Stillen front splitter V6

My Stillen front splitter arrived today. I plan to remove the stock adhesive tape and replace it with 3M. Many are having difficulty in keeping the stock tape sticking to the Camaro.

Thank - you James.

I will be taking the front bumper off in mid-March to complete the install. This way my Camaro will be ready to hit the road when the we are salt free again in April. I will post more photos when I start that piece of the project. For now here are some photos of the splitter as it sits in the basement.

^^You can buy direct from Stillen. They make it, I would assume they'd have the least markup.

Can you scan and post the install instructions please? Im considering this splitter, but want to know what damage it will do to my car if / when I ever decide to take it off. It would be nice to not drill holes or have something rub through the clear coat on the front bumper.

+1000 on taking off the tape that comes on it. I am now in the process of having them removed and re-installed by the body shop because the tape that came on it & the rear spoiler isn't holding & they're peeling up now.

Dragging this up from the dead..but you did the install without removing the bumper? Pretty easy that way?

many people have done it that way. They just pick it up and jacks and worked from there. Or it takes maybe 40 mins at most to take the front bumper off.

For those asking about the extras I added to help retain the splitter here are some more photos.

First one shows the stock screw in the middle and the screw I used on the right.

Second photo shows where I added even larger screws for extra support and retention.

Third shows where I used black silicone to seal off the splitter to the Camaro.
