Car Bra and Ground Effects Package

I have a '12 SS Vert with the ground effects package wind-splitter in the front. I emailed Colgan Custom and Global Orders (Colgan and LeBra) asking if the standard part no. for my model would fit with that wind-splitter. Got one reply (Global Orders owns both?) that neither will work. Suggested www.wardlowbras.net which said they would do it for $525 but need the car for 2 days. Considering I'm in Pittsburgh and they're on the left coast - not an option. Also tried www.carbra.com/au - (I know - Australia but couldn't find anyplace else) - no gots. Anybody have any suggestions besides the "clear bra?"

Don't know if it fits ground effects but maybe one of these? http://www.rpidesigns.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=1780

My clear bra guy did it by hand to make it fit. He's out in Monroeville if you're up for the drive.

When I had my 2013 ZL1 vert done, the installed said to cover the front splitter itself would cost another $200 but since it isn't painted anyway, there wasn't much point it covering it, so I had the front facia done along with the gills and the mirrors, but not the front splitter.

Slick Rick - thanks - messaged them and waiting for reply
Swacer - thank you too. I'm up for the drive - where's the place? All that's below your comment is a red X (#$&*% windows!)
HDRDTD - you're talking clear bra, right? Right now I'm interested in an external fabric bra - have seen mixed comments about the "appearance" of a clear bra

I picked up a Colgan because it was significantly cheaper than a clear bra and it doesn't need to be on the car all of the time. But in your case a clear bra may be the only way to go.

I'll send you a PM, and I don't know why you can't see my signature.
