Default Re: How-to Mount OEM GT Front Splitter to Motion Motorsports Panel

I already have an MM panel and I have been recently thinking about a good way to integrate an additional lip to work with the panel for track days.

So, this came just in time for me! Thanks for the detailed write up.

I had actually already purchased rivnuts for this, so I'm happy to see that our thinking was similar and that it has already been done successfully. However, I will be using a DIY lip/panel so it may turn out slightly different.

Brett,

Can you state the model of your Rivnut tool and the accessories to go with it including the drill bits and the diameter of the drill bit used.

I was just under my car an hour ago and the mounts to the frame rails have failed for the same reasons you've stated. I just want those mounts to be 100% permanent.

Thank you!

Thank you,

Until he reply, I think the rivnut tool was for the m12...you need the step drill bit...look for the ones in mm...I got one coming from China via eBay (4mm - 22mm) as well as the 6mm nutsert and bolts.

He hasn’t replied and this is the last item left before the car goes back on the road. I’m going to get Taso at TKX to look into it. Let’s see what clever solution he comes up with.

What would be amazing is a full underbody tray, Brett! Please make one!

Thank you,



You select the drill size based on the outside diameter of the rivnut. I'm not going to give specific drill bit sizes as rivnuts can vary depending on manufacturer.

Hey Bret, I’m not planning of n using the LTW blade, but I do want to mount my MM Panel so the bolts are flush mounted like you have, is all I need just the hardware kit that you sell, plus the rivnut gun?

You can, yes. I need to figure out the cost on that.
