Prosecuting Attorney!

Remember a year ago, when I put that HUGE airdam on Rex? Well he gained the nickname The Judge cause the piece of coroplast I used to make it was a sign to re-elect a judge and it said JUDGE in big blue letters across the bottom.

Well, introducting Rex, the prosecuting attorney!!!

I think you should have turned it upside-up. NO ONE would come near your car to mess with you.

Well, I plan on painting it, and with the letters upside-down they will be less noticeable if they show through the paint. But, nonetheless, an egg-salad idea

Today I was thinking, would this be the best thing to do, or would it be better to just block off the holes in my front bumper, leaving it kindof bullet-shaped, instead of a big rectangle pushing into the wind? The only reason I doubt it is because that would push a lot of air under the car.

Here's a photo of my uncovered bumper for reference:

From the other thread you just made that asks basically the same question:

The winner of both of this year's AMEC Fuel economy run has one, so as far as I'm concerned you should make your car look as much like his as possible (See AMEC threads). $10 worth of aluminum stock from a home improvement place will build you the support you need to turn that piece of coroplast into a cow catcher.

what did you use to secure it onto the bumper? looks pretty tightly held on there.
