Project MKIV Supra: Part 17 – Back in blue with TwinZ Design


To paint a car right, there’s a lot of work involved, including the removal of several car parts to be painted individually.

When completed, the Estoril Blue metallic paint was much more “metallic” in the light than I had predicted. I love the way it turned out. Pictured here is the top of the factory wing.

Here’s a close-up of the factory front bumper, fitted with TwinZ Design two-piece front splitter. It sits about 3-inches lower now.

This pictures shows the difference with how low the factory rocker panel sat (left) versus one of the new brake duct pieces from TwinZ Design.

The new, lower look with side splitter is nothing short of awesome. There are a couple of downsides to consider, however. First, I have to always remember to step out a little further when getting out of the car (I’ve clipped it with my heel a few times but nothing major). Second, it’s made putting the car up on the lift a real process now. I’ll have to use another set of Race Ramps or 2×4’s to get it a half-inch higher to be able to slide the lift points underneath. I’m not discouraged, however—the new look is well worth it!
