For the Mirror Delete I didnít just want to take the mirrors off the car and have a really stupid looking hole in the car where the Mirror once was. I roughly traced out the empty area to make a cardboard template to make a ďMirror CapĒ. This is continuing the theme of Function and Form. I want to increase fuel economy but also keep a sleek look doing it. I cut the Mirror Caps From Lexan just like the Grill Blocks. Now Iím using Lexan to hide the Modifications to keep this looking stealthy. At first glance you should only see a Lowered civic rice burner but under further examination you see this is actually a budget built fuel saving machine. I painted the back side of the Lexan cutouts with gloss black paint so from the direct side view of the car you only notice a tinted window. You donít even realize the Mirror isnít there!
