Coupe Conversion advice

Iím debating doing the coupe conversion. Steve (flame suit on) now has all this in carbon. I owned Flatouts car

It was Steveís products but he said there were some fitment issues but ended up looking amazing.

So if I do purchase the parts. What paint scheme or what carbon should remain exposed?? I have a Gen3 with OEM gen4 hood. Just paint it all red?? Go with the ACR scheme with exposed carbon like Flatout??

My car.

Too bad Dodge didn't do that to the Viper. Looks good.

They haven't died, they are just old and don't work on their cars anymore. Most of these people have owned their cars forever...Look how long they have been members. A majority of the ones that talked Viper, have been banned.

Now, they just talk politics and which celeb died.

I would somehow incorporate the carbon, but in a subtle way. Maybe use it in an ACR driver stripe. Only problem is how to tie that into the front that isnít carbon. You could always just leave the top as carbon and paint the rest. Any plans to add aero?

Definitely need to find a way to show the carbon, that weave pattern is just too unique.

Here's some advice - don't give that asshole a cent unless it's after you've gotten the parts. Do not take his word on anything.

Tint the clear coat with a color and just spray it so the carbon shows through.

If only that widebody version had of been somehow introduced/combined into the Gen 5 release !


Wider wheel haunches often make cars look more athletic and muscular, which is what the viper was all about.

This existed as far as a mock up. There were pics of what you are wanting on Vipairs' site, with it done on a red car. It was his roof and hatch with the factory glass. I just did bunch of googling and could not find an image. I don't know if it ever made it into production, but that never really stopped Steve from taking peoples money anyway. You could post on every viper site about it and watch ebay as some of his stuff still pops up there, but again, I don't know if a single kit was ever made beyond the prototype.
