Like anything else....taste is subjective.(I think we've learned that from this thread alone) Execution is also key in any build. The truck looks great, a lot of hard work has really paid off. While I'm not a fanboi of the aero kit, it really looks fantastic. A 4.8is with aggressive wheels, Imola Red paint, Dinan goodies....and now the aero kit, VERY well put together IMO. Not sure what's left to add.....maybe supercharger?

I just hope the new stereo doesn't rattle those panels off....but that's another thread all together.

You can have it good, fast or cheap but you can only pick two.

Actually, you can only pick one.

If it's good, it won't be fast or cheap.

If it's fast, it won't be good or cheap.

If it's cheap it won't be good or fast.

Actually this is how it works--

If you want it good and fast it won't be cheap.
If you want it good and cheap it won't be fast.
If you want it fast and cheap it won't be good.

Tape on the body and plastic rivets in the wheel arches. This kit uses LOTS of tape. I went through 3+ rolls of 15ft. Still have to put the side step pieces on the rockers which will be at least another 10ft.

How tight does it sit on the body if you're using tape....granted tape comes in various thickness but surely there must be a uber micro gap. Any concern about water or dirt or both making it's way in whatever mini-reveal, microgap that does exist ?

AND or is the PPF the driving force to address it ?

That exposed micro-gap even with a complete tape line millimeters below it would leave me restless ?

Nah. Those double side tape is viscous. Solvent's may soften it but it still has a viscous hold
