Nice post. My airdam has repeatedly needed attention, as have the side skirts. In both cases, it is a consequence of less than ideal attachment methods. I also have gained greater respect for not only OEM design but for the craftsmanship of some of the projects we see on this site, done by people with years of experience and access to great tools and materials. Shows me the weight and importance of our industrial and craft history for contemporary culture--even though it goes under-appreciated.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
