  • The other option, and possibly a better fit, is the Time Attack style one from ABW. looks quite similar to the one Gobstopper 1 ran with.

    • The late type looks lovely dude on the car. Would make yours look even more mega I used that splitter on mine (hacked it of course) but it looked so cool on the stock bumper.... Would be a great addition in my veiw....

      • that's good to hear, cheers mate. Did you paint it, or is the black gel coat a good enough finish to just be bonded straight on?

        There's a possibility that IARC might be able to repair the Seibon one - OK, the weave won't line up, and you'll see the join, but it might not be too noticeable. That way, I can keep the carbon fibre one fitted, and we all know there's just something cool about carbon

        • The gel coat was very good on the one I got. I just gave it a quick scotch and a few layers of satin black but it didn't really need it.... then I cut it up anyway....

          you're right though carbon is king

          • great, thanks for the info James. will possibly save the effort of painting it then, if that's the route I go down.

            Just had a quote on a replacement Seibon one. They've gone up a LOT in five years - had been about 400+VAT, a new one now, delivered, would be just over 800!!

            • Decision made - just placed an order for the ABW Time Attack style one. There was a possibility of getting the carbon one repaired with fibreglass, painted black, and then hydro dipped. But, I wasn't sure what the repair would look like, and the local hydro dippers haven't got a tank big enough to fit it in.

              A whole brand new splitter seemed the best solution. Shame to lose the carbon fibre, but it's too costly, and too vulnerable I'll still keep hold of it though, if I can ever look at getting it repaired in the future.

                • Will make the front end look completely different. Good choice
