Default I found ground effects for my Bonny.

I feel that all Bonniville owners should know that there is this place in New Jersey that will custom make them if we can get one person to take their car there and have them do it.Please contact me if interested at [email protected]

Here is what they wrote me :
Hey there: In a never-ending quest to better serve our customer base, Wicked Bodies has recently launched a new and innovative custom kit program. It has become obvious that most of the progressively styled body kits on the market today are primarily manufactured for a limited list of makes and models. We receive hundreds of requests a month for high styled kits to go on cars for which no one makes anything. There are many makes and models out there that would look kick azz with a kit installed and yet there are no kits available. To this end, we have started the WICKED KIT PROGRAM. We will take the measurements of your car and find an existing kit for a different car that is close to the same and already on the market. We will then modify/customize that kit to fit your ride. This is an expensive project as the "donor" kit has to be purchased and then countless hours are required to custom fit that kit to your car. The cost including the "donor" kit can run between $3000.00 and $4000.00. The cost would be less for an add-on kit. This is a lot of money for a body kit. So Wicked Bodies is going to make you a partner! We will make a mold of the completed kit and sell the newly customized kit on our website. At this juncture, any kit we sell using the mold made for your car will earn you a $100.00 CASH REBATE. This rebate will remain in effect until you receive up to $2000.00 back on most models!!! In order to proceed with this program, we must have your car at our shop in NJ for three weeks. Call and ask for Edward for further information on this program. Wicked Bodies

Custom ground effects wouldnt be bad at all, but I would have to see what you have in mind before throwin them on my car. Would the kit include custom bumpers as well?

It would just be cheaper to make ground effects that fit our Bonneville'* in the first place.

I was thinking Silly Putty. It'* more pliable and can record the license plate of the car that hits you.

I have a company who will be making kits for our cars and soon there will be some showcasing, actually soon I will be requesting a car to be used to set up the new kit. They will also be making cheaper ram air hoods. Lots of fun to come.

It does, but it tastes saltier and cracks when it dries. Playdough does hold primer better than silly putty, though

And some forms of Silly Putty are a dilatant compound, which shatters at high impact, but is flexible under low stress, so careful with those putty effects.
