Just a quick update

After 15 months I finally got the powertrain finished. Since my boss decided to stop "rewarding" me for my work two months ago, now I got lots of time but no money to spend, so I decided to install the MTech-1 kit I bought and do the paint myself. After three cans of Duplicolor at $8.99 by no means it looks professional but I've been watching these parts hanging on my garage for so long and I really need something to feel good.

The front side is done (except for the fog lights)

Now I'm working on the rear apron and need to figure out where this bracket goes. Any thoughts?

That bracket holds the bottom of the rear valence by the exhaust cutout up, I think. gets bolted to the metal rear valence.

There is a hole on the valance by the exhaust cutout up. It seems pretty rigid to me though, not sure what good would it make there but I'm going to give it a try. The valance's bottom section towards the center, tends to sag down overtime.

it softens up from being heated by the exhaust

Just curious if anyone has ever done any DIY's on this kit? I ask because I have a ton of boxes of new parts, but don't necessarily know where to start. A bunch are euro bumper parts and a bunch are Mtech 1 parts. It is a touch daunting for sure without a bunch of trial and error.

I could post pictures tomorrow, but there are a lot of parts. I guess everything you need for Euro bumpers and Mtech1. I am sure I could figure it out, but just thinking if there was something online it would save me hours and hours of head-scratching.

Do we have an MTech 1 Thread?

Kronus is correct that goes by exhaust side on the inner bottom lip of the spoiler. It then bolts on the rear metal valance.

Thanks. It makes sense ... support for that area, which is exposed to heat and prone to sag.
