Alright guys, sadly enough it was too late for me to snap some pics but I got done with the bumper, mounted and all. Will take the camera out with me tomorrow and snap some. I'll be driving it in the morning so I will be able to tell you guys how the change feels with these. Im actually tempted to take it out right now for some highway cruising

dammit where are these pics...

Id prolly make my own anyways, I just dont have any tools to work with sheet metal though. How did you make the bends in the sheet metal? Id like to start making some stuff like this myself.

hmmn thats a bit small, but this is prolly more the right size. I think Ill buy one of these in the near future. Probably would come in handy.

So you're the one the bought that from Ryan.....


Unfortunatly, if I were to do anything like that to my car, it would have to go on and off becaue it would throw me into another class for auto-x :( I do want to make a front splitter/undertray though.. and eventually get another decklid so I can get a big ricey wing.

Now you need to finish the rest of it so there is as little air as possible getting on top of it!

Looks good with that bumper!

I WILL be covering the whole underbody once I get my butterfly in. The rails took alot outta me physically. All I need is the middlepiece and a few other panels and i'll be set for underbody. Next week that beatrush piece will turn into a splitter too. After that i'll go for an APR wing. That may take a while being that im about to spend a shiny penny on some wider wheels and comp tires. Once both of those are done i'll move onto the engine build and be done

what's unfortunate? it goes on and off in 2min. frt./4 min.rear! plus my trunk with my wing on it takes 5min. maybe and is super easy. just 4 bolts. you put them on finger tight, shut the trunk, check the gaps, then open slowly and tighten the bolts, done!

Bravo, I'm glad to see more people puting some real effort into improving aero.. so many track miatas slap a hard top and wing on and leave it at that, it's sad really.
