Default Front Lip Installer recommendation?

So I'm looking to get these done. Are there any local installers besides Premium Auto Styling?

Don't want them painted, so I can eventually go back to stock if I want. Or change the overlays. Yours are painted, right?

Also, if I have to jimmy off and on the hatchback's interior panel AGAIN I'm going to lose my mind.

Really, sun tamers did it? Do they provide the materials or did you have to bring it all to them?

I hadn't tried them because years back they did a light smoke job on my old 350z tail lights, but screwed it up royally and I needed to leave it there for another for them to correct it. The end result was marginal.

So, Sun Tamers can and will do it, but I have to locate material first. Good to know.

The fabled Sergio has not gotten back to me since our initial convo.

Oh! Hey guys! Just checking in to see if Banky has destroyed the SCIC section yet. Appears to be intact.

Carry on.

Want to get my front lip installed correctly. I don't feel like messing with it myself. Any quick reco's for a shop that will do it quickly and cheaply?

Probably the easiest mod I did to my car. Took me a total of 30 min from start to finish.

I recommend just going for it yourself.

Or if you think you'll need a hand, you're welcome to come over and I'll do it with you.

Yeah. I might do it myself, I just don't want to manhandle any pop rivets or mess up drilling a hole.

I had my front lip installed by DTM Autobody. They did a great job.

I forget. I think he charged me $120 and he provided materials. I texted him at 909-702-5180.

Just tell him Mike with the gray WRX hatchback referred you. If you say thebanker he won't know who that is.
