OK, so I'm going to lower my 86 GT 1-1.5 inches just to get it to get my 17" wheels to sit right. I want to add a chin spoiler but the ones I have found look to low for the roads and drive ways here in East Texas. Fiberglass would just get raped around here. I see it all the time with euro cars and busted body kits, lol. So and body know how to make one or get one without spending $200+ for a little strip?

Cut the bottom half off a GT bumper and bolt it on upside down. It will flex when you hit stuff. I have it on my car and have hopped it over a curb and backed off of it without any problems besides paint loss. I'm on my phone so I can't post a picture, but I'm sure someone will.

Any chin spoiler on stock height cars will get dinged up. A flexible one can be made from another aero nose, cut at the seam and installed "upside down". That will flex as you run over stuff, but will still get dinged up. The fiberglass one I installed on my 88 GT has been taken off and repainted three times. The 88 is at stock height and the nose still scrapes going in or out of driveways. You really have to watch out for parking lot concrete blocks.

Here is mine, yeah i know the paint, it sucks!!! Anyway here is how it looks, using a spare Aero nose and cutting it up and flipping it upside down, and even though it is flexible, if you lower your car (I cut 2 coils off the front srpings) and are not careful you can still mess it up, check the last pic, can you see where its cracked!!! Bottom pass side.

Few pics.

Yeah, y'alls look good. I don't have an extra bumper and there is no way I could cut up a good one. I will have to wait until I Ind a bad one or get info on Taurus chin

I know what you mean about Texas roads and speed bumps. Why not invest in a set of air assist shocks up front, for those awkward moments....

I am going to install backup sensors on the front for those parking blocks. They are available with a measuring device as well but in metric.
