I always had the understanding that foam bumper inserts were only intended to minimize frame damage in sub 5mph impacts. Beyond that, I dont think they do anything.


Planning to make a little aero design in there to direct air to all the right places while I do my home made chassis mount splitter next week .

Could you elaborate on how it came up short? Assuming you ordered the 40" x 13" ebay sheet, which dimension came up short?

Under where my plate is I snipped some access from another area and matched it all up, since it’s behind my plate anyway it’s unnoticeable

Here’s my foam solution to direct air from the flat face of the crash beam.

$10 black “eavestrough foam” from home deplot, Alex plus to “glue” it on the crash beam and then filled with great stuff gap filler to add extra rigidity to hold its form against wind at high speeds (added bonus it’s stupid sticky and helps hold the black eavestrough foam on)
The “top” or outermost point of the foam seals air from the top of the new grill area and directs all the air along the downward angle.
Nothing crazy or to lose your head over but a simple $15-$20 solution for anyone who’s willing put the work in.

That foam being porous could be absorbing air? A layer of coroplast over it could be a deflector

Someone said it would look better with a big fat intercooler and I agree
