i think there like the supras 82-85 will fit but 84-85 have a lip at the bottom and the earlier ones do not. they still match up just might stick out an inch or so at the bottom front end. like 95% sure on these but someone please correct me if im wrong.

What research did you do before you bought them? Have you matched them up to the car yet? What do you think?

Celica-gts.com/forums is not down now.

Also did your GT come with the fiberglass flairs, or are you trying to add them to the car? If they came stock with the flairs, they will swap on with no problems, but if the car did not, there is some work to be done to make them work correctly.

82 & 83 flares are different from 84 & 85 right where they meet the front bumper cover. The 84-5 have a curve that the earlier ones don't. Ive seen people with the wrong ones on because that's all they could find, it's better than running around without any

If your car did not come with them and you did happen to get a set of flares off of a Celica, you will have to do a decent amount of cutting and drilling, unless if you are going for "rice" and just want to slap them on the car.


If they did come from a Supra, you will not be able to get the fronts to work without it looking funny since they are different that the GT-S front flares, but the rears are the same, but it may look a little funny running rear flares and none up front.

You will also have to so some cutting in the back, the sheet metal between the GT and GT-S is completely different in that area.
