Watch This C8 Corvette Get a Pandem Rocket Bunny Body Kit

Giving the C8 JDM flair is a pretty intensive procedure.

Fascinating Watch

Japanese body kit maker Pandem made quite a few waves when it created a JDM-style body kit for the C8 Corvette a few years ago, which isn’t a huge surprise. After all, applying the tuner treatment to America’s sports car seems like a strange idea on the surface, and for many, it goes a bit too far. However, even if you aren’t into that sort of thing, this video from Fit Automotive documenting the installation of a Pandem Rocket Bunny kit onto a C8 is pretty fascinating to watch.

Labor Intensive

In this video, we get to see the entire installation in a neatly packaged 8-minute clip, even thought the actual process obviously took a lot longer than that to complete. There’s quite a bit of cutting, sanding, measuring, and taping involved, but all of that is necessary to ensure a perfect fit.

Real Cutting

The job is being completed for the C8’s owner – Swan River Racing – at Fit Automotive in Villas, Florida, and begins with test fitting all of the various bits and pieces before the cutting begins. And we do mean cutting, as the folks at Fit break out the saw and chop up the Corvette’s stock fenders prior to the actual installation.

Cutting Away

That’s enough to make some cringe, but such is the cost of wanting to stand out from the crowd, which this kit obviously accomplishes better than most. Regardless, quite a few pieces around the fenders, side skirts, and rear end go under the knife to facilitate this particular upgrade.

Total Transformation

This is obviously no bolt-on affair, as a ton of labor and care goes into installing the Pandem Rocket Bunny kit, as we can certainly see in this short clip. Once all the surgery is completed, the individual pieces can be fitted to the car, which totally transforms the look.

Rolling Footage

With a set of gold wheels serving as the proverbial finishing touch, this wild, wide body C8 hits the road looking like nothing else on it. A good portion of the video is dedicated to showing off the custom build driving down the road, turning every single head it crosses along the way.

House Divided

It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this wildly modified C8 is certainly unique, and we can appreciate that, at least. But those thinking about installing the Rocket Bunny kit on their own car will likely need to set some realistic expectations up front because this particular job isn’t some sort of amateur affair.
