I like it! Any more shots/details of the wing and the other pieces? Factory aerokit pieces of aftermarket?

Can you post a link to where you got the side skirts?

Mine are crap and need to be replaced.

Impressive - looks EXTREMELY sharp!

Might be angle but if not... black out those front bumper grills...
While at it - tint side markers and add a very light film on headlights (a super light film like 70, 80, or even maybe 90 will be enough to take edge off and not sacrifice light output).
This will complete your fabulous work!

Good luck

I like everything except the wing and silver gutter guard in the front bumper (painted black I think would be nice). The tinted tails also make it look more aftermarket, but maybe you're going for that look. Nice work on the paint, and the aero bits always look great. Oh, pass side painted grille surround (behind door) looks tilted.

Thanks for all the positive feedback.
The tacky wing gets mixed reviews.\
Young people love it.
Old people hate it.
As for the lights front and rear.
I left them alone with plans to replace the fronts with nice led projectors and clean looking rears. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find what I'm looking for yet.\
I agree the grill needs to be painted black in the front bumper.
The rear side ports, whatever they are called didn't have the screws in all the way but is now fixed. I was anxious to get it out and take some pics so was a bit lazy slapping things together.
The side skirts held up great with no cracking etc...
The were panel bonded, then screwed, then messaged to fit clean.
I am really happy with the result.
Unfortunately I am starting from scratch again.
A garbage truck driver was texting and rear ended me while I was stopped.
I will make another post looking for advise on what to do next including some pics.

Yippie - You just accused me of being young!

OMG I just saw the travesty in your other post... ouch ouch ouch. After all your hard work - so sorry but glad you're ok - that's most important! On the bright side you've done it once so second time will be easier...plus you have opportunity to tweak some things you want done differently.

Good luck

At 49, I qualify as old. The rear wing is coming off. Mostly because it's so heavy the shocks barely hold it up. Looking to replace it with some thing sleeker that attaches to the stock posts. It sucks to have to work on it during the summer. This should be a winter project. Summer is for driving topless or riding.
