Can you put up some more pics of your setup? I'd like to do this without drilling if possible.

did this last night - looks great - thanks for the write up! At some point I may replace foam with nylon spacers. My foam wasn't as dense as yours and didn't work all that well

Alright as promised... V2 lip on the bug eye....

first off it took me 1 hour to do the V1 lip... 3.5 hours to do the V2, mainly impart that it was 98 degrees on saturday and i wasnt rushing at all, and i was trying to make it as perfict as possible(still minor imperfections but will work that out later...)

well here she is... it was hard trying to get it to be level all the way around and make the hump in the middle look like it wasnt there. i got close to it but as you can see the hump of the front is hard to make go away.

well here she is...

V1 lip.


V2 lip






doing the V2 lip isnt that much harder than doing the V1.
it just takes ALONG time to double back tape them together and get it screwed up so its even all the way across.
i used a different type of foam than the original idea(seat foam out of a pad you get at football games and races, only because it was what i had laying around)
i also double sided taped the top of the lip to the bumper.
if you want any different pics let me know and i can snap them and upload them for ya'

I concur. You get an 'A' for effort for trying out the V2 for the sake of all the bugeye drivers, but your V1 definitely looks better.

As I suspected, the "brake ducts" on the bugeye mess it up. Wonder how this will looking on a Prodrive lip though. (Thinking it should look decent, and protect it too.

What about STi Splitters? I really want to have a rubber door seal front lip like this to prevent it from scraping the splitters? I don't think the v1 looked too good, so v2 might look worse...or better? Not sure. Hopefully someone can do this and take many pictures.

hmmmmmm.......... I was planning on this "diy v2" lip this weekend for my bugeye. I think with the help from my "macguyver" subie mentor we can make it work. Or... make it better!

If we do happen to get into this this weekend and we come up with a certified B.A. bugeye lip, we'll be sure to post it up.

yes sir it was the brake ducts that i had to work around.
also the curve of the side of the bumper just dosnt let the lip "bend" around it.

If we do happen to get into this this weekend and we come up with a certified B.A. bugeye lip, we'll be sure to post it up.
it will be hard to get it to bend around the fornt corners of bumper right(why i double sided taped the lip to the bumper also) also the brake ducts are lower than 04+ so they will give you a problem getting low enough to not block them. it was a pain to do compared to the V1 lip.


im going to go to lowes this weekend and walk around and see what eles i might be able to come up with.(ive seen a 06-07 sti on here that had brick molding...), also i will try to find something simular to the rubber/foam garage door molding but lower mabey... idk well see what i come up with.

This is mine, it is ridged plastic behind the garage door seal, I can get some better pics of someone wants.

The sides are even, the right side looks funny but its just the lighting.
