Default Body Kits for Newer Bonnevilles

Would anyone witha newer model Bonneville be interested in some kind of body kit ? I have a 2001 and I would buy one if it were available. Does anyone know of someone who could do this ? It'* just an idea

I don't think there'* any body kit made for the Bonnies.. the only way is to customize your own. ( i.e. you would need to know the dimension of either front side or rear skirt area ) and angle.. then ask one of the other manufacturers if any would fit within those dimension..

really not too much to tamper with when talk'n about the upper SLE-SSEi models I'd have to see that, the SE could use a body kit though,

I would have to agree with you about the SE needing a body kit. I think it would look bad ***. Does anyone know of a place that would do that ? I'm sure there are others who would be interested.

I know of a place and there are hoods scoops with functional ram air and a body kit can happen too. Because of the market the tooling always takes longer. As I type the pillar pods are being worked on and we should have a prototype next month. As for the body kit what do you want?

Do a photoshop or find other kits you like and it can be made. I can take single or small orders. Orders of 4-5 always reduce the tooling cost quite considerably.

Maybe some side skirts and a bumper for the SEs so that we can finally have cutouts for muffler tips! Nothing too fancy, and I dont think we need to rice it out or make it look like a catfish (as alot of body kits do these days )

Yes I agree with Macho Mike. Sounds like a good idea.

Ok for the 2000-2003 se then?

It will take a bit but I have a guy making hoods so we can set it up with 3-5 buyers. Obviously the first buyers will receive an at cost deal.
