    Vehicle : Insignia VX-line RED Tourer

    Trim : No, over weight!

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    Default New mod (still undecided !)

    Due to stone chips on the leading edges of my side skirts and because the VX mud guards don't fit the XP sideskirts, i decided to make my own "flaps".
    I don't really like the big rubber aftermarket flaps so decided (after a conversation with Spoons a while back) to make my own but with a slight difference.
    So, i bought a rigid sheet of real carbon fibre (not sticky back vinyl).

    I've made a template and cut out the fronts with a dremmel on full speed.
    Flap held on with masking tape for the pictures.
    Here are the results.
    Tell me if they are ok or not as i can't decide !!!


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Won't rip out, no.
    BUT when i've done the rears, any left over carbon sheet is going to be a target for my air gun. That'll give me an idea of how strong it is and how badly it shatters.

    This is good feedback.
    If you don't like them, tell me what it is that you don't like.

    As i said in the title, i too am unsure.

    Well thats just it... I dont know?

    I like the carbon weave, that looks cool.

    I think they look a bit long (ie too near the road)... and even though its high quality carbon fibre it looks a bit cheap and unfinished.

    But I dont know how to fix that, so cant be very constructive with my thoughts really...
