Default Group Buy: Autokonexion NB Widebody

So here it is! Finally its done and the group buy can commence. We are looking for 8 people for this GB in order to send the kit off to the molder.
Heres the facts:

1. Cost: The GB pricing will be $1200 plus $175 shipping.

2. Components: You will be getting a front bumper, replacement front fenders, side skirts, rear rear flares, inserts for the front fender to side skirt opening, and a lip for the underskirt of the rear bumper.

3. After we get the specified 8 people for the GB, we will be taking non refundable deposits in the mount of $400.00 and then the kit will be sent off to the molder. Until we reach the 8, there will be no deposits needed.

4. There is room for 10 in the GB but for now, we are starting with getting at least 8.

5. The kit will take at least 2 - 3weeks for the mold to be finished. After that, the kits themselves should be ready to ship with in 5-7 days a piece, possibly sooner.

6. There will be optional add on pieces to this kit as time progresses and they will be worth while performance pieces for sure. (larger front lip, splitter, rear diffuser etc.)

The kit will be made in fiberglass. Any other compounds such as carbon fiber or kevlar need to be called in and are NOT reflected in this group buy and are a special order item if they become available.

This thread will be updated with pictures as they are available. For now here is what the kit will look like:

Or a cammed ls1.

Something that would warrant some sticky *** 275's

Otherwise it'd be a cr.net car

They aren't what they are cracked up to be..... and even taller 235's will fill the back end out rather well.

**** that looks hot. While the bodykit itself may cost a nut and an arm, I would gladly pay the price but hell, it would cost the other nut to ship overseas so it's a no-go!
