That's why I can't use a front spoiler or flares, Our driveway in winter rarely get plowed, so driving through a couple feet of snow is common and would prolly damage or rip them off. Nice job though.

Here's me playing in a few feet of snow in the explorer. Common to have this much snow in the driveway.

OUCH, I used to have a daily driver ...What am I saying they all were, even the Phoenix was for a short time about twenty years ago. Molded flairs and spoilers do not mix well with snow and a daily driver. espcially in your climate. Good luck with your fix, Just a hint from the guru of glass...J&J, use glass Mat instead of woven cloth it's stronger, saturate completely, work out all air bubbles, and don't get a drop of sweat in it, that spot will never cure.

I try to use mostly mat,its very easy to work with and shape,the cloth is ok on somethings....I used mat & the heavy woven cloth on back sides for reinforcement,I used about 6 layers of mat and resin to build up 1/4" to edge of gullwing,I think it is alot stronger using mat grin
