willse how long it will last :/

why do this you may think ? its to trap the air and make a high pressure pocket t force more air into the IC and less air udner the car = downforce

my beautiful picture ;) the text in the pic is in swedish but says Before and after

My genuine TWR front bumper is mainly carbon fibre but they still used plywood on the bottom edges. Better to sacrifice plywood when scraping the curbs than the carbon fibre.

If it's quality vinyl you should be able to roll it and rubber band it around a cardboard tube and pop it in a box
