Last week had a great get together with 15+ VCOA atlanta chapter folks.Thanks Kenny for hosting!! We are getting good turn outs for the second meet anyway. I just couldnt stand the naked front end of my new R. If anyone likes it I might be up for making a couple more. And they arent any lower than the stock bumper unlike the winglets that always get ripped off.<br><IMG SRC="http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d134/zekeUSMC/DSC02935.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d134/zekeUSMC/DSC02932.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (ZekeUSMC)

I think those are pretty cool and a unique look for the R! <p>This may be a stupid question, and it may be due to the angle of the shot, but it looks like they are pointing upwards, are they? It would seem that they would create lift at speed, not good. I had a mid-90's Impala that had a front air dam which did that very thing. Fortunately the car weighed in at a less-than-svelte 18 tons or so, so a few pounds of lift at the front end really made little difference. Just curious is all.

Wow those look great! I wonder what they would look like on my 04, because on my bumper unlike yours the edges are black not body color. Did you make these? How so? Also if the price is good I'm interested in a set.

Re: (sacrifice)

Thanks man, Actually mine is an 04 too. Just sprayed that bottom molding silver and attatched splitter. Actually had them sitting in my garage I bought them years ago for my old 2000 R wagon. I happened to remember I had them after a couple days looking at the winglett-less front. If Im going to produce them I will let you all know. The price will be good trust me.

Yeah I saw that you had the black rub strips but paint matched bottom haha. Did you paint the rear also? Or do you have a body kit because I see skirts. Any way, these look sooo sick and I want a set. Please let me know asap when you can make some or if you wouldnt mind sharing how you made them, I would love to try and make my own set. Thanks man

Re: My new front splitters just in time for Atlanta chapter meet (Token Blk Guy)

More pics per requests. It looks like they are tilted alittle up in the front (optical illusion some times they look totally flat...weird??). Aero doesn't really come in to play until you are really breaking the speed limit by a whole bunch anyway. If I make some for the rest of you I will fix that with an angled spacer under it. Ohh and a before and after shot too.<p><br><IMG SRC="http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d134/zekeUSMC/DSC02965.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d134/zekeUSMC/DSC02976.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d134/zekeUSMC/DSC02923.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d134/zekeUSMC/DSC02956.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (mikesR)

I like the look, but I have one gripe. If there was some way to continue the line of the side skirts and angle it up to the front of the bumper, it would look cleaner from the side. It is not a big deal, but the only thing that I see wrong with the look. <p>Good work <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (GiRaff3)

Any other suggestions?? guys... gals... If I make this I would like to bring it to the masses. Im thinking of trying to reverse the molding on the rear of the factory kit but still keep the lowering of the front bumper to a minimum. Most of you know my style so I want it to be upgraded but still look like the factory thought it up. Ohh that reminds me the PCC 1 actually with my carbon front lip from the wagon is what I have in mind.
