Default Looking for body kit picture

Hi guys. I am looking for a picture of WISE Sports body kit for the first gen Celsior. From what I remember this was the coolest looking kit for that car back in the day but I have misplaced the picture I had. Any help would be appreciated.

Trust me, I have tried. This is not the kit BTW. The small picture might be the one, can't tell.

Let me rephrase that. The bigger picture is not the version of the WISE Sports bumper I am looking for. It does not have the openings for the round fog lights.

Yes, I remember a specific picture I fell in love with and managed to source the kit (took me couple of years to find). The picture is gone now together with the extensive gallery I had on my web site. I was hoping to find it again.

nice, but black hides the vents and holes so the look is subtle. it will look very different on a lighter color!

Absolutely agree. My LS also had an enormous intercooler so this bumper was the perfection

Do you have any intention of re-hosting your site? There are other hosts, such as GitHub Pages, where it can be published for free. I found your pages on the Wayback Archive, and there was some very cool information.

I'm not a big fan of body kits, but it is cool to see the many different variations that were available. You also had very good diagrams for the audio system, which are great for diagnostic purposes.

It still exists, I am just done with cars and moved on to bikes. No point on keeping the site updated or giving it it's own address:

Thanks Pure. I have sold that beast to a buddy. Raced it a while, blew the transmission couple of times and was done with it. That LS did produce some puzzled looks from the drivers of sports cars, though. Priceless
