    It looks like the dark black piece is the sheetmetal that surrounds the radiator. I don't think you have a front valance.

    Nope, No Valance. The place you bought your spoiler has them as well. Call em back and tell em you need the valance that goes with your spoiler.

    If you look closely at the white coupe in the thread, you'll see that they have hung the front spoiler without a valance. Appears to have some sort of rod coming off the bumper rebar to support it out in the middle.

    Cool. Too much stuff on such a tiny car looks cluttered, though. If he lost the rear wing and side scoops, filled in the side marker lights and added MUCH wider wheels and tires, the car would look perfect.
    My coupe is also slated to receive that same Shelby fiberglass front apron, I love that thing.

    Fi you want to photo chop a bit, try just putting a different set of rims on the original pic.
    I think those rims just don't suit that car.

    Some 10" wide Weld convoluted (Pro-stars, I think they're called?) would look killer.
