Default installing splitters and lip onto Wagon

I have looked over the DIY installs, and tried it but with 0 luck. So i am coming here for help possibly, the bumper is off and its a Wagon bumper, hope this isn't discouraging. The splitters have seen better days...the lip is new. Let me know if you could be of service

Yeah your kinda stuck. In situations like these typically I suggest PM'ing Hoffman Estates cause he's the best at it. Somehow I don't think that will work this time.

What are you looking to do? STi splitters with a lip? I installed the splitters on my 05 WRX wagon. I removed the tab on the backside and fit them using body clips similar to the ones on the splash guard.

If you're looking to install a lip, I have done this but would like to. If we are saying that the sedan lips won't fit (TWSS) then I guess I'm going to look at fabbing my own. Garage door seal lip?

I had to drill holes in my bumper to attach the splitters. I attached them at the wheel week first and the around the front. I also used the red 3M tape.

Can you snap some pictures?

What splitters and lip you installing...I know you know better than to use anything made for a sedan. What exactly are you installing: aftermarket? homedepot diy? btw hta subaru sells a knock off prodrive replica lip , wagon specific, for about 2.5 bills shipped I think.
pics and better description (for me anyways ) would give me a better idea on how to help.
this some home deleo you doin?
Thought i'd torture you and all other wagon'eers... why does this **** pop up when Im broker than broke. I seen the rear compliment around ebay a few times
but the front doesnt come up as much.... damn money pits!

Drool.....

Sedan splitters can be trimmed to fit the wagon bumper quite easily. There's a YouTube video tutorial... With a few exceptions almost anything made for the sedan can work for the wagon as far as aesthetic mods are concerned...
