If you have installed a body kit(partial or complete)post it here and let others know a little about it. This front end is a Caractere front nose piece. It is made of high impact plastic and can take a beating(I know mine has). To get the really clean look of this install make sure you seam seal the kit piece(requires repainting surrounding areas). The rest of the kit includes side pods for rear of rocker panel, rear bumper piece(with center exhaust), rear wing, and upper spoiler, and can be found on Landspeeds site.

I'm probably going to put the rest of the kit on after Christmas,
my money's going to a computer upgrade right now.
Pics coming tomorrow.

Do those ATS side skirts and bumper attach with anything other than tape? I'm a bit worried they'll fall off when I get them, but the spoiler has the bolts on it, so I know it's not going anywhere.

Also, how much lower is the car with the ATS parts?

The skirts use 3M tape a series of screws into each fender, however we used an urethane adhesive to mount them, since tape can be problematic. If when you speak of the bumper you are refering to the rear valance, then it uses 3M tape and brackets to support it. However if you mean the front bumpers, they are replacement parts that required many hours on 4NToy's and my behalf to get the fitment to factory quality.

As for the side skirts being lower , they are a bit lower than the factory rockers, however I am not sure how much, but I can tell niether of our cars have clearance issues around here, and we both have significant suspension modifications. The rear valance is quite low and can pose a problem if you are not careful, however I will say it again our suspensions are modified and the cars a quite low to begin with, so take it for what it is worth. If you want actual measurements, as to how far below the factory parts the ATS parts sit I can get them for you.

As for the backup lights we deleted them.

Thanks alot about the ATS part, that really helps. I don't plan on doing any suspension mods, so I should be okay. I wonder if you could combine the ATS front lip with another front bumper....

Marvin is correct...Wings West, the fit is pretty good.

The colored inserts I make (they fit 2001 and back), I own a small graphics company and I designed and installed the flames myself, I just got tired of them. I have another design in mind but I need to repaint the front of my car due to rock chips before I start another design.

Thanks for confirming the bodykit, and I know what you mean about rock chips. I think I'm going to get my front end done when I get a body kit. Good luck with the new scheme!

Projektzwo Wide Body. High impact plastic front and rear. This kit looks great installed, but the wide body flares do require cutting one inch off the factory bodywork. The kit is very high quality and required no modifications for a great fit. 25mm FK spacers were used to push out the wheels to the new fender lips. To give you and idea how nice this kit is, there is a rear tie down relocator that bolts to the existing unit. The spoiler is a Wings West One Piece that requires drilling and bolting on.

My brother installed it in November of 2001, before he gave the car to me, so it has been on the car a long time, he paid over $500 then, so $800 seem about right.
