Kahn Design Parts

Yeah, yeah. I know. I've seen enough of a demand from customers that I saw it fit to become a dealer, so I can offer a pretty solid discount on their advertised prices.

I'll be placing a large order with them in the next couple of days if anyone wants to get in on it.

I'm not picking up anything to re-sell, just a lot of consumables for projects here.

The body kits certainly aren't for everyone, but they do have a pretty strong lineup of wheels that aren't so run-of-the-mill.

Will adding the wide panel from Kahn effect the value of the D90's?

Agreed. Permanent damage to the body panels so a restoration/removal would require all new skin, save the bonnet and tailgate. That doesn't change.

That poor Porsche! Vanilla Ice anyone??? Did they call it a Ferrosche or Porarri? Ugh. They did use 944 tail light lenses atleast!

Actually I don't think it is permanent. I think they are glued on.

Wow! Really? That's different. I figured they were a rivet/bolt-on job like the TF wide wheel arch eyebrows.

I know, but I still loved it! Was my first car! ;-) Not fast, big, but well balanced! 50/50 weight was great to learn on. Had an '86 and then a 954.

That changes things! Have at it! Anything that can be undone is good in my book. I don't think the body panels will have much appeal, unless you're going all in, and value only to a certain set, but if that's you, then go for it. To resell? No. It'll hurt the value unless your hiding panels that are blemished. Then it might slightly improve your value, but not over a straight truck imho.

from my understanding the body panels are installed with double sided tape

I had a long conversation with Oliver about the side panels, as he's recently outfit a truck with them; I have a set here which we'll be installing on a 90, so I wanted his take on the install before I made my purchase.

There's no provided fastening mechanisms provided with the kit, so you're kind of left to your own creativity when installing. The recommended means of attachment is with an automotive-grade adhesive which, admittedly, is some pretty permanent stuff. We'll be hanging them with both the adhesive and a series of rivnuts as a fail safe. I've only seen one truck in person with the kit attached and it was a pretty shoddy job, so I'm hoping to have a much better final product with the above method.

I do have to say that even though their designs and styling aren't for most of us, the quality of everything I have received from them has been very high.

It just looks pretty bolted on to me. Fastener heads could be fugazi, for effect. Could be a custom job, or overkill as Ash was planning, with both Tape/glue and fasteners.

Bolt heads don't go anywhere. All for effect.

Personally I wouldn't rivet it on. The glue should suffice and if it doesn't at least there aren't holes left behind.

Wow...isn't that a slantnose? Very rare. I guess the sad part is modifying a truly rare vehicle tastelessly?
