Since the valance on my 924S is all bent up, I've been trying to find a halfway decent replacement. All the used ones I've found are bent and mangled. Nobody wants to part with a nice one. I don't really blame them. I'd probably keep a spare if I could find one.

That being said, I've been wondering if anyone is making an aftermarket valance for the '24? I found a few but they all are for wide body kits and I'd much rather just keep everything looking stock. Is there a stock looking reproduction valance out there somewhere?

Has anyone tried making a fiberglass mold from a halfway decent stock part? I may give it a shot this winter if I don't have any luck. It looks like it would be a pretty simple 1 piece mold. Obviously fiberglass would crack instead of bend if you hit something, but it would be pretty simple to make another one once you have a good mold.

Check ecklers automotive. They are about 500$. I just straightened and patched up my 81 924's for under 50$ and some time... to get it perfect would be difficult. I painted mine black so it became much less noticeable than the dented rusty bent previous version
