Toyota Celica Body Kits and Aerodynamics
Body kits have been around for a very long time. People always like making their car into something unique. As enthusiasts we look for ways to make our cars better than the manufacturer and try to add our own touches to them to make them "ours." Body kits can be functional, in that they can be lighter than factory body parts and/or more aerodynamic, but mostly they're just made to make your vehicle look a little different than before. I personally have seen many cars ruined by these body kits, but at the same time I've seen many built to perfectly compliment the factory design or even completely, beautifully redesign a car. Our Toyota Celica body kits come in many shapes made by manufacturers like Duraflex, B Magic, Couture, VIS Racing, AIT Racing, Wings West, etc.
Most of these kits are made of FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) that have much higher durability rates average fiberglass products. Most of these products are unfinished and will require preparation for paint or vinyl wrap. Brands like Couture make high quality polyurethane products made to fit without any modifications. Polyurethane products will always be superior to FRP products. FRP products are designed with the most cost effective way to mass produce body kits. Each manufacturer has their own molding methods which result in different quality products. We highly recommend having these kits installed by professional body shops who have experience working with FRP and urethane products.Whether you buy a FRP or urethane body kit, your Celica will look closer to what you want it to be. My favorite Celica kit is the Couture Vortex kit because it's a high quality product that looks very good.
Basic body kits will be 4 pieces which include the front and rear bumper along with 2 side skirts. However, there are a few kits, such as the Duraflex GT300, that are more extensive and include not only the basic 4 pieces but also the widebody front and rear fenders. All body kits will ship together however you can buy each piece separately as well, but it is usually more economical to order it as all-in-one.
