Default A little project I've been working on. 10+ Roush sideskirt splitters on 05-09

So after seeing the Roush sideskirt splitters on the 10+ mustangs I wanted to put them on my 08 GT500. I am planning on having the sideskirts painted body color and with the air ride I wanted something to protect the bottoms of them. The Roush side splitters were the perfect solution but they do not make them for the 05-09s so I picked up a set and am in the process of modifying them to fit my 08 Here is the progess I've made so far.

First off, I had to cut all the "bumps" off that recess in the 10+. In the 08s these will need to sit flush. Since I cut out the bumps I bought 2in washers from Lowes to all me to use the supplied push pins when time comes to install them. The holes all line up with the 05-09s. I didn't want the splitters to be plain black plastic so I went with Zportas suggestion and picked up some 3m carbon fiber dinoc. Todays job was putting the dinoc on the splitters. I finished it earlier this afternoon. Now I just need to find some free time to finish up the install. Pics of the progess so far...

How much were the parts? This is exactly what I want to do because I have the carbon fiber sides, and lip, and want the sides to have that same flat bottom. Looks amazing so far.

I picked up the splitters from American Muscle. I think they are 175 before any discount codes and the 3m dinoc ran me about $36 on ebay.

thanks guys. I will try to finish the install by the weekend.

Wow, this was a pain. The pushpins were too short to go thru the splitter, washer, and secure into the body. I tried a few different techniques and nothing would work. I have about $225 invested in the project so rather than just toss them I said F it and just mounted them with 3m two sided tape. I used two jacks to hold them in place and then apply pressure. To my surprise they held really really well. The tape has a good bond and they are snug. It started getting dark so I put it back in the garage. I think I'm going to use 3 self tapping screws just for peace of mind. I don't want them flapping around and flying off while cruising down the interstate. I'll put one screw at each end and one in the middle. I hate to half *** it but I got frustrated and ran out of options. On to the pics, it got dark on me...
