Sorry for the lack of pictures, I was trying to knock this project out in 8 hours, so I forgot to take pics along the way.

But it's essentially the same thing as my other fiberglass builds.
1) get the rough shape
2) use painters tape to smooth the edges
3) fiberglass
4) sand
5) bondo
6) paint
Mounted using existing holes in the bumper and L brackets with speed nuts

Wow...that is quite a bit of blocking. This is for winter mode then?

I am interested to see how the engine temps are when it gets colder.

I actually need to trim it back a little. Per scan guage, Engine temps fluctuate from 188* to 206* max. Normal operating temperature is 186* to 188*. Subaru manual says radiator fan turns on at 196*. So I am pretty sure that the radiator fan is running a lot.
