Default C6 rear widebody conversion

Looking to maybe go his route, anyone know of a shop in or around Ottawa that can pull this off?

I'm looking for a one stop shop for the rear panel install, paint, rims, tires and if I really go the route I want I'm thinking forced induction. My car is a 2008 LS3 with a Vararam intake, headers, catback and tune.

Thanks

Don't know any shops in your area, though I'm sure there has to be one.

As for the rear wide body, it's pretty easy, my Dad and I did mine in the garage. There's instructions online and RPI sells them pre-painted, their paint match is supposed to be good, they guarantee it on most colors.

Hope that helps at least a bit.
