GB: 2003 replica c-one style lip: who's interested?

8/25

due to recent advice from some of you, i have come to realize that Fiberglass wouldn't be the smartest choice in fabricating this replica. i am now considering the idea of creating this lip out of Urethane or FRP. the numbers still need to be worked however, so this group buy still is not guaranteed. i will still be working hard on the prototype in the interim. thanks!

----------
what's up people... long time no see.

i just wanted to take a head count of anyone who would be interested in buying if i started a group buy for a 2003 replica c-one style front lip.

this lip fits over the stock bumper and allows you to keep that unique 2003-2004 grill while having a more aggressive and lower lip.

this GB is not guaranteed. i simply would just like to get an idea of the demand if i were to start one. thanks everyone! smile

interested in 2k3 lip(no commitment, don't trip):

to make it clear, the 03+ bumper and 00-02 bumpers are different..so to end all "will this fit my 00-02 questions"..it will not. 00-02 people already have the WW kit, now its our turn for the 03 lips grin

oh and also..post up a price. i got quoted 600 shipped from japan for the lip..but then again 200+ of that 600 is for freight charges..so base your pricing on that

i received my authentic 2003 c-one lip for $500+ from KOZZ TUNING. however, this would be a potential group buy for people who are interested in buying a replica lip for a lot cheaper. i am considering investing in producing these based off of the real thing.

also, now that you guys mention it, the 2000-2002 lips would sell pretty well. this may be something i may look into in the future.

as of now, i am working with a proffessional fabricator to produce a prototype version of the lip. a price will be determined upon completion of this replica. thanks for all of the feedback smile

thank you..im not one to support replicas..but i just can't afford an authentic c-one lip right now. well i can, just not the shipping grin so until c-one gets a distributor in the US(which will probably never happen)..it looks like this is my route.

yes, the rest of the kit should fit fine. if there is enough demand for the entire kit, i may end up producing it.

i totally understand you about not being able to afford the shipping from japan. i've always felt there should be a replica for this lip ever since i saw it. but since no one has stepped up to the plate, i've decided that i'd try my hand at it.

I'd want one if the quality is good. ^^ if you want the full C-one kit go to ViSracing.com and check out the zyclone kit. Its the same thing only american made and vis is extremely good quality with perfect fitment (so i hear). But your not gonna find the front lips there but since they did make the C-one copy maybe they'll make a copy of the lip too eventually.

I think I would be interested in a replica full 2k3 c-one kit. If it doesn't cost much and fits really well- that would be very awsome

sorry to say, but this shyt is exactly why C-ONE doesn't want their products to reach U.S. shores.

You'd need to make a replica out of FRP to get this to work. The real C-ONE front lip takes too much bending and precise fitment/wrapping around the stock foglight holes to pull off properly with regular Fiberglass without cracking during the install.

Thanks for contributing to keeping authentic JDM products for the Celica from reaching U.S. shores through an authorized distributor who can offer us pricing closer to Japan retail. rolleyes

true.

but if it didnt cost a testicle to buy it, then people would buy the authentic rather than replicas.

VS FFGT replica w00t w00t grin
