In our last edition of Project 987.2 Porsche Cayman S, we discussed the components from Verus Engineering that we would be using to get an honest 1000 lbs of downforce at 120 mph with minimal drag from our car. In this segment, we will be showing the installation of the parts.
The first step for installation was to apply the drilling template for the canards. Verus supplies a stick-on template that makes the hole drilling location a lot easier.
With the template in place, the hole locations were confirmed with the actual part.
The holes were marked in the bumper plastic with a spring-loaded center punch.
Then the holes were carefully started with a drill countersink bit.
Once the holes were marked, the templates were removed and the holes drilled. Note the tape used to prevent the drill bit from over penetrating and damaging stuff behind the bumper. All of the holes drilled for installing the kit used this technique.
