Ah, gee,Tony. I wanted it to be a surprise! Yup, thinkin' I will stick the Pontiac Vee back on. After all, it's shaped kinda like a vortex generator. Stay tuned.

There is a hole where the badge attached, but the support is needed along the very top, and on either side of the center.

Thanks, Trik!

Alrighty slackers ... now one of you needs to go and make some wheels skirts for the Vibe, thats next on my list, but I am underfunded now that I started school again ...

BTW, my Vibe has the double interior console, the one that open with a mini compartment, which many owners are seeking out. Are either one of you interested in one? I have it, but need to exchange it for a regular one because it is to tall for me and it is causing me problems with my shoulder. I figured I would offer it up as an exchange to one of you guys before I decide to sell or trade it with another owner on genvibe.

The top of the coroplast is somewhat unsupported yet, and I'm afraid that at speed it might be bowing back and not staying flush (hee hee, he said flush again!) with the front lip of the hood. I'll have to address that next.
This looks totally Batmobile. Cool.

Lookin' good.......Coroplast is some surprisingly tough stuff. I know I failed you on the vortex tube scans, but if you or anyone on the board needs some Lexan for grill blocks/etc, I have a good sized piece that I can cut sections out of. It is 3/16" thick.

Don't worry about it, dentprone! I really appreciate you looking for them. I know how things get misplaced.
Lexan?
Would that work to smooth over my fogs?
Hmmm. We may have to talk.


Trik, (you don't mind me calling you Trik, do you?) I think I have the same console as you. It's too tall, isn't it?
I'm currently all out of coroplast, so no wheelskirts planned for the immediate future. Besides, I'm not exactly sure how to fair them in to the rear bumper. It's not real obvious in this picture, but the tire sticks out enough that it would be a pretty sharp bend on the aft side of the wheel well.

That could work well, let me know what size you need (x2) when you get ready to tackle that project.
