And watch them go up in arms about how they're knockoffs. lol A lot of people lost their minds when the knockoff GV lip came out.
But yeah, great price! Definitely watching this in anticipation of ordering a set.

Even if I don't get any sales over there, which Im sure I will, it will be entertaining to see them flip out.

Thought you were selling your car??....Your probably right that some people will make a stink...but many will still buy. I mean, its either spend $900 or spend $450...big difference. Having the opportunity to buy the originals for a decent price I jumped on it like white on rice, but if I didn't have that chance I would most certainly be buying replicas without a doubt!

I am selling my car. However, I'm 99.9% sure there will be a new project NA in the works sooner or later and I'll snag these while they're available.
There will be a stink, but there will be plenty of sales too. I was jealous when you snagged the originals, but the replicas will suit me just fine.

I dont blame ya...I am content with my bumper now anyways with all the work I have involved in the ducting....however this would be nice if you could reproduce and still turn a profit for less than Autokonexion is selling it for ($450 Shipped):

Autokonexion

Regular hood is now ready to be made and shipped out. Price will be $225 and probably cost around $100 to ship. I am getting quotes from fedex ground as well as fedex freight and central freight for this piece. I will let you guys know early next week on that.
