Getting my aero back...

If anyone recalls, I got into a wreck in my Civic back in February - this prompted the purchase of the Honda Beat. Well this weekend I finally got around to fixing the front end of the car. I spent $82 at the junk yard and left with a fender, a headlight, a front turn indicator, and the corner light. I also got a rear vent window to replace the cardboard that's been there over a month from someone breaking in to steal my radio.

Anyhow, the front end looks MUCH better, though it's still off a little. I reused the bent bumper and bumper support, mostly because it lines up with the holes that are in the frame. I had to "trim" the hood around the headlight, but it turned out ok (for the Beater). I'll post some pictures maybe tonight of the finished product.

So now I can't really blame bad tanks on crappy aero.

The only aero mod I have ever considered doing is a grill block. I may think more on this as it gets to be winter.
