HELP:OEM SS GFX on a V6

Has anyone done this before ??? Or know if it can be done with some light modification to the front gfx piece. From everything I've read on here people are always saying no! That you have to find the gfx v6. However I've spoken to some bodyshop owners who say they can do it can people please chime in !!!

What do you KNOW!!! not heard

The side skirts and rear diffusior will work. The front splitter wont as it is made slightly different for SS. I wouldnt get a bodyshop to do it cuz even if you put on the correct splitter for your bumper, people have had them come loose and fall off.

Sides and rears will work. I would use the piece made for your car and try to avoid having any body work done anywhere or modifications to pieces... or use a different splitter from another company you may like more

When I did mine it came with the SS mounting strips by mistake. We spent a couple weeks figuring out why the strips did not fit the fascia or the spoiler. Luckily the owner of the body shop had a SS and they fit to his car perfectly. After arguing with the supplier for a while they sent the correct mounting strips. What a royal P.I.T.A.

Why would you want to do this?

How much would the body shops charge to adapt the V8 spoiler?

Nearly anything can be done with $$$$. Do not see the logic in paying just as much for the parts. Then paying extra to fit the wrong part. Maybe it looks ok, maybe not. Definately will have to be attached in a custom way, maybe it will be reliable, maybe not. Likely has to be molded to the fascia, that means repainting more than just the spoiler.

Then again I've spent a lot of money on my vehicles that did not make sense to a lot of people....
