Trying to figure out what material to use for a kamm setup, I want a clean design so no coroplast, it's gonna be a "factory style" setup if that makes sense, so not huge, need to use something that can hold up and won't sag or need bracing, wanting a kind of plastic, found something called expanded plastic PVC that sounds good, thoughts?

Ordered some 3M tape and a 24"x28"x1/4" sheet of expanded pvc, smooth finish, easy to use, and only $25 a sheet Will be building a multipiece stealth kamm, consisting of a 3 piece top "spoiler" and multiple side pieces so the shape flows well with the car, all will be painted to match! Might do a YURASTYLE design over the taillights.

UPS returned plastic to sender as it was damaged they're sending a new one, so studying the front, have 3m tape and some thin aluminum, going to smooth over the area where the fog lights are supposed to be, at the same time I'm trying to part out my Subaru on eBay, fun
