Bumpers don't match from factory. Also good luck matching any paint perfectly with out tinting or painting the whole front(other then black and white). Looks good man

You shaved out the emblem but left the stupid side reflectors!!!

If it was me, I would have filled/shaved the reflectors. Also, the flat piece underneath needs togo.

IMHO

Is it hungry? Does it want something to eat?

like the removal of the "teeth"
don't like addition of the front splitter
hard to tell how it goes with the rest of the car as you have not provided pictures of the rest of the car
but the addition of v3 sides and voltex rear diffuser should look good anyhow.

I had originally planned to do so... plastic welding is a biatch though! After I had repaired the crack and filled the area of the removed teeth, I had had enough plastic welding.

Reflectors are actually dry carbon sheet with aluminum brackets. Not quite as good as filling them but better than painting reflectors.

As far as how it goes with the rest of the car... it doesn't. Aero on the parts you can't see is completely stock. I plan to change that in the future but $$ is holding me back!

I should have them installed within the next week! Sure the markers won't be filled but at least the markers will be paint matched for now. I can get that MCR box off the shelf in the garage! After, ummm 2 years? I forget how long I have had them. lol

Actually made it myself... thanks for the compliment though.

Also haven't had this setup on my car since 2012... Had a C-west long nose and now I'm back to a Nismo V3 with all the "teeth" in place.

You made your own flat piece of carbon fiber that specifically looks like a universal cf ebay splittler and you sacrificially made it not to follow the lines of the front bumper?

I didn't make it to look like a universal splitter, any resemblence is purely coincidental. If you looked more closely at the picture with a slight view of the bottom, you'd see that the splitter is flat across the back from the end corners of the bumper so it's not just like that universal one. Also the core material is 1/2" nida-core, and that was layered with 2 layers of 1x1 and 2x2 carbon weave. Also impregnated aluminum mounting points under the carbon weave. It was about as solid as a piece of wood, but much lighter. I'm no master of carbon construction but it was a decent first attempt.

Anyways it served it's purpose for the time I had it on there. Deflected many curbs from scratching the bottom lip. I never did fill in the gap as I had gotten a C west long nose and matching sides... and this was all 4 years ago now.
