Seat Leon Cupra R Custom Moulded Splitter

Picked up an LCR splitter from a Seat main dealer for £21, after seeing them fitted to quite a few MG ZR's. I wasn't over keen with how most people had just bolted it on, I wanted a more OEM feel, so I got to work moulding it on. I offered it up and found an excessive amount of force was needed to hold it in place how I wanted it.

To achieve the tight moulded fit to the MG ZR lower splitter, I had to whip out the old heat gun and set about moulding it.

After quite some faffing, it now fits with no gaps even in the upsweeps which is how I wanted it to look, as if it was actually made for the car. On top of adding to the race graphic of the car, it's also a nice edition to the black and red theme.
