(phase 2) Flat-bottom panels update:
So I finished one of the panels and installed it this weekend. I think I got a little aggressive with trimming out the silhouette of the exhaust on this one because I thought it would be hanging higher, but its not bad. I will probably not trim off as much on the other side.
Before I get into pictures of work, I wanted to layout my plan for the aerodynamic panels.
Item #1 in picture: Beatrush under tray and flat bottom bumper panel
Items #2-5 in picture: ABS panels under cabin area
(EDIT: ABS Panels have been replaced with Aluminum. Panel 2 & 3 are now one panel, and Panel 4 & 5 are one panel.)
Items #6, 7 in picture: ABS Panels under trunk area
Item #8 in picture: Upgraded rear diffuser
With that being said here is my work on fabricating and installing panel number #5:
Mocking up to cut for tab connectors:
said tab connectors:
testing fitment (fits pretty snug
finished trimming out exhaust silhouette (ignore how large the hole is on the front end, I had struggled to line that one up...):
and the final installed product (notice the "plate" I had to use for the enlarged front mounting hole...):
Now to move on to the other side (panel #3)!
