Group buy: Wide-body kit - 8th gen coupe

Hello Everyone,
Lets get a list going!!

My name is Michael, and I am setting up a Group Buy for an exclusive aero kit for the 8th Gen Accord Coupe.
This is a wide-body kit, reminiscent of the Rocket Bunny FR-S kit

I have been working closely with a body-kit manufacturer, and we are now looking to move to the next step.
Development of this kit will require proof of interest from this community.

Deposits Required:

10+ people: $500 deposit
15+ people: $350 deposit
20+ people: $250 deposit

Details:
-Kit will be 8-10 pieces
-High Quality FRP, possible Carbon Fiber option
-GT wing not included

MSRP/Final Pricing
-Pricing for the entire 8-Piece kit will be $1500-$2500
-Deposit will go towards final purchase of the kit
-Final pricing will be determined after the prototype kit has been produced

Rendering:

Just a heads up there is a 50 dollar deposits for group buys. Not sure if you already did all the paper work for it.

Of course, everybody wants to see how this comes out, but we need deposits to get it made.

This kit will be expensive to ship, but well worth it for all the hardcore 8th gen guys.

This is about as close to the final draft as you're going to see. Before the prototype is made.

I already have PM'd and emailed Chris over at My8thGen but have not received a response...at all. So if you know the guy let him know I'm trying to get the GB organized over there as well, thanks.

No the project is not dead.

I have already spoken with a body kit company that will be commencing the project after SEMA.

Part of the reason is because my car is going to SEMA and there was no time to complete it before then...

Will keep everyone updated once the development starts.
