Yeah,

Ireland molded it. Mounted it w/ sheet metal screws. It was designed to work w/o flares - i.e., needs modifying if car is flared. I didn't do anyting with the brake duct cutouts since they were pretty small - may eventually install 3" brake duct kit in place of the provided 2"er.

When mounting it, get it located where you want it, and then use some duct tape on the outside edges. Then drill mounting holes starting in the center of the car working out toward the ends. You shouldn't need more than about 5 or 7 fasteners.

And, BTW, the mold is more than cosmetic. When fitted to my car, the factory, you-forgot-to-lock-the-hood-down warning sytem was disabled. Instead, the hood just sat complacently at any speed - no more hood lift .

: Independent? i think a few other places (like Ireland) sell a similar one. i bought one and haven't had it painted yet. i am wondering how you mounted them to the car. sheet metal screws? something else? and what did you do with the foglight/brake duct cut-outs? and does it look ok without having any kind of flares on the car? thanks for any input you all can give.
