Thank you sir! Also, thanks for the call on the speaker pods yesterday. By the time I had checked your VM, I knew you were (likely) far gone from the yard. I do have rear speakers in the EG, so I'm good. Thanks for reaching out though!

Stinks on your bra not coming completely. Are they sending it along?

No prob. I've told you before I'm a junkie when it comes to this stuff!

I've emailed the ebay seller twice so far, still waiting. Don't want to cruise with half a bra and Skiddy's "junk"hanging out We'll see what comes, time will tell. YOUR bra looks awesome, though!

Thanks,
Victor

I agree! I like the look of the bra, but are you going to leave the two little flaps on there or take them off? I don't imagine it being that big of an aero impact, but then again it is toward the front of the airstream and can cause flow to separate from the hood. Similar to pop up headlights, but obviously not as drastic in this case.

Hey OG! Just wanted to say that your VX is looking awesome! Hoping I can reach the same heights with the VX I'm picking up this weekend. Been lurking your thread for a long while now.

Thanks so much Littlestan. I appreciate your support!

Lot's going on here of late, personally, but more updates are coming.

Looking forward to hearing/seeing more of your new VX. LMK if you have any questions!

Update 3/14/2015- Rear End Aero; Continued

Hello all. Things have been busy, but I am making progress on TheDonkeyCRX-insprired rear-end aero work. I'm well into the metal-work at this point. I'd say I'm rounding second, heading towards third.

I finished up the rough-drafts with cardboard. Trimmed some things here and there, and added a small extension o the rear end of the kammback, mainly for looks. Gives is more of that "Spoon" look to it.





Finished templates; just before metal cutting began:



All drawn up:



After some research on the best way to cut the metal, I took it on down to Harbor Freight and picked this guy up. It does the job, but I can't give it four stars. But, better than using my grinder. MUCH better, actually...and safer. I like my hands and fingers.



Once all the pieces were cut out, I further shaped them with a grinding disk using my grinder.



I then began smoothing all the rough edges with an orbital sander. I used 120 grit pads (all I had). I'm heading to WalMart tomorrow for some 80 grit pads. Then I'll come back with the 120 and it should be butter.



Here's all the cut pieces. They have each been shaped with the grinder, just need some more sanding.



I also have the grille block and fog blocks just about done.

Hopefully tomorrow I can finish sanding, test fit them, and drill them into place with some small sheet metal screws. I'll then use the holes created in the body by those screws, enlargen them, and put nutserts in there place.

Until next time, Eyes on the Prize



Thank YOU for EcoTuning in.

Dude, that's going to be so sick when it's done! Kinda like an extended body CR-Z
But all mechanical - no "cheating" with electric motors, real lean burn, pimped out ecomodder style! This one below kinda has a happy face! I like when the car looks angry in the face, or kinda like the painting of the farmer and wife..



This one looks angry:


HAHA!!! Great Work!

Thanks,
Vitor

Thanks guys, I appreciate the feedback! I did some more work yesterday, but didn't make as much progress as I had hoped. Family has been fighting through a nasty stomach bug

I spent a bit more time indoors as a result, but did end up ordering some much needed parts:

- Full exterior LED upgrade. Every bulb, including for the OEM fogs. I'll type up a full how-to and review w/ pics once all arrives.
- Picked up some paint for the rear end aero panels. Going with Duplicolor Trim Paint
- Picked up the parts to make DIY rivet-nut installer.
- New JVC KD-LH910 headunit faceplate. My display stopped working. I'm HOPING that's all it is. I love this radio.

Also hunting down a bass tube locally. Thinking ahead to the trunk area. I'll be doing a false floor, with a sub, and compartments/holders for groceries, oil, jack, tools, coolant, etc..

As far as rear-end aero work, I did manage (after three attempts) to cut a grill block with fitment that I could settle for.

Need to finish the fog covers tonight. However, I'm struggling here.

HOW DO I CUT THE SMALL 3" HOLES (OVALS) FOR THE FOGS ON MY COVERS?

I have a Dremel, and metal cut-off discs. But I'm struggling here. I have some ideas, but AM TAKING IDEAS. HELP!
