Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - Fender Vents are Next!

A little more progress tonight. Got the first hole cut, added a little flat black inside the fender and test fir the louver. Going to drop the louvers off at the body shop tomorrow for paint. Going blue :tup:









You can see straight down to the screen in the fender liner in this last pic. Nice, straight through path for the air :D

This thing is going to look awesome! Ha. Will have to do some "string-test" videos on them once installed. Matter of fact, I still haven't done that for the diffuser...

Going to paint it black or wrb?

Looks like it will reduce wheel arch pressure significantly.

Going WRB for sure. Inside the fender will be black so I think the blue will look really good on the louver.
Do it asap please. Haha

My car is leaving 21st Dec and I want to know if I order a set and ship it with the car.

Dropped them off today, and hopefully picking them back up tomorrow :D Should get the one installed and finished up this weekend sometime. Then I can start on the other side...

Thanks! I'm happy it came out as well as it did. I need to do a little more work on the touch-up paint on the edges but overall its pretty smooth until you get real close ;)

Looks interesting!
Looking forward to the final product :)
Thanks! I'm pretty excited about it. So far they look a lot better than I imagined they would :tup:

The ALK, flat bottom, and diffuser put you into a prepared class I believe. I'll have to check on the flat bottom being allowed in FP.

If it's not FP it's a mod class lol.

Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - Fender Vents getting painted

Got the louvers back from the body shop this afternoon. Went ahead and finished up the passenger side vent, installed it and painted the rivets :tup:

Aaaand pictures:








You can see much better through the louver down to the tire with the car on jacks:


One side done, one side to go! (Now you can go order you a set Idin :D)

Thanks.
It looks VERY functional.

Can you also take a pic from a distance 5-10m?
Hmmm, have to think about it.

Heres about as good as I can do right now:




Monday I should be able to post a few finished pictures from outside where you can get a better feel for them.
