He did mention rear wheel skirts, but he is trying to get to market with something ASAP. The front grill block will be the easiest and quickest. I think his next project will be decided by whatever mod has the highest level of interest by those on this site and others. Why not reassert your interest on the hybrideffects thread.

Hi krousdb,

What is coroplast made from ? What is $100 a barrel now ? Maybe that is why its twice as much. I think we need to move to a future where petroleum is not burned and only used for plastics. That way, its sequestered. Like it was in the ground for many years.

Ran out of coroplast, again!
Full drivers side belly pan. 2/3 passenger side, missing middle 1/3.



RH Mirror Delete


Ready for bondo on the inside. Need to go get some later tonight. Once the inside is filled in, I wall add bondo to the outside to build up the contour. Then sand, primer sand and paint.

Are you planning to cover more? If I recall, when you did the VX and Del Sol, you covered everything, but left a channel/gap where the exhaust was routed.

Yes, just need to convince my wife to get more. The store closes before I get home from work and they are not open on weekends. I guess you don't need to be open much if you can get someone to pay $30 for a 4x8 sheet.

Looking very good

Maybe I missed it somewhere, but are those just sheet metal type screws holding it all on?

And, how much of an issue will it be to you when you have to remove this for some type of regular mtce/repairs?
