Default STi side splitters install

Hey guys I just repainted my side splitters, and I can't remember how to reinstall. I'm pretty sure I've got the brackets right, but where does this plastic piece at the bottom of the picture go?

I may have missed a post, but I didn't see anything regarding that piece. Seems like most of the posts were people installing the splitters on WRXes or wagons. I'm just trying to reinstall on my STi, so I don't need to cut tabs or clips or anything, I just can't figure out how that plastic piece fits in the equation with the two metal brackets??

line up inner bracket

secure with hardware

Well, with a little bit of ingenuity and about $3 in fasteners from the bin at Lowe's, my splitters are on and very secure. I never did figure out where that plastic piece goes, but it's plenty tight, even without it.

your bumper should be cut/drilled on the side for the splitters. After that, just pop the pieces in, go under it, put the bolts in and youre done
