Nice mate! Looks really tidy. I’m starting mine tomorrow 👌

I wanted mine low key, but bet yours will be a meaty one. Can't wait to see the pics.

Yours looks really nice mate, nice and low key, it really tidies the back up and makes it look complete. I’m not gonna go too bananas, I’ve got some plastic and square section metal tubing. I have an idea about some sort of bolt on frame at the back that incorporates mud flaps and diffuser together. 🤔
Managed to get out for a drive today for essentials. Man I’ve missed it!

You have wider tyres at the back than me. That definitely looks better!

I am considering a diffuser too to tidy up the back end.  Have spent sometime freshening up the Tiger so this would be a nice finish.  Does anybody have rough overall dimension width x depth as a starting point.  Thanks in advance.

The size of the one I have made in the pic was dictated by the carbon fibre type material I had left over from my dash revamp. 
I bought and added the shark fins and edge trim.
The mirrors I have changed to have also got a carbon trim on them.
I just needed to cover up that vacant space that looks grim at a distance.

A couple of people have bought them and a lot are just making up their own. I can’t imagine for one minute the diffuser I make will do anything for the aerodynamics, just want the back to look a little more complete.

Thanks guys just looking at sheet options. Did you just fit it at one angle following the spare wheel carrier tubes or bend it towards the diff along the other tubes?

Hi Steve

I’m following that spare wheel carrier down at an angle and then going to bend it up to meet the diff so the air isn’t being trapped. From what I’ve seen, others make a large panel that goes all the way under the diff and which meets the floor encasing everything.

This is about as advanced as my picture creating ability goes 🤣 but this is what I’m going to do. (Side view)...

Mine goes down the sloping spare wheel tubes and back up about 4 " up the other ones and clamped to these screwed . Also screwed through the tubes under the number plate that also holds the rear body down.
