I'm with you on the frame rail covers/ground effects for our cars. I saw this GN a while back and I'm not sure who it belongs to, but this is the look I'm trying to achieve with my GN in regards to the frame rail covers.Very nice pics everyone.
I'll be honest, I'm very interested in the under carriage frame rail covers / trim pieces. I too have always preferred the smoothed look vs the unsightly and rusty frame rails glaring back at me. NY's solution looks perfect IMO. Both side and back.
Since we're talking about new product ideals, here's one more to the list.
How about a properly fitting, full a-pillar gauge pod? Options for single, dual and triple 2 1/16" gauges. I've run Lotek's for years, but, as others have said, they don't fit worth a dern. Looks good on the inside, but the gap on the outside of the pillar is terrible, as well as the bolt holes not lining up.
What say ye Spool?
You can dooo ittttt!!!
Am I looking at something like a ground effect kit?
I was thinking about buying a kit from Lauren Engineering, but I believe they are out of business now. It would be nice if Mike could make us something for the rails.
Ouch.Well, like I said....... Not that it looks bad.
Well, it takes a lot of work not to make it look super duper cheesy.
But I cheated a little. If you look closely below, you will see that this TR has a slim aluminum trim strip under the body roll just above the frame. I aquired these pieces years ago from a junk plain-jane Regal. I painted them black and installed them on my T. I have had them on my car for years. And when I finally got sick of looking at my frame rail, I removed these pieces and used them to secure the vinyl.
I cut, trimmed and shaped the vinyl just so. I applied a thin ridged piece of extruded aluminum to the back side of the vinyl so it wouldn't have any waves in it. I installed the vinyl so that it would slightly curve under the car and not stick strait down like a sheet of plywood. And then I reinstalled these factory moldings over the vinyl to tightly secure it.
I know all about the chrome trim strip...... Don't get me wrong. Your car looks great!
Thanks. I kinda knew you would know what and how I did it.I know all about the chrome trim strip...... Don't get me wrong. Your car looks great!
