Blown Body Kit Development Updated Pics

We're nearing completion on the front bumper. I will have finished pictures on tuesday or wednesday. We'll then be working on the sideskirts and rear bumper.

it should be more curvy.

imo the part after the headligths is to fat need more curve on that and not so straight

looks very similar to the K2 front...
...modified with larger fog-lamp holes and a smaller condenser "mouth"

maybe, but it's not very practical to cover up the radiator (if it stayed in its stock position--and most people will tend not to get a custom radiator that can be relocated to the edges)

its funny, casue the front is supposed to look like the ferrari 360, and the rear of the K2 looks like the rear of a 360.

or maybe its just a really good look alike confused

from what i see of it--i like it. i've been wanting a spoiler that has a low profile and 'sticks' to the cars surface.

jon (carbon_blue_gt) developed one that was ok looking...but the people who purchasd it are having problems getting it into their hands anyway. definately something i will be interested in buying in the near future..i just finished paying off my body kit and the next thing is a spoiler to complement it thumbsup

The blown skirts are not even started yet. The skirts on the car are bomex replica skirts.

Bo whom designed the kit was working with me in the shop today on the fabrication. I made changes as he wanted them. We are still going to shave the side vents on the bumper and also make the center opening at the top match the sketches.

The bumper still does look boxy b/c none of the finish work and body lines have been done yet. The state now just shows raw fabrication and shaping.

You're probably less than half way complete working on the front design, but it really is heading in a good direction...

criticism is good - without it, you may not know how to make a better product. At least now you may be seeing some of the comments that could be doing your future kit sales "bad". While it's still in the production process, you will probably make several more adjustments to build your design much more unique from anything else already available and more desirable.

congrats rice lookin good thumbsup

spoiler pics will be shared when I complete it. We're working on that in the design phase still. It will be sold in Fiberglass and grade a carbon fiber. In the back it comes down over the celica garnish and then lips up over the tails. It will be available seperately or with the kit in a package deal.

The kit designer wants the sides of the bumper smooth. I agree too and with the flares the vent could be a problem.

I agree that it is too boxy. I mean after all this kit is suposed to mimic a ferrari! THey are NOT boxy at all. However, I also realize that you are not done yet.

If this kit turns out like the sketches...I WILL buy it. You have my word. That is unless it is crazy expensive...then no. But maybe yes. GAR!!!! thumbsup

yeah..thats why it's almost impossible to totally mimic a ferrari...you know as well as i (we both love exotics) that since the farreri 360 is mid-engine it doesnt need to worry about anything in the front except for the air scoops on the side of the front bumper that lead to the rear

this kit would be my next body kit if it looks exactly the same as the concept Blown.

Actually, it would be possible. You would jus have to make some sort of air scoop for the radiator. thumbsup
