We post “new models” on our web site as soon as they are available to be shipped. If it’s not on our web site, it’s generally not available…not yet anyway.

If you are in business in the “Restyling/Customizing Industry” and you have a legitimate business license and tax ID number from your state, please contact RAZZI® by AAC by e-mail or phone to receive our “Restyler Information Package”.
III. Tell me the specifics about RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Packages-
A. What paint colors do the RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Packages come in?
RAZZI® by AAC does offer painted RAZZIÒ Ground Effects Packages in OEM colors and codes. Please call or e-mail RAZZI® by AAC for more information about purchasing pre-painted RAZZI® products. On vehicles 3 – 5 years old and older, RAZZI® by AAC suggests that the factory paint on your car/truck be “buffed out” to attain a better color match between your newly painted Ground Effects kit and your older vehicle’s paint.
B. What are the RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Packages made out of?
All RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects parts are manufactured using primer gray colored AERO-FLEXÒ, RAZZI® by AAC’s own ABS composite plastic material.
C. ABS. What is ABS?
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, or ABS, is a blend of chemicals that make the special RAZZI® by AAC kind of plastic. There are many different “grades” of ABS type plastic. RAZZI® by AAC uses the very best grades that are specially blended together to make AERO-FLEX®, the best material that is available for the manufacture of Ground Effect type products.
D. Why does RAZZIÒ by AAC use ABS for their Ground Effects Packages?
The RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects Packages are not soft and rubbery like some Ground Effects Packages (which can be hard to paint and difficult to install). The ABS packages are more rigid like fiberglass but do not crack like fiberglass parts will. Many years ago, RAZZI® and Monsanto combined technologies to develop the very best material for manufacturing ground effect type products and the formula for AERO-FLEX® was the result. Having been upgraded three times since it’s beginning, the RAZZI® AERO-FLEX® material still remains the best material for ground effects today. It is very, very similar in composition to the “high-tech” plastics being used today on some vehicles like the Saturns. AERO-FLEX® is NOT a “urethane” material and it is NOT a “fiberglass” material.
E. How many pieces are in a RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Package?
A typical RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects Package for a car will have four (4) pieces – one (1) Front Air Dam, two (2) Side Skirts, and one (1) Rear Air Dam. Some packages will include additional parts, such as Door Panels.
A typical RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects Package for a truck will have seven (7) pieces – one (1) Front Air Dam, two (2) Cab Skirts, two (2) Bed Skirts, and two (2) Rear Skirts. Some truck packages will have an optional Rear Roll Pan available.
If a Rear Roll Pan is to be installed, the original rear bumper on the truck must be removed. RAZZI® by AAC always suggest that you check your state laws before removing your rear bumper; some states have laws that make rear bumper removal illegal!
F. How much will a RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Package lower my vehicle?
RAZZI® by AAC develops the “body restyling packages” to enhance the vehicle designs. The RAZZI® by AAC design gives an “optical illusion” that the restyled car has been lowered. Actually, most RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects kits have one (1) inch, or less, of change in ground clearance.
G. Are RAZZIÒ by AAC Front and Rear Air Dams “Bumper Replacements”?
No, they are not. RAZZI® by AAC Front and Rear Air Dams attach to the existing stock-factory bumper. When installing a
RAZZI® by AAC part, you would never remove the stock-factory front or rear bumper. With the presence of air bag “sensors”
and with all the “crash testing” and other safety related issues, RAZZI® by AAC does not recommend removing any stock-
factory bumper and replacing it with another manufacturer’s ground effect part.
H. Can RAZZIÒ by AAC make a “one-of-a-kind” custom ground effects kit just for my car?
Not really. To make our parts using our AERO-FLEX® plastic, we have to make the “tooling” that will enable us to produce the
parts on our machinery. This “tooling” costs thousands and thousands of dollars. We couldn’t possibly make a ground effects kit
and sell only one (unless of course, we charged the customer $30,000 for it). If we made our parts out of inexpensive fiberglass
using very inexpensive “tooling” (like some of our competitors), we could probably do it. How good the final parts would fit and
what quality they would be is another question.
IV. Tell me about installing a RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Package-
A. How will the RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Packages mount to my car or truck?
All RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects Packages come with mounting hardware and instructions. A typical mounting hardware package includes all necessary screws and a tube of urethane adhesive. Most packages include double-sided tape which is used to hold the parts on the vehicle while the urethane adhesive cures. We include a list of several “quick setting adhesives” in our installation (“tips”) instructions that comes with the kit. These adhesives can make the installation easier and can be purchased at your local paint and body shop supply house.
B. Can I install a RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Package myself?
Yes, but RAZZI® by AAC suggests that two (2) people work together to install a Ground Effects package.
C. Why does it take two (2) people to install a RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Package?
All Front and Rear Air Dams for RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects Packages are designed to fit from wheel well to wheel well. This design creates very “large” pieces and it is designed into all RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects Packages to prevent unsightly seams or joints as well as providing excellent fit and design continuity. These large pieces are difficult for 1 person to handle, especially after they have been painted. You wouldn’t want to scratch them while you’re installing them, so the extra hands to hold them are always helpful.
D. What tools will I need to install a RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Package?
RAZZI® by AAC would suggest that, at the minimum, you have the following tools available:
Box cutter / Razor knife: Trim the plastic parts if any trimming is needed.
Cordless power drill: Drill screw holes.
Full screwdriver set: put in screws.
Full drill bit set: Drill screw holes.
“Caulk gun”: To apply the urethane adhesive that comes with the kit.
Sandpaper: To sand the parts if necessary during the “fitting” process.
E. How hard is it to install a RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects package?
It’s not “hard” to install a RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects package since the parts will fit very well. Occasionally a part may have to be “slightly” sanded by hand to get a perfect fit because of slight variations from vehicle to vehicle, but in most cases no sanding will be needed. Most routine Installers of Ground Effects say that RAZZI® by AAC parts fit “ the best of all” and “installing them is easy”. When you get the RAZZI® by AAC kit, before you take it to a body shop to get it painted, always “pre-fit” the parts on your car. You will then see how well the parts fit and how easy they will be to install.
F. How long will it take to install a RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Package?
For someone who has never installed a ground effect package before (like most people), a typical RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects Package for a car, should take between two (2) and three (3) hours to install. A RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects Package for a truck, should take between five (5) and six (6) hours to install because the truck will have more parts. If you have experience installing ground effect type products, two people should be able to install the typical RAZZI® by AAC package for a car in about an hour and a truck in under two hours.
G. Is there anything else I need to know before installing a RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects Package?
Yes, RAZZI® by AAC always strongly suggest that exhaust turndowns or exhaust extensions are used with all RAZZI® by AAC Rear Air Dams. You must re-direct, or deflect, the heat coming out of the tail pipe away from all RAZZI® by AAC parts.
H. Can I get my RAZZIÒ by AAC Ground Effects package professionally installed?
Yes. Most of our RAZZI® by AAC Distributors are also authorized RAZZI® by AAC installation centers. Any authorized RAZZI® by AAC installation center can paint and install your RAZZI® by AAC Ground Effects package. To get the name of the installation center nearest you, call or e-mail RAZZI® by AAC and tell us where you live (city/state). If you live in a smaller town or suburb, tell us the name of the larger city near you.

Shipments to a residential address will ” will have extra charges of approximately $50.00 (as charged by the LTL Common Carrier).
