Thanks! I’m not nearly at my summertime goal but I’m trying... here’s to breaking the 50(at the pump) barrier! (For real, this time)

I wonder what benefit you would get from combining your original kammback with the lip extension.

$920 in damage, which I’ll be able to fix for about $20 out of pocket, keeping the rest of the check... more mods to come!

I have a trunk full of cardboard from modding plus a wheel skirt in the back of my car. Thank goodness cardboard is light!

Any further results from the extension?

About the extension, I hadn’t yet gotten a chance to load test it at 55mph, however, my coasting points occur later and I’m holding a little more speed into certain corners so I assume it’s helping... just don’t have an instant MPG reading at 55...

And I gotta replace a fender and header panel... have a fender on my parts car that needs paint(that I have) and the header panel is like $15 on rock auto...

Sounds promising. I just might have to try it out myself too!

That's all and the insurance valued the damage at $920??

I like your thread, but you gotta stop taking photos in portrait (upright) with your phone. Take 'em landscape (sideways) so they aren't auto-rotated wrong on the forum (and because you generally want more width in a photo than height).

Well ya got to consider theyíre getting those numbers based on what a body shop would charge. They billed $4xx for labor alone, 3xx for parts replacement, and almost $200 for paintwork... they usually blend the paint up onto the hood and door to make the car look as close as possible to new because even the best paint mix doesnít 100.0% match whatís on the car

True, but still. Since you're replacing the fender how about just modify the bumper to perfect its aerodynamics?
