You haven't been able to get a 400 for the front splitter profile yet have you?

Series 1 and 4xx parts are interchangeable in this side zone, as are the A-panels.

lotusexige I got PLAY-DOH’d too. I had an idea in mind and I’m glad I found PLAY-DOH (Wyatt). He turn my idea into a reality super fast and the finish and quality of these are amazing! Can’t wait to get them installed on the car (freezing in Chicago so will have to be another day). I personally wanted them to be hourglass shaped for my girlfriend getting in and out of the car easily and had some specifics for the angles of the “fin” and Wyatt was a pleasure to work with. He sent me mockups and progress pictures all along to way making tweaks and they turned out perfect. 10/10

YellowEvora Updated the Evora today and it turned out great... Thanks to Play-Doh's barge boards, Splitter and vinyl stone guards!!
Was able to install everything with minimal problems (the only problem I had was my own on lining up the vinyl stone guards). I also didn't have to take off the rear wheel, as using a ratchet with Phillips attachment easily did the trick. Easy, awesome modification! Highly recommend if you are looking for these to get with Play Doh.

zymotix3 Didn't get to finish the rest of the DIY vinyl black pack for the lip and the hood so I will have to post a revision when that's done at a time when i'm not too lazy, but here's what PLAY-DOH's side barges and front splitter look like on my solar yellow. I was going to red stripe the edges, but decided I like the subtleness of the barges/splitter blending into the black and standing out against the yellow on their own. I never realize how low the Evora is with the underside warping inward from the door, until seeing the barge boards inches from the pavement. Still need to get used to adding extra space for my legs when stepping out of the car and not accidentally stepping on the board. Really well made stuff though, and really awesome design, @PLAY-DOH ! The wife and I had a good giggle at your hand written installation instructions and illustrations.

I didn't use the double-sided tape on the front splitter since I figured I was going to remove it at a later time to vinyl the lip too, but with all the bolts up front and around, it doesn't look like it will go anywhere. I've been hitting 80 miles per hour on the freeway, and the lip's still attached to the car.

The hardest part of the installation was my stubbornness to remove the rear wheels to access the rear bolt for the barges.... it's definitely a must step, no way about it. You should amend your instruction steps to include removal of rear wheel to address stubborn people like me from repeating my mistake of needlessly wasting a whole hour thinking my hands were small enough to fit through. I also couldn't get one of the nut in the front of driver side barge to align and thread up, but the second one next to it fitted snug and tight, and I don't see any problem.

You are thinking of the comparison shot showing the difference in front and rear overhang on the 430

PlayDoh...tried to PM you but for some reason it will not let me... anyway, if you can PM me I'm interested in your splitter and Barge boards for 2013 Evora. I'm in SoCal for shipping. Thanks!
