Body kits for 87' Camry?

I just bought this 87' Camry. It's super clean with 112000 miles on it. Just replaced the cv axles and struts. I'm trying to do some mods too it also if anyone know where dome good fender flares are let me know!

Any body modifications will have to be custom / customized. There were a few body kits back in the day, but those are LONG out of production (like, 20 years ago out of production).

I'd guess stuff from an Accord of similar years. Not sure though. Haven't thought about this stuff for a long time!

Back in the day! http://www.erebuni.net/custrides/camry88clint.htm

I have a JDM front bumper and Australian headlights/corner lights/grill/nose panel. Hard to find to import though... Oh, and the carbon fiber hood that is probably the only one left out there... (and some day I'll install the Euro OEM rear spoiler)

I still have those erebuni side skirts on my 90 Camry, going on 16...17 years now. Erebuni was helpful with good service when I ordered them and had a local paint shop paint and bolt on.
Could definitely ask Erebuni (assume they're still around from the link above?) what it'd take for them to produce another pair but can't imagine it's easy or cheap, especially if they tossed the molds. I recall some third party reselling Erebuni but don't remember names...Will update if it comes to mind.
I do recall the Honda Accord being most similar in size and maybe still has body kits in stock as it was likely more popular, but also likely need some work to fit well?

I think there's some sideskirts for the gen 3&4 Camry that will fit onto the gen 2. Can't remember the brand. I remember that jovon/ the 4th gen 3sgte guy had them on his Camry.

Some generic Z flares and fat wheels and tyres will do lots for looks.

I purchased KYB struts, front and back with new mounts and boots from Amazon (not a 3rd party reseller) 2 yrs ago and all seemed to work well. Was replacing KYB struts that have worn out over the years.
