' are much larger than ours. i thought about this myself but went/am goin the "easier" route by taking an aftermarket front-end and choppin it right under the headlights all the way across the bumper, using 1 cutline. after the cutting, size up where/how to mount your newly modified bumper. then a little fiberglass and resin and i'll be set. You could use some metal braces on the "inside" of the bumper using screws to mount them, as you will also need to smooth out this area after screwing in the brackets (a dremel tool is ideal for this process). i also need to figure out where to cut my factory bumper. i think the cutline will be where the top of the licenseplate holder meets the upper-part of the bumper. i'm gonna incorperate the "side" turn signals from the original bumper since it's gonna cost the same price and since I have the clear lenses. The aftermarket bumper I am using is the Invader-style bumper from a 99 Civic, with the exception that it's been cut.

Yeah, that car's been all over these forums for awhile. That kit is an R-33/34 Skyline kit. The kit I'm usin' is a "little" different than that one. I have an Invader front bumper, Taurus-specific Razzi sideskirts, an SHO rear bumper, and a GTR Battle wing. Yeah, it's gonna be really rice but that's what I like. I wanna rice-like car without all the accessories that you can buy at your local autoparts stores.
