You can get the 3M tape at any auto parts store. I've seen them at my local Pepboys and Autozone.

We followed this DIY last Saturday and got the splitters on in about 30 minutes. No trouble at all. I got them from JBSpeed, not OEM.

Does anyone have an electronic copy of the installation instructions?

Thanks

nm - instructions from OP were great. Took about 2 hours, but came out good. I agree with using some extra tape, so minimize some of the gaps.

Thanks guys

Thanks for the write-up! Some observations from my install:

- I drilled holes through the fascia and backing trim and threaded the screw straight in. I bought edge clips but didn't bother with them and the hold seems fine (with 3m tape of course)

- I bought mine used, so I'm not sure if this is a common issue. I had a couple millimeters of body color still visible behind the splitters upon installation - very noticeable on white.



My solution was to get some pinstriping tape (I had a graphite color on-hand) and tape the area behind the splitter.



Successfully closed up the gap!
