No plans to remove the airdam, I don't consider the belly pan smooth enough to eliminate it... I hadnt thought of mosquito screen

I have plans for the rear, but the exhaust needs re-worked to make a full diffuser for the rear... Plans are to run new tubing from the resonator to a Thrush 17652 muffler, then run the dual outlets right under the rear crash bar, nip the bumper cover to fit them, then fab a full width diffuser(instead of losing 14"width to the stock muffler), trimmed around the exhaust tips of course, and with a cutout in the center, near the leading edge, for the new muffler...
