I received the first set from Malloy. First impressions are these are a great mold. The material has some flexibility, but is denser/stronger than foam for sure.

I will get them installed in ~2 weeks, at which time I will also compare the dimensions to the OEM pieces. Well, I only have the OE long/center piece, so will compare those anyway, but that should be indicative. At this time I suspect 0 issues, these obviously have the taper, are level, etc.

I plan on securing them to the kevlar bar with Gorilla tape so that it's a lifetime replacement!

Thanks again, Malloy! More pictures and feedback coming ASAP.

I'm definitely in like Flynn for a set when done. I have a Reiger bumper and the gaps are killing me. When my OE bumper went missing, either these went with, or they were never there. Anyway, I'm down for a set. PayPal ready.

Default Re: Dimensions of OE Foam Supports/Shims for Front Bumper Bar

So DanAvon and I did get these test fitted on my car the other day. While very close, they did not fit perfectly. The height, taper, width, and length were all right, but the curvature (when looking down on them) was ever so slightly off. If they were foamier then maybe this would be fine, but since the material is actually quite stiff, they are too brittle to force into position.

Malloy is going to fit them to his bumper shortly for a second opinion, and if needed, will figure out a v2.0. Regardless, Malloy is a great guy to work with, so I am positive everybody will be happy once these are widely available. It will just require a little more patience.

In the meantime I cut plain old styrofoam from Michael's in the dimensions from the Imola/CSL car on page 1, wrapped them in packaging tape to avoid them from braking/crumbling, and they are doing the job. So for those who are impatient, you can consider this route.

That's ... not a bad idea. It may be a tougher to cut but the material is great and it'll have that taper on top (which I'm still not convinced is necessary, but can't hurt if that was stock).
