my quick grill block

(Sorry, I should have probably posted this in the aerodynamic mod section.)

I needed something quick so my hands wouldn't freeze, so this is what I did. I just screwed into the bumper, it doesn't look straight, but even if it were square and straight it would look crooked because the car is tweaked :o . Compare to what the front looked like before (Bottom image).

Do you think the extra hanging at the bottom will help or hurt aero?

Ahh the joys of owning a beater, Just screw into the bumper:)

It makes installation so easy.

Nice work. I too envy the construction approach.

Do you think it would improve the aerodynamics if I trim the bottom that extends below the fog lights? Or could the extension help by directing flow under engine and chassis components that are back behind that area :confused: ?

It won't hurt to leave that extra bottom bit. (It's probably academic.)

I like you you cut a notch in the edge of the top block so you wouldn't cover the Chevy badge :)

I think a big clear plastic bag over the entire front end would have been a better choice to keep all the salt off the hood and engine inners. Just bag the entire front end lights and all!

I recently made a grill block for the protege. I will post some pictures tomorrow.
