      I’m guessing you just put the front plate on the dash? I’d like to do the same but I also like to avoid being hassled by the man whenever possible.

      Iím gonna build a bracket they comes out from the center grille opening and come up with a way to attach it there. I didnít run one on my P2 XC and never got bugged about it once. I donít drive like an ass though, so I donít know if it has to do with that.

      Why not come from down below somehow? That way no air blockage. Canít remember: do p80s have tow hook where you could do a mount there?

      Yeah, I wasnít clear. Lower bumper center grill area. Thereís a row of screws the hold the cover to the backbar. Itíll make sense once I make it.

      A little at home spoiler mod CAD work. My idea is to make an 850R style spoiler for the wagon.

      My gawd! The shade tree mechanical skill that I possess are a kernel of corn on the dinner plate of your aptitude.

      Do you believe it will actually provide some down force as the original 850r did on the sedan.

      Also, I'll take that exhaust jig off your hands if you're just going to scrap it



      I really want an exhaust set up like yours.

      Iíd like to think itíll provide some amount of extra downforce. Itíll be slightly kicked up as well. Iím not interested in going through any sort of effort to quantify it though. Iím just interested in the look.

      Fixture isnít going anywhere. Iíll still want to build something for my XC and at least a few more after that. Just need to figure out how to make it cost effective.

      I was going to glue it on and then mold it in, but it was recommended that maybe I make a mold of the extension piece first so someone could just glue that part on?

      Yes, because it looks cool and some people might like to enhance their wangs.

      Im sure you dont need any more ideas for things to build but once upon a time volvo offered extra pieces for the front air dam and bumper on 00 R's that go in the corners of the bumper and had naca ducts to supply air to the brakes......I would be ecstatic to see something along those lines fabbed up

      Yea like under bumper aero stuff. Not a splitter per say...I have a picture somewhere but it may be hard to find. Basically it was a pair of inserts that bridged the bumper to air dam area underneath behind the fogs. I remember them having a naca duct too but that may have been the c30 P* I was looking at the bottom of recently.
