Aftermarket splitter??

The OEM factory splitters are pressure formed ABS plastic on both the GT350 and R, not carbon fiber materials.
You can try PVC/ABS cement to patch an area, but that would most likely require painting to finish and make it look original.
There are resin kits for repairing C/F parts, if it is an aftermarket piece. That would also require painting to get the cosmetics correct.

Dave, thanks for the info. Judging from the price, I thought the splitter must be carbon fiber. I am aware of the repair kits, but was concerned with the color match. However, I agree, it looks like painting is the only way to get it cosmetically correct after a repair.

I have seen (on eBay) people selling new splitters at around $500. Repair and paint would probably exceed that. I recommend you buy a new one along with some Splitter savers. Only install it after you bang up the old one a few more times, it will happen.

Hi Jim;
I too have seen GT 350 splitters on line. They are reasonable, but my car is an "R" spec and the best price I can find is $1350. I ordered one as a spare (did the same years ago for my GT 500, glad I did), but repaired the original with JB Weld. After a light sanding and touch up with (don't laugh) a sharpie, followed by a polishing with black wax, the spot is not noticeable. I already have splitter savers and they help, but this nick (about 3/8 inch) was caused by something head on.
Thanks for all the help guys! Love this site!
