I thought it would be useful to extend the stock rear hugger a little, without going to the expense of buying an after-market unit, pretty and useful as they are.
I cut a piece out of some scrap aluminium plate I had, shaped to follow the lines of the hugger itself; rolled the edges to stiffen it and also improve its appearance; gave it a cuppla coats of quick-drying paint; [em]et - violin![/em] The aluminium plate just happens to have an embossed surface, so that livens it up a bit too.
It extends about 4½” past the OE hugger and IMHO looks alright - better in the flesh than in the pix!
It will be interesting to see if it’s at all effective, though it won’t get much of a workout any time soon, as we are now entering our dry time of year, with little or no rain normally anticipated for several months.
