Custom splitter

So forgive me if this thread has been started before but I have searched and found nothing on here. Anyways, I am interested in building a splitter myself rather than forking over $500+ for a Ford Racing LS splitter or something similar. So my question is does anyone have experience in doing this? From what I've heard its simply a matter of removing the front bumper, tracing it onto 1/4 inch ABS, cutting out the template and placing the splitter as far forward as you would like it before drilling holes to bolt it down. Now I know there's a few more steps than that but is that the general "jist" on how to do it or am I way off?


I hope my wife never sees the price of these mods...

I would think its gonna take you quite some time to get this done. If time is money, then it will most likely be cheaper to get the boss splitter. Its not expensive. Like 160 bucks for reg boss splitter

So i'm all for making custom parts and the fun in the process of doing it. I am a big DIY guy myself.

However one thing I've learned over the years is when you do something like this for the first time, you will spend as much or more doing it yourself and it will probably look like **** the first time. You will almost always have to make it twice. Whatever you think it will cost, double that and you will still be a little short of the actual cost.

If you are trying to do it yourself because you think it will be "cheaper" you will probably be disappointed. If you do it because you want to learn how to do it, go for it.
