great work mike! i for one am not looking for a cosmetic piece... most of the parts on my car are for function... hopefully we can get this one to be cosmetic AND functional =) keep up the great work. i know that nerd that's posting on here knows his shit... but perhaps he missed the class on tact and etiquette as well. anyhow, good luck with the R&D!

OK I added the small fins into the cutout and I will give this design a shot first. Just need to model up some drawings now and send to my cutter.

looks amazing, hope its functional, is there any gain from having the outer edges wrap up around the bumper, like this...

^^ It channels the outer air a bit more and makes things look slightly more cosmestic. It will hold the flow slightly but its probably more for stiffness in the peice above. I plan on being flush with the bumper at the front. Air around the wheels is going to be pretty turbulent since they are fully blocking. I added the cutback corners to my design to create a cascading flow wrap around those wing peices and direct that back towards the center. Like a swallow tail on a snowboard

I will know here pretty soon. I think I will offer powdercoated steel, aluminum and carbon at a later date.

can the aluminum be anodized without significantly increasing price?

it will be too big to anodize economically. That is why the thin steel with powdercoat will be a better route. Carbon eventually....eventually.
