Another photo dump: CAD & coro mods

Now that the headlight is secured to the car again, the quarter is back on... aero mods!

Kamm & skirts...

Coro wheel discs...

Air dam, passenger mirror blank ...

I wish I'd kept all the mods I made back in 2014 for the Mirage that Mitsubishi loaned me to review. Woulda saved me a bunch of time.

Thread: 2014 Mirage aeromods A-B test: grille block, mini-Kammback, air dam, mirrors, 1 wiper

Oh, I also taped up the many panel gaps in the front of the car, between the headlights, bumper, hood, fenders.

I'm going to pick up a sheet of black coroplast later this aft.
