Edit - please note I haven't personally verified fit of the above parts on AWD cars, but it seems like many have done this upgrade,
Thank you! something to consider for when the mod bug strikes me next.

Thanks for the awesome write up! I gave it a shot. A lot harder than I thought it was going to be

Nice Chris. It looks good, and seems to flow well with your front lip.
Please share more pics when you can.

Hey - Just the stock spoiler from the 997.1 stock front bumper, modified slightly. Wanted to balance the front and rear out a bit after I added the aero front.

I have a cheaper solution, called "EZ lip".

Nicely done. Thanks for the details. The only exception to your work is that I would have substituted SS fasteners all around. Especially for your area--Oregon.

Any more info on this? I have the same front bumper, thinking this might be a good direction.

Anyone with a lighter coloured car (ideally white) done this? Care to post any photos?

Thanks Dan. I'm actually based in the Atlanta area, so not quite as severe as Oregon

I chose the plated bolts as they should work well in this climate. Also, I was not able to find a good source for stainless bolts in the size & type I needed. Once I have some time I may look for some titanium bolts.

Thanks for posting this. Do you have links to the L brace or did you make that? Ans where did you apply the rubber edge?

The rubber trim was used along the top edge of the skirt that makes contact with the rocker panel. You can see it in the closeup pic below:

This looks amazing! Great work!
This may be a dumb question but would something like this work for a 991.2 base?
I find the sides could have a little more to them as I have put on the sports design front lip.

I'm not sure if putting on a 991.2 would require any sort of modification like above.
I think the 991.2 GTS has these on them, but understanding the rear of the car is wider than the base.

Thanks
