S130 rear bumper shaved/smoothed

Recommended Posts

Looks great there Simon! I see the front spoiler is ready for all the stone chips it's going to cop at all the track events! Hehehe..

are you going to put some mesh in the front bar to hide all the uglys behind it ?

Hadn't really thought about it, but now that you mention it.......

Got to make up some shroud anyway to direct the air through the radiator.

I can atest to that front air dam working. I'm always pulling leaves out of the mesh in mine. lol. I'm still in the process of boxing it in as well. Just holding off till I decide on whether I'm going turbo or not.  ;D

Looks good.

 

Just as a side, what brand/model of tyres are you running?

Wow, that looks REALLY good. :D

 

Love the job you have done with the rear, car looks super clean.

 

If done right, S130s can look pretty fantastic such as shown here.

That seemless welded rear looks really good. Definitely the way to go if you're respraying the car anyway.

 

I finally finished my new rear bumper. More or less happy with it apart from the crappy paint matching job! It's a foam mold i made and then glassed with 3 bolts mounting it across the back and the side little bits liquid nails'd. Ended up using a bit more bog then i would have liked but o well. I had to angle grind off a little bit of the rear panel which stuck out too far, otherwise not too much modification to the car was necessary once the stock bumper was removed.

 

It seems my car is pretty much the red 2+2 version of that black one, both have shaved rear bumpers and same front air dam. I do have a little bit of two seater envy however...

Here's the smooth look on a Zed rear end.

I moulded a fibreglass rear bumper to the body trying to hold the traditional shape, then smoothed over some holes and filled in the rear light surrounds to get rid of the silver bits that harbor the grime.

I'm not a fan of the S130, but that defiantly helps. :D

I wasn't a fan either, at first.

But have grown to love it, kind of like an arranged marraige I suppose.
