Years later almost completed Viggen kit

It all started back in '03 I think when I got Kyankton's viggen wing he used for the cf molds. A couple years later I picked up a front bumper, recently, however, I scored a nice rear bumper and some not so nice side skirts. the skirts only came with one jack cover. My question is this- anyone have any tips on how I could patch over them and create "flush" skirts with no jack covers? I think this would look good and I dont plan on using the stock jack so thats not an issue. OR anyone have a good line on jack covers that are not insanely priced? Here are some pics- had to get a new tip to suit the new bumper. about my car- e85 powered GT30-71 Spec stg 3 clutch and pp fidanza crazy light flywheel. BTW huge thank you to a great guy- JZW, I am a college student who had a severe/freak stroke last year and he stepped up and helped me(well I was no help) get the car running with the new turbo and clutch setup. John and I both kinda came into the saab scene at the same time when we would wait weeks to get ecus in the mail from Jak. Now John is the top tuner this side of the world- IMO. Just a nice story to decribe a great guy and tuner.

That looks great!

Really wish I could get a hold on some old Yankton Goods.

Jack covers pop up on this forum and ebay now and then but they are 30-40 still. What about the other fender liners to cover gaps in the front and rear, brick bumper attachments? Under tray splash shields? You need those parts?

I am digging the dark green looks great.

As for the side skirts. It all depends on how brave you are. Buy a plastic welder and then cut and weld in some pieces of an old bumper or something, then give fill it with mud and get it painted. Shouldn't be too hard.
