Scraping Issue
When I get my blitz rally kit in december do you guys have any ideas what i could do to prevent scratches on the front bumper? Im asking cause i heard that fiberglass will crack very easily so i was thinkin maybe an air splitter. what do you guys think?

I am buying the air splitter for mine...
just try to avoid everything...
nothin can really prevent you...I know after lowering and getting the air splitter on mine, I may still scrape...
I have scraped hard on my blitz and it's fine...

its more for #2...

as far as your front bumper - no one ever looks UNDER your car - so you will never notic scratches/scrapes

when was the last time someone looked at your car with the same perspective as what is in this photo?

Linked Image

or even...

Linked Image

Most people will be looking at your car from this angle...

Linked Image

So if you have scrapes on your front bumper...

NO ONE WILL EVER NOTICE!!!!

Linked Image

Linked Image

Linked Image

... 3 years and no problems with the lower part of the front bumper thumbsup

The problems that you will have if you drive like shit will be...

the attachements inside your fender...
(ever wonder why there are no close-up shots of my driver's side fron fender wave)
