So the Build goes on for the last few days I been modding the second part of my rear defuser I have taken photos of various Rear defusers and made one of my own I only done the panels as yet but the modded parts have come to gather well so Here a few pics and a slide show thanks for taking the time to look

the first part was the inserts that idid last year :-

https://www.flickr.com/photos/exiledviking/35924812146/in/dateposted-public/




The full kit made up of aluminium and a rubber/resin/fibre board that will be hydro dipped in a Carbon fibre effect...

https://www.flickr.com/photos/exiledviking/35156230123/in/dateposted-public/

the ally plate is to the road side and is a scuff plate only the small fins four of them will have ally strips on the base road side protection


https://www.flickr.com/photos/exiledviking/35924813386/in/dateposted-public/

one of the four fins the kit still has a long way to go and is only in rough form at the moment still more cutting to do to accommodate the tow hitch and the pull down electrics .....


the kit put together mounts and some rear bumper to cut so this fits its not just for show it will be there with the help for some rear end down force ....

https://www.flickr.com/photos/exiledviking/35126283614/in/dateposted-public/

all the fitting nuts bolts will be done in Orange all but the ally scuff plate will be done in Hydro Dipped Carbon Fibre  Effect to see more pics  please click on the slide show below ;)


 thanks for taking the time to look


Regards tony.c

Thanks Chris the front end bits are away for finishing that will be the nose cone /bumper done and then this kit will be sent off to have the hydro bits done will post some picks of it mock mounted up just making the  mounting brackets for it now and some cutting to be done one the lower old bumper


 I have got some hight/reverse/front sensors to fit front and rear with a new screen just cos its all getting a little low now   :sign0135: yep another screen I am taking out the crash cameras  ??? ??? :icon_scratch: too replace them with another unit that looks and is better than the one I have this will be mounted behind the mirror .... then this screen will be mounted where the camera is now keeping it all tidy ....... ;)








this unit Below at the moment dose not support a rear camera how ever I have an Email back from the supplier that in september this unit will support a  unit attachment for a separate cam to the main unit as a completed package so this will replace my old unit

This Is Only A Mock Up Of the Defuser Fitting......So Made the Mounting brackets today and did a trial  Run Of the Rear Defuser still a long way to go but I think there going to be enough rear down force on the lower wings the defuser is not just for show and when completed will be finished of in a Carbon effect hydro Dip....

Also went with the double staggered wing  as there is enough air flow for this modding the rear bumper was 4  X 3/4 slots need to be cut but hardly noticeable....!

Thank for taking the time to Look....!

mock up brackets made but some adjustments to be done, all the aluminium to be coated black nuts and bolts also need to be done in Orange .... this is only a Mock up the finished effect will look a little different .

As you can see the Defuser is mostly under the rear bumper & not protruding or extending the length of the body ...Also there no need to have it under the exhausts as they have there own air scoops
