Either that or I just buy a JUN replica bumper and call it a day.
The ebay V2 i picked up is terrible, the fitment is totally off and you cannot get the 2 halves to sit flush with each other.

I am not concerned as winter time will naturally destroy it, and force me to acquire a different lip.

The overall look of your car is more consistent in my opinion in the first photo, much prefer it even with the Letterman gap in the front :P

Did you guys try using a heat gun and all that? I feel like the fitment would be pretty easily fixable

I miss the JDM scoop sometimes, but it's completely pointless with the FMIC and only makes the hood flex while creating huge amounts of drag. If I was worried about NASIOC cool kid approval I'd make my car look like 90% of everyone else's here

Heat gun only does so much... it fit that well after a heat gun, double sided tape, and extra bolts.

Fiberglass the two pieces together. Fitment was perfect for me.

Ok guys, gonna close this one down and go to a new thread! The servers slow down when the thread reaches 10k+ posts. The admins asked for some help here.

Since I don't have one of these cars, someone start a new one with the same title and I'll put a link in this post to redirect.
