Yes, very interested, and I don't at all mind doing fitment and finishing work.

- Remind me, does it require a '99 bumper? I don't know if the '93 and '99 share the same mount pattern (that is, can you put a '99 spoiler on a '93 bumper?)

- If not, I'd need to buy a '99 bumper. Hmmm, actually I'd probably get the bumper anyway... Does anyone besides Pettit sell a urethane plateless version? Where did you get yours?

Thanks for doing this. It really is a simple, elegant and functional solution. And the bigger brake duct inlet is a real plus.

It's built around the shape of the '99 lip, and thus I think you'd at least need the '99 lip to make it work. A '99 bumper would thus be the ideal, but it should work with the '93 bumper about as well as the '99 lip does (which is to say, not perfect).

I don't know who all sells the urathane plateless bumper anymore, but as far as I know they are all made from the same mold, i.e.: the original Rotary Extreme mold from which I got mine on the original group buy years ago.

I'm interested even though my lip already scrapes on my driveway.

Think fab work may turn off some. Can they be drilled to match the existing bumper/lip/undertray holes and provided with corresponding hardware (longer bolts)

I am very interested! I also wouldn't mind having to sand down an edge or two.. mostly all aftermarket body accessories are like that anyway.

Please let me know if you decide to produce and sell this spacer. I have had enough of the fragile aftermarket front bumper covers and am installing an OEM '99 bumper now. Thanks!
