I love these things man, glad we were able to make a deal on them. I thought about refinishing them in Porsche GT3RS grey, but they are still in too good of a condition and I just don't have the time to mess with them right now. They go so well with Sparkling Graphite anyway.

Got all the repair materials needed and started sanding the damage. Unfortunately, the weather is just a tad too cold still to be doing fiberglass work, but I think I'll get started this weekend. Then it goes off to be painted. I'm getting really anxious to get these on the car! I'll send pics your way when I install them

I really like that lip, might have to invest on one of those. I think it looks good on our already dark car.

Haha! If I got a dollar for everytime someone says you need black grilles, I'd have a set sitting in my garage. Besides, if you are going to go for the lip, we'd have to differentiate our cars somehow right? I'll go chrome!

But yea, I highly recommend the lip. Looks great and flows with the lines of the front end!

P.S. Weather is starting to get warm. I'll let you know of a mountain drive soon

Thank you. That car belongs to forum member "vastano". As you said P40SC, Swift springs, Akra Evo. The car is white (forgot AW or Mineral), but in that picture, it's a matte white wrap.

Made some good progress today! My first try at fiberglass work, but I think it turned out great. It's already sanded down and ready for some bondo.

So here's a sneak preview:

Today, a couple of members and I got some work done on our M's. Picture of some Bavarian muscle cars:


At the end, we also threw the trims I've been working on. Wedge a few things under the skirts so that the tape adheres. Repaired Mode Carbon V1 + FRP skirt extenders on:


Proper ADM5 photoshoot coming soon!

Thanks, they aren't perfect and I still would like to throw on a coat of gloss eventually. Believe the skirts are made by Forcewerkz (the FRP version). Got them for pretty cheap, but they were also damaged so I fixed them at the same time I did the lip. Very straight forward. Have you accidentally stepped on them when getting out of the car? I did, gotta remember to not put my foot there anymore

the forcewerkz skirts are a nice design. I like mine. Many close calls but haven't stepped on them yet!

I don't know if you realized or not, but they also double up as mud flaps. Went on a drive yesterday and they were protecting the actual side skirts from little rocks haha
