It's not that I mind being a dork, but sometimes I look at some of the modifications that people make, and wonder how many people turn down the offer of a ride, and car pooling is a great way to save gas, so if you can be tastful in your modifications then you come out ahead, right?
I've been wanting to make a grill block, and have been looking at what other people have done, and desided that making one that "matches" the color of the front bumper does not fit my taste, so a while back when I got some black sheats of what apears to be nylon, or something simaler, I knew exactly what I was going to do with them! it took me just over an hour, the plastic was free to me, and took about 2 squar feet including scrap of the 1/4" thick plastic, and it's held on with a combination of black polyurithane roofing calk, two zip ties, and a screw, and it leaves an area about 4" by 4" for air to move thru the radiator, after the calk drys I might paint the remaining grill, and grill block the same color of flat black to make it blend together better, but as it is it's not very noticable. http://www.nbtsc.org/%7Eryland/cars/...ideshow?seq=10
I can't get the photo to work, but there is the link, and I'm interested in hearing about what other tips people have on keeping the dork factor down in their airodinamic modifications.
