Looks good. I'd concerned with the front licence plate; it seems to be blocking airflow to the radiator although I don't recall how low the radiator is positioned exactly.

The side blinker looks better than I thought it would. Not my style but a clean job.

Likewise; besides the part of the main radiator, the engine oil cooler is behind there--not a good idea when the weather gets hot and/or you run it hot.

by law you need one in Cali- but i've only got 1 ticket in my life for a front plate (17 years of not having a front plate) and that was when i was parallel parked in San Francisco OVERNIGHT.
