Haven't seen that one Mike - is it new? Who did it?

Any close-up shots of how the custom lower is attached to the stock upper? What material is it?

Hmmm, I suppose this isn't the right place to discuss this - I could break it out as a new topic, if only I remember how....

I think it's a snow-plate grafted to a stock bumper.

IMO, looks like someone is ruining a decent XR4, and given the XR4 a bad name with the way it looks, but if thats what you are into I guess go for it :roll:

I guess this pic/post were "moderated"... It was originally posted in retaliation for Brad's "custom" grill treatment pic.. The car belongs to a dork I once had the misfortune of dealing with. :oops: Here's a pic of the shelf, "T"! (sorry, Ian..... a little Pepto Bismol works wonders!)


And from the side! :shock:

That does REALLY place the wing in the airstream. However, lifting the front wheels of the car off the road when you hit 60 mph isnt very safe.
