996 Custom Body Kits

While down in Southern California visiting an old pal he showed me his latest build and his body kits he's making to sell. This is his prototype, not yet finished.

I think the silence tells the story. I'm sorry but that is really unattractive, too bulbous.

Looks similar to some of the 300zx nissan kits. It needs a big wing to be balanced visually.

That is the most hideous thing Iíve ever seen. The bloated panels donít even conform properly to the body underneath it, there are gaps in it. Itís the really poor manís RWB!

^^^ Yep. No comparison whatsoever. The old friend should stick with his day job. If he really thinks his kits will sell, then he should try selling his prototype 996 first to see what kind of responses he gets from it.

I am not sure I would call that "right". The rear bumper looks like a stretched stock one that shows some odd flexed areas.... And the rocker extensions... ummmmmmmmm
