Windsplitters...where?
I remember seeing a few decent sites selling windsplitter's but I lost all my favorites and I havent been able to find any of the sites. I know ECelica sells a carbon fiber one but I dont really need to spend the extra $$ for carbon because I want it for looks but mainly to add a little protection for the bottom of my bumper. So if anyone can recommend any sites it would be helpful.

as for 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?

or even...

Linked Image

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

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

NO ONE WILL EVER NOTICE!!!!

... 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)

If you don't care about the looks of Carbon Fiber... Make a trip to your local HomeDepot/Building Supply company and buy a sheet of ABS Plastic for about $14 from the Doors/Window section (Wood is NOT a good idea because it will tend to warp and it tears easily if you should make errors while driving/parking)

Remove your bumper. set it on top of the material. Draw an outline around the bottom border of your bumper, leaving a few inches in the rear. Use an electric saw to cut the material. Attach to your bumper with nuts and bolts and you are done thumbsup

(use your fav color paint to spiffy the look of your new add-on)

Here are some examples of how the Front Air Splitter is attached...
