Just got sponspored, Need to find wide body kit.

I just got a $12,000 sponsorship for my 1995 Talon but I need help finding a wide body kit for it. I found one at powertoyz.com but I was just wondering if anyone knew of where I could find other kits. Or if anyone has any ideas of what I should do that would be great. I'm thinking about painting my car white, with a Evo Carbon fiber hood and gunmetal wheels. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Squid Skins makes carbon fiber bumpers, doors and fenders for the 2Gs If your going for that look.

check out the kaminari kit
http://www.kaminari.com/products/95EclipseWB.htm
their yellow spyder is one of my favorites!
the even make one specific to the 95/6 eclipse so you can keep the headlights (like the yellow spyder).

question:
of the $12,000 you got for the car... do you HAVE to use it on a widebody kit?

if they require you to take that route, i guess its a different story...but id like to go to a show one day and see a DSM that can perform not just sit there with some 12pc widebody kit and suupermadtyte lite glow all over

NO I can do whatever I want to the car. I just think the wide body kit would look good. I plan on doing engine mods to so it will perform to. But any ideas would be great.
Thanks

search i know ive seen one. looks ugly IMO tho, 12k could be better invested i think. 97-98 conversion, new paint, sick motor, tranny build, just a clean setup, could always go bling in engine/interior, volk rims or somethin

why do i think your getting scammed?

i mean maybe your not, but it seems like you have a pretty stock car and someone is just going to give u 12000g's?

i dont know about anyone else, but that sounds REAL shadey.

I've thought about doing the 97-98 upgrade with a stroker motor and shepracing tranny. I have talked to the company that is sponsoring me and they were looking for a car that is stock and to build up for show with products they can get which is about anything that I want. How can you guys say I'm getting scammed when you don't even know what your talking about.

most the time when cars get sponsored, they are far from stock, and to shop/company gives them money for travel and entry expenses for car shows. In return, you advertise their product/shop with stickers and such... either way.. your lucky for the sweet deal

I know a guy that got sponsered and it was a stock civic hatchback. He got all bling crap like a body kit and shiney engine components.

FYI - make sure you have it in writing that the car and items remain YOUR property... sounds silly but they ive you 12K, you work the car together then they sue you and take your ride, could be a free labor, free stock deal for them.. for that kind of money its worth talking to a lawyer for 500 bucks.. Other than that its a sweet deal

Thats a good idea and probably well worth the money. It would suck to get done with getting it ready for show and then they just take it away from me. I have to get it ready for either show or race but they would rather have do both but I don't know how I could do that with only $12k, would anyone have any ideas on what I could do? I'm thinking now about just going with a 97-98 conversion with some nice wheels and spend the rest on the motor and transmission and drivetrain but any ideas would be great.
Thanks

spend 5K on a built motor, 1K on exhaust, 1500 on turbo, 1200 on fromt mount, 2K on supporting mods. that leaves you with 2K for suspension and dressing it up, not much really.. this is assuming you do all the labor
