Just got back from a supply run...

I went to Lowes and spent $60 on supplies for:

Lower air dam
Belly pan
Rear wheel skirts
Upper Grill Block

So... I figure it'll take me a year to recoupe my costs, maybe sooner depending on the difference these will make.

This is a game to me. It's fun and I can't wait to see what kind of improvement I can make. That and I LOVE modifying cars, so this is right up my alley.

Ok, so I got garden edging for the front air dam, a whole bunch of brackets and such as well.

2 18X36 pieces of coroplast to use for the rear wheel skirts

For the belly pan, I'm starting with plastic mats that you use to roll your desk chair on. They are rather large and should be ease to mount because I can see through them! Eventually I'll end up replacing them, but they'll make a nice template.

I got a piece of aluminium for the upper grill block. It should work rather well I think!
