That's some high tech CAD drawings there Andrew. Sounds managable.

If I did make the flares you are talking about, would it reall just need to be the front portion and taper back to be flush with the fender at the top?

No excess vents, just a ~25" wide hole in the middle for the radiator and maybe a pair of holes sized for NACA ducts on either side so we can stick 2.5" brake duct hose on them. No turn signals, no parking lights.

Something like this:
Do this...

+1 Door bars and 3pt. strut tower brace.

Need door bar to work with stock seat 'cause I'm a baller racecar driver with a stock interior still.

Some stb don't actually do anything because of the way the mounting bracket is designed (bracket flex and/or poor mounting design). And adding a 3rd point is far superior. Function>fashion.

This is what I want. Only thing different really would be to have the bottom of the bumper come down to be a flat line, not curved like the RB bumper is.... Can't really see it in the pic though.
