Nicely done. Gotta check this out in person. Never can have enough front downforce. My bumper gap is starting to stretch from the downforce created from my lip at trackdays. Love the idea of how the splitter mounted to the frame.

looks great. you should actually use some countersunk flush style allen bolts to mount the aluminum sheet to the steel frame. rivets arent as strong as you think. you could tap the frame and countersink the sheet and bolt it together.

I was thinking of doing that but too lazy to tap so many holes lol. Maybe I'll do a few on the more stressed areas for more peace of mind. Where is a good place to find those screws?

I think I have a countersinking bit that would work, I could have brought it last night. I remember it not being cheap. Or if you are careful you can use another bit of larger diameter to create the sink but it depends on how thick the aluminum is. In any case that splitter looked sick, I need one!

They do come in black (gloss/matte) finishes but it'll get scratched up so fast anyways. That is the same material I used for my CarPC enclosure.

Don't really care much for the colour. Can paint the top black I guess for a cleaner look.

Haven't weighed it yet but if I were to guess it's probably 40-50lb. It's kind of heavy but strong enough to have me stand on it and possibly 2 people on it at once.
