Lips and Wing Tips

I admit I've never been a fan of carbon fibre. That was the main reason I did not install the Kansai front lips because it only comes in carbon fibre. I wanted it to be in FRP so that I can spray it red in order to obtain a singular colour on the front end. But alas, things are not meant to be when a good friend offers you 2 Kansai carbon fibre front lips at an unbelievable price. As you can see, they look incredible. It gives the front end a more aggressive look and not only that, it provides some down force also.

See the wing tips? They have been changed to carbon fibre ones but notice that the design is no longer the Kansai-type. The same friend gave me those wing tips to match the carbon fibre front lips. These wing tips are meant for the GT spoiler. So, the holes are not aligned and the wing tips don't actually fit the stock holes. Well, with some ingenuity and a drill, yours truly converted it to match the spoiler. So, it's no longer a Kansai spoiler, neither is it a GT spoiler but it's a Nickie spoiler. The size of the wing tips are much bigger than the Kansai ones. I've just realised that doing 'big' things on Nickie makes 'big' differences.

Next on the list? The rear bumper needs to be lowered and a project is being hatched while we speak. Check back in a couple of weeks and see for yourself. Enjoy the grown-up Nickie pictures.
