question 4 all ppl with aftermarket bumpers...

how do you guys secure the underbody plastics to prevent from scraping.i know since that the fasteners connected to the stock bumper have to be removed theres nothing holding the front of the plastics??? confused confused
just incase you where wondering i came back from the body shop iam on the freeway and i dunno what happend...i think since it wasnt connected it "caught" the wind it pushed it down causing it to scrape good thing i heard it rite away and prevented more damege

fig A:(the circled part)

I got the shop to install mine, they just ziptied it and it hasn't caused me a problem at all and it's been a week. A week of thick snow, chunky snow, slush and everything nature can throw in my way and nothing has happened yet. I hope it stays that way grin

if you're around the valley for the rest of this weekend - drop by my place - I'd like to check it out and see what could be done to get you back in action again - I've got plenty of zip ties, underbody fasteners and a nice floor jack just waiting to get back under a celica again thumbsup
