I didn't take pics but I can at some point.
I used 1/2" so that I could recess the screw heads a little through the UHMW, so they were not sticking out. I made billet blocks and threaded them, fitting them inside the lip of the bumper and held them in place with thin flat head screws, this way they will stay in place over the factory underside panel holes.
The UHMW front lip is angled so it isn't that noticeable at 1/2" but it has worked well to protect the underside of the nose.
