Okay, so I've been waiting to do this for 2 years, and 2 S197s, but the time is almost here.
I'm planning on doing a C-Series Front Fascia on my 2007 GT/CS. Depending on how much the repairs cost from the dent I received last night at the movie theater, I should be able to make the purchase at the end of next week.
I'm kind of modeling this car after SaddleUps, as was the original plan...I don't want to copy her obviously, but as far as body pieces it's going to be a similar look, so that I can keep my Pypes Mid-Muffler system running out the back, while still keeping the C-Series Front balanced out along the sides and rear of the car, height wise.
So here is the current list of parts. It is unfinished, because I'm unsure what I need to do to the rear of the car to balance it out.
Part #8013 C-Series Front Bumper Kit
Street Scene Side Skirts
This is what SaddleUp did to even out the sides with the front. I'm not 100% sold on these side skirts. Are there any other options as far as side skirts go that I should check out? Most of them are just too flashy and ricey looking.
That's it right now. I'm scared the rear won't balance out though. SaddleUp used the Street Scene rear valence piece as well, and it evens it out, but she was working from a stock GT, and I'm starting with a GT/CS.
I found this picture from a guy that just had the Street Scene Side Skirts installed with a GT/CS rear.
Any opinions on that? Obviously the front is unbalanced, but it won't be the case on mine since the C-Series Front will even it out. Does the rear look out of place in that photo?
Any other ideas? I'm sticking with the stock hood for now and hopefully going with one of the TruFibers a bit down the road, a month or so hopefully.
What does everyone think of the plans so far? Any alternate ideas?
