I wanted to get your thoughts. I spent some time in the garage making cut outs of cardboard to the specs I wanted. It all looks better in person and would be great in acarbon and maybe fiberglass or aluminum painted black option.

The front would help protect the bumper from scraping it up, the sides add a slightly wider look and the rear diffuser would just look gorgeous.

The key would be extremely lightweight and super easy install.

Another shot of the sides. Disregard the box holding it up underneath

The rear of the 2015+ Nismo needs a lip/spat kit that extends the rear half of the sideskirts and rear bumper downward, since the stock body has that "rake" to it

thin lip all the way around doesn't do enough for me

I could easily make a a spat as well. I was working on those for a while and it was getting a bit cold in the garage

The attached pic is what i envisioned. The RCF has a similarly shaped rear bumper. Artisan Spirits has a lip kit with a rear bumper extension

Looks good so far. I do wish more VENDORS offered more for the 15+ Nismos. Look forward to seeing the finished product.

Thats why the Carbon Signal kit is kind of a disappointment to me

The side skirts are good but they don't extend all the way the length of the OEM side skirt, so it looks odd from some angles

They have a rear diffuser but no lip, so basically its invisible from the side (its black and is just a shadow)

Something that evened it out all around would be nice

I agree optionzero, I think I wil do the entire side skirt as well and will add the rear spat which I was thinking about anyway! I actually found one similar for a GTR I like a few months back so we were on the same page.

The other issue besides outrageous price for CS kit is it drops the front even lower...

When I did a diffuser on my sonata turbo daily driver it looked really good... with the nismo it would look gorgeous!!

Optionzero, do you like the rear fin idea like I have it?
The sides would go the whole distance, front would be the side splitters with an option for middle bar to join sort of like CS does

I have been talking to slickcarbon about some parts. He already has made the front carbon pieces seen below and a carbon nismo replica spoiler 2015+.

I am looking to get some parts made, obviously the more interest the more stuff we can get made. I'm looking to ditch all the red and cover with REAL carbon. He's in it appears so I'm waiting to hear price etc.
