ground effects

Is there any way to fix cracks in my ground effects besides replacement? Can't afford them right now. The previous owner had the car lowered and now there are cracks on each corner.

Yes you can fix the crack. I did it on my passenger side rs kit. I used a plastic epoxy stick. I cleaned up the cracked area on both sides. Kneaded the epoxy and pushed into the crack and spread it on the inside and out side. Let harden sand and use pin hole filler to get the small holes.

I had a crack in my new bumper when I got it, I used flexible bumper repair epoxy, put some fiberglass to reinforce it to make it harder to recrack.
