Ok guys just spoke to Freddy. He apologises for not responding or commenting on this thread as he's very busy.

He has asked me to take care of gauging interest and gathering ideas etc. He will send me some designs hopefully by Thursday with prices etc and i will post up and we'll go from there.

We need 10+ confirmed or deposits to get this off the ground to make it viable for Topstage.

I will make a new thread soon once i get the designs off Freddy.

All questions regarding diffusers please PM me and i'll get you a prompt answer via Freddy as he doesnt get on the net much.



Thanks Tai

I would be interested in a real rear one, but depends on price.  Not interested in cosmetic.

The gear that Freddy at Topstage makes is top notch. I've been past his shop, he does aero for GT3 cars, we are lucky that he is a Zed fan and owner as well. The rear wing he made is awesome and addressed all the issues I have with the standard BRE one (BRE has gaps between the wing and the body on the sides, has a bulge on the RHS for a badge which hardly anyone actually uses, does not follow the verticle line of the body).

If there is anyone anywhere in the world for this job, it's Freddy. I have no personal or professional relationship with him, just lots of respect.

+1 for a cosmetic rear 'diffuser'.

Will save me a panel beating job on the back of my 240.

Might store one away for a future project if it's looking to be a limited-run kind of thing. Eagerly awaiting designs.

Throw up some ideas guys. Any input or designs i will foward to Freddy which may influence the final design.

Do you guys prefer to cut rear valance and put a peice in place or more of a overlay or something that hangs under original valance?

Personally im thinking something like the new 86 rear diffuser may look good.

Im using a VZ commodore one with refelectors, like the picture on the first page.

The rear section is going to be cut and this molded in some how, (When I say Im I really mean Mick Zzzzzed is doing all the hard work)

For me I wouldnt like to cut the rear up. I think one that fits over the top and then comes down a bit more than standard to cover the fuel tank. I think designs wise nothing outrageous or too ricey as its a classic car. Will post up a design soon

Yeah im not interested in cutting.  Was thinking something that begun under the lip of rear end, and covered all over the tank to a mounting point around there?
