Hey guys

Some photoshop work.

Let me know if this looks good. Else suggest modifications. Just that there would be black skirts and a black spoiler to go with it. So it might look a little blank now, but once these things are up it may look different.

Cheers

Yes only the B-pillar would look good. OR whole car matte black

Dude,
None of the after market skirts were to my liking. Somehow I just don't feel they would look god on an ikon. Thinking on getting something fabricated. Ill send you a few designs once I can pick up something that can be replicated. Else would have to work out a designa nd get it done. Promise to send a few snaps as soon I can get my hands on something good.

update

All the mechanicals have been sorted out. So has the suspension and steering. Wheels mounted. Filter is on as well. Complete servicing done. Car feels so much better. Throttle response has improved immensely. Took a few snaps

What remains

FFE fabrication underway
Skirts and spoiler
Headlights and tail lights
Dash painting
Front Mesh grill
Other bits and pieces to finish off

Car should be done in a week and a half I guess. Before track day for sure

Dude, met someone who is into bumper mods and skirts. He said he could get the skirts and spoiler customized as per requirements. All he needs is a photo or a clear description. He had a truck load of photos and designs as well. Saw a lancer and a swift outside his workshop done up to striking proportions. His quote was a little high but that was upon first inquiry. I'm sure a good bargain can be worked out.
