Did you buy them new? If so you have everything you need.

The lower valence is a direct bolt on with the factory gear, not sure about the chin splitter, but no sympathy has one, listen to him on that

Yeah you'll need there actual bolts and hardware for the splitter. They are made to snug the splitter up tight to the correct location on the fascia.

You maybe could find something similar at a hardware store? It would need to be a C shape that fits over a hole drilled in the fascia and the hole in the splitter. So the two sitting on top of each other, C clamp goes over them with an open hole that a bolt can go into and then bolt goes through both holes and clamps the C down tight.

I take it back. It uses the bolts on the outer edge and I forgot it has the plastic punch bolts for the inner part. The same ones like on your radiator cover. They have a plastic center piece that when pushed in expands it and holds it in place.

I would check at a ford dealership and see if they have those and maybe get the bolts and C shape pieces at a hardware store.

No problem! Glad I could help. If you get stuck feel free to ask I've done the install myself and will help best I can!

I do recommend putting the splitter on while the fascia is off the car too!

There's an eBay company selling the chin without the hardware for like $80. I think I'll pick 1 up and hit up the hardware store

Looking good man! Seems like a small change but makes our cars look so different. I could be just wanting to believe but seemed like the car was a little easier to drive with it on too.

highway doing 80 I didn't feel like the car was fighting as hard to drive forward. Yet again really got that feeling of the car having an easier time driving when I lowered her. Seems like she just cuts through the air now.

I was on a closed course today, a runway where Hennessy was trying to break a world record for speed with their venom and got a chance to run my stang. I got it up to 145mph and it started to get a little squirlly so I backed off the throttle. I was wishing I had the boss chin spoiler to keep the car planted. It might be one of my next mods...good info here

You have to get the HID fogs in the fascia with the HID headlights.....it looks so beautiful at night.

I'm thinking the same, HID is the only way to go... The lights on this CS valence are dim and useless

They are brighter than my headlights that have covers on them

I tried using H11 LEDs and it was a total waste, I'm looking for a reputable HID to go with the lower fogs

I haven't even bothered looking into all that yet. I don't have any trouble currently and so it isn't a top priority.
