I love that splitter!

The car looks good, but I love that splitter

Apexes are a lot like relationships. So tough to get right, so easy to see where they went wrong.

Well, I sort of let the Elise go and, um, bough a Noble

x2! Side sills are nice too. Cool to see everything in the same color, looks like it all molds together that way. Weird how your color looks SO much different in that first picture

Pretty good, what happened to the rear tires? the camber looks odd.

I love what you have done with the front clam, I imagine that it's going to be very easy to damage it though with that lip molded on. Good luck!

It is a wide angle lens, so it distorts. That is why the APR wing looks distorted in the 3rd pic down from the top.

Looks nice. Curious though - what's with the decal on the BOTTOM of the windshield? Isn't it distracting? Gotta say that's the one bit I really don't like.

Also, do you track a lot? I ask because those APR wings are huge and I'd imagine a lot of guff from folks if the car isn't tracked.

Thank you! The sticker is for my company (the lotus makes for solid advertising).

I do not track it at all The guff I seldom receive, but if I did, it would not bother me
