Easy, make friends with a shop that is going and borrow some floor space.

Technosquare goes every year. I'm sure you'll have to put his banner on your car though.

Otherwise it's $500-1k If I remember right.
Not cheap by far.

Way more than $500-1K ... try $2917.50 for a 10'x15' booth which may be just enough to squeeze your car into. If you need 10'x20' it's $3890 ... which is probably more like what you'd need for one car and actually be able to stand or sit near it.

Oh, and there's a $350 membership fee as well unless you want to pay the premium for non-members (goes to $3427.50 and $4570 respectively).

Can you say OUCH? And that's why you won't see me there this year.

how about for a spot on the side-walk like they did last year just before entering the complex. That should be cheaper if not free.

I dunno, they only have info about booths on their website, but I bet if they control the sidewalk it's not free.

Default SEMA show.

Little late to get into SEMA right now. Most of the cars in booths are set in stone already. I know your motor is ridiculous but the outside is a little plain. SEMA is best of the best. You can purchase spots outside the convention center as a feature car but SEMA needs to see your car first I think. Still not an easy task. Log onto the SEMA website and call someone they are usually pretty friendly and will give you the info you need.
Good luck! hope to see your car there. The motor is awesome.

I can get the out side of the car looking nice very fast. All i need are some rims, lower it some more, front grill and some other things. I am going to have a cage inside, with sparco seats, and my stereo.

Isn't Easystreet going to be there??? Talk to Ali...outside on the sidewalk would be good too though...I have wheels (volks TE37bronze) STi seats and DMS 50 (street) struts you could borrow or buy (but it sounds like you have used all your money).

That's awfully generous of you.

P.S. Nick, I don't think I have anything you want to borrow.. a bunch of stock suspension and couple sets of tires.

I think you should try calling manufacturers that can easily add something to your car and then display it on their floorspace. You may want to try some seat manufacturers, maybe get a company to sponsor you on a big brake kit as well. I don't think any company will just put your car there unless you have something of their's to show on your car.

I think you should talk to a brake company and try to get a sponsor. Then ask them if they have a spot in sema. Maybe they would let you in with them. I know one of my friends might get his car done by sema. He got sponsored by stoptech and they said they would give him a spot if he wanted to enter. I guess that could be one way of entering sema. Good luck man. Love your ride.

By now, all of the vendors will have their booth cars set in stone. Something like this is setup months in advance. Your best hope is somebody flaking, car not finished in time, or falls off the trailer

I`ve had cars at SEMA. It`s not worth the headache.
