no it isnt. hence why it would be easier to properly mill one out of a strong material (like billet maybe??) in a cnc mill. but that would be really expensive. in fact i think those are custom knuckles on the fr200.

I like the red one the best too. Like a said, If they didn't bring the hood down, left an upper grill in, put more of a 99 WRC wing on it, left the hatch tails and smoothed out the side skirts, these car would look amazing. I think APC owns the red and silver ones. Wonder where the yellow one is.

Yeah the wing is the biggest part the needs to go. The other things are just subtle changes that I think would make them look even better. The sedan tail look good in them to but I just prefer the hatch tails.

I don't think they are one offs. I think they are a Cougar/Contour knuckle that was modified. If you look you can see where there was some welding done to them right below the upper ball joint seat. Why weld anything if they are custom machined.
