    Does my bum look big in this??

    Ok - its question time again

    Would an Sri-turbo rear skirt look ok/nice/cool on a coupe??

    Has anyone done it? - if any pics??

    all comments are welcome.



    p.s

    Maybe could someone do a photoshop for me/us just so we can get the idea?

    it'd look great but would need to be a total custom job at the sides to make it curve round more and extended a bit.

    I'd love a black coupe with a gsi front and a custom rear with the sri-T valance moulded in somehow. would def look cool

    I though about this because - like i others i think the rear of the coupe sits a little too high however the other rear pieces will make too low unless you change all the skirts and stuff.

    The way i see it it'll just bolster out the rear a little - sitting at a similar level to the irmscher rear skirt pieces but going across the full width of the rear. - I'm gonna be having a twin pipe exhaust too so hopefully will be able to fit the extension in such a way that the gap is big enough to accept it.

    what do you all reckon?

    Looots of work there - the mid-section of the coupe rear sits higher and rises - so all the mid supports for the sri-t kit will need extending and blending - its alot to go wrong esecially when the sri-t kit isnt exactly cheap to keep fiddling with.
