    Tip :protection for underneath of front bumper

    Hello , I have a 997S and like many of you , I bottom it quite often and scrape the underneath.
    I think I found the solution: Went to Pep boys and bought a small can of " Herculiner " ( the stuff used for truck bedding ) and a coarse rolling brush and gave it three coats , I think this would do it, it is the only product that seems to do the job.

    Re: Tip :protection for underneath of front bumper

    Explain more what your doing/did please????
    When you put this stuff underneath.. what does it do?

    Didnt you have that rubber junky guard underthere.
    W/O the car being lowered I cant understand why you would scrape that much.
    Help me understand your plan of action!!! ;-)

    I have H & R springs, dropped 1.5, front can take a beating, but I have it under control...I think

    Re: Tip :protection for underneath of front bumper

    there is a rubber guard... i kinda scrapped it once.. i thought i scratched my bumper!

    Re: Tip :protection for underneath of front bumper

    The part Iam refering to is the the underneath of the car in the front ( not the the rubber guard) although you can coat that too.
    I just gave three coats of this rubberized stuff so the front bottom of the car doesn't get scrapped so much when going out of parking lots, bumps , Etc.

    Ugly as it can be. There is no reason to scrape the front bumper/spoiler if one is careful.

    Re: Tip :protection for underneath of front bumper

    That shlt'll scrape off in a heart beat. Nice try though

    Re: Tip :protection for underneath of front bumper

    Why not just use stonegard? Now it just looks like you scraped the paint completely off the bottom. I say remove it if you can. If you can't, why would you do it in the first place?

    Re: Tip :protection for underneath of front bumper

    Quick question!! is the rubber 'junky' guard (underneath the front bumper) supposed to be a little loose? I mean the clips which hold it are in place but there is room for a little movement. Please advise!

    Yes, though I think the degree of "snugness" is subjective. You can re-snug it by pushing up and pulling a bit toward you then a bit rearward to "seat" the notched plugs a bit. It should be reasonably flush

    I'm sure it's got a bit of "break away" quality designed in to it.

    Re: Tip :protection for underneath of front bumper

    will try to 're-snug' it and let u know.. but it is reasonably flush.. only from one end its a little lose (like 5cm space right at the very end).. Thanks.
