I will likely have to trim it. I plan on making a fiberglass under shell before I do the spats. I also might be runnig another muffler by then and I don't want to trim anything until I know the shape I want to do.

I already told you the lip looks good. Can't worry too much about lack of feedback here. Forum activity is somewhat down.

That's true. I know your opinion and thank you. I just think it's hypocritical of a community to want a clean nice aftermarket look, after 118 pages, and pretty much no R&D other than a few lips and 205 sides which everyone freaked out over. Someone makes something smooth and looks oem. Zero reaction.

In the end you can only do it for yourself. Very few will end up with body kits when it is all said and done, largely due to the work and uncertainty involved.

It might be hard to present you design without some proper wheels and lowering to make it complete. I have noticed that lowering the body line doesn't look as appealing without something more aggressive to set it off. Here is a quick PS to show what I mean.

Lip is nice. Is that an extension piece at the end?

I had to bend the end and stretch it to make it fit

You know I like what you're doing Will!
Keep it up! Even if people don't agree with what you're doing you are furthering development of the chassis and keeping it alive. That's what matters! I'd be right there with you if I wasn't stuck in metal repair.

I could definitely get down with this. Do you plan on making anymore?

If there was interest I was considering making a whole kit or as individual pieces once all done. But would require a pre payment and time. The lip, because the time involved would probably cost around $250-300 price range for parts and labor, but it is a very direct fit using mostly oem mounting points
