Got them on last night. Seriously took longer to get my ramps out and the ass end of the car up so I could get enough room to put the screws in than it did to put them on. Very easy install. Really happy with the look, although my pics don't really show it ( cell phone) going to get wife to take some with her gear this weekend , will post those pics when available. Only issue I had with the entire experience is one of the long side splitters didn't have pre-drilled holes to put the screws in, so I had to figure that out all by myself ;-) They really look bad ass, went to Toyota dealership to drop sons truck off to have airbag recall done and the service guys ( who have seen the car before) came out and said" ohh shit carbon fiber splitters, those must have cost a fortune" I just smiled and winked...lol
Great work Sal!!
Here's some pic taken by the wife. Went to Local gathering last night and the car got tons of attention, lots of very positive comments about the splitters. These match the V2V perfectly. I am really impressed man and I am one picky mf'er.

1. I'm beating a dead horse, but Sal is great to deal with. Responsive, stands behind his product, and bends over backwards to help you out. 2. Packaging was insanely good. No way these things get damaged during shipping. 3. Instructions are neat and precise. Took 20 min to do both sides. Was easier with a friend (thanks Irishc6!) but can be done with one person. Do yourself a favor and grab a set of these rocker blades.
I continue to get compliments regarding his products on my vehicle at every car meet I attend. You would think it is almost too good to be true. Great product, great customer service, and what’s best, GREAT price. His products are competitive with what else the market has to offer, and his prices make the decision a very easy one.
You can tell he takes great pride in his work. He engages the community in the development process of products he wants to release. That is the kind of person you want to buy from. I do not hesitate to send fellow V owners to Black Moon Products. Every person I have referred to him have come back to me with glowing reviews about Sal and his products.”

Just wanted to tell you and everyone on the fence about buying these how happy I am with my blades !!! The care taken in the packaging and the quality of the workmanship of the blades is OUTSTANDING ! I was skeptical at first about buying something made in
someones garage until they actually arrived !!! (and also until saw pictures of his garage !!!) They were packaged along all the screws, tape and all instructions necessary. It took longer to unwrap them than it did to read thru the instructions and mount them !! BY FAR the best 300 bucks I have spent on my car !!! They really do look GREAT !!! Thank you Sal for offering your quality of workmanship to the forum members !! You are one of the reasons we have such a great forum !!! another very satisfied customer !!!!
You know what's really crazy - normally I HATE HATE HATE this kind of stuff. Its just me - I'm the one with the messed up brain, but I don't like all kinds of stuff added on. Maybe I'm afraid of looking like a 'Merica Ricer or something LOL! But the amazing feedback, incredible pics, and great comments on the sturdiness, looks, and much more mean I'd be a dumbass for not at least having a set in my hands. If I don't like them, I don't have to keep them, Seems they are easy enough to remove, but god only knows why anyone would do THAT!
My wife didnt even bitch she was like hmmm those actually look really good!
1. Packaging was amazing. I bet 20% of your overhead in this is packaging Sal.
2. Fit perfectly. I was worried about how I would know the correct depth of the splitter blades on the skirt but he does such a good job lining up the 3M tape that it's a no brainer. 3. Looks are great. I had 4 guys in the shop ask what I was doing after I put them on during lunch and when I pointed it out they all said "I thought that was stock!" and "whoa, that looks clean" mind you I work here so they have pretty demanding taste Alpha Performance - Home Even a few customers commented how they liked it. 4. You could not deal with a easier vendor, guy really cares about his product and his customers and it shows.
1. Ill never be this satisfied with a product that cost under $300 again.
Once I wash the dirty bitch ill pop back in here with some pictures.
Thanks again Sal. Make sure you hit me up when you get those tapered rears as I think that will look even better.
I need to get some pictures of the car in the sunlight...
1) Allow 2 hours to unwrap package. Seriously Sal, for god sake.......
2) 10 minutes to lay everything out pre-thread the screws
3) 5 minutes to jack up car, now clean the mounting surface.
4) Peeled back about 12" of sticker and aligned, then push up, now set first screw
5) Peel and push your way to the back of the car
6) Now grab your 'close quarters' drill ($24 from Harbor Freight) and finish setting the screws http://www.harborfreight.com/38-in-v...ill-60610.html
7) Rears are easy as you can pull the sticker and just press up.
8) Switch sides and done.
Figure less than an hour for everything and infinitely easier than the APR splitter.
Keep'em coming Sal!
I was expressing my appreciation for your rocker blades and hinting at taking your R&D talents to maybe come up with a rear spoiler option for us. Half sarcastic/half curious at the possibility? I think the price you are offering the rocker blades at is more than fair considering they are still an extremely affordable option compared to others. No issues in pricing here--I'm a satisfied customer.
I do still owe you some pics of them installed. I'm going in for a detail soon, but when the V comes back I will post up some pics.
Again, thanks for offering this to the group!
Super-fast shipping, quickly replies to my messages and unbelievably nice packing of the box!
The lip is literally one of the nicest parts of my car.
Thanks a ton Sal!
Also included was a nicely written set of instructions, along with all the necessary screws and hardware. Sal appears to use 3M's VHB, or Very High Bonding double sided adhesive tape. For those that haven't seen this stuff, check it out on Google or YouTube...I've pasted below a test that shows two panels of aluminum with rivets versus VHB tape, versus a 16lb bowling ball. Pretty impressive, although I'm sure we'd use more rivets right? I'll post some pics later and more when I have them installed. But first glance the attention to detail is excellent. There's a very slick double angle cut at the very rear which blends the taper of the blade behind the rear wheel into the stock bumper - that sort of subtle detail makes these well worth the $$$. Sal also went the extra mile in making mine much more subtle - they protrude much less than the "standard" design. And I think you can adjust this to your preference to some extent by altering the installation as well. I really like the tapers and angles on these blades - they blend in with the car and when mounted I think they are going to look very OEM. I'm sure people will probably not even notice them as aftermarket pieces. Pics tomorrow assuming the strongest hurricane in the history of earth doesn't shower Houston with torrential rains! Some pics - got them installed today. Was simple and straightforward. They look GREAT and Sal did an amazing job tailoring these to my preferences. What I love is that they blend in the line created by Ben's carbon front splitter - carrying that line around the car. They also make my large rear wheels and tires look a little less crammed in there. Sal did a great job on the paintwork - a special favor I asked him for as I wanted things to look very subtle and OEM. The fitment is PERFECT. Not anything anyone could complain about - excellent precision here. And the little touches, like blending the double angle cut of the rear bumper OE side part into the underside of the rear blade was really nice. A few quick pics - more later when I can organize and edit things better. I mounted these with a smaller than usual protrusion, but I did increase it at the rear - about 1 inch up front and 1.25 at the rear, starting the flare about where the front and rear doors meet. Sal was great to work with too. He goes above and beyond in a way no company can. He provides personal service that is only possible with a dedicated forum and focus only only a few products. Can't thank him enough for the special touches he did. It wasn't free exactly - I made a decent size donation to the burn victim (also named Eric) that Sal was advocating for. But that speaks to Sal's character - willing to put in extra effort to help make sure others who are less fortunate are taken care of. I think Sal raised around $1500 to $2000 in a short period - very respectable.
Sal's product is very solid. I had no qualms punching holes in my pristine bodywork to add these on. I think the angles and lines of the blades are pretty consistent with the other styling cues on the car and make a nice addition.

Thanks again Sal!
If I had to come up with constructive criticism, I would say the biggest is the white core shows through any Knicks or cuts and I suspect I'll be using plasti-dip to touch that up with the inevitable road debris (I plan on getting the mud flaps for the front someone else sells).
In sum, I'm totally satisfied - this is an excellent product at a superb value given the skill and materials required. Install was easy, the included screws and pre-positioned tape really rounded everything out as a professional product; they really look awesome in person. You easily rate 5 stars with the value, aesthetic and packaging.

I wanted to thank you for this work of art.. I absolutely LOVE it. My bodyshop installed it while fixing my nose from my 2 mph collision with an SUV. They installed your splitter on a brand new nose from Cadillac..... It looks AMAZING....
Thanks so much. I'll be ordering the rocker blades now after seeing the splitter on my car.... good lord it looks awesome... thanks again man I’ll be recommending your stuff to everyone. You did a great job on this....

Just do it!!!
Unlike some others around here who whimsically complained of excessive packaging, I found it thoughtful and appropriate. In fact, it took so long to unwrap that it reminded me of romantic foreplay. Not rushed, just sexy. So I paused for a cocktail, then I took off my shirt and continued unwrapping. When the rear blades popped out, I handled them for a while. Then I took off my pants. I continued unwrapping; slowly peeling the foam down the long rocker blades. With both blades finally exposed, I gripped one in each fist and spread them wide apart. It was time to get started screwing.
