Thumbs up Garage Door Bottom Seal "Front Spoiler"

I was inspired (again) with Kaotic's ride I got this garage door bottom seal on sale for $4.50 got some other parts for $15.00 and spent like 2 1/2 hours under the car, came out great!

Ok, now anything 4.5" and above I go around!

This one with some Infrared-film effect! (looks like a black yaris)






Some of the Twisty back roads of New England near home.

Holy shizznits, that's a lotta screws and washers!

But, it looks good! Being a perfectionist pays off!

Question: how does it affect the sound stage and imaging?

Well, you might not be a perfectionist... but it looks like it's perfectly applied to your bumper...

I did what Kaotic recommended me to do, maybe overkill but I hope I can keep it until next winter.

Love it. I like your choice of washers too. I didn't measure mine, and mine are actually too big in diameter, which is why mine is wavy in some parts. Good job!

For me, I used self tapping screws. 1.5" long screws would be good enough. As for washers, I'd just compare it to the surface of the bottom seal that you are going to buy as each brand may be different. I, as well as Derick (I think), used extra strength double sided tape. Mine has held up for a few years and quite a bit of nasty driveways and speed bumps.

Spacing should 3-4".

it might sound silly, but it might not be a bad idea for the rear as well just for extra protection? I know that once my exhaust is routed through my rear bumper I will want to protect the bottom of it on backing up.

You can give it a try. Not sure how that would look. I've seen people use these as side skirts too, and those don't look right.
