Hey guys this is pretty much what i posted on UKSWIFT, need to drum up interest:

Ok guys here goes i've been in contact with Doug aka supercharged on here and UK Swift on teamswift, and his friend has moulds for the mk2 ph2 splitter however they are 7 years old and new moulds need to be made....

Therefore if there is enough interest, we can get these beautiful splitters made up;

just need to know who's interested,

doug wrote me this:

Hey Prab,

Can easy sort them for you, only issue is that the moulds are a bit old now (1998). Got to drop mine off so he can make new ones, may take a month or two for him to get some made as he's quite busy at the mo.

I'm deffo spending the weekend working on the beast so will pull them then and give him a kick for you!

If you can get a few more people interested it would give him an insentive to pull his finger out may be worth doing a group buy !?

Doug


OK SO GUYS, IT'S IN OUR HANDS! Who's Interested!

btw more pics on dougs car:

Prab

PS So far i've got Definate interest from 1 guy, and possibly 2 guys taken by it!

Oh yeah at the moment i think this is probably gonna be a UK/Europe deal unless worldwide guys can cover extra postage, not sure yet....

I would be interested for sure! :D Those look great. I would just need to find some MK3 bumpers to attach them too! Well worth it though. To save shipping some of us near eachother could get them shipped overseas to 1 location and send them out from there.

I don't even have a mk3, but if the price was reasonable, I'd be in for one of the front 'splitters' regardless. I was looking for one of those the entire time I had my old gt's
under $200us shipped would be perfect.

They are the pieces that are at the bottom of the bumper extending it down closer to the ground. You can see them running across the front and up to the start of the wheel well where the bumper meets the fender on the front and rear bumper.

price shipped to the usa would be a deciding factor but both wagon and i are game for a set of front and rears each shipped in one crate.

that might be cheaper for all of us in this country, to ship a but load of them over in one box and distribute them from there.

it might also be cheaper to buy one, pull a mould and sell them 'under license' or something similar

Ok guy's got an update, they can be purchased individually now or still as a group buy but not for a while, they are a bit more ££ then i thought they would be, heres what doug wrote to me:

Prab

Personal preference would be the ph2/mk3, then again free is very good.

Will deffo take a couple of months before they are ready he's really busy. Is flat out with his work and he's got to finish a couple of boosted swifts (works on them as a hobby).

Your looking at 200 for a pair and 115 each + postage, give me a buzz to discuss sometime

Check out some off his work: http://www.teamswift.net/album_personal ... er_id=3793

White car is his Turbo, (black one with the lips got wrecked years ago)

....
