And hereís the grill block cut out. This was my first time cutting Lexan so the cuts are far from perfect

And hereís the Grill Block Installed on the SI Grill:

The cuts are not perfect but this should give me maximum aerodynamic benefit while retaining a Stealthy EcoModder Functionality and keeping the carís aesthetic appeal. Iím getting the best of both worlds. Plus Lexan is incredibly durable and wonít fall apart like plexiglass.

Iím going to start a full build thread so check it out for more things to come.

Good stuff!

The lighter wheels thing I am a fan of. Lowering unsprung weight affects everything else positively, although the wheel design itself can be less than aerodynamic.

Are you running winter tires for the season?

I'll be taking notes on the grille block. Texas is wavering between 40 and 80, so I have some time yet to apply one. Would like to see your WAI too.

Welcome to the community. I live a little north of Kokomo but I commute to the NW side of Indy daily for work.
