Default lotus exige diffuser

I tried adapting it to the miata. I had to cut a decent size hole in the right side to allow my exhaust to pass through, and I used some metal duct tape to attach a piece of sheet metal over the stock lotus exhaust pass thru hole, could easily get more durable metal, and rivet it over the stock lotus hole. I never got around to mounting it structurally sound enough, it kept rattling so I took it off for the time being, and cant decide if im going to bother getting it back on. my car is super budget and has plenty of things it needs before I consider aero, so its up for sale. more pics upon request. I dont think I want to ship right now, im looking for a local sale, but if nothing happens, I'll look into shipping if anyone is interested

price edit:
$100+shipping

It was kinda crooked on my car, its not bent I think I just might not have cut my bumper perfectly straight, but the diffuser fit pretty well after cutting it using the flyin miata left exhaust cut out as a template, then connecting the top of that cut to the stock cut out

Im still trying to sell locally first before I mess with shipping.

Localtech: check in with me when the time gets closer, If I still have it I would be glad to sell it to you!


more pics:

one is with the lotus holes covered with sheet metal held down by aluminum duct tape. a more permanent solution would be rivets

other pic is all holes exposed so you can see what your working with.

ok so i guess im going to give in and ship it. however if im going to hassle with boxing it up, and driving to drop it off somewhere, im going to ask $100+shipping. sorry for the raise in price, but its just really inconvenient for me to find time to deal with shipping, and im lazy. so im motivating myself with money haha. pm me if interested, and ill try to get you a shipping quote

Thanks

What a deal....you want it shipped, you pay $25 more and cover the shipping costs How bout just charging the person actual packaging / shipping costs and keep the original $75 price tag

By the way, not interested but I had to comment.....

I realize it might be bass ackwards but It just wasnt worth it to me to go through the trouble unless I was getting a little more for it. I realize not everyone wants to pay an extra 25$ AND shipping costs, but all I need was one willing person.

SOLD
