    Took the underbody diffusers off my 1995 F355 today. Some damage and cracks seen. Just wondering if anyone has tried to fix them with a fiberglass kit? Got plenty of time to work on them over the winter. Put some pics up.

    Or maybe those carbonfiber diffusers from Valence would be a good option. Has anybody installed them on their own car?

    Thanks, Charlie

    That's where they always tend to break. Ours are double-reinforced with Kevlar along both longitudinal edges. We offer discounts for non-cosmetic grade carbon fiber parts, since we don't have to spend hours clear-coating and polishing. We simply paint them matte-black to match the stock parts. Our diffusers make a nice and reasonably priced upgrade if yours are broken.

    Call or e-mail for details.

    Oh, yes, if you do plan on fixing them yourself, use epoxy resin, not polyester ("fiberglass") resin.

    I have the Valence diffusers on my car and they are a perfect fit and are finished to the level that you are sad they are in a place where they can't be easliy seen. They are finished to the level of an interior carbon fiber piece.

    On the diffuser front has anyone tried to modify a 360 diffuser to fit the 355?
