    Side skirts are on. Gen 1s. Modified a Gen 1 rear valance to mount on the Gen 2 rear bumper. I have to buy 2 more items. Then I will paint the Gen 2 front bumper and new trunk. Hoping to have that done early spring.

    Awake from winter sleep. Needs a bath. Work has been slow. Funds are short. Hoping to start modding in a few months. Taking my youngest to Disney World. Priorities.

    I found a fabrication shop locally. Thinking about designing a hub. Put that mechanical engineering experience to use. See what the cost will be to make a single piece adapter. Cost will be a deciding factor for sure.

    If making 2 vs 1 lowers it, let me know and I can go in on it with you. (cost also being a deciding factor for me, and spacing finish I suppose. I want to go with a different wheel this summer and maybe some seats to get more weight out of this car.
