Oem gfx front splitter removal for replacement carbon fiber guide or help

So, I just got this carbon fiber splitter exactly like the one in the GM oem ground effects to replace the one I have now. I was going to repaint the one I have now again to gloss black because the shop that I took it to before didnít sand down the yellow paint and just painted over it (yes, that happened lol. I can tell because it flakes off at some parts and rock chips show the yellow again.) and got the carbon fiber exact version. My problem here is will it be an easy install?? I see have to drill holes on the carbon fiber piece and Iím also not sure if the GM gfx splitter has clips or such on the splitter itís self that attaches to the bumper. Ive seen this installation that there is a piece installed onto the bumper itís self as well. Wondering if something on the carbon fiber piece needs to be there as week. If so then are those pieces removable and able to be transferred onto the new carbon fiber piece? I know the oem splitter has 3M double sided tape on both sides and iíll have to do that for my carbon fiber piece. Just wondering if anyone has installed a carbon fiber oem gfx style and has advice.

If your new splitter is exactly like the factory splitter than it may go on the same way. Early gfx kits installed with two brackets on the sides, two sided tape and a couple of rivets. GM revised it to have the plastic brackets that rivet to the bumper and the splitter snaps into the brackets. Getting it on is a pain. Even getting the old one off may be hard. These kits were dealer or owner installed, so it could be any combination of things.

Iím not sure if the gfx oem splitter j have now is the early version or. I do see the double sided tape on both sides of the splitter. I had my friend that works at the chevrolet dealership install the whole kit. I guess iíll find out about the front splitter. There arenít any rivets or brackets on the carbon fiber splitter. So Iím hoping I can transfer over the pieces for so

If you don't have the brackets on your car, maybe your friend at the dealership can get you the kit. If not, try to use some pop rivets in addition to some two sided tape on your new splitter. Tape alone will probably fail in time, especially at speed. Also, try and save your old one in case you damage your new one someday.
