Here's the first glimpse at my first attempt at this.

Going for a mix between the new 1000 tails and idk what else.

Right now I'm doing it in cardboard to make a frame to fiberglass over.

Currently I need to do a res delete so I have room to play back there and am trying to procure the plastic subframe tray so I can have the option to go back stock if for some reason I wanted to bc I need to cut the tray to make the profile skinny.

All comments and criticism are welcome

and get the fiberglass to that!! just go and buy it, its easier to beg for forgiveness then it is to ask for permission!!

Have the exhaust come up thru the tail! Like the Ducs! Soooo sexy imo.

My question is, is the fiberglass going to be able to flex enough like the standard tail to fit on? Or will it break? Sorry if I am skeptical but even the standard tail worries me at points.

yea i know what you mean, i thought about this, i know there are fibeglass tails and such just have to keep my fingers crossed it doesnt crack.

if it does crack and not work no big deal, im still having fun just with all the fab, not like i have a whole lot to do.

and as far as the exhaust are u saying like an udertail type mod or actually modding the pipes?

thanks for the input guys keep it coming

Considering track fairings are all fiberglass, I think it will be fine.
