    Considering that we have not started to make the final parts I cannot tell you what the cost will be (Time /Materials) All of the engineering and design I am paying for(19 months worth) and in no way will it be incurred into the final product cost. We have made countless parts and used tons of material (fiberglass,metal,body filler,etc...)I started this project for me and only me(a one off) but after much consideration decided that other V owners might be interested,and from the response in the last year it looks like so.Compared to the other options out there for this car regarding flares /body enhancements this kit will give you a complete fender a complete bumper, a complete rear bumper,full rear quarters, and complete rocker panels,Where as the other options only give you stick on's sort a speak you still would have to cut front feners to install the other options. So giving you a Ballpark even a large ballpark would be unrealistic. If I give you pricing to high it throws the possibilityof ruining someone's dream to have this. If I price it too low then I look like an idiot, so since I really would prefer to have the exact numbers for this, even I will have to wait to find out. I know this does not answer your question, but bear with me

    Thanks!!!

    UPDATE:

    We are working on the final molds for the production parts. The photo shows the heat extractor hood which we have reinforced to handle multiple parts to be made.If you look closely you can see the outline of the vents. This hood is made to reduce engine temps and to provide downforce by reducing pressure under the engine compartment.The goal is to have all the molds finished by Jan 1 (well there goes Christmas and New Years) and to make the first set of production parts there after.

    Thanks for all of your interest...........

    Shouldn't you be paying GM or Pratt & Miller for it?

    There are differences with ours compared to the race car, but the purpose is the same," Extract Heat' and provide more front end "Downforce".This hood will be offered as a option and NOT part of the Widebody kit.

    Do you think the side skirts will be able to accommodate side exit exhaust?

    Re: Project "VANQUISH" Widebody kit for CTS-V

    Its almost Christmas!!! I hope to see that pricing soon as my V was totaled and I am trying to decide if I should buy it back. New bolt on fenders could make the decision easier. Can we see a few more pics? The insurance people will be calling me Tuesday and I need to know. Every panel on my car is ruined. Even though I wanted to go stock, this could be good if it looks good and is priced right. I saw some CTS kits going for 1K. If its like that, I'm in. If its 5K, I'm out. I need some pics!!! Will this have significant weight savings or is it gonna be thick. I also wonder about the side exhaust. I always liked that in the Gen. 1 CTS-VR.
