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.

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

CD-001-FA looks pretty nice anyone ever try one? Hell not even sure if they even have them as you need to call.

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.

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.

right, but I'm thinking it would be better to have one that replaces the under engine tray.. it has mounting holes and some features on more than one plane. it would require a mold with provisions to replace the driveway scraper

I see it as a project for someone who owns a V and knows how to work with carbon fiber or ABS plastic.

those products mount to the bottom of the bumper and it would be less secure than one that secures to the crossmember

I would go with a custom splitter. If I do aero stuff later I will most likely just get a custom front splitter made up. Here is a quick photoshop I did of my car with what I would want done.

Absolutely, I want to be able to do 360s without spinning the tires!

haha, seriously though it was just a quick photoshop, I wanted to see what my car would look like lowered on some wheels with a front lip. I couldn't be bothered to try and fix the rear wheel angle. :)

That's not bad at all, I actually really dig that. Was it difficult to install?

Not too bad, got rid of the rubber wicker and removed the mounts so it lays flat against the underside of the bumper cover. Most of the fab was reinforcing where the support rods connect since it regularly sees 140+ and I wanted to make sure it would hold up. We actually removed the front cover to mount it all up. But according to the directions its not necessary but I wanted overkill for the track...
