Someone might have lost it all in one go. I lost the undertray and
those side pieces went along as well. I was lucky enough to find
them all used (and really cheap) on ebay.–

When I did mine, I found that there were a total of four pieces
missing: the dam itself, the undertray, and the forward lower 1/4 of
each front wheel well. I bought the dam and fabricated the other
three parts from sheets of black plastic. The undertray was easy,
but the sections of wheel well were a bit more challenging, involving
some aluminum angle to form attachment points between the undertray
and the wheel well sections.

Mine should be here on Monday. The thing has 50 lbs of shipping
weight. That should help keep her nose down. I�m not sure what is
included. I have a good undertray and lower grill. I will take a
look at the fenders and wheel wells. Some if not all of the screws
for the spoiler were left in the underpan. I have some aluminum
stock and I think I can fabricate any attachment pieces I may
need. Luckily, I have a friend with the same model. I�ll check it
out. He also knows a good paint shop.

The undertray is definitely not 50 pounds. I would believe 5-10
at most.

I repaired mine. I believe there are some pics at my Web site.

that shipping weight is amazing, spoiler is abt 2pounds and
undertray is abt 1 1/2 poounds, ups is definitely getting
their cut of jag price gouging. I recently installed a used
spoiler and a new undertray, yes new , some 250.00 usd for
this piece of plastic. its a nice piece but not that nice.
the one unknown when I installed the spoiler was the
attachment method at the front of the undertray to the bottom
of the spoiler, a little research showed the hardware to be
plastic push in barbed anchors, the same anchor is used to
connect the front inner wheelwell piece. picked them up in
the HELP section in autoparts store. I think that there are
about 12 of these across the front of the spoiler.>>Ken
