I hand traced the shape of my bumper and came up with a very rough template. Next, I'll move on to some stiffer material for the next template, this way I'll be able to mock it up to my car and I'll be able to fine tune the shape.

I'm at the stage where I have to decide between two types of designs. 1. Complete under tray that covers the complete underside of the radiator, or 2. With the center section cut out. With the under tray design, the whole front bumper cover must be removed for installation, but will probably function a little better. The other style can be mounted right up without having to remove the front bumper cover, might not be quite as affective, lighter design. Here are a couple pics of the different styles. Any suggestions will be helpful.Click image for larger version

Splitter idea

Roush uses the same splitter supports as I'm going to use for their 2010-12 splitter.Click image for larger version

Hmmm.
Quick, easy and light verses may work better, difficult installation, heavier.

How much better is the full length splitter?
Can some removable access panels be placed in the full length splitter to facilitate installation?

I'll bet your learning more about all of this stuff than you thought that you'd ever need to know...

Yeah, I think I like the idea of being easier to install. I'll see how easy it is to make an access panel, but I'm not exactly sure how much the full undertray will help over the easy access version. I sure am learning a lot as I go! Who would have known how much thought goes into the design of these splitters. Last night I mocked something up and I have the splitter protruding from the Mach 1 lip by 3 inches curving with the contours of the Mach 1 lip with it tapering to flush with the sides. Just to give you a rough idea, here is a pic.Click image for larger version

Very good point! Or just back into parking spots.

Yea I plan to get one of those when I lower my car. Why I said cones was because we have both autocrossed with each other before.

Thanks guys! Its nearing completion. I still have to cut the center section out to make installation easier, then I'll have my final template.

How do you think the splitter plus the mach 1 chin would look body colored (to something besides black)?

Thanks Ron! I'm happy with the overall proportions also. Aggressive, but not too over the top.

Plexiglass would work, it's just more expensive than the current material in looking at.

I think it would look great, but from what I understand, the seaboard material doesn't take painting well. I'm sure either just painting the Mach 1 chin and leaving the splitter black would look great. Otherwise we could look into a more paintable medium for your splitter.

Sorry, but I've been working so much that I haven't made much progress on the splitter. But I'll try to make some headway soon. While I was at Home Depot I got inspired, and I may try to develop a brake ducting kit while I'm at it.

Lol.
I've had that same thought while walking down the very same aisle at Home depot. There are a variety of registers and such, available, that you can make work with the flexible duct.

Ha! Yeah, there isn't much to the brake cooling kits.

I wish I could say yes, but my wife is due to give birth in 5 days, so I've taken a brake on the splitter. But I promise after things calm down, I will finish the prototype. Sorry for lagging so hard.

Hey congratulations!! Expecting a child is a valid reason to put projects on hold.

Thank you! We're starting to get excited. But I'll definitely get on the splitter as soon as I have some free time.

Not to throw a curve in your idea but will this work with the 03-04 cobra bumper?

Sorry for the delayed response. But I should have a little time to work on it soon. The mounting system I've devised should work with the cobra front bumper, do you have the rubber chin spoiler or the Mach 1 chin? Or if you don't have a chin spoiler, you won't have any need for the mounting brackets.

Then it would be a really easy install. It would bolt up directly without the complicated mounting hardware.

Sorry for briging back an old forum, I was poking around the internet because I was interested in a diffuser for the front of my 99 Cobra and I found this thread.

Any progress on the splitter?
