    go to Lowe's and get a garage bottom seal for around $8.00. Rest is self-explanatory...

    i love doing "free" DIY stuff involving stuff from home depot and lowe's n such. however, whenever i do it, i feel hella embarassed and ghetto that i'm doing it lol.

    one time i made myself a homemade grill and asked one of the dudes at home depot for help finding it and he was like "what's it for? you're roof gutters??" and i just couldn't get over the embarassment of saying that it was for my car hahaha

    I did this one, too. It looks pretty good on my black car, it sort of ties in to the unpainted sideskirts. I was actually thinking about getting the Track Dog splitter, but went with this instead. It looks a little more "GT" to me.

    Ghetto is barely the word for it.

    However, your ingenuity is impressive. The pictures look decent, so who is to say something's wrong with it?
