Take it out and let it sit outside for a day and it will straighten out

I still got the splitters on from factory, do I need to take them off or will chin spoiler cover them up?

Laying the spoiler in the sun makes it more flexible and eaiser to shape , if the spoiler came with push pins I would replace them with 1/4" bolts ( push pins suck) you can keep the factory splitters on

If you got someone to help you then you don't really have to let it sit out, my dad helped me keep it in place so I didn't need to let it sit out.

Does it sit flush with front clip? Could someone take a close pic? If I don't have much sun, could I warmup crease spots with hair dryer? Sorry so many questions, just trying to have everything covered.

The LMR one sits flush all around, the traditional Mach 1 chin doesn't sit flush. You can either have it sit flush at the wheel wells and have he front sit back about a 1/4 inch, or have a small gap at the wheel wells but sit flush at the front... I decided to have it sit flush at the sides so it sits a 1/4 inch back in the front... I like the offset look though

Yea mine didn't sit flush with the wheel wells. And I definately recommend having someone help. Would have been a pain trying to hold it and still holes at same time.

I mounted it flush in the front IMO it gives it a more aggressive look. There is a small gap at the wheel wells but not too noticeable. I didn't set mine out in the sun and it straightened out when I installed it. Best thing to do is tap it on, figure out where you want to place it on, mark the holes, take it back off, drill the holes then install with bolts washers and screws. Pretty simple installation. A definite must have if you wanna look mean!

Didn't take anything off....if you mount it tight enough it should straighten out.
