Body Kit

What body kits are out there for a 986 these days?


I'm thinking about a lightweight hood and front bumper.


Any suggestions on how to do this classy?

How do you find a shop that can handle the installation & all those details? I saw your video and this is clearly more about installation than just buying a kit.

Yes, fantastic. I suspect it's out of my budget; and I don't need the rocket launcher. Since my car has an original RMS, it already has it's own oil slick generator...

Johnny D - Who makes that one? How can I get it?





Also, any opinions on Fiberwerks? http://www.fiberwerks.com/986_boxster.htm Their stuff looks interesting.




Thanks!!

Hamann makes it. It's the same one that's on the Dangermobile. If you're really serious about it, send me a PM.

Also, Fiberwerks are nice people, and they offer a good product. Hawkeye71 has their kit on his vehicle. Do a search on the forum and you'll find it.
