I like those doodles. That sounds wrong :P

I think it would look better to cut away metal for this, but understand that would rule a lot of people out so would be happy enough for something that goes over the top.

I'd love to get a hold of one of these and adapt it to my ZX, I've got enough S30 parts on it, why stop now?

Great drawings Chartoo, personally I would prefer my splitter to have no reflectors built into it. That would make it a bit more functional looking vs ricey IMO

Looks very tough. Guess I could be pencilled in for purchase if it looks like that. +1 for no reflectors.

Im easy with the reflectors. Maybe just leave a small blank space, a few centimeters, so if ppl want to add reflectors or lights they can

Okay guys got some rough sketches from Freddy at Topstage for splitters. These designs are for 'the Cosmetic type'

Fully functional ones with undercarriage will have to be made custom or later on if there is alot of interest.

Anyway these are just rough sketches so things like lines, reflectors, gills, vents, etc may be added once we determine which one we like and proper detailed designs are sketched.

Freddy insisted me to only Post up Designs 2 and 5 as he believes they will work the best for the Z without too much if any modification to rear valance. But i will post them up anyway so you can get an idea of what certain splitters may look like.


The last pic is a more detailed (not final sketch) close up of what Design 5 will look like and what Freddy recommends being a Z owner himself.


So guys get discussing. Do you like Design 2 or 5? Any changes? Any other ideas? speak up and lets get this rolling.

Design 2:



Design 3:



Design 4:



Design 5:



Design 5: Close up detailed:

First thing thanks for the hard work on the designs freddy.  I would say all the designs are good and I like number 2 best. The only comment I would make is that they might come accross a little agressive in the styling compared to the rest of the bodywork on the car such as the front spoiler and some zg flare. What are other peoples opions? Now is the time to add your 2 cents. Thanks again freddy ;)
