    Ok, finally, done, I made some rear bumper spats. I used a pair of proper rear bumper splitters from Ebay I got cheap, brand new items, and the sides, well, can you tell what the are from the 1st picture? I used a heat gun to flatten and reshape it. I just needed something to finish off the rear lower line of the car, so it'd follow on from the Hamann skirts.












    These are the before and after pics.

    As for the spats.. I like it, but I'm on the fence with it. They don't look right somehow...

    Good job on what you did, though!

    I know, I've yet to finish them. Its the rear end of them isn't it, too square, so am still thinking of how to finish the corners. Also, the top corner of the rear may be curled in, or maybe the bottom corner.

    And cos they 'float', rather than stick onto the bumper side, it doesn't quite look right too.


    Remind you of Mr.T from the A-team huh?
