07 zx5 with attachments.

My 07, to which I have been making a front air dam, rear valance (new) and the rocker panel bits. Hope you like them.

This completes the exterior mods except for some minor fiddly bits.
And
Wife says I suck taking pics, so maybe better ones later if she gets time.
Please see end of thread for updated pics. I had to do some editing.

Thanks!
See siggy. FRPP shocks/struts. It appears high because the camera angle is low? \Tinting >> It has never really had any appeal for me. I like things I can do myself. I don't think I could do a credible job, hence no interest.

Tint is more of a comfort/luxury mod that should only be done by pro's. I can't drive a car unless it has tint.

Good job all the way around on your homemade lip kit. The mesh in the back should be black. Right now I like the front way more than the back.

Agreed! And I am certainly far from that. Painting the mesh black is one of those 'fiddly bits' I mentioned. I also have some edging for the back 'splitter' bit I need to fit (requires a precision cut at a difficult angle). It will get done soon-ish. They say the heat wave is supposed to break a bit over the next week. Hope that holds true. currently, it is too hot to paint (paint flashes to quickly if over 95F).

Update: I deleted the original pics as they were overly 'filtered' (A.K.A. photoshopped. Which was my fault).
Follows: 4 pics and 1 'party' pic. Weather: We finally got some cloud cover so the light is not like laser beams. But, I still think the car is to dark. But hey! it's a dark car. I just find it frustrating that many little details go hidden (being sorta techy! I love details).
Hope you like!
Front 3/4 shot: Features the 'rebuilt' front air dam. Minor changes to the rocker panel bits.

Drivers Side rear 3/4 shot. You can see a bit of the detail on the rear valance. Although not the fit and finish (which I am very happy with).

From the side. (mug shot?)

Front close up. Note the drivers side splitter. This was horribly mangled on a trip to see my son on the farm. It bent and 'broke' perfectly (no damage to the bumper at all). I dismounted it, hammered it straight and all good again.

Party Pic. As my wife took the photo's (she is so much better than me), she wanted to have a little fun. The car is not edited. She added some 'graffiti' (she is an artist). I especially like the dancing coyotes.

Looks good.

I would like to see the rocker panel pieces have a bit of a curve to them, and less angle, possibly stretching a but further down the rockers. But, as far as making your own body pieces, Bravo!

Here are old pics, but still accurate. Please use these as a sort of guide and draw a clean pic of what you mean exactly. 'bit of curve' has me stumped frankly. As far as stretching. They are designed so as to not inhibit access to the OEM jack points (with jack or shop lift pads). I am not totally enamored of the angle, but they serve to provide clearance mentioned above and they reinforce the mudflap bits hugely.
P.S. I will upload some new pics showing detail that is missing in all the 'normal' shots tomorrow (need sunlight). There is method. But much is hidden.
Front

Rear
