AZ's '96 Camry Wagon Build-Up Thread

Hey everybody,

I like to keep all my build-up stuff in one place, so I'm making a build up thread here.
(Non eco mods posted here: Toyota Nation Thread)

So my front bumper needs a new paint job anyway.
This being said I want to implement some aeromods into my "new bumper".

Here's what I'm working with





I started with some foamboard. First Stage



But I didn't like the fact the the side grilles wern't as flush
as they could be. So I added this



In the car



Seeing as the grille will be permanent, I wanted a little
bit of air flow so I added an intake





Final outcome of today



I'm still learning about Aeromods, so if anyone has any suggestions or ideas don't hesitate to say anything.

Oh, one thing that I forgot to mention. I was thinking of making the large lower part removable. This would give me the option to give the engine more cooling if I notice temps going up.

Before I paint the bumper I'm hoping to build a lower valence as well.

Update!

Woo-Hoo...

Okay, so I went in bit of a different direction than I had originally planned.
BUT I got to play with Fiberglass for the first time today, and while I didn't have a clue what I was doing, I at least had fun!

I'll let the pictures do the talking...







Here's the link to the rest of the pictures if you want to see more: Photobucket

Obviously It's going to need some sanding before I paint, but this is from less than an hour ago.
