Temporary Fogs and Upper Grill

Ok as I promised here are the pics of my temp fog and upper grill covers, they will be held in place by zip ties and painters tape (does anybody know how well that will hold in the wind if the surface is clean?)

I didn't see that other thread! Thanks for the link, it'll be good to see what some other new school civics are up to, I know most of the folks on here like modding the older ones.

The way they are sitting is how they will be on the car, I basically took the file folders marked out one side then folded it in half and cut out the two mirror images. They are slightly oversized to allow for taping and smooth transition into the stock bumper. I may have to add some reinforcement behind them as they're a little flimsy. Depending on the mpg increase I see if I want to make them permanent I'll do them out of fiberglass.
