Assuming that is a V8 diffuser I'd be willing to buy it.

Correct or if someone has a V6 they would just need to run the V8 R exhaust.

My only concern would be shipping!

You can likely just take it to UPS and they'll wrap it for shipment for you, obviously I'll pay for that or I have folks in Orange County you could leave it with (I'll be there on the 17th of next month) and I can do that myself.

That could work. I'll keep you as first in line for the rear diffuser.

Just going to put up a For Sale thread for the wing and the exhaust and once those are spoken for I should have my mind made up to move forward!

Will do! (you will be 1st in line)

Realistically, I'm getting too close to Monterey Car Week (which is only 5 weeks away) to start on this project so I am just going to hold off until we get the car back from that weekend! This gives me some time to line up a buyer for the wing and exhaust.

For those of you with a V6, the exhaust and diffuser together would be an easy and very welcomed modification (sound).

Do you have the P7 surround as well?

Agreed!

Whoops, I meant to say Project 7 grill AND surround. It will also come wrapped black, ceramic coated and with the black/chrome grill emblem.

Sorry for the hijack of your thread ................

That said, Paul was too young and went out via the carelessness of another.
AMEN!!

Although I believe a principle cause was determined as very old tyres with degradation of rubber despite their low mileage.

So tragedy aside, probably caused by negligent maintenance rather than excess speed.
.
Car was owned by one race car driver (GR) and driven by another (RR) with the tires never being changed. So, if they had not been driving on 'glass' they most likely would be here today. Horrible tragedy, but I believe God in His mercy took the souls before the physical bodies knew what happened. I hope Paul will be remembered for the amazing charity work he did.

My car is primarily being used for work events, product promoting and track days now anyways (now that I have another car to DD). We were planning to do some type of crazy wrap livery in the near future as well as a few partner collaborations so I figured now would be the time.

Parts would include:
- GT3 Challenge swan neck wing
- GT3 Challenge rear diffuser
- GT3 Challenge titanium exhaust
- Carbon Fiber side sill extensions
- Carbon Fiber front lip and canards
- Lightweight 18" or 19" wheels with meaty tires
- Upgraded brakes
- Sabelt or Racetech fixed seats

This would mean that my current GT Carbon diffuser, GT Carbon wing and R exhaust would be for sale.

Thoughts?
