my carbon guy is overwhelmed so the first run is going to be aluminum or powdercoated steel. I can then use those peices to generate the mold for the carbon down the road. I can look into adding fins via tab in slot features. Just more time. Fig

Do the fins add much to functionality? I def. prefer the look of having them part of the diffuser. And I'm in for a version that works with a rear lip.

I am hoping to have the mounting plate cutout after the first (laser cutter got super busy at the end of the year.)

I also picked up a 3D scanner finally....:D so I will be able to do some cool stuff down the road with perfectly fit body parts .

Nice, which ones where you thinking of?

In 5 years I will have the worlds fastest IS300... because everyone else will have parted out and bought an M3.
