    Well, I finally got around to starting my member journal. The journal, and the car too, of course, are both
    a constant work in progress. I think this is a good start though. What do you guys think...?

    Do you have any install pics from the splitter? I keep meaning to try to fab up one of my own, but im curious about how APR has you install it. Like where to the support rods anchor on the bumper. Do they go all the way through to the bumper beam?

    It works too! I can really feel a difference above 70mph or so. It's quite deep two, about 2 feet. So it covers a huge section
    of the underside of the front end. Then I have it custom mounted to my Rally Armor undertray/skid plate. This large flat area
    should even out airflow underneath.
