    No that is not the same place rookie went to. Autoexplosion is the shop that did rookies custom wide body. Looks almost like an exact copy.

    Dam that's funny. We're putting a non- widebody bumper onto Marks FX soon too. I don't like their lower vents. Too oblong, the vent style we used was close to being a mirror of the FX headlight and grille orientation.

    Imitation is not a horrible thing. The big upside of what we did, we didn't do it to make money. :biggrin:

    Viet, is Mark doing just the front or everything?

    We only have a front piece ready to go. I didn't think there would be any kind of demand for a kit really. The front is only available cause I wanted 2 bumpers in the beginning and that was the easiest way to make them both identical.

    I can probably figure out what lower bumper used.

    My opinion, they took away too much of the upper FX bumper for it to flow correctly. that's the look we were trying to avoid, any kind of blunt front, or snow plow style lower was not going to cut the mustard.

    Let's see them do this.

    I think it looks pretty decent, but no one will top the OG.... I'd put that kit on if it looks anywhere close to Rookie's car. :cool:

    I see the thread starter from the org has registered here. :)

    Once their bumper is painted or at least 1 solid color the lines will be more visible.

    That doesn't look anything like Rookies kit. I can see were they tried to make it look like his kit but they failed. Its too squared off at the edges and the openings look oval and do not flow with the grille and headlights . Look at the center opening of Rookies kit and how it flows with the grille. Look at the sides openings were the fogs would be and how they flow with the headlights. The bottom of Rookies is not squared off but had a nice spoiler and makes the front end look lower.

    Ya know after taking a closer look at the the kit on Rookies FX, im once again saying wow.......what detail.

    Waitin for a kit but that poser kit is not the one.:err:

    i think they left too much of the original bumper maybe thats why it doesn't flow...either way i want to see how this looks in the end. you never know it might be pretty good...

    I think it's better then the other weird kits we have seen on the org. But agreed not as nice or looks like it belongs on the FX as rookies, but a very good attempt nonetheless.
