I'm looking for more info on this body kit. Picking it up from a local member and it's just missing the right front fender piece and front bumper. I can't find a picture of what the front looks like. Any help is greatly appreciated! The only pic I can attach is the one I've found online that is closest to mine so far. I'll try to figure out how to get mine loaded up later on.

Btw new on the forum! Got 3 birds so far. 2 88's and an 84.

I doubt that that kit, or any other, is being produced currently.
If anyone knows of a current producer, please provide details as others may also be interested.

Well I'm getting what I think is parts of this body kit. I'm wondering what the front looks like so I can keep an eye out for it in the future.

What you're talking about were called "ground effects" in the 1990s, after our vehicles were produced, as an aftermarket customization add-on feature.

I knew of several cars in the Tucson, AZ area (where I lived then) that had that addition. The problem seemed to be that road hazards such as speed bumps, curbs, potholes, etc. eventually played havoc with the soft plastic (exacty the same as the material found in our existing front and rear bumpers), and the cars either began looking ragged and beat up, and/or the owners removed them.

Have you done a Google search?

Yes and the 87-88 TC kit was even better looking.

Original Brochures of 2 styles of ground effects for the 87-88 TCs.

I sent these to you already, but thought this would a good one to share with all.
