Looking for Veilside's missing companion (Tater Rear Diffuser)

I finally got my Celi painted (PICTURES WILL BE UP SOON) and the Taters (Eric) Front VS diffuser installed. The guys at the body shop were stunned by the way the Carbon Fiber diffuser matches the Carbon Fiber Hood and the way it stands out on a black car. I received many complements on the fitment and the quality but they were all asking me Why didnt you get the rear one? Thats when I started wondering, Why didnt I? confused The more I look at it. The more I feel that it needs its companion. frown How many of these where made? Maybe you guys can help me track someone that is willing to sell theirs. By the way, I already asked celimangts17 and he said NO. Well, his exact words were Maybe in a couple of years but I cant wait that long. Please HELP cry

The body shop cutoff the piece from my original VS bumper and bolted this one on in its place. I dont think its called bolted-on but its very similar to it.

I will be posting pictures of my Celi hopefully this weekend because the weather hasnt helped much in Jersey. However, you cant really make it out in pictures because its a black car. It must be seen in person to appreciate how awesome it really looks on a black kit.

I dont think its called bolted-on but its very similar to it. Theres a word for it, I guess body shop guys have their own lingo. Tater even said the word to me once when he explained how it was installed but I dont remember the word he used. Well, you get the idea.

Really??? confused I thought the part I circled from your car was in made Carbon Fiber. I know that you have one piece blocking the grill made in Carbon Fiber but I could've sworn Tater made the piece I circled also in Carbon Fiber. Maybe, Tater could answer my question, I will PM him. Thanks again

Stun,
You may have seen pics of the Carbon Fiber rear pan but Ill be dammed if I can find a decent pic of one right now. Below is a pic of one covered in dust and uncleared. It is the entire pan and not just the center as you were thinking. Dont ask, Im not making that part at any price.

that sucks that you cant get someone to do it, go to a shop and get it custom made, its probably going to be a lot but its worth it, good luck thumbsup

I was thinking about it but not everyone has skill with Carbon Fiber. Im not really sure of any shop around here that wraps in Carbon Fiber idunnoand to have my rear bumper shipped to another state and then having it shipped back is going to cost me a pretty penny. frown Im going to have to research it a little more if Im going to get it custom. cry
