Default Bonneville Ground Effects

I heard some of you guys are having trouble getting ground effects made for your Bonnevilles. I would recommend this company: http://www.compusmart.ab.ca/fx/ Fx Designs. They made an outstanding kit for Berettas and are easy to work with, hope this helps you guys out with getting that kit made.

The SSE/SSEi and the newer SLE come with nice ground effects, and most of us are into true performance. Not many here are likely to add a heavy ground effects package that ends up slowing us down.

That, and there isn't anything on their site. Just GA'*, GP'*, T/A'*, but nothing Bonneville. Besides, a bonneville, just isn't a sleeper bonneville, when it doesn't look stock .

Besides the wing, they look pretty cool.

Lose the wing and paint the effect yellow, and it looks pretty pimp, IMO.

Looks like a matchbox car, the wheels look plastic, the paint looks like nail polish, and the ground effects look like a stupid ricer. POS IMO!

I've actually seen some body kits I liked. If done tastefully it will enhance the image of a car.
But the majority look like crap because stupid rice boy only buys one part of it and neglects to get it painted to match his car, and then when he comes on a parking lot thats not level with the road he smashes it into the pavement making it look even worse.

actually I was refering to to that body kit I saw awhile ago on here that makes the older Bonnevilles look like a new GXP .

and I know about the peformance (I am Machs friend )but I heard some of you guys where having trouble finding a company to take orders and do ground effects
