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

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.

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

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.

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.

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!!
