i know this may not work but since lexan melts a bit maybe they melted pieces together to make the differant shapes stick out. this probably wont work but it was just a suggestion.

sorry about this i just had a real good look at the first picture the one of the front of the car and just above the SPIKE sticker and below the front intercooler you can see 3 small rivet/screws. there is also one just above the wheel or the arch. and on the third picture there is 2 screws on top of the front arch so this must be how they done it. these could be like the screws that hold on the spoiler to most cars. so they must have cut out spare lexan and screwed it on to the bits.
