1989 Chevy Celebrity 4 door - my build thread

I decided to make this up after I got home from work today. I used another piece of scavenged aluminum siding and cut it with the grinder so it spanned 2 ribs. Then I carefully worked it into the right shape and cut about 7" off each end. I kinked it a little but not too bad. It has a rib at the top and bottom so it is not very flimsy. Then I put the car on jackstands and drilled into the underside of the valence for screws every 6", so if I take it off you wont see any screw holes. I used a bunch of GM dash screws Ive saved over time and they got a real good bite. After dry fitting it, I figured might as well keep with the trend so I used the same paint can as I used for the grille block. It was pretty dry so I put it on just before dark and took some pics. I think it looks kinda cool from the front. Ill see how it does tomorrow and from now on. It is easy to straighten if I hit it on something. Or if I really muck it up, Ive got enough in that piece of siding for 1 or 2 more and make it a bit shorter.

Heres a link to the first aeromod, the grille block.
