Default Rear valance

If you see this let me know what you think. STERLING CCC #309-image.jpg
This the rear valance from a Scion FRS.

Would look good if it wasn't that wide.

I like it, just needs some trimming.

Is it plastic?

I'd just use the black portion - it works.

Default Rear valance

I will be attempting to shorten and fit to the Sterling tail. I have thought about only the black part, but I think I need some of the FRS to get the fit correct. Will need to relocate exhaust exits and fill voids. Will be adding vent mesh to assist with heat dissipation. Have external oil filter and electric cooler hidden on right side of engine compartment. May also use part of the original Sterling license plate trim. Will continue to attempt to post pictures as I proceed.
Because I have limited fiberglass skills I will not be making a part from a mold, but will "cut and past" as best I can.

I like it! Good time to flare in the rear fenders to match up the valance.

This looks awesome. How are you planning on joining it to existing fiberglass? Taking a mold of it and making a fiberglass part would have been ideal.

The part is urethane and will be installed with California skyhooks, along with screws and kitty hair.
I will be incorporating an existing modified black Sterling license plate section along with black metal mesh to complete the look I am hoping to achieve. Subtlety moving from the "70's" toward today.

What are the thoughts regarding the spoiler louvre panel above ?
