Auto body repair & detailing/fixing my ground effect


I have a 96 chevy express van i have custom ground effect going around it but on right side ground effect is broke and its hanging how do i fix this... Thank you

Hi James,

You would need to us a epoxy repair material such as 3M 05883 Rigid Parts Repair. Here's a link where you can find it:

You can watch the following video for tips and techniques in doing the repair. The only thing different is you are dealing with a rigid ground effects and you won't need the 3M 05907 for adhesion promoter. It is only used for plastics. Other than that the repair procedure is pretty much the same.
