I love Vertex...not too noisy,and probably the smoothest lines you'll ever find on a bodykit...

One can't even live without DRIFT AERO, much less drift! I always carry a bumper with me, at all times...

Drift Body Kits?.. yeah. I got one for free when I bashed my car into a concrete wall on one of the local mountains. It's called Crash SPL aero and comes complete with custom crumpled fender, scratched bumper and dented quarter panel.

What's with the posers?

I'm going to be making body kits, but they're mostly going to be for weight reduction and improved ducting rather than bling rice-ness... (by "body kits" I mean front air dams and difussers with minimal emphasis on side skirts or wings that do nothing)

Shop setup has been going slowly since I'm working another job and going to school, but I gaurantee that they will be hardcore when they're complete.

I know I've been saying it for a while, but starting a company takes a lot of work - Keep an eye out for Mr. Anlet Aero!

Please get a car first... :rolleyes:

If you get the Rx7, I'm thinking you may just need to change your screen name.

Back at my apartment in Tampa, I have virtually EVERYTHING for the AE86 including trunklid, fenders, hood, grille, bumper, and even the trunk cover.

Any idea of what you would want?

MR- If you make a good-fitting S13 Silvia Aero front bumper I will buy it. (Even if I don't have the coupe yet, it's an elusive beast.) It has plenty of cooling area, yet is low-profile... the ultimate in functionality. Remember this: some of us want function over form, so make some very light hoods, (the ability to latch is unnecessary because I'll probably take out the latch mechanism and use pins anyway) stock-size fiberglass fenders, S13 coupe trunklids, and maybe some 20mm wider stock-looking fenders.

^ This is essentially my mission statement.

The Aero I make is going to be cheap, tastefull and durable. the AE86 and S13 are the first two platforms that will have parts, followed by FC, Cressida, Miata, Starion, and others as requests come in.

I am a hardcore proponent of functionality over form, and even though I do have some designs for crazy-looking stuff, I'm not going to make it unless it it benefits something mechanically. I'm also working on designs for brake duct kits, lightweight dashboards, lightweight battery relo-kits & hold-downs, and another invention that will serve triple-duty as intercooler mount, air dam saver, and towhook mount.

I can't be positive as to when things will be available becasue, as I said, there are other things on my agenda, but parts will be coming over the next few months. If all goes well I should soon have a website up that will show pre-production pictures and may facilitate pre-orders or (at the very least) a mailing list.

I'll be sure to keep everyone updated and will add you to the list.

I'm very open for suggestions as to what people would like on their cars. Group buys will be particurlarly beneficial becuase of how much work goes into making each mold. If I can sell 10 of one style the price could be as little as 50% of the projected price for individual sales.

Thanks for the support!

Yes, there's more than just body kits. I think it would be pretty hard to find an aftermarket S15 kit as well around here.

If you do get a 240SX I like the Sileighty conversion..

MR- By Silvia Aero, I mean the factory Aero package front bumper, like this: http://img78.photobucket.com/albums/v239/OppositeLock/Random/aerofrontend.jpg
Brake duct kits are almost so simple to make that you shouldn't even bother, although I would like a kit that forces air into the vanes of the rotor, expelling hot air out.
Lightweight dashes would be great, especially if you made them for the S13 because so many S13s have cracked dashes.

Um not that i like ordering car parts from Ebay, but they have a wide selection of body-kits, I was just looking at some for the 240sx.
