I got http://bit.ly/zZPY4D, which should atleast help minimize the scraping to the front bumper, all i really care about at this point. It looks pretty good though and mounting brackets don't look to be in secure places so we'll see...i'll post pics once installed.

Yeah I just installed that lip a few weeks ago. Only some of the holes line up, and the hardware provided wasn't very good. The washers that came with mine were too small, so they would go right through the hole. I ended up buying larger washers. I also drilled a few more holes to make things more secure. Overall it fits pretty well. Can't beat it for $125.

Lip went on today, woot! Hopefully it will save my bumper from the abuse it's taken thus far. I'll work on getting better pics up but this will have to do until I can get some with my SLR.

Just ran across this thread and I'm stoked someone did the vent mods on the front end. I was thinking of doing the EXACT same thing but I was curious how wrapping the foglight piece went. Is it possible to just paint it when doing the vents, or do you like the wrap better? BTW I'm a Seattle guy myself. Glad to see some people repping the PNW here! Great looking ride!

Hey, thanks for the kind words. I would recommend just painting both the vents and the fog light covers... It will be both easier and look more flush. Its relatively easy too with just Krylon Fusion paint,.just do several coats and try to do it as evenly as possible. Also, PlastiDip works really well too and holds up nice, pretty durable stuff!

It's pretty easy, just a few clips hold them in place. I'd access it via the front wheel wells, just remove the pins and fold back a bit so you can slip your hand through.

Good luck dude

i hear ya, but i prob would have just gone with new wheels if I wanted to do the flush look. putting spacers on that big is pretty bad for your car but if you don't mind i guess go for it.

i mean, i felt bad about using 3mm spacers on my rears cause those 11 wrx wheels won't clear the strut on my fozzy otherwise...but if you're using something as wide as that photo then i'd feel bad for whoever buys your car when you're done with it.

Yeah figured it would be pretty simple. Pulled those suckers out and gave them a good dose of Krylon Fusion. Worked like a charm if you ever feel like redoing the foglight pieces. And the accents look fantastic after giving her a well deserved bath as well.

I've wanted to wrap the hood in Gloss Black vinyl for a while now because i've loved the look on all cars that come with it OEM nowadays (Kia, Lexus, Audi, Mercedes, etc...) so I finally pulled the trigger. I like it a lot and think it looks really clean, looks to me like it should be an option to add from dealer.









No plans fo rnext steps as of yet...just bought a house so trying to save money!
