It is such an odd material. It has strength while having no strength.

interesting you ask, not that I could tell.

hard to see in that video, but the bolts dont have the feel like they were painted over and "stuck" the bumpers. Hard to find the words to say what I mean

The bolts appear to be red... if they are red, they've been painted. I'd suspect someone painted it and didn't bother to remove the bolts. Just speculating.

oh I get what you are saying, but what I mean is once something is pained over it kind of becomes one with the item it was painted with until it is wrenched or screwed off.

then you would feel/see an instant change of texture. like a layer over then a whole that would be a layer less than the painted layer.

oh man reading what I am saying it sounds confusing, but it is the best I can explain.

yea, i understand what you're saying. that corner piece seems to be a bit collapsed. just replace it. the underside of it appears that its ready to blowout and thats what give it rigidity. once those are gone, the whole thing starts to go. its three pieces, but they really all need to be there for it to work.

That bumper has 100% - without a shred of a doubt - been repainted while on the car. The screw is definitely red and it shouldn't be.

That is exactly what it does. Im confident it is a critical piece as I have notice a 10 degree average drp in oil temps with it on and off. I have the Turner piece by the way.

Yes, our tray seals the oil cooler airflow path to maintain cooling function. Cooling ability is reduced with damaged or missing undertray parts.

What do they cost?

Either the price is listed and my browser isn't loading something or I cannot find it.
