ABS Side Diffusers (And other parts)


Recommended Posts

Seeing as how the first-gen W-bodies don't have the largest aftermarket, I'm going to have to make some of the items I want, and hopefully I can provide some to anyone else interested. First on my list is the exterior.

I've been looking into making some ABS side diffusers (And potentially other parts) for my Grand Prix, but after pricing out some ABS sheets from a local shop, I realized it's not the most economical approach to make just one set. Because I do want some though, I thought I'd see if anyone else would like a set, or other parts made out of ABS, so that I can use the extra material I'll end up with.

If you're wondering what side diffusers are, below are a couple of links to pictures. Essentially, they mount under the rocker panels (or side skirts, if equipped), and extend out from the sides of the car. By themselves, they're primarily for aesthetics, but can become very functional when teamed with an underbelly to seal off the bottom of the car (Guess which I'm going for). They can be with or without a small winglet at the back end.

The ABS I have my eye on is black, so paint shouldn't be needed unless you want another colour, but they can be painted/vinyled if desired. Pricing would depend on how big of an item you want, but a pair of diffusers (Basically the biggest parts that could be made) should cost around $75-120 CDN. I'm keeping a wide range because I don't know for sure yet. :cheers:

I am open to requests for other items as well, as long as the parts are a reasonable size, but think along the lines of side diffusers, winglets, block-off plates, intake boxes, and so on. If this goes ahead all of the 'manufacturing' will be carried out by yours truly, so I'll post updates for those interested.
