Almost done my front splitter


And some ideas for some side plates.

The splitter is quite strong and I can stand on it near the supports. And it helps continue on with the flat bottom of the rest of the car. I figured I needed something to make the front end stand out since I'm not going to run any bumpers on the car.

Working on the headlights. I used some acrylic sheets and made a small wooden jig with 2 holes and sandwiched the sheet between it then heated in a oven and used a bowling ball to form the curved lense.


Also front end is now fastened on with 5 dzus fasteners and to points at the front with a tow hook. "Side Skirts" are made with 6" garden edging and fastened in the stock location.



Also I found a trick for making led tail lights that I will post soon

Rear Diffuser attaches to the bottom of the rear bumper and extends all the way to the engine.

Yeah the diffuser would probably hinder cooling in an aircooled application.

Here are some pictures of the projector lights in action.


And LED tail lights

Coincidentally these fit perfectly in the elephant foot

I used one of these for the so I can have stop/turn/running light.

Splashed some paint on the forever grey car.

Went to a swap meet at the local vw parts shop AVR Imports.
