    Bill,

    Our group just started with a DFW-area get together lunch one month. Several of us wanted to meet again and we just organized them monthly. In time, those meet-ups led to cruises, car shows, and even a 3,600 mile caravan to Norm’s Show & Shine 3 in Delaware. The meetups for install help haven’t been as widely publicized, but we’re always willing to help anyone in our area.

    There is a Southeast owners sub-forum on SRF: https://www.stingrayforums.com/forum...ingray-owners/. You can always start a post there for Orlando-area members to gauge their interest in getting together. I bet there are several SRF members in your area interested in that and even helping each other out from time to time.

    I just installed the ACS rear diffusers last night too,
    I got the 4 fins.
    The driver side was a pain the ass!
    Otherwise pleased with the final result.
    If you’re thinking of doing it, definitely need a 7mm flat ratchet. Otherwise it’s impossible...

    shihhanchow, Fins look good, though you might want to clean your outside pipes.

    in Hindsight, when I originally added the fins a few years ago it was somewhat tedious, fast forward, knowing what I know now, I would have just dropped the lower fascia and installed the fins and then reinstall the lower fascia.

    The lower fascia removal is quite easy and if there was a race with a prize for the quickest to install the fins by removing the fascia or leaving the fascia on, I would place my bet that removing the fascia would be much faster.

    Steps: You remove rear reflectors, remove about six main screws, remove underneath screws, pull fascia off, place on bench, line template, drill holes, bolt fins on, snap fascia back, put screws back in and snap reflectors back in place and done!

    I say this from experience of installing with fascia on and also removing the fascia to replace it. However, you don't know what you don't know until you actually do it or experience it.

    Wow those look great. Where did you buy them from? I'm tempted to look into this.
