I want that manifold. Car looks good. It would really set it off if it had NB2 side sills on it.

Agreed.

To the OP: Why did you keep the fog lights?

They will be coming out soon, Have a brake ducting kit going in there instead, just no time lately to install it.

And far as function it all works lol, but the aero is changing after the next track day.
Always loved LeMans GT cars so thats where my heads at and I work with roundy round cars so some of the ideas came from that.

Are the NB2 skirts somethign you want because of their function? I'd stay away otherwise. That's just me.

I figured they'd come out for brake ducting eventually.
