Might talk to Lee from Northwest Composites. He has an operation going and he might be able to produce if you make molds.

I would be in for a set depending on the price. If the rear lip could be made as well that would be pretty kick ass and I don't see why sedan owners couldn't just shorten the sides of the rear lip to make it fit.

i would basically (if i could) make a mold of the wagon lip, get it operational, and then trim the orig to fit my car, and make a sedan mold... but i need to see... may have to look into this. I'm used to be an injection mold maker so it's gonna be a bit different >.>

It's up to you, but it would be cool to get a good mold of them and to find a shop that would be willing to make them to sell to us folks in the US.

The thing I've seen in the past from group buys and other type of things is that when an individual member tries to sell or get folks together it can be a bit difficult, especially for continued production. So in your case, if you can make a mold and turn it over to a shop that would be willing to make these either in a limited run or on an as-needed basis, that removes some of the burden from you on an on-going basis.

That most likely depends on what kind of deal you strike up with the shop. As mentioned earlier, there are vendors on this forum that are working on making parts as we speak. If you're going to sell it for 350 or whatever, isn't there a possibility you could sell it to a shop for 350 and have the best of both worlds? I don't know what it takes to make the molds, but is it possible you could get the molds made and then sell the parts? Or maybe even make the mold, sell the parts then sell the molds? Granted, letting a shop make the mold might provide a higher level of accuracy and quality (I'm not calling into question your ability, apologies if it sounds that way). Having to manufacture all that yourself if you're not setup for it sounds horrifying.

I admit, it would be a stone cold bitch to do... And anyone know of a cf or fiberglass shop in the NE? Pref in a 2 1/2 hr radius from boston?

I have a set of the rear sedan lips, in case someone wanted to do a whole set. ( I could offer them for the mold)

you can trim the ends off the gd impreza front lip and it will fit with some ideal screw placement
I have a set of 96-99 LGT side skirts and a sedan rear lip I'm going to install in the spring
I'll post up pics when its done

Honestly I think they should at least start making replica body panels for first gens like the turbo hoods and SS front bumpers and glass headlamps too and all the stuff people actively look for. I just recently got an SS front bumper for my 90 wagon from my buddy who works at pacific import auto in parkland idk if any of you know jake15 on nasioc but he's red sedan with full sti swap.
And on another random note I got my wheel bearing fixed :)

I'd buy a set, even though I already have a set of gen 3 skirts I was going to shorten to fit.
