Nice. Are you going to retain the oe slats? I kind of like the more open double slat look it looks a little more modern. The ones I got are 2 piece likenthe originals so you could buy a set of cheap double slats and still use your seibon surround piece on them. 🤷‍♂️

Where did you get the double slat grills? I thought I liked the OEM single slats, but looking at your car and @specialized2010's car - the double slat looks pretty good!

Yeah...Keep heading north on 28 until 422, you will hit Kittanning.

All of our Marcellus/Utica acreage is in Armstrong and Butler. In fact, our gas wells run under the Allegheny and some sections of 28.

Oh baby. The diablo is up there in probably my top 10 favorite cars of all time. They are just so preposterous. Wide, low, loud, dramatic, impractical. Everything a proper Italian supercar should be.

You’re killing me with these diablo GTR pics. I normally wouldn’t do yellow on any car but that yellow diablo GTR would work for me. Big time. 🤤

I’m about 95% sure I got my double slats with the carbon surround off aliexpress. Just have a careful look at the various sellers. On that site price isn’t always an indicator of quality and some will have really obvious fake carbon (like printed carbon look vinyl) and some will be real carbon (well at least 1 layer of carbon).

The plastic on the clips of mine was a bit crappy and one clip looked like it had already been broken and glued back together when I got them but otherwise I’m happy with them. The slats are the right shape/angle (some look weird) and the right gloss black and the carbon surround is subtle but nice. I think they were something like $80 for the pair. If you do want to buy some let me know and I can trawl back through email to find the seller I got them off.
