I'd be interested too.
Does anyone have the capability/facilities/contacts to fabricate them? Looks like O.P. isn't making them anymore...

You could try pm'ing dan - he is still active on the forum - but given the hassle he received manufacturing these, he may not be up for another run!

Sorry for the delayed response guys. Had lots of messages over the past few months, so apologies if I've not replied to any of them, been so busy with work I've not had time to make any more.

I will, however, be making more of these very soon. I'm not sure on price just yet as will need to use a different powder coater. I am hoping to keep the price the same if possible.

Rather than start a group buy thread, I'm going to sell these in the "for sale" section.

Will let you know when they are ready!!

Hi Jingle, sounds interesting. Can you post a picture of what it looks like?

It's not everybodies cup of tea and is seriously over the top, but I kinda like it :fuelfire:

It's a lot more complicated but looks pretty simple all the same once you had the templates.....

That would be simple to make from what I can see. The best thing would be to buy one and copy it :fuelfire:

If there was enough interest I would buy one and could then make exact copies

I'd be interested!

Image

However I'd be concerned with the height? Mines running a stock ride-height set up and currently the front occasionally has issues with clearance. So I take the speed bump slow with the front, then ease up because I know the rear has more clearance and therefore take the speed bump with the rears at slightly more speed (emphasis on slightly, I don't fully open up!). I'm sure you know what I mean.

The problem is that the diffuser looks quite low?

Image

As I'm a daily I wouldn't want to drive excruciatingly slow over bumps... It still needs to be practical. Also I wouldn't want to damage the diffuser going over a bump.

Completely agree kis, although that black coupe is probly very low so exaggerates it. Would also be very interested in this! Even if the design was tweaked and was slightly less protruding etc, defo something to look into :fuelfire:

I have one of these I'd be happy to sell.
It's a black one, I struggled to fit it and it's sat here in the box unused.
I'd prefer collection as I struggke to get to Post Office due to working hours.
Alternatively I'll be at he upcoming Scottish runs/meets so can take it there.
£30??
