    I did this today, thanks for the idea.
    Glued all the way along plus screws and washers every 6 inches.

    I always say... if you're not going to do it right, don't do it at all. This would be the perfect example. I personally woudln't risk damaging my bumper drilling into it.. to do a ghetto mod like this one. But I guess, it's your car.. do what you want. I just look at it as a 25 thousand dollar car, and putting 8 dollar weather seal on it just does not make sense. Not dissing on the creativity, but it's just not very fitting for a higher class vehicle.

    I think it looks good boosted nice car, it might look better if you were to paint it gloss black. I might look at doing this after I get done all my DIY engine mods I am working on

    im in the stage in fiberglassing it and making a mold at the shop..maybe ill release a full blown fiberglass version with stock mounting locations. Since some of is dont have sti's and what not those splitters it should be fitting without it. Im planning on making 2 versions...one with a curve in the center to contour with the bumper and one that is straight all across.
