    Re: whos interested in buying a custom splitter

    i like it, count me in.
    btw, how did it perform ot the track, could you feel
    the downforce in the front, did it seem more, "planted"?

    also, would you please post a few more well lit detailed shots ???
    i can see it well in the pictures, but some zoomed in photos, and
    possibly dissasembled as well, if you don't mind to terribly???

    do you have an ebay account? if not, may i suggest you open one
    asap, and be ready to see you product in lights, & some paypal $$$$

    this isn't a one piece is it?

    any idea how much you'd want for one?

    can you color match it to the silver?

    Re: whos interested in buying a custom splitter

    no this particular splitter is not one piece but like i mentioned earlier a lil body filler in the seams and you'll never know !! also i do not plan on painting anything! thats something i would leave up to the buyer, i may do them in black but all depends on what ya want! this design has multiple possibilities! i can make them with the rear fender flare uprights or without! i feel some might not like the full race look so this is why i will offer in at least 2 different versions. street and race. the street version will be only the splitter itself and will be about 2" shorter on each side as not to stick out the side of the bumper. also those that may want the race version may have to do a lil fab work themselves. i do not want to make a part that perfectly fits my front end and then have ppl yelling at me wondering why it doesnt fit thiers. my thoughts are i will send the main splitter fully cut to size then send the side pieces separately. i will cut them to my patterns but will leave plenty extra for trimming and proper fit. im very knowledgable of yesterdays hot rods and muscle cars where nothing you buy fits so i do not want this to go on for you guys. i am no shop or anything im just a dude with a garage and an idea.

    also i did not ever have a problem with any kind of understeer at the track and several times i came into some turns very hot. so i would say that yes it definately works! also my splitter sticks out from the front approximatly 2 5/8" if anyone wants more or less than that i can make it any size.

    Your best bet. This one is the real deal. See "custom application". D3 Cadillac had an APR on their V1 track car.

    Re: whos interested in buying a custom splitter

    I'm very interested in either doing this myself or going with APR. If I get time, I'll give them a call soon but I just emailed APR about having a template on hand from the D3 application. If so, they should be able to take orders, I'd think. If not, they recommend using cardboard and tracing, I believe, for any custom application. I mentioned a group buy to them as well.

    Any reason for wanting two piece instead of one? I assumed one piece would be less subject to flex & breakage.

    If I got an APR one, it'd likely be CF but, if I made one at home, I'm not sure cored CF is a realistic price option. Any thoughts on other materials? I've seen aluminum fall apart too easily...

    Re: whos interested in buying a custom splitter

    Get a large piece of cardboard and trace the front lower bumper area. Then get some 1/8" ABS plastic, lay the cardboard template on the ABS, extend out as you see fit, then cut with shears. Heat gun or strong hair dryer can help mold areas that need help. Secure with self tapping screws, etc. I've done it on a couple cars. The ABS isn't heavy, CF is gross overkill and costly, and if you practice a bit, you'll be able to shape the visible portion to look pretty nice.
