Motivated buyer looking for custom body kits!

I just ordered my '10 Camaro and can't decide between an aftermarket or OEM body kit. Does anyone out there have suggestions? Any links or pics are welcomed. Thanks!

Thanks buddy. I connected with Garys Customz in Florida and he carries a few kits. I also have a guy here on the West Coast who might make me a custom body kit, giving it a one-of-a-kind look. I will post the pics when everything is ready. Thanks again!

Out of all the body kits I've seen on the site I prefer the factory kit. I like how the sideskirts flare outward and flow with the car. I know a lot people hate the back, but I think it looks pretty damn cool. The front looks cool on or off from photos I've seen. If you get factory I'd check the for sale threads and see if anyone is selling theres cheaper than what GM wants for them. I also think this kit looks a million times better painted to match on most colors. Here's mine with factory gfx painted to match.





A guy on here has a red jewel camaro with cyber grey stripes and unpainted factory GFX and it looks amazing. He also has that expensive factory rim upgrade with the dark wheels that match too. Amazing.






Also, if you are a do-it-yourselfer you can get the instructions and paint/install them yourself. A guy on here installed/painted his own on his victory red. Came out nice.

Razzi kit is another good one because it looks nice and its much cheaper than the factory GFX. I think some people are selling them for less than $800.00 unpainted. I really like the rear and front of that kit, but I get lost on the sides.
Sick rear

Sick front

Weird (in my opinion) sides


Another interesting option is mix-matching kits. Some kits offer individual pieces for sale. Another guy (JJ) on here with a victory red mix-matched his front lip from I think revolution and the rest with another kit (EDIT: factory sides and rear) and it came out nice.

You know, the OEM body kit does look really cool. I'm not excited about the rear spoiler but everything else is cool. Thanks!

That last victory red car looks awesome , we made our chin to flow perfectly with the oem side rockers just in case someone wanted to use the rest of the OEM body kit with a better front chin design.

Not yet , weve been selling our chins with the oem body kits lately. our tooling isnt finished on our rockers yet , along with our fenders , rear spoiler and grilles will be finally done this month. We have finished our rear diffuser , ss bowtie replacments and now we are starting on gauge pods , new front facias and another more retro hood option.

Revolution: do you sell your chins through the dealer? I like your hood and will probably order one over the next few weeks. Please send out pics of your upcoming products. Thanks!

excellent, very detailed post man. thanks for all the pictures. i actually never even thought of mix/matching the kits and paint them a different color then the body of the car.

REVOLUTION, you guys should put a thread with pictures of your upcoming products, prices and time frames for release.
