    MescalVto bought one from Specter Werkes. I think it was a one off, though.

    Specter Werkes is a company that used to make some body modifications for the 2004-2007 CTS-V.
    One of which was this splitter/lip.

    But Specter Werkes was bought by Lingenfelter a while back and I don't think they are making them anymore.

    I don't know of anyone currently selling a front splitter or lip for the first gen CTS-V.

    I haven't researched it myself, but I haven't heard of anyone on here talking about it.

    ehh, a start. not all good, but some basic lips that probably could be bought of any bodykit website. universal front splitter type stuff. although the black lip on the white v bumper looks like it may be a little more tailored. that blows that companies are dropping the 1st gens from their offerings.

    Wonder how hard it would be to just make your own out of plastic and lay with carbon fiber

    If it's a legit product, it's priced decently. If someone buys one and posts some pics, I'd consider getting one as well.

    Unless laying up composites is a regular hobby of yours or something you have lots of experience with, it'd be more trouble than it's worth most likely..

    I've considered this, but what I would like to have is a replacement of the under engine tray, that extends out past the front edge of the bumper and also acts as a front air splitter

    this would require removing the rubber "driveway scraper" and maybe making use of its brackets

    I would also like to see two of those threaded barrel adjuster braces on it...

    but do I have any experience with making molds and laying fiberglass or carbon fiber... or ABS plastic... no, I do not.

    Re: Add on lip?

    Pouring a composite or ABS is not gonna be easy for many of us but to create it in another form such as acrylic or carbon fiber that is not out of the question....From what experiance i do have and it is more than the adverage person i think that i will start with this method considering i have a yard of raw carbon fiber on the shelf for a few years now...
    Lay the bumper out on a large paper cardboard and create a template after removing the rubber scraper from the bottom. Then trace that on to a sheet of 1/4" alumacore or 1/4" marine ply then coat it with a fiberglass resin to seal it and then paint flat black then apply a layer of geniune carbon fiber and trim to fit to the edge and coat with bar top gloss. Then spray the bottom of the piece with bed linner material to that rocks are not an issue with scuffs.

    Attachment will be in the same location as the rubber scraper and a yet to be determined bracket for the top.

    This should work on both the V and Non V bumpers....

    This is just the chalkboard design any extra input is helpful and welcomed as I will not get started on this project build for probably a few weeks.
