Steve Payne. Emailed him a while back and got no answer. Not sure what's up with him or if he ever made any kits from the Hyper molds as was the plan. Captain Jaguar's Cathouse still sells the original 1st generation Lister body kit for $1600 (excluding the Lister rear spoiler which is another $330) here: Jaguar ground effects

It's similar to the Hyper Stage I kit, which bolts under your bumpers but does not cover the tops—the chrome blades are left exposed.

The picture I posted earlier of the red car had the Stage 2 Hyper Transformations kit, which replaces your front and rear bumpers completely with fiberglass units which I believe are filled with foam.

I shudder to think what shipping would be for a Hyper kit from the UK. Plus, if I was willing to pay for shipping from that side of the pond, I prefer the 1st generation Arden kit for the XJ-S.

Is that your car? If it is, man, that XJS looks beautiful and, somehow, it turned out kind of more modern than the mid 80's that it actually is. It's similar as it happened when I modified the front end on my '94. I think it has much to do with the elimination of the front chrome, although in my case it was only partial, but it still looks far more modern than with all that chrome at the headlights and hood. --- Great job!

No, not my car, but I'm hoping when all is said and done that mine will look just as good...

I went to the site for the lister body kit that was attached to a previous post post but the images of the ground effects look nothing like this photo. Their kit looks far to 80's. Strange wheel flair extensions below bumper and much more boxy shape.
Where did this kit come from?

See the text in posts 3 and 4. It's an Arden kit, a German company.
