What kind of body kit is this?

Sup guys. I can't find this kit anywhere. Not sure who makes it. Thought it was the WingsWest at first, but it's different. Anyone know the name? And if so, is it polyurethane or fiberglass? Just a lip kit or full front and rear bumpers? Thanks

Okay ya it is the Kaminari kit. Is it polyurethane or fiberglass? Only place I've found it for sale so far is the Kaminari website for almost $1000. Anyone know a cheaper place?

What did they do to that Accord?! *cries* kind of... icky if you ask me (that one not the kit). The center tail light would have been way cool if they just did those circles but they replaced the triangles as well *sigh*.

and the kit is the Kaminari as stated above.

I remember seeing that car at Seattle HIN last year...i liked the interior the most about the car, the outside is a lil too wild for my tastes

kaminari kits are made from high quality fiberglass... won't break easily.... fitment is also perfect

yeah that's a Kaminari.....but I don't have the front things (looks like it's connected to the mesh grill)



the early edition ones are fiberglass....I think all the ones they do now is polyurathane

EDIT: hey VINCE shouldn't you be busy entertaining family

Personally I think its a good thing they modified the trangle lights as well. At night the lights wouldn't flow if they kept the triangles

I think they are all still just fiberglass. It might be high quality but fiberglass is fiberglass and i wouldnt want to deal with it. 1g for fiberglass is just simply insane.

Family was just in for Sunday so no more entertaining!

its $1000 because its high quality fiberglass, and plus the fitment is superb compare to all the knock off, and more important, i dink its patent or only kamanari has it (don't hold me to that though) ...

Its Kaminari. Got the same one back in '99. Its fiberglass. Mine's need to be repaired. I saw thinking of getting something different, but think I'll get it repaired and molded in too.

I've never been a fan of the wide body tucking over the wheels stuff.. it just doesnt look right.. wide body = good .. covering up part of your wheel = ugh

I am looking at getting an Accord coupe again -- this bodykit only fits on the 98-00 coupe bumpers.

If I purchase a 01-02, can I just replace the stock bumpers with 98-00 stock bumpers using the same hardware/mounting locations? Or is modification required?

Thanks

The taillights are unique and I like how they are molded in. However, what throws the whole thing off is how the spoiler is molded into and already molded taillight.


In case any of you were wondering, the reason this car sits as low as it does is from the effects of gravity on Bondo.

I switched from 02 to 00 bumper, there is no mods necessary for this swap.

i wouldnt garuntee that youll get it tho. dont order anything from them, they suck, and so does their customer service, which you would find out when you order something and a month later you still wont have it. ive seen numerous HORRIBLE reviews for these guys. im one of their victims, and i would advise against ordering from them. youre better off flushing your money. but back OT, i love the kaminari kit on coupes, it looks so nice. its the only one id get if i had a coupe.
