I've tested it and removal is a pain to say the least.

I looked at the colgan and they are very open in the front. Want more protection. Buddy of mine from Ohio Speed sent me this link and I bought it. Looks like this will work for my splitter and the way it attaches seems good and best of all he said it will be here by Friday here's the link to it

If it works for you that's all that matters, that being said I wouldn't put that my SS.

Things I don't like about it, it doesn't cover areas I would want covered, looks ugly, for the same money you can buy a Colgan bra and I'm not sure the materials the cover is made of might not harm the paint, especially in long drives.

As I said, if it works for you that's all that matters. JMO

I hope it does what you were hoping.

Personally, that actually covers a lot less painted area. The colgan is open only over the plastic grilles, which is a good thing for air flow. Colgan will also withstand much more damage. One decent sized rock hitting that one you selected is gonna leave a mark.

Just my $.02

I used to drive my Camaro back and forth from OKC to KC weekly for a couple years.I used a Colgan bra w/mirror covers.I only left it on for the trip itself,cleaning it often.I would hang it from our basketball goal to spray it when I washed my car.It was quick and easy to put on and take off.No longer needed,no long trips and it no longer fits because of my body kit.
I plan to sell it(fits V6).

the Colgan works great, here's a pic of my stock fitment. but since you have a splitter, you might need to order something custom fitted.
