You can buy that grill on ebay as its not an oem part and the trd grill emblem can be bought there too all for around 40 bucks. the only own mesh grill that I know of is the jdm bz touring wagon grill

eBay is fine, just don't buy from dealers with awful rep lol. I generally take all with reps in the 99's as pretty good, then when they're in the 98's I look at the reviews to see which items have been negative or whatever to see if I still wanna order from them. I've never had an issue and on my current eBay account I have over 150 purchases.

Hey, welcome to the site over here too Smile

Your best bet is to see what other people have done to their cars (we've got lots of picture and build threads, especially the Car of the Month contests) and decide what you like to do. I would highly recommend AGAINST a fiberglass body kit, they are cheaply made and don't fit right or look that good most of the time (with exceptions). But if you put in enough work, you can make ANYTHING look good (just ask me, I know lol).

Thanks for your suggestion! Ive always been against fiberglass for exterior, it just seems to be way too fragile! I'm considering looking into Subaru bumpers to see how it looks

Yeah I've had fiberglass parts, and unless you're spending hundreds of dollars on an ORIGINAL (not replica) part, then it should be good (until you hit something). OEM polyurethane or aftermarket poly is the best, and that's all I use on my cars anymore Smile It's so flexible, almost too flexible, but let me tell you, it was the only part to survive my accident!

Of course you can't see it lol. I used fiberglass behind it and Bondoed the front.... though if I were to do it again, I would plastic-weld the back of it, like I just finished on my side skirts.

Thanks Frankie Smile I did it because it seemed to fit the Corolla style nicely, plus I did not see it done almost ever.

Yeah it looks super legit bro! Did the front bumper already come with those corner lights, or did you install them seperately?

You mean the lights on the bumper? Those are the turn signals, just like stock Smile But it came with orange lights, I put the white ones in Smile
