vx220 clam vents

#1
there was a bodykit I saw a few years ago which I thought was suited to the vx220

I liked the front bumper especially, so when I saw this front bumper on vx220.org I knew what my next winters mod will be :roll:

I want mine to look like the pic below, I photoshop'd the above pic and widened the grill section and reduced the headlight section, much better proportions 8)

The vents would be ok if combined with ducting for brake cooling purposes but the arches will look gash :roll: They would spoil a already great car cheers..


BTW Have a search on .Org for the " Stormtropper" Vx :eek:

totally agree about the arches, they are just plain wrong :roll:

my plan is to fit a scoop behind the grill to channel the air direct to the brakes :)

I do like them, you can use something like this for proper cooling of the discs / calipers

I thought you meant these at first (I love them 8) ), in these photos they have been added without blending, hence no respray; but I think I'll wait until the stone chips get really bad then get these blended in at the same time

I'm pretty much doing the same thing. Front vents come from here
http://www.edel-car-parts.de/
They also do the top louvres but they orginated here
http://www.custommania.se/produkter.php ... 11&n2=&n3=
and I believe there will be some swedish copyright lawyers getting onto the edel place.

I also believe DT do ducts for the brake end for the cooling.
I was considering getting a second front clam so I can fit them all when I get a spare moment and still drive the old waggon. Not found one at a price I'm willing to pay so might end up as a job over xmas.
