I would never order it I don't like the look. The car looks much better without it. That kit makes it look too much like a ricer.

Default Re: Gravana body kit

I am in the process of adding the Gravana lambo door kit, hood, ground effects, rear spoiler and rear valance. Its in the shop and coming along real nice. After a year keeping the SKY Redline stock I have since added the GM turbo UPG, GM cat back high perf duali exhaust and GM cold air intake and a custom windscreen. The GM turbo UPG was $500 and adds about 40hp but more importantly does a better "timing" job with the new TTap relays. The GM cold air intake allows the engine to breath more efficiently and was $300. The GM cat-back exhausts add more horse pwr and are a more efficient way to exhaust the engine. Gives the car a nice purr at low rpms and roars to life in 3rd gear! Not too loud in the driver seat.

I wanted the lambo doors as a way to get in and out of my garage without dinging the doors constantly, the Gravana fiber glass hood adds real RAM air intake and was $700. The rear valance for $300 is carbon fiber but had to bew modified for the dualie exhaust. I wasn't too pleased with that. The Gravana rear spoiler at $300 is larger than the stock version and looks really really nice. The Gravana body kit includes the ground effects and gives the car a nice stylish finish for the side view.

I am having the car completely painted over, same color, Onyx but with a mucho better finish. The stock finish in less than two years began to show more wear and tear (swirls, scratches and acid rain). This new finish will be much better.

All in all I did all this to my SKY to make it unique and unlike any SKY currently on the road. I have kept all of the stock parts and are in storage in case I ever need them again. I will post before and after pics. So far so good!

If I even had a Sky I would never install a body kit on it. Or any car for that matter. It's not the look I don't like. I mean seriously. Blow a lot of cash on something that's likely to get scraped up? No thanks.

Body kit for a SKY/Solstice? No thanks sounds like something that needs to be on a nice slow car like an Astra so it doesn't blow off in the wind.
