The 82-83 had the ‘subtle’ style and the 84-86 had the billboard. The billboard in your photo above is positioned too high
will post a pic of my car, the pics are from the Zen Graphics website and I was told mine is too high alsoThe 82-83 had the ‘subtle’ style and the 84-86 had the billboard. The billboard in your photo above is positioned too high
please post pics when you can and I will post some of my current when I canMine is an 83 which should have what you put on. As I recall (same as Spud said,) they had the smaller "Celica Supra" lettering on the right through 83 and then went to the big billboard in 84. But I put the big, billboard on mine anyway because that's what I remember seeing on these as a kid and I thought it was cool. Yours being an 85 would have had the big, billboard but what you have done looks great and I am a big zen graphics fan. Their choices and quality are top notch. It was the only place I found that could do two tone with a main color and a border if you want it. Love mine. Looks good but choices choices. If you go billboard there is the one person on eBay that does the translucent design and one on etsy that does the non-translucent but a bit more correct. I went with the ebay gold translucent as it looks cool in the dark and still matches my gold well enough in the day. If you do the billboard my tip is to measure top to bottom and the sides and mark them off with blue tape so you can line it up will. You may have to trim around the keyhole on the hatch and should if you have it lined up correctly per stock (again in agreement with Spud)...they were positioned a bit lower and trimmed a bit around the "P" on the keyhole.
Mine is probably even slightly high per stock but I liked this positioning. If it doesn't go over the keyhole a little it doesn't quite look right. My tail lights are a dead giveaway that it's an 83 and should have the other graphics but I don't care, I wanted the billboard and only someone on here would ever know. Both of those sources...the eBay and the etsy people do them in multiple colors so pick your favorite. I actually ordered both. Again the eBay is translucent (reflective at night) but the etsy is slightly more original looking and that seller gave me two as well so you get a backup in case you mess up!please post pics when you can and I will post some of my current when I can

I like the contrast on yours. Makes me consider possibly red on my black. Do you know what the OEM was on the black? I would have thought silver or white. Thank you again.Mine is probably even slightly high per stock but I liked this positioning. If it doesn't go over the keyhole a little it doesn't quite look right.

Hmmm? I'm not sure what the OEM billboard lettering color would have been on black in those years. Maybe someone here knows? I'm guessing white or gray / silver. I will say I have seen red on black but depending on the color of red it can get a bit buried in the black...not a ton of contrast with if you get the wrong red. on the other hand, the red would match the Celica Supra logos well.I like the contrast on yours.

Gray may make more sense than silver.LifeForLife's black 85 has red pinstripe that looks great, so maybe that color red in the lettering and then red pinstripe or hockey stripe graphics of the same red would be sharp. A sharp, bright red is what is needed, not a darker red that blends with the black too much in my opinion. See LifeForLife's current build thread.
will try that again, thank youDo a thread search on Billboard, you will see many exemples of color and position.
iirc, on black cars they were gray.
you had mentioned that in my intro thread tooThat is waaaay too high!
