A.I.R. dp-style front valance install

and so it begins...

Greyhound finally shipped my valance yesterday, almost 3wks from CA to CT... weather delays likely.

Rough-hung it tonight to start getting a feel of fitment issues. Some nominal trimming needed around the bellows, but overall a very sturdy and decent looking item it would seem.

Also received my H1 trim ring trim rings... primed and ready for paint. Once again, pls sexcuse the garbagio cellshotz... f'n laptop USB is blocked so txt'ing pics is easiest workaround (notquite a reacharound)... driver lense saggage due to adjusters disconnected for lense R&R





With the paintwork it made sense to address my shotgunblasted side mirror caps, so off they came too. And I've always wanted to slot-vent my rear bumper ala bkreigsr's motif har, so that'll get yoinked this week as well - trying to lump all the paintwork into one Magic Bullet where possible:



What a kick in the frickin yonson that you pretty much have to cut the mirror cables... wasn't in the mood to unpin 97 wires from each connector and then feed each one thru, soooooo... snip! off they came. Joy.

Reading up on it, seems that's the route most take. Frustrating, I'm sure that'll pose quite the crimping treat when reassemble time comes. Awesome.

Projekt 126 simultaneouslike randomish projects, continues...

Just a little joke about the similarities between the truck bumper and your new valence.

^^^ I wouldn't go as far as to say it looks "bad", but to me, it is definitely a big notch below the looks of the original valence (much to blocky looking). I've never seen an aftermarket valence I thought looked better than the original (I think I remember Jwasbury saying that, as well - maybe he sniffs the same glue?!) and when the time comes for me to add a nose mounted cooler, I plan to do like he, and the guy with the awesome brown 930, did and built a housing for it into an OEM valence.

Chain yanking criticisms aside, a sincere good luck with all of your projects!

I like the DP valance looks, there was one on my car with a B&B center oil cooler when I bought it. It was one of the reasons I bought the car.
It reduces front end lift with the built in splitter on the bottom at speeds over 50 mph, has duct holes for running hoses to cool the front brake rotors, holes for flush mounting the original late eightees fog lights, and it lets you install a good sized center oil cooler.

Nononono, Jim... unpossable! Stock is best! Ronnie says so!!!

Ron-naz-ie (that name's apparently becoming more fitting w/ each passing day!?). Man, I can't fart around here lately w/o you being all up in mah grille yo!... lighten up, Francis:



Remember, opinons are like arsehoals - I don't want see yours and they all stink.

8-)

I've always really dug the look of this one, of all the ones stock or otherwise - to me - this one spoke to me the best. Suits the lines of the car, adds multi-levels of functionality.

Looking forward to install!

Tippy,

"Noticed you have a 3.0 tail. You running without an IC? Meth? See your sig says '87. "

That picture is not of his 930; it is picture of what he plans to do to his rear bumper. I believe he has a standard 1987 Tea tray rear spoiler.

That is a good looking front spoiler. I have been wanting to do something to the front end ( a bit more aggressive) of my car and this option would be certainly at the top of my list.

They all look good to some and they don't to others. As long as you like it that's all that counts. " Variety is the spice of life" and that's a lot of why we
are all here. Ya got to love and appreciate the spirit behind all the differences.

What a beauty. All sorts of nice personalizations... do you have a build thread?
And back O/T, that valance looks great on your car. I think the eye can change over time, too. I've noticed that with myself and rim width in particular on these cars. I know I used to despise 18s; but lately not so much.

If we all liked the same things how boring life would be!! Like Jim said it really does help at speed. No more LIGHT FEELING IN THE FRONT END over 120+ and the benefits the front cooler adds is mind easing in traffic or on the track. Go Paulie!!
