When I get my rc bumper I plan to use the fogs as brake ducting intake :)

I plan on using the side vents for brake ducting unless I put the running lights there.

Oh cool, I never knew about those. I might move my fog/running lights inwards like that, they look a bit obnoxious the way they are.

I'm interested to see what you come up with for this brake ducting (if you end up making something).

Yeah, the RC fogs are supposed to be mounted as seen in the picture above (I clicked on your project, and can't tell if you have the original RC fogs, but it also appears to close to the midline, regardless).

The RC fogs are the same part numbers as used on the MKIII supras. These fogs are not listed in the EPC under the alltrac. We figured these were actually a dealer option of some sort, where brackets were produced to accomodate the supra fogs into the RC bumper.

Joe and Keri have fabbed up their own bracket based on the original design, or you make whatever bracket of your own, and find used supra fog lights on ebay all day, and it'll be the same in the end when it's said and done, looks wise.

I like the RC fog placement. If anything, I would also consider fabbing up a brake vent on each side using the two triangular vents, or possibly use the driver side for air feed vent to my intake filter.

Mine are FET brand (according to the wiring and relays) twin bulb ones. They're aftermarket, but wired in fairly well and the brackets look like they might be these dealer optional ones you mentioned, as they fit the RC bumper quite well. Unfortunately, because they sit so far forward, someone hacked up the lower mesh piece to keep the little bolts for the underbody plastics. All that I need to do is move them backwards somehow, so I can order & reinstall the mesh piece. Oh, and hunt down a RHD fog light button.

oh so the first photos is the factory option?
i always assumed the second photos is the factory mount and the first photo with them toward the middle was after market.
i plan on using the space where the fogs are in the second photos so right below the indicators as brake ducting...

So I have the lip cut up and mounted with binder clips. Except for the single screw on both sides. I left a little extra material by the fender well to shape it a little more. I do not want it to go straight down but to taper towards the wheel at the bottom.
I ordered King Fusor 143. It sets super fast, but its supposed to be super strong and work great with this material. It also sands. I plan on using it on the center seam and the end caps that go inside.

Here is how it hangs naturally from the front. It does line up, the lighting is a bit funny from shade on one side.
Image

I may try and give the inside a little of a push out. I may make a bracket, but i may use the end caps that will mount to the inside of the fender to hold this section out.
Image

Here are just some various angles of the car with the lip.

Now for a few photoshops. Its actually not as low on the body as I thought it might be. Its obviously lower than the rest of the car. I think if I only do the lip I might just paint it black.

Here is what it might look like with st205 skirts, and 184's rear bumper lip.

I like the idea of only colourmatching it with the other bits added. Looks great!

Arg, my lip is too low! It scrapes on my driveway slope. So I would need some sort of ramp solution to get out of here.

I might have to mess around with another angle, but I I scrape with the stock bumper at certain angles yet clear coming straight down. The part that scrapes is a little more than 1" lower than my Z, but of course its a longer overhang.
