Diffuser is done. Michigan Machine Worx is making the exhaust trim piece. We came up with a reverse NACA duct design that will be billet and powdercoated. The 3D print is a prototype to confirm fitment.







Pic before wet sand/buff. You can see the bronze highlights but they are subtle.

Few will notice these but they turned out amazing and are functional. Thanks to Michigan Machine Worx! Will be powder coated black. And a schedule change we are going to Des Moines Goodguy's instead of Columbus.

Nice pieces Chad!! I think you're like me. Some of the things I do, people will never notice, but the fact is...I know it and it's what I want. To me, that's all that matters.

Saw this in Des Moines this weekend. It was too hot to really study it at length, but the level of this build is amazing (and I realized that word is wayyy overused). Stunning is an understatement. I'm not much of a red car guy, but this shade flat works, and the accents are perfect... not too much, not too little. I don't think I have ever seen better fit & finish. And that motor?... it's presence is undeniable.
Well deserved top 10 pick. Not really sure why it wasn't chosen for "of the year" finalist. I'm thinking Columbus may change that. Good luck next week Chad!
