I'd like a copy of that file also Braineack. Please! dxf, dwg, doesn't matter.

While were looking into dimensions, anybody have a drawing of a radiator cover?

i should talk to gary about extending his splitters. He's going to charge me tons of cash though.

it's 55" from end to end. designed for the "R" package front spoiler, direct trace of the TDR splitter, however I got rid of the "wings". Then I just filled in the rest and gave room for the wheels.

Thanks Braineack! You da' Man!

Being that this is a trace of the TDR splitter, it should extend 1.75". I think I am going to offset the outer curve by .75 and make it extend 2.5. A modified set of my end links should work great for the center adjustment/support.

I will print it out on my plotter one to one and make a cardboard stencil just to make sure.

Braineack,
What did you create that file in? Autocad doesn't like it. I can open it, but it doesn't have any properties.

How about an iges, sat, or step file?

Google sketch up maybe? Nothing free really comes to mind.

Can you add dimensions and send that file? A jpg or pdf would be fine.

I'd be happy to redraw it in CAD, both 3d and 2d.

PM me an email address so I can send you the file.

I don't think you understood what I was asking for, but I winged it and made it work anyway. I was asking for a pdf with visible dimensions. I ended up just tracing the image and coverting it to a parametric model. It will still be a pain in the *** to work with, but the shape is simple so it shouldn't be that bad.
