    Custom Made Replica Bodykits

    Hey All

    Was just wondering if anyone has had any experience or no any companies that if provided with well all I have is photos from various angles but provided with pictures of a body kit that would be able to make it up as its been discontinued.

    I no costs are going to be rather high but if what I am asking even possible ??

    Cheers in advance.

    Yea but trying to find a company who may specialise in this or even a company that are willing to make a kit from photos is proving to be impossible.

    Going very different, I have a plan in mind just took a big hit when I was told today what I am after has been discontinued and no parts are even left over

    Hence may have to go down this route.

    Hmm just got a quote back for ALL the work I want done and umm yea is a wee bit pricey lol

    Here are the costs for your car:

    1)To fabricate custom arches and bumpers as per the Astra photos you supplied will be £5800 plus vat.
    2)To paint and fit DTM supplied spoiler will be £250 plus vat.
    3)To paint and fit supplied DTM wing mirrors will be £100 plus vat.
    4)To paint and fit bonnet extension that covers the window wipers will be £100 plus vat.
    5)To refurbish your wheels and paint silver will be £350 plus vat.
    6)To remove Vauxhall logo of boot lid, fill holes and paint bootlid will be £300 plus vat.
    7)To fit supplied VXR side repeaters will be £50 plus vat ( if done at same time as bonnet extension no.9)
    To supply and fit twin exit exhaust rear box as per supplied picture will be £550 plus vat.
    9)To modify bonnet in the way of slight extension over lights and modify wings by way of slight extension over headlights will be £650 plus vat.

    I have left the 3rd brake light price out as we would need to see it to work out what needs doing to make it fit.

    Total £8150 plus vat.

    If all the work was done together it will be £7750 plus vat.
