Default Body Kits??? Yes or no?

Body kits??? Yes or no? I have a red 95 Bonneville SE (pics soon to come), and I'm looking to upgrade(or degrade, depending on your opinion) on the body style. Problem is, I'm not going to try anything without first seeing what something like that would like on somebody else'* Bonneville. Has anyone see anything like this, or know where I can see it for myself. Much obliged.

There was a discussion on some body kits awhile ago--here'* the link:
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...light=body+kit

The pic isn't showing up at the moment on the post but that might be a good start as far as our forums go -maybe. I don't know if it'll be helpful for you, but it'* a start.

Closest thing to a "body kit" compared to your model would be an SSE or SSEi. Right now there is nothing out there for the Bonneville enthusiests.

Which isn't really a body kit at all. More grooves, panels sit up higher, fog lights in the middle, and dual exhaust.

I dunno, I think a body-kit would not look all that good on our cars. They are a bit too big, if you want to alter the appearance, some rims, and maybe lower it some. Other than that the cars are fine.

Agreed, no kits...go with bigger rims and a 1.75 or 2in drop

Hey I'm all for making your car original, as long as you don't go 40" carbon fiber wing and all that yim yam. This is all I could come across http://www.aedcentral.com/forums/sho...ght=bonneville

AED is making a kit for the bonneville, not sure what years will be covered or if we can use a kit from a later model. I don't think so but I dunno.
