do u like the looks of the prototype?
I LOVE the idea of shaping them to fit with the mudguards. However I'm not a fan of the edge design on the prototypes, how they are essentially an "L". I like a much simpler design, where it would just be a flat piece of material that would subtly stick out from the underside of the side skirt. Again, formed to the mudguard, and fit for a sedan as well.

But, that's my input. I know that lowpro aero makes a similar product for our car. They are made out of a black ABS (which is fine by me), cut to length for either the sedan or coupe. But they don't made a set that is made to work with the mudguards, so I would have to do some custom shaping in order to get them to fit with my set up.

I think 1.5 inches is a good length. Enough to be noticed, while not too much to the point where it is obnoxious or looks ridiculous.

You planning on running any intro specials, maybe a group buy at a discounted price if there are enough people who sign up?

Did you consider making them out of something like an ABS? I'm just curious because I don't know what the price difference would be for making them out of plastic instead of metal.

Is the metal going to be coated somehow (painted, powder-coated, anodized)?

raw aluminum,keeps cost down u guys can paint whatever color u like
OK.

For those interested in painting them yourself you should invest in a self-etching primer, your color, and then possibly a clear coat to help protect the color layer. At least that will by my plan of attack.
