Front Downforce

So I got round to completing the front aero parts and here is how they look at the moment. I'm very pleased with how they look and the fitting was very solid for the canards and side fins. I think it looks a little extreme but that doesn't bother me as it's function over fashion in this case. I suppose I will see how well it performs once I get it on the track which will hopefully be in July or August time.

I just need to attach the back of the splitter to the chassis underneath. I will get some shots underneath the car once I have it on the ramp.

Canards and Front Diffuser Fitting

Test fitting the front diffuser.

Trimmed to MSA specification of 50mm protrusion guideline.

Trimming the canards to the appropriate size and curve to match the bumper.

Painted the spark plug cover in matt black to go with the stealth theme, the blue ignition leads should look smart against the mono colours.

I'll have the final tidy shots of the completed front bumper by next week and some test fit shots on the car too.

Auto Craft Evolution Carbon Fibre Canard Set

Having deliberated for quite a while I decided to use a set of universal canards and side wings to fabricate on to my Civic. I know it is going to involve quite a bit of fabrication work but it will be worth it in the end.

Along with fitting my adjustable carbon fibre splitter I will have completed the down force for the front end.

I will post up some progress photos along the way when I start to fabricate the canards and splitter to fit snugly on the bumper of the EG6.
