Hi botsapper,

Alas, but the finishing touches will probably wait till next summer, and the temperatures in Wisconsin as of late are getting cool enough to make the remaining fiber glass work rather difficult, but not impossible.

Spats and such can always to be added then, and I suspect some of the other tweaks that basjoos has made to his Civic will be added as well.

botsapper, do you have any pictures of the VW L1 from the angle you are talking about? I'm curious now.
