Kenstyle is in the process of making a kit for the 300c. Only problem is the kit is $2800. I'm working very closely with a good friend of mine who specializes in replicating the kit from the original. I will keep things updated on the progress.... Not sure on what the cost will be but it will be less than the original!!!

What it looks like...

I absolutly love that kit and I think its even better that they are going to manufacture it! I dont think it looks anything like that shitty JT Evo kit, as that is nothing but stick on garbage. This kits looks much more refined, and fits the origional lines of the car rather well.
Perhaps since you are in cahoots with the guy in charge of this, us oh-so-critical consumers can offer some styling tips, although everyones opinion when it comes to bodykits it different. Personally, I think the drastic indentations on the rear facia closest to the wheel wells are a bit over accentuated.
The front is perfect imo, EXCEPT that 'stock' looking plastic around the lower fog light assemblies. I think having custom inserts availble (mesh, verticle/horizontal billet) would be much more appealing to the consumer.
What I like about the kit is that its understated, but still noticable enough that there is an aftermarket kit on the car.
Since GRIP debuted their kit, that might start to catch on with a few but I think if your buddy can replicate this, in a quality way (perhaps with some 'tweaks' to set it aside from the Kenstyle kit) I perdict it to be very promising.

By the way, do you know what the kit will be made out of? Plexiglass, urethane?!? What?

It will actually start out fiberglass, but afterwards it can move to colored kevlar and even to carbon fiber. The potential for urethane is there it's just the cost is much higher to make it...

The rear add on needs to be a whole rear bumper, just like the front. I think it looks weird having a full one piece front bumper, and then an add on for the rear.

I agree with what smoove7410 pointed out.

actually $2800.00 is about right for a quality body kit. So how are you going to copy it? Based off of pictures? so do you guaranatee fitment with full refunds including shipping for bad fitment?

Let me ask you this do you think ken style offers any kind of guarantee like this??? Most companies offer a good fitment but could be some modifying needed for a perfect fitment. Yeah it will be fiberglass first then it will move to urethane and possibly even carbon fiber if there is any kind of demand for it...

yes they will. Of course you will need minor finishing, and shaving for ANY body kit. However it's nowhere near the amount that usually goes into making a copy kit fit. Usually the Japanese use high grade FRP and comes with the usual excellent Japanese customer service for ANY issues. I do know this from first hand experience.

We're working on setting up the U.S. office at the moment. I'm 99.99% sure we will have warranties on these products. I should also let you know that we have several U.S. patents already and are working on more. If you're planning on making countefeit copies of our products, you're in for a fight. I don't think it's particularly smart for to post your intentions like this on a public message board. Using our trademarked brand and copyrighted images to advertise your intended counterfeit isn't too bright either. I have already saved this post and forwarded it to the Japanese office.

As far as product quality goes, most of our kits are constructed with handlaid fiberglass. This is not that cheap brittle junk you see so many civic owner pasting on their cars. It's strong, durable, and somewhat flexible. Many Kenstyle products are offered as dealer installed options on cars in Japan. Quality and durability is the same, if not better than OEM parts.

I agree with kenstyleusa it wasnt too smart of you kermit to publicly come out and say you were going to copy their bodykit on a public forum. Kenstyle how much did you get those rims for in Japan? those wheels are nice.
