Body Kit or no?

Well my dad is buying this Grand am which he won off ebay this saturday...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...MEWN:IT&ih=006

The sc/t hood will be mine for 150 bucks he says and I am going to give him my stocker as well.
He has the bumpers to return the car to stock, so he will then have the kit just sitting there, He wants to know if I want the kit, (For a cheap price, and the spoiler)

I am unsure what I would like to do, the rear I dont like very much.. But the front I do, and could fill in the holes that people hate so much + paint everything for basically free. I dont know if I should go with the kit, or have him sell it seperately and just take the hood.

Those rims that guy has will be for sale as well because my dad doesnt want them, but anyway, little input here on what I should do?


O, the tails will also be mine for dirt cheap, which I plan to take, and tint.

Well since you say it wont cost you much I would do it as long as you fill the holes in.

What I think I might do is take the front of the kit off my dads hands, and possibly buy the 2 door side skirts and rear for that kit off aas.com.... Cuz that rear bumper is just not doing it for me...

Keeping the ribs on the sides, because I think it flows nice with that kit.

What do you guys think of that idea..

It looks okay, but not my taste in body kit, I like how the stock body kit looks on the GAGT's

I was going to tint them rather dark...

I wouldn't be keeping them like that.

So you probably wouldnt even be able to tell, I just wanted something different than stock... and since these would be dirt cheap... why not.

O well

As far as the tails go I will tint them myself, and if they dont look good I will just put them back on that car.

Just get the hood and tint those tails dark and I'll approve.

gtdreams hey everyone, I'm a newb!
The hood is good. The kit is not so good. However,you have to drive it and like what you are driving,so its your choice.I say burn the kit,burn it till its gone.
