There are no hardware other than the two metal supports, that come with the windsplitter. You can get the nuts and bolts at your local hardware store for less than a buck. I used 7, 1/4 screws.

First I masked the entire surface with masking tape which allowed me to draw on the windsplitter. If you're not cutting it then place your front bumper on top of it and mark the outline of the front bumper. Then drill the holes evenly on the windsplitter. Align the windsplitter with your front bumper and mark the holes on the bumper. Drill the holes and attach the splitter. Find a good spot for your supports and drill those 4 holes. Attach the supports to the splitter and the bumper.

It can't be predrilled because everyone's front bumper maybe different

Yes. The GT300 left his uncut. I cut mine according to the lines of my TRD front bumper. I also trimmed the back so that I can access the screws that are attached to the underbody plastics. It is a lot more work but i think it is a cleaner install. Plus, it is much lighter. And I have extra carbon fibers to make little parts such as canards, wing endcaps, etc. thumbsup

Exactly. Plus if you have the whole piece where it doesn't belong you get to much drag and the lip will be harder to adjust up and down. I used drive rust proor drive in screws rather then bolts since they are rounder in head size and do not stick out downward ar much. Since their are so many dips in S.D.. Something to think about if you car is lowered is shaving down the screws/bolts that hang down below the bumper or it'll scrape really bad if your car is dumped. Their's many ways to install it all depends on the bumper you have as well.

Layout the Carbon Fiber sheet below the bumper or make a sketch of how you want it to look. Use a dremel or cutting tool to carve out the Carbon Fiber. Pre-drill areas under the bumper and mark the areas on the Carbon Fiber piece that has been cut before anchoring up onto the bumper. Make sure everything is secure and your done! Test it on the freeway see if everything is working properly. thumbsup
