The only thing that I dont really like a bout it - is the difference in color between the spiler and flairs, but thats just me being picky i guess

i like the gloss black flares on your car, i have no idea if i want mine gloss or matt, i think whatever this roll on paint ends up being!

Evan, I don't mind the over riders but when I get the front bar rechromed i'll get rid of em.

I bought one of Warren at Z spares a while back ,mainly because I think it looks the pick of aftermarket dams,blends in with the line of the guards,and the urethane would last longer on Sydney roads/lanes etc. Fibreglass would die in a day.
:idea: Knowing about the flexing problem before I started I decided to mount it so it would have the strength to survive gutters, but also not wobble about at speed, This is what I did.
The old front corner panels that are not supposed to be used, I used, got the angle grinder to them and cut them off about an inch below the securing bolt holes, across the top of the park/indicater light holes.
I mounted the Zenon with the remaining strip of the corner panel behind it ,makes it more secure than just bolts and washers.better clamping(I didn't get pic's of this ,sorry)
Across the center flat piece, I cut a piece of 75mm x 2mm aluminium, curved the ends so it fitted snug on the underside of the flat center poly,(pic's) roughed it up with the grinder. in the center I attached a "tag" that bolts to the center grill mount, buttered up the aluminium with silicone(lots) , pushed it into place, with pieces of 3x1 underneath, long piece on the top, used clamps, 3 or 4 of them(as many as you can fit) to squeeze the alluminium/silicone onto the polyurethane, left it for the weekend(best left as long as possible) removed clamps and 3X1,
Result is ,strong as, does not flex, has enough "give" on the bottom lip to grind away, and survive the dips, speedbumps,and gutters of Sydney .town.

Anyway when i bought the car it had 4 small but major cracks in the front spoiler so ive got round to fixing them. basically i re-glassed 2 or 3 of them from behind coz it was cracked right through and flimsy and then used filler and sanded on the front of all of them. and also fixed up a tiny bit of chipped/crappy paint that the filler/primer paint wasn't gonna fill in. ive filled and sanded little bits trying to make it as good as i can 3 times now, at least its easy as to whip up some filler and apply, i think im nearly happy enough to start applying coats of primer. heres a couple of pics i took an hour ago:
