Default Re: LTW/GT front splitter users. A question about the under tray.

Buying something from a company with a reputation for mediocre communication combined with cross border shipping is a pain. Either way, its not relevant to what this thread is about at this point.

Cut thin strips of aluminum (I believe 1/8") and trim/bend them 90 to fit inside the mounting tabs. Drill a hole through both on the vertical surface and pop rivet it in. This eliminates the weak point since the plastic usually cracks over time at the mounting point which is why they sag and eventually let go. Have never had one fail doing this in >15 years. Sorry I can't find any pictures of this, ill keep looking though.
If we get a bit more info on this we can do it at the shop westo - I've got the material and tools to make these alu strips

Awesome. I think when I have the part in my hand I totally understand how Jon means to reinforce these.
