Default Body kits??

You can go ahead and judge me haha.
I wanna know if there are any body kits or other things similar for a 2000 ssei bonneville.
I've looked everywhere and then wondered if a grand prix body kit would fit on the bonnie?
I'm also a sucker for carbon fibre so if you guys know where to get sweet carbon fibre accessories I would be happy to know

absolutely nothing available for the interior or exterior of the SSEi, unless you want to upgrade to the GXP body panels and carbon fiber inserts

everything you see on this site, is custom made by the owner

Damn haha I was hoping you wouldn't that.
So a grand prix kit wouldn't fit?
I wanna do this kinda stuff to my car just to make it look absolutely insane but I don't have the slightest clue how to do it myself haha.

Oh, don't tell me you're in Edmonton, Canada. I was hoping I could help you personally. If you ever come down to IN, my friends and I could help out. I don't have anything to show with my car because as it was said, these are granny cars. But it would be fun, possible, and not ugly (by your opinion at least )

Sadly I am in Canada haha so it would be quite a drive.
Help me, How so?
Because, like the average 17 year old, I'm really interested in tuner cars (I know the rest of you can make fun of me if you want ) but I just think it would be sweet to have a Bonnie like that.
It'* unique and completely different, no one else has that.

It'* fairly easy to set up some body kits. If I ever get a hold of a 2000+ Bonneville for long enough, I'll be sure to try and make a mold to send you if you're still interested. Is there anyone honestly interested in the 92-99 style, body kit wise?

Really? Have any pics from previous attempts or any complicated bodywork in general?

No pics yet. For our 92-99 Bonnevilles, the fiberglass body kits attach via plastic to the fenders and screw onto the metal. At those holes, you can get sheet metal all around to match the inside shape of the bumper cover that matches OE. Then, take it off and add onto it whatever shape body kit you want.

I don't do fiberglass, but I know people that do. Whoever does fiberglass in your area can most likely add to the metal. Sometimes, like in contemporary housing when you put metal into concrete to hold wood, you can add brackets to the metal to hold the fiberglass. Now, I can vouch for the fiberglass being "hard," but it'* still pretty doable since most pros can do a 24-hour turnaround time.
