Where can I buy Japanese ground effects?

The Wings West body kits look okay, but are they really the only option here in the U.S.?

Take a look at all the Japanese ground effects on the links page, or visit the Japanese "Lagreat" sites for pics of car shows brimming with modded vans.

I espeacially like the understated streamlined look of WALD and GIALLA. Are there U.S. distributors? Can they be mail ordered overseas? I just don't see how there could be so many options in Japan and only one in the country where most of these vans are sold.

Anybody have any more U.S. sources for polyurethane?

Holy Odyssey!!! I'm drooling over those japanese parts & accessories
. I'm making a list now. My only problem is getting it here. Does anyone here live in Japan so we can exchange parts or something?

For one, I would like the red/clear lenses in the back rather than the red/amber lenses.
Man, can't stop the drooling
. Any suggestions?

I would love for V-spec Odyssey to add his input on how to order his kit. It is very nice without being to overdone. It also looks more agressive than the Wings West kit. How about it Randy (I hope that is the right name!), lets set up a group buy!!

nice to know W.W. is not our only option. They are nice, however those Jap. kits are radically sweet. Are they Urethane or fiberglass and which is better as far as paint, durability etc.? Re: Jap. kits, what are the costs esp. the one on Ora-lag's post above? I know, lots of ?? - but I'm only gonna do it once and it's $$$. thanks for any help.

I'm sure the lower areo stuff is urethane, but I just installed a VALUE SPORT rear wing just like Ora-Lags upper that was fiberglass and spent $350 thru www.kiyoshis.com . As far as cost goes, WWest is probably the least expensive at $7-800 for lower parts. Compared to $12-1500 for the imports. As of last year at this time there were 13 makers of aero kits in Japan

Good advice. That's the reaons I got the VSpec kit. Urethane. I've scraped the damn front sooooo many times, i can only image what it would look like if I got fiberglass. But the funny thing is..........of all the Japanese kits, only 2 are urethane. that means most Japanese are using fiberglass.
