If you're like me, you hate the way the fins are designed on the Stillen front splitter.
I've had a lot of people message me on my instagram asking me how I did mine, so here is some info to help you with yours.
This is a pretty easy project, here's what you need to get started:
In no particular order:
- Sand paper
- Measuring tape
- Cold beer
Once you're done, it will look something like this — the splitter, not the car 😜 follow me on Instagram @mike.repps if you'd like to see more.
This is what it looks like before (not my pic):
This is what it looks like after:
Just kidding 😜 who's making this happen tho? (Render by @mike.repps aka me)
Here's what it should look like:
Alright, let's get to the deets.
Measuring and cutting:
- What you want to do is tape the fins, 2 inches from the back, and gradually lower it.
- Use a hacksaw to cut the main piece off.
- Use a dremel to shave off large chunks of the plastic (see pic below), then finish it off with a sandpaper to get a nice and smooth finish. I usually put a small block of wood under the sandpaper to get a straight surface when sanding.
- Now this is important, you need to use the dremel to cut this piece off, so that the corner sits flush with the bumper!
Once it was cut, it was sent to a paint shop to have it painted gloss black. Remember to use strong screws, A LOT of them and properly attach them to the bumper. You don't want that thing flying off.
