Clever.

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.

Totally sweet - I am quite jealous. The belly pan and the Kamm back are close to ideal, I think. The twin active grill shutters is just icing on the cake.

This is front page material!

Man, if you could make that happen, it would really excite my dad! He wanted everyone to see what he and his brother have been working on.
just having the "ecomodder allstars" commenting on this is pretty cool

great work ~ awesome results

Your dad's car is an ecomodding model of perfection.

I hope it's okay to ask a few questions.

Is the abs attached to the bumper with rivets, or screws? Is there anything under the abs for bottom support or coverage, or is it open at the bottom? How far are the abs bumper and side skirts from the ground? Does your dad have suggestions where to find reasonably priced abs, and any other details?

Thank you both for sharing and posting the photos.

I'm hoping to make my bumper, and several other mods, the same way.
