Some more updates of my custom BA bodykit that is taking FAR too long.

Yesterday Thanatos was able to come around and help me out with the side
skirts, i'd been waiting for exams to be over to hack these up and finally the
time had come. After the first skirt took maybe 45mins to an hour, then second took about 15 mins... and thus we were done.
I was expecting the side skirts to require more modifications then what we
actually did. For those interested there is no screws/rivets/clips or ANYTHING
holding the skirts to the car. They simply slide under the door and latch onto
the door sill, hold on very strong and i'm impressed.
Rear bar has been modified a tad more to make it sit flat which i'm not happy with.
Yes the car needs a clean, i *will* do it when i spray the parts for final installation.

a Major problem i had with the rear bar was the exhaust tip exited in the
wrong place. After a long time trying to work out how to make the exhaust
work, i found out today where my long time exhaust leak was. To put it
simple, the complete rear section of the exhaust *fell* off today, so i'm
currently running around with the exhaust exiting under the back seat, its
loud... but i don't have to worry about the rear bar :)

I use the tow bar so it had to stay.
if i could have removed it i would have done so straight away as it would have made the rear bar SOOOOOOOOOO much easier to make.
