New canards

It's winter, and the driving season for this year is still months away. So this is the time to get a couple of things done on the SLC.

One task was to install these carbon fiber canards on the car. Ed helped out and we got them installed in about 2 hours. It would be half that time for the next set, as always. :)



There were 4mm inserts at three points on each canard. Once we figured out where they looked best, three transfer punches were screwed into each canard and pressed hard into tape covering the body area. Those small divots from the transfer punches marked where we were to drill into the body. Then 4mm bolts with washers were installed from the inside of the body into the inserts in the canards. My car has the fender liners, so a long arm was required to reach in through the brake duct openings with a bolt, washer and an allen wrench.

Another view:



And a longer range side view:





These are ideal for a street car as the edges are smooth (so no slashed ankles), they follow the outline of the splitter from the top view, and they look good to my eyes. If this were an actual race car, they'd have some sort of end plates to stop air from rolling off the edges. But they are ideal for my car, which sees only street duty.

For the curious, yes the front end lift is up, which is why the wheel opening looks odd. Yes, the splitter has wear, but it's honest wear- I do drive the car!

Looks like these were originally made for the Aspira car. Anyone care to inquire about a group buy, and what’s the interest? I’d be down for hopping in for a set of the CF.

Yes, Henry @ Chiron did most of the work on the Aspira, and these are from that project.

Love the way they integrate into the existing relief in front of the wheel opening. Very nice work.

Cam, I'd be interested also for a group buy.

We will supply the canards with some short grub screws that can be used to mark the points on body to drill the holes. Few layers of tape on the body and the grub will then leave a mark in the tape so you know where to drill holes.
