Default Can someone measure their IC air “scoop” for me?

I meant to call A&A today and forgot and am gonna be putting my car back together together. I broke the little plastic air scoop/blade thing that bolts to the bottom. I obviously know how wide it is, just how wide so it doesn’t hang down smtoo far and I have to do this again.


Thanks

Couldn't you just get a piece of plastic that is larger than what you will need and trim it down to get the ground clearance you need after you mock it up and take measurements? That should help you reduce the chances of this happening again.

With how low my car is getting under it to measure uninstall re trim re install re check etc would just be a nightmare. If i got the measurement i could install it onto the IC off the car, bolt it up then check to make sure its okay
