    Wow. I guess I can't ask for nicer comments than that.

    Thank you, Rick, for the opportunity to transform your car, I enjoyed it.

    Now you can see why Viper is bring back the YELLOW for 09. Beautiful job. Lowering the car and the wheels also add to this beauty. Is the front lower then the back? How far did you lower the car and how did you do it?

    Thanks for the info.

    The car was lowered with moton adjustable suspension that Rick already had on the car. We use 3/4" lowering spring caps as a Street Serpent standard.

    It may have already been addressed, but can just the rear section be fitted to the converts?

    Thanks Austin. I didn't see any pricing on just the rear section, anybody know for sure the pricing on just the two rear quarters and trunk lid is?

    Expect to spend around 8k with exchange of old panels. That's sending your car in, turn-key ready to go. For rear only.

    A different version of the same question, will that truunk top work with standard width coupe quarters to accomplish the same, without widening the car?

    Very interested. Any pics of a rear converted vert available? I have an 08 hood on my 04, is it reusable on the total conversion should I go full?

    im curious if the front end conversion can be done, while leaving the stock vert rear alone?? or does that end up looking off, do to the front being wider than the rear??

    Hey guys, I'll chime in here for a sec.

    No partial section of the kit can be done, it's all or none. The parts simply will not fit. However it IS POSSIBLE to do the rear only, the parts to do only these conversions are not available for sale. Only a couple people were able to do it in the past but that will not longer be the case.

    Since this mod is wider than the standard vert body, does anyone make the standard sized rear quarters that will give the vert a coupe tail? I'm a huge fan of the late 70's and early 80's sports cars. They all have the "Duck Tail" spoiler much like the coupes. If someone made just the spoiler addition for the verts that would be perfect.
    The one on the Viper just isn't as pronounced as the coupe. I'm sure it fine for the aerodynamics of the vert but I either want the coupe spoiler or the APR GT-500.
    I cant seem to load a pic with the example, even in PDF format.:dunno:

    As I just stated above, yes it has been done before, but I will not be selling the parts for it to be done again. I will be selling Street Serpents ONLY. Unless someone else designs and makes the parts to do it, you cannot pick your favorite part, (rear end, front end, what ever) and only do that. The customers that invested in a unique all new body design deserve the benefit of that exclusive style.
