My flares have been great, except for the dog that ran into the side of my car and made a screw in one come away from the body. Just don't mold them in on a daily driver.

That stripe looks great though!

Front looks great! Time to start playing with it's rear end. Start gentle. Use plenty of lube.

Wow dude, looks great! I think you have to do the back now to balance the car out.

My fiberglass parts have been fine for years....ok I'm lying. If you have a fiberglass bumper and tap something the wrong way, its gonna get fucked up. That's the only thing I don't like about my fiberglass parts.

Another front intake thread got revived. This is a double post on my part. So sue me.

This cooper scooper and the guy that cut the escort style slots got me thinking about this. What about cutting small naca spec openings in the skin? They are proven to move air effectively without disturbing air flow. Thought this might help our already **** poor aerodynamic cars and still improve cooling.

Default easier and better

Why not a simple cut like below? Two verticals topped by a horizontal, then push the cover down and screw/rivet it in place.

Very easy once the styrofoam brace is removed and a hair dryer is used.
