How to make the most aerodynamic body kit

To improve appearance, improve streamlining and downforce aerodynamic body kit is designed. Homemade body kits have an exclusive appearance and help to personalize the car.

Even older model car look quite different if imposed on them in harmony with the aerodynamic shape of the car.



The most popular items aerodynamic weather-clothand - a bumper with spoiler wing, liningin the wheel arches and sills. Bumpers - the most cumbersome, time-consuming and intricate details. After completing the manufacture of aerodynamic bumper independently on the same technology can be made, and all other details weather-clotha.


From sheets of foam glue model of the futurebumper. Consider all the aerodynamic features of future parts, namely the direction of the air flow to the radiator and front brakes. In this need both thick and thin foam sheets. Cut the foam with a hacksaw or a powerful soldering iron with a shaped tip of a thin sheet. Bond the sheets with white glue.


Removing the old bumper attachment points define a new one. From 2 mm metal sheet cut new mounting bracket, drill holes in them, and prime the dye.


Cut foam form, attach a blankit to the vehicle. If you wish to modify the design. Check the attachment points of the future of the bumper. Remove the excess. Cut a hole for supplying air to the front brakes, extra recess and fog lamps.


Cut the fiberglass cloth to 5-7 cm wide strips andlength 40-50 cm. Each piece of plexiglass or spreads on the linoleum, and put on him epoxy resin. After soaking, stick on the foam shape of the bumper. Fiberglass stick in several thin layers. In one strip joints attach to another 1-1.5 cm. After the inner layer, 2-3 mm thick, route the wire mesh to reinforce the structure. Be particularly careful to strengthen the place of fastening of a bumper.


Low-fat bumper mounting bracketswelded to the reinforcement wire. Then, the wire is applied over the outer layer of glass, 6 mm thick in three layers. These layers are made very carefully, without bubbles and other blemishes. Thoroughly impregnated with epoxy fiberglass good fix brackets. The epoxy resin for impregnation of the last layer, add paint to mask scratches.


After drying and resin polymerizationsand the bumper. Perform this operation carefully. If necessary, seal the desired portions of an additional layer of fiberglass. Then draw a final sanding with fine sandpaper.


Priming Prior to painting, do not use. Staining spend using the gun or aerosol cans. Drying painted parts are made with the use of an infrared lamp (heater).
