Rear Diffuser

Postby EricGT4 » Tue Dec 09, 2008 9:58 pm

So I went delving into the body exterior mods area today. I found a photoshop that I thought was really cool and was trying to think of a way to pull it off.

Photoshop:

So I was thinking maybe I could get a nice diffuser from another car and have my bumper chopped up a bit and work the other one in. Right now the one that I found that I though might work so far is this RX-7.

Any input or ideas regarding this?

second one looks good to me.

BTW any other links to abs ones? i'm not into the carbon thing and it's horrible for me to work with. i'd like on as big as the first link but in abs and not 600 bucks for something i'm going to chop up. fiberglass works too. just not carbon.

i'm a bit torn on what to make it out of. fiberglass or i can get a sheet of 1/2' plexi. hmmmmm....

i leaning on the plexi side. it won't take nearly as long and would be easy to replace should it get tore up.

As long as its functional and has good fit/finish it shouldnt matter. People usually have a preference but you can always do fiberglass later once you got something that works.

I was looking at the gas tank cover. I wonder if one could just cut the bottom of it off and kept the sides and mounting points then fiberglassed the diffuser to the base of that.
