All these foci times kill me.

That is very good looking! Perhaps I can help a bit. What is your clearance from the most forward/lowest edge to the ground. You want it to be a minimum of 5 inches ( ask that you just trust me on this. I did quite extensive studies in this regard). If 5 " or less. then you want to attach a skid plate on the underside of the outer most splitter bits. 1/16" aluminum or rubber (aluminum preferred). Attach it (important!!!!) with "GOOP" (why goop? Because goop even after it is fully cured will still come off with gentle rubbing. But it holds like the bees knees!). The plate will add strength to a critical area. Expect to replace the plate every year or two (my front air dam, I completely ground down the side screws, and my front splitter is totally scared underneath). That really does look fantastic. Be vary wary of the McDonalds in St. James, MO. if you get down that way.

Anyone interested in a St. Louis Region Meet? Maybe dinner and a movie or something?
