  • How To: (VIDEO) Build A Rear Diffuser For Under $100

    🔴UPDATE: 11 December 2016
    🔴Part 2 is now posted. In the second video, I show how to add fiberglass and bed liner to your diffuser.

    This video explains how I built my own rear diffuser out of foam board & fiberglass. There are other DIY diffusers out there, but I have never seen any like this. This is 100% my own idea & design. I know it's not the nicest out there, but for under $100, its a fun, easy, DIY option. Mine has been on my car for 2.5 years now & is holding up just fine.


    Feel free to ask any questions you may have. I will be making a video in the future showing the fiberglass & bed liner processes, but if you've ever used either before, you could probably figure it out easy enough.


    NOTE: The diffuser tucks under my bumper. The black you see on the outside is plastidip I sprayed on to mimic the "Mature" style of diffuser seen here.http://www.forcewerkz.com/2002-2007-...-carbon-fiber/


    🔴TIME TO COMPLETE: About 3 hours to build. It could take much more to figure out the angles, how to trim it, & how to mount it.

    The first time I did this project it took me about 20-30 hours total to complete. However, a large majority of that time was spent figuring out how to make my idea work. I have never seen a diffuser like this, so it was completely new to me & I was creating the process as I went.
