    This should be interesting.
    I hope you are not going to cut the panels for shipping. I would advise against it.
    Where are you located at?

    Most kits have crappy indicator lights.. I made exact replicas where you can fit any color of lens in...if you need any ..i sell them cheap ..

    Suspension all done

    I have now fitted my BC Racing fully adjustable coilovers!
    Have included some pics, have left as they came height wise, and will adjust once kit has been fitted!

    Can anyone tell me what the oem ride height should be for a F430?

    Can anyone give me any ideas for my interior? is there a dash kit I can install on top of the celica dash?
    Have managed to get hold of 3 oem 430 dash vents, however they are quite a bit larger than the standard celica ones!

    Any advice greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Put the body on the car and THEN adjust your ride height accordingly in correlation to your wheel/tire to fender gap.
