    Default Body kit for 1988 turbocoupe

    Hey guys,

    I have an McK body kit for my 88 turbocoupe and plan to start making my own with fiberglass (using the McK kit as a mold) soon as no company makes it for our cars anymore. I just want to see how many people are interested to see how much materials to order. I don't know what I will charge yet, more details to come...

    Pics can be seen here until I get my pics up. (The red car)

    Best bet would be to only get enough to re pop 2 or 3 at first. You should be able to see those After that I would take orders and do batches of #?

    A lot of people have talked about doing this and I cant remember one that came though yet.

    Pics are going to be a must.

    I plan on doing this soon. I think I'm going to order enough supplies for 5 kits and start from there. I just want to make sure there is interest before I start, and there will be LOTS of pics.

    it all depends on what you think it may cost. Try to come up with a preliminary estimate, many of us would like them i'm sure, but if the price is extreme, many of us may not be able to afford them.
