The front bumper is not truly flat. The middle is different than the rest. The front will be hard to do. I will be fabricating the rear diffuser out of aluminum. If I do anything with the front bumper it will be with aluminum as well.

Everything will be hand build. Once I get the first one done we will make templates and make them to order.

That would be sweet... Just need a splitter and bigger wing to make everything nice and even. Are you able/will you be doing any tests before finalizing design?

Can I pre-order one power coated bright green ;)

Let's wait on pre orders. Let me make the first one and see how you like it. I will be running a test when I travel to ky. I will check the fuel mileage compared to the last time I went.

mmm ... I'd be interested if you detect an improvement in mpg's. Obviously a cost : benefit ratio would come into play (plus it'd need to be wicked cool!).
