Sorry I do not. They fit perfectly along the front lip of the spoiler.

Michael,
Getting ready to install mine. The 3m tape looks like a clean way to go.. What type 3m vhb tape works best for this? Also can it be removed with heat gun if needed? Do you think it needs entire surface covered or just a wide strip down middle of skid plate?
Cheers,
Andrew

Andrew,
Difficult for me to give you a recommendation as I always used silicone. I know "Gunpilot" used VHB, you might want to contact him.

Used the 3m VHB 4991 tape and installed very smooth. Easy to adjust position during install and very solid adhesion when done. Pretty much invisible unless you look underneath car. Great product! Thanks Michael! And thanks Gunpilot for install advice.

I was going to buy a lip or splitter but being that they lower the car even more, this might have to do.

Scraping your front end is "painful", get these before, not after it happens.

Hi Michael - will these adhere if there already is damage on the chin?

I have a crack (about an inch) on the left side and a scrape on each side - enough that the white of the fiberglass is showing through the paint.

05 Elise, ST, sports, touring, hardtop, DBA 4000 slotted discs, Ferodo DS2500 pads, Sector 111 gpan3, EP Tuning Quickrack, Pro Alloy rad, DS brace, HnT pad, front and rear tow hooks, CG lock, ORE double cup holder (caffeine for track); '86 911 Targa (sold); '68 MGB (being restored)

I will be in the Delray area in a few days. Can I pop by to see these on a car? My Evora has a little chin rash which I will take care of and would like to put your product on straight away.
