Finally got my "new" splitter installed. Used PVC pipe cement to glue 3 layers of 1/8" ABS sheet together so I'd have a 3/8" splitter. Felt the original 1/4" was a little too thin. It only protruded 2 inches from the bumper, which is not far enough based on the research I've done. This one protrudes 4 inches. Should help control the airflow better. Should. Also took some pictures of the updated brackets I ran from the front bumper to the crossmember. Naturally, got done after sunset.

Last night I got the second panel installed aft of the splitter. Took a series of adjustments, but it's fitted, and should help guide airflow past the frame/crossmember for the front suspension, and should help draw air out of the engine bay. Would have been better to have figured this out two months ago while it was still hot, but better late than never.
AND, I finished repairs to the front tire fairings, and got them reinstalled tonight. Took multiple little adjustments, probably because I banged them up so bad last winter, and I changed the brackets a bit. But they should work as well as before, and be a little more secure.
I began to realize that these tire fairings in combination with the engine belly panels help to draw more air from the engine bay. This mainly helps on the highway. Pictures of the fairings uploaded.
