It is actually an EZ Lip from ebay, I'm really happy with how it looks. Turned out way better than I expected. I only took it around the block once so Ill report with more findings on the sway bar. I have the sway bar set in the middle setting. I do notice that the front end doesn't plow into the corners and the back end is more willing to come out. I'll be out for some more aggressive driving tomorrow and I'll tell you what I think!

Did you just stick it on or did you actually screw it on (EZ Lip)?

Kinger! I'm glad to see you ended up with those wheels, they're pretty. I'm considering getting my wheels powder coated gloss black with some red metal flake. The green is gorgeous, and the fog light covers to match are a nice touch. It's good to see folks with some serious attention to detail!

I may have missed it, but what's your specs on the size for those wheels and tires? I have some 17x7.5's +48 on mine right now with some 225/45's.

Very nice. Figuring on keeping the same size for my next set, but may bump it to 17x8.

My Grille Wings are sanded/painted black to match the rest of my grille, but I might experiment and see if I like the Carbon Fiber look on there as well. I've got a 5-Door, so I think doing a Carbon Fiber roof would be too much. Looks much better on the sedan with window tint IMHO.
Yes definately experiment. I removed the wings and wrapped it all around with the cf. Its a cleaner look.

I had to put the cf right over top the trim without removing it. I dont know how to remove the silver trim. It doesnt look like its going to budge and I didnt wanna try prying it out.

I used scissors and a dull letter opener to cut the cf. There are perfect groovings right on the trim/dash to cut the cf perfectly without being concerned about cutting the dash up. I didnt use a cutter cuz its too sharp. Give it a shot. Its quite easy.

No wedging required. Just cut the cf right where the silver trim meets the dash. It looks pretty clean. The grooving helps cut the cf evenly.

Thanks man!!! My thoughts exactly. The red trim and the cf goes hand in hand. It does pop

Same. Thats why I did this option. I didnt wanna spend 300 bucks on a grill.

Thanks Wes, I don't have Sparco seats, unfortunately. Sparco decal is because my rims are Sparco.

Picked up the EZ Lip for $35, here is the link (There is a make offer option, I offered $30 and it was accepted)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/170971912234...84.m1497.l2649


I didn't upgrade endlinks, it is on the to-do list when funds become available...


Btw I am thinking of taking your idea of the red trim on the inside dash, but instead using green to continue my theme...

What about a roll of garage door trim at Home Depot for $15? It's essentially the same thing I would think.

This thread has also made me seriously reconsider waiting to put the rear spoiler on my car... Might have to make a trip to the parts department sooner, rather than later.

Yes, just go to Home Depot / Lowes and buy the garage door bottom lip stuff. It's literally the same package you buy for the "EZ Lip", but cheaper. lol

Did you also use the stock bolts or does perrin provide new bolts?

Thanks for the info on the lip.

Great idea on the green theme on the dash! that'll look hot!
