Thanks! The splitter was just a fun learning process. Definitely took a while to do it right though.
What I did was got a plywood board from homedepot and traced out the shape i wanted my splitter to be.
Then just reinforced the edges and mounting location with fiberglass/resin (also applied resin to the whole board to repel outside moisture).
Then just top it off with paint.
Obviously there are other steps involved like sanding/shaping/mounting.
Anyways, I highly suggest watching DIY's on how to work with fiberglass that way you don't mess up initially like I did.

It was fun to learn and say I did it myself, It's been a couple of months and everything is still holding up just fine. (Been through a couple of storms and lots of scraping)
But I'm going to cut out a full carbon fiber splitter soon anyways.

Thank you hahaha! The green grew on me too, but I had no choice lol
I was piecing together a turbo kit but that was before college started getting to much in the way. So now the next step is just to get my RBC polished, installed, then tuned.

I also really want a new look for the rear.. No more wing, just decklid buuuuut the only decklid I like is Anointed Aeros Duckbill. Missed out so waiting for that Ver. 2
Oh, and I gotta repaint the front end, looks like moon down there with all the rock chips...

Gonna get some actually camera shoots done tonight, so hopefully the next couple of pictures won't be from an iPhone

I really dig those wheels. Do they not rub on hard turns with a little bouncing from uneven roads? I have a wee bit more gap in the front with my setup and if I make a spirited right turn with even a little bit of unevenness in the road I hear the tires rub the fender when the springs compress.

I want to take off the wing completely haha. And I don't plan on cutting the rear bumper at all. Maybe I'll look into a CSL trunk... but I don't think they're as aggressive as I'd like. Anointeds seemed to be made just right in my opinion.

Would be cool to do a photo shoot of our cars together. Also, if you are taking the wing off I am interested in buying it.
