    I had ceracoating applied to the rear diffuser. It is now the same color as the headers/exhaust.



    Working on my clamshell brackets now and really do need to buy a welder. I had to trim about 3" off the clams. IMO, they look far better trimmed. I will paint them Lotus Racing Green.

    Looking awesome, Mike! I do like the clams.

    Thanks Shane. I cannot wait to get them painted. I'll probably start on the brackets next weekend.

    Be curious to see if they cause a lot of lift... they kind of look like wings in that one photo. You definitely have one of the most badass Bruntons around

    Mondo - I am not sure what to expect. If It becomes noticeable and a distraction, I will probably start drilling holes and installing louvers.

    Looks good Mike. I never had any problems with lift on chassis #10 but I never drove it much over 100 on the hiway. Auto cross was from 70 to 80 at the most. I also added a defuser much like yours plus an adjustable rear spoiler and front spliter. That did make a difference on big and fast auto cross venues like at Grissom AF base.

    I think MichaelD has holes in his clams.

    So I taught myself to weld; fabricated a couple of brackets and installed my clams and headlamps. Everything looks great except now I cannot open the nosecone/bonnet contraption because it will not fit in between the headlights. I don't want to widen the headlights any further because the car would then look like my college friend Big-Eyed Phil, so I think I'm going to end up cutting the nosecone/bonnet and have it function like those on other Sevens. Any other ideas out there?
