could someone elaborate on the cutting of the guards a bit more and how the two options affect the wheel sizing
pics of the guards cut would be awesome as well if possible

great write up btw, thats the only thing i can find that theres a lack of info on

i am putting mine on, but the gas door is completly wrong. i am just going to mold it and put the gas cap elswhere, everything else is going good though. very little cutting, and looks to be very little sanding too. its just that rear trunk lid part i dont know if i will put on or not, i am planning on a c/f trunk with the 98 wing, so i might leave it off.

repairing or replacing trd WB trunk

hey everyone, i got mr2 with the original japanese trd wide body kit, or so i have been told, the guy i bought it from showed me the reciept for it and it was a 3000 dollar kit, but it is a shame what has happened to it. I bought the car very cheap we'll say, its a 91 turbo too, but the rear bumper had been crushed... a guy pushed it bumper to bumper with a truck up a hill. and the bumper is in three pieces, the fenders are cracked where it is molded, etc.... well This was my first fiber glassing project and it is going very well. and i've got everything pretty much under controll. but the trunk lid is very craked, smashed and i need to know where i can find an extension for the trd body kit to match the rear quarters, or where i can find a carbon fiber lid for it. but i kinda wanted to run the trd wing on it also so a carbon fiber one might be out of the question, but any help or directing would be greatly appreciated. thanks

are there any websites that sell the TRD kit in pieces instead of as a full kit? Because I need the rear bumper and right sideskirt only. Thanks

Does anybody have anymore pics of their gas doors?

I'd like to use the one that came with my VIS kit.

Neos Designs in England are offering their own tweaked TRD kit - which bolts up to all the factory mounting points.

The kit was taken from a copy - and then re-worked. It's been 1 year in development - and the quality is stunning. This is where my kit is being purchased from - they are also fitting it.

I'm so impressed, I'm sending my other MR2 to them to get this kit fitted. It's the lightest kit available as well, as it'll need almost no filler - because the fit is that good.

And before anyone says anything, I'm not getting a penny for this - I'm purely pointing out what I think is the best TRD kit available.

I can post some pictures up after Christmas...

He apparently disappeared off the face of the earth and left some problems up in the air with a few of the UK club members...

I dont know how many poeple on here are autobody techs, but I have a question about using screws...or rivets to hold the kit on. If you use that method how do you keep the car from rusting' I mean right as soon as there is bare metal exposed its gona start rusting out, then its just a matter of time till all your hard work goes down the drain. Is there any way to prevent this?

Use Fusor made by Lord. Use the SMC adhesive/ repair. Then take the screws out and fill after the adhesive has cured.
