    They took the rubber wicker off and then trimmed the little strip off the bottom of the cover so it would mount flush. They used the existing holes in the cover from the wicker and fabbed up mounts on the frame. They pulled the whole bumper off and made a plate for the supports on the underside of the cover. Its mounted up pretty solid. We'll see how it holds up...

    I hope it does. Supposedly those splitters see hundreds of pounds of force, which is going to be directed into the supporting structure. If you can't stand on it, I wouldn't drive with it.

    Did you provide measurements to APR to make the splitter?

    I had planned on sending a cardboard template to them at some point. D3 and Sean Southland have already had them done and now Sean@TrinityTEK has them for sale on eBay so I picked it up. Apparently they fit both the V1 and V2...

    This is a truly spectacular build. I love it.

    Have you done anything more to the engine?
