The reason Im doing white is that I dont want to bring attention to it..I want it to blend..If it were carbon Fiber that would be different..I think since it only protudes 1' its better this way ..91lamborestor said:Would you post a picture of it on the car?
Aluminum is not usually polished then painted. Polishing actually hampers the cohesion of the paint. Aluminum needs to be treated before paint. Like the front fenders of your car. I think black would be a universal color that would look nice.
It looks like it it is held on with adhesive tape. Is this correct?
Its not meant to absorb hard impacts..Just for when you pull in or out of driveways where clearences are marginal..Its designed for when you rolling out slowly and want to avoid scraping and chipping at slow rolling speeds..not for hard impacts to act like a shock absorber..monahan_z said:It's not really clear to me how this will protect the front spoiler. Putting a layer of hard metal between the ground and the carbon fiber spoiler will still transfer the force up to the spoiler and crack it. What is needed is a cushion or spring to absorb the impact and shift the force somehow away from the spoiler. Also I worry it will get scraped off and be left hanging after a scratch/bump.
I use a few layers of 3M "helicopter tape" on mine. It’s a tape used to protect the front surfaces of helicopter blades in sandy environments. It's quite durable and absorbs some impact. It’s transparent and peels off when you want to replace it. However it's still not a great solution.
Ah, yes. If nothing sticks to teflon, how does teflon stick to the front spolier?when i complained to my sales guy about my conscientious but unsuccessful attempts to avoid scuffing the underside of the leading edge he said he wished somebody could come up with a way to adhere a layer of that teflon-type stuff that goes on the heel plates of skateboards.
Somebody please figure out a way to do it and get back to me. i'm one of the old guys, so i'll need an answer soon
