I talked to AED awhile back but they required a bigger input to make a kit. Ill call them and revisit the idea.

I will bring him a car next week. If all goes well I will have some sketches to show you. Then as a group you can critique the look.

Based on the drawing/look you go for we will get a cost and then you can decide from there. I have picked this builder because he is willing to work with us and is flexible.

Remember the Bonneville numbers are still small so the average shop will not build a kit due to the $$ return. This connection I use now will do this because he is not a big shop requiring big numbers we can (for more money) also have them done custom.

I will set up the first buy and pay for part of the tooling and prep. Then after that we can produce based on the need. Same way we do all the custom product we offer.

this will be really cool man. I'm a fan of body kits as long as the person who puts the kit on their car doesnt decide to put stickers all over it keep us updated ty.

Thanks for the update TY. Just let me know what else you find out. I am very interested in this. I'm sure we can get enough people together in this custom job.

I sent pictures of your car and of silver bullets car and I will be talking with the builder today and tomorrow and then we will take a trip to a dealership and play around a bit. Oh let me know what kind of scoop you would be interested in because we are making a set for my car that will have the ability to be functional and also just for looks. This way we can reduce the cost but not the look.

The scoop kit will either bolt on or "stick" on depending on your wish. The 3m tape works great but some people get wary of "tape" so we will offer bolts as well.

Anyway. Hope this gives you something to think about while we wait...and wait...lol

Thanks TY, can't wait to see the drawings. I would prefer a bolt on scoop. I would feel a little weary using tape. What else would you like to know ?

Default GXP look?

What about a GXP like kit for 2000-2003 Bonnevilles?

Would this be front/rear fascia and new rocker panels?

Ty,


would it be possible to get a body kit that looks similar to the GXP body panels ? I think that would be very nice looking.
