shop

I have a show/street car and I have had my work done by one the best shops around Va and Md, Brauning Motorsports! It is still in the process of being finished! I have owned my car for several years and checked out several shops because there wasnt anyone i trusted in Va to touch my ride but found them they are $%@#ing awesome! If you go through me I can talk to MARK and MR Brauning and probally get you a good price!:thumbsup:

replica bumper

Only thing i can suggest is research the web for the bumper! I have found parts for my car that people didnt even know existed by hours of research on the web! Ebay is a good place, search for carlson bumpers etc, There are always guys on there selling there replica kits they make from originals you just need to make sure it is a good replica with decent fitment.:thumbsup:

I didnt know there were so many locals. You guys should check out absolutelydriven.com It is the local euro forum with meets/events.

I have a replica carlsson rs bumper at home. But I must warn you, replicas never fit well. I cut my AMG bumper in half and molded it to the stock amg bumper

Thanks!!! I have read about your ride, I cant wait to see the finished product! What does the hood you are getting look like? Is it cf? I've been looking for a c/f vented hood that fits well FOREVER! Let me know when it's done, I wanna check it out.

Yes, you can do what I did lol. It fits perfectly. You know where the molding is on the AMG bumper? Well they cut the bumper horizontally at that molding all the way across. Then cut the Carlsson rep at the same point. Then they mold it together and you get a perfect fitting bumper. Tada!

Hood

I actually sent my hood to Vegas so they could use it as a plug for a mold and then did the custom vent and everything i designed and asked! The fitment is
unf#%$&ing believable I was so impressed when i got it,it looks like it was made from the factory, just out of fiberglass.It has ribs underneath and everything a perfect fit no BS! The whole thing cost me 4 grand though counting shipping my original hood and custom work! They do specialize in custom carbon fiber projects and they are good man!:thumbsup:
