I've never understood 'contact us for pricing.' Maybe on some 8 figure Ferrari, but on a car like this? I have no idea if it's $75k or $175k, so why do we need to waste each other's time with that enquiry?

Agreed Matt. Not sure why anyone would try to hide the oil lines in an RSR tribute. Just makes the cars look "off" even at a distance with the lower rocker. Then again, those tail pipes aren't exactly the best size either.

I believe Singer also hides the oil lines+ AC lines. The rear bumper looks off, but the side skirts look fine imo.

Way off the mark for me. Deeper bumpers would have helped but would still only be a band aid for those sills!

I've seen all 3 in person at Sloan, I agree that the side sills look a little odd, but I think that can easily be remedied by painting/wrapping the lower part black. This would give the illusion of a higher rocker similar to what singer does. Overalll, they're not a bad looking car in person, the enine bay treatment is a little bit of a let down considering all the fine details though. For the right price I think it could make someone very happy.

I ca only imagine the asking price doesn't justify the look. I agree with everyone else that the rockets just look off. The rest of the car(s) is really nice looking, other than the engine bay... The red is just odd

The most annoying thing about the Sloan ad in Panorama magazine is the no price thing. Super annoying.

Figured someone may know the shop that did them. Rear end is just to high and the rockers too low.... But looks like some money was dumped into them.

I understand the desire to cover the oil lines for some people. So thats not it by itself. Its the dip toward the ground in front of the rear wheel arch that really exaggerates the side skirt. And the mis-match of the bumper covers to the side skirt. Either the ends are too high, or the skirts are too low.

A little lower and black sideskirts might make it work.

I guess I didn't word my post very well. Not wanting to see the oil lines, a-la Singer is understandable IF you relocate them like Singer does.

What I don't like and don't understand, is leaving them where they are, but using a lower sill to cover them in an RSR longhood project. It throws the entire profile of the car off and ruins the look, IMO.

EDIT: I would also be upset if my odometer said 726 miles, but my AC compressor front and center in the engine bay looks like it has seen 100x that. You would think they could at least media blast that and the associated lines/hardware for you if they're going to sell it as a "new" car.
