Just got a shipment in today, the parts look excellent! I am extremely happy with the polished finish rear wing, worth every extra penny in my opinion! The 2.4 bumper is just waiting Sunday to get on it's new home, just the right amount of material, I wasn't sure if I got it where I wanted it but the flex is in all the right directions... just needs some good A-main crash tests!

The box was huge! They ship these parts like they were the Dead Sea scrolls!

I will try to get some pics up tomorrow night!

Received a few sets of body clips today.

They look great, even in the unpolished material.
I'll report back on performance after our next race.

+1 on the packaging. Each set is in its own little ziplock bag, lots of padding in a big box.

It's funny to me that the sturdiest parts on my cars comes shipped that way, but Shapeways has been at this for a while now and they know how bad it is to have your idea show up at your house in pieces!

Good luck on the installs! Remember, you can't add material once you grind it off! Take your time fitting them up, you'll be fine!

I wasn't kidding about the packaging...



And all that was in it was this...


The first shipment I recieved was more within reason as far as the size of the box goes. I guess it's just the way they do things there!

On the bright side... I've got plenty of bubble wrap now!

I'm looking forward to your report too! Thanks for the help!

I haven't ordered mine yet but I think Larry might have beat us both to the punch on the sideplates. I am about to order some new prototypes for some other ideas, just have to find the time to finish them up.

It kills me to have all these ideas and only small windows of time to get them done, and then to have to wait for manufacture and shipping... my own private torture!

I just got done finishing the wing and bumper for my Ferrari, found a red sharpie and it worked out pretty well.

Other designs in work... I'm kinda taking a week off. Bad timing though because work just asked for more hours the next few months so much of what I was planning may go on the back burner for a little while.
