Hi all. I'm new here. Hope you all can help me with my questions.

1.) Where to go to do my car mods? (I need to go check em out so I need their exact location). How much do a typical set of bodykits cost?
2.) Where to go for custom bodykits? (exact location pls) Can they make custom bodykits for any car? How much would the price be for a complete set?
3.) Where to go for airbrushing? (exact location pls)
4.) Where to go to get adjustable suspension? (exact location pls) Are adjustable suspensions the same as air suspensions?
5.) Where to go for custom head and tail lights? (exact location pls)

If possible, please provide me with the contact number of those shops as well. Thx all.

hmm

Hmm, i see....I also asked a few friends bout custom bodykits and some said that you can do it at ST fibreworks or Bumi Fibres, but donno which one is better...and where is ST fibreworks? Searched around also cannot find someone with address and tel number. What is the average pricing for a full set of custom body kits?

As for legal and illegal mods, I read about it at Motor Trader's website but not all are stated (exp : airbrushing not in the list). Where can I get more info on legal and illegal modding?

Adjustable or air suspension new or used also doesn't matter. All I need to know is for adjustable suspension, can the ride height of the car be adjusted immediately by a touch of a button or a flick of a switch? What about air suspension?

And are there custom tail lights and head lights?

The car i'm having now is a 2nd hand Toyota SEG(not sure what code) 1997, it is the same model in this picture.
http://www.eoa.com.my/comingpage/comingphoto/toyota.corolla.9068.front.jpg

Is it easy to find parts for modding the exterior of this car? (i.e crystal tail/headlights, bodykits, front grill) I'm scared that I have to rely heavily on custom parts.

Thanks again for your feedback.

for your exhaust needs, goto Ah Heng Exhaust in USJ industrial area. i recently did my exhaust there and i'm really impressed at how his workers handled the job. really neat and tidy job. for once i see ppl in the business whom are so into what they're doing.

give ah heng a call : 012.381.1331

friendly fella but i needed to bug him to get my exhaust on time. :P

*i'm promoting him because i'm a satisfied customer, and in no way related/affiliated with him*

Oh! That really cleared out where Grandpire and Nitro Design is. Thx. Btw, 2k for a custom bodykit sounds rather reasonable.

Time to check some stuff out this weekend. :)


Now another issue is air suspension or hydraulics. Anywhere to get them here? Cuz i'm scared the car will be too low and when it hits the bump, the bodykit will be scratched or something like that. Has anybody had this experience? If so, what did you do about it?

1. depends what mods you want. different places specialise in different stuff.

2. custom kits usually run anywhere from 2k UPWARDS. depends on the material you use and the complexity of the desired design. and of course, the quality of the workmanship.

3. NitroDesigns. airbrushing again depends on the complexity of the design. in any case, they rarely come cheap.

4. i assume you are refering to Adjustable Hydros (you watch too much 2F2F lerrr). i have yet to see ppl fit aftermarket hydros in Malaysia but in the States, they are extremely expensive (upwards of USD2000). basically it's like a Coil-Over without Coils, the coils are replaced by an Air-bag. if you got a money-tree though, you can check out http://www.kmwperformance.com

for the standard poor-man adjustables (no you cannot adjust them with simple switches), i recommend custom-built Titans. you can look for Ninja_Iga.

5. if you find a place to do custom headlights and taillights, tell me too. i've been sourcing for a year already.

I see. Anyway, another question. Are there any custom fabricators in Malaysia (preferably W/P or Selangor area)? I mean, is there any shops which can fabricate specific parts for the car, such as gearbox cover, dashboard, seats for the rear which match the Recaros in front?
