Does anyone know if there is a rear diffuser available for the BF ute?
i friggin love the look of the F430 rear bar and think something similar would be horn on my ute, would have to change the exhaust outlet of a*** from its current setup.
although at the moment, im thinking it would just end up being a major custom job well not worth the money....anyway...if anyone has seen something?

I was under my ute the other day and thought the same thing.

A magazine did one in a comondore a while ago, I will see if I can find it. and there was another one for a miata. This was just a bumper chop to reduce drag, something ute would benefit from given there flat floor.

at first glance(on a x-series, principles the same). The spare needs to go then you have a nice flat bottom. Diffusers should angle upwards towards the back of the car so the rear bumper will probably need a chop.

Have a look here, they have some ready made diffusers maybe one would be similair shape and size.

Would look real hardcore

have a look where???? :?: :?: :o
i was also thinking of going flat for the whole under side of the car, like 1mm sheet metal with vents situated in places required for heat removal and breathing. dont know if this would have any real benefit. would help for long cruising for sure as far as drag co-efficiency goes? i can get this stuff manufactured for cheap with the gf's parents owning an engineering co so its certainly economically viable!! maybe fiend would have a few ideas on this??

Haha now that would be cool,a full panel up with louvers in it, maybe even have 2 or 3 slits wide running down parallel along a duel exhaust system, and maybe some sort of shape coming out t the front under the trans and engine, all colour coded, get the under body looking better than the rest of it.
