Showstopper Front Splitter Installed
 
It is a lot more complicated to install than it looks lol. It took about 3 hrs with the help of my friends dad who works on cars a lot. But I do think it turned out great, it looks OEM :thumbup:

Looks good. I really like those wheels.

whamslam3 10-10-2010 07:53 PM

i like the subtlety of it how much was it? i would like to see that with the rest being street scene.

TaylorRyanSS 10-10-2010 08:08 PM

Thanks. It was $250.

Indpowr 10-10-2010 08:12 PM

Nice, just watch parking curbs or that will be 250 in the trash

TaylorRyanSS 10-10-2010 08:19 PM

I know. Its still hard to judge the curbs even though I have had the car for 6 months lol. I just have to park way back just to make sure.

If/When we do something we are going to back in 99% of the time...LOL

TaylorRyanSS 10-10-2010 08:25 PM

I probably should back in. I do sometimes but if I should do it all the time now so I do not wreck the splitter.

The hard part was trying to tighten the bolts that are connected to the spacer things. You have to get your hands behind the lower grille which is hard since the slits are tight. Plus there are 23 bolts total so it took a while to undo the rubber piece and bolt on the spiltter.

Buffnshine 10-10-2010 10:22 PM

well sounds more secure than the OEM

The stock rubber piece is pretty stuck on there too. It has 16 rivets and 2 bolts holding it on.

winston2ss 10-11-2010 12:52 AM

Look's great.

xRoyalFlush 10-11-2010 12:56 AM

Looks awesome, nice job! :thumbup: Where did you get the vinyl for your bowties?

TaylorRyanSS 10-11-2010 01:00 AM

Thanks.

I cut them myself. I used a sheet of the carbon fiber vinyl. You can get them off ebay precut though for like $20 for both.

Oh, yea that's what I did too, I was just wondering where you got it at, because I got a roll of carbon fiber vinyl from kragens.

TaylorRyanSS 10-11-2010 01:31 AM

Mine is the 3M Di-Noc Carbon Fiber Vinyl, it looks the most realistic out of all the CF vinyls. This one actually has a weave texture and looks pretty real.

Oh nice, the stuff I got from kragens is pretty nice too, if you click on my sig, you can see pics of the bowties.

Hey Taylor, I got my front splitter from showshopper as well. Do you think you can help me install it? I have no idea what I'm doing :P lol

Dan@showstopper 10-11-2010 10:12 AM

Looks great. I love how they look on lighter colored cars. They really pop. I have ran mine in to a couple a parking curbs, last night actually while at dinner, and they hold up surprisingly well. Your color combo is awesome. Thanks from everyone at Showstopper!!
