sunfire grill block

ok so i am going on a trip to jasper tomorrow, it is around 300kms. i wanted to see if this would make a difference.

this is the front of the car. the painting is just bonus.


this is the new look. i don't have to worry about over heating as the vent were just for show. i used white coreplast, and found that they have clear duct tape. the whole thing did not take long.


this last photo is of the back bumper cover, it is not very smooth. i need to figure a way to make it better.

Looks like a NASCAR race car run at Daytona or Talladega. Not that it's a bad thing.

I want to do a grill block on my Saturn, but I'm afraid it would look too "ghetto". Now if I could just find some color-matching foam to stick in my car's gaping toothless grin...

Yours looks really good.

so i went to jasper. it was a great trip, climbed the mountain, and it did not rain on us until the top.
about the car. it ran great, the cruise control was not working and so had the chance to drive better, i mean slowing down up the hills and that kind of thing. only got 29mpg. but had four guys in the car so it was not light and i was driving towards the mountains and so that meant a lot of climbing hills.

I know the radiator must be getting air from somewhere - but where?
From the small gap below hood's front edge?

Did you look into replacing the oxygen sensor? I looked at the spoiler placement. It seems to be in just the wrong place for FE. You might post a thread about it.

this is how the rad is getting it's air. it flows under the front edge of the bumper cover and then is sucked up wards by the design of the undertray. a small air dam deflects more air up.


it is a true bottom feeder.
