All in good time my friend

So I have been out on vacation all week so I've been backlogged a bit on the projects. But I did knock out two things today. I installed LED lights in the tail lights and head lights. They look good but it did take some messing with to get them all in the right way... haha

I also finished modifying and reinstalling the OEM plastic undertrays. Removing them a few weeks ago reminded me of how light they are and that anything I replaced them with would be heavier so I figured out how to retain them again. This time around I have riveted aluminum angle to the corners to use as a rivnut retainers so I can bolt a solid sheet under the exhaust. I also riveted some more rubber skirting to the plastic undertrays to guide the airlfow from the front wheels away and isolate the airflow under the car MUCH better. Bonus is they can scrape the ground and stuff and either move out of the way or be ground down a little. No harm either way.









Next up is to fab the replacement underbody panels and move onto the replacement diffuser
