Thanks! If I had the proper tools I might consider it. I made this out of 16GA sheet steel that I had left over from smoothing my firewall. Used only an electric 4" grinder with a cut off wheel to make all my cuts. Would have been a lot easier if I had access to a shear, brake and notcher lol. I only made it 3-1/2" vertical in height and the splitter plate projects out 3-3/4". I initially had it taller, but shortened it as my driveway is kinda steep at the bottom and I'd hate to rip it off before I even made it onto the road - not to mention it looks more proportioned this way.:thumbsup: Debating now whether to go with stainless steel adjustable support arms or not.How tall is that....looks great :beers:
You might want to make a few more :yes: hint hint
Hummm good thought - good thing I made it bolt on lol. One thought I had is that if I hit a small animal - the splitter would slice and dice the little bugger......if I kept it on maybe I should change my car to project roadkill???lMy concern would be lack lack of flexibility if you hit something with the spoiler.
The oem plastic one give but a steel one bolted in place would tend to tear up body panels.
I looks like it bolts to the lower valance and the lower front fender extensions.Hummm good thought - good thing I made it bolt on lol.

That really isn't an option unless you omited the the splitter. Finally got gas last nite for the welder. Before I welded the splitter on, the entire spoiler had flex - once welded it is a ridgid beast!If you can make a spoiler from a lighter gauge than the part it is bolted to the spoiler could become the sacrificial part if it was hit. I have crashed a couple lighter metal spoilers with no car body damage.
It looks nice. It's similar to mine. I don't have a great pic but you can sorta see it here. Since I'm not so great with the welder I had someone fab it up for me.]
Really nice looking car! Yours is the same concept - I agree. Do you get any wind noise or chatter from that design? That was one of my worries
