GTOG8TA.com's 04-06 GTO SAP Grilles

Coming soon...made from fiberglass, like the originals. No warping here.

We still are mocking up the GTO grille emblem.

If you guys get a good amount of them ready, you could make a KILLING.

People get tired of waiting for them, when purchasing from West Coast Speed.

We'll have them in stock and ready to ship same day. No more waiting 3-4 months.

We are planning on just reproducing an emblem to just place over the grille. You can take it off if you do not like it.

We'll probably just do them in the primer gray and black colors for ease.

As soon as I get a couple hours, I'll install it. Um... it's a little bit chilly here!

Got the exhaust installed today but ran out of time to adjust the tips and get a video. I'll get that done soon. Sounds GREAT!

Awesome! Glad to hear. I think that setup is one of the best I've heard.

I had a thought on another part that needs to be reproduced. The rear bumper valance on 2005-2006 GTOs. The part under the rear bumper that says GTO and has the exhaust cutouts. I've seen where people are having trouble finding these and they're really expensive. They are being stolen off of cars now.

Yes the diffuser I think it's called. $400 shipped from Aussie-land.

Got any leads to get us a nice used one? This will be tough for us and a lot of money needs to go up front for these, but yes. It may be the most sought after part for a reasonable price.

I voted primer grey. keep the initial cost down
for the buyer. we can do what we want with
the color after the fact.

i'll buy a set as soon as they are released.

also, I say keep the gto emblem off. it just
clutters the clean look up.

Yea looks like we are going to do that. We'll provide an emblem with the set and if you want to put it on great. If not, hang it on your wall

Nothing of substantial value. We test fitted our samples and they did not fit like we wanted them to. We'll keep working to try and get them out for the Spring.

It's been awhile since I updated the thread here.

We just got our new prototypes in and they look good!
The housings fit pretty good. Much better than our firsts.

We just need to finalize how we are going to attach the mesh to the housings.

Bottom line is.... we are getting close to pre-orders

SAPs still aren't my bag, but those do look really nice. Keep up the good work.
