Thanks to my boy NeverSummer aka Dave I'll be sporting a new BaysonR front lip tomorrow! Only cost $12.48 👍

I heated it all up and straightened out bends today. The heatgun practically did all the work.

Also threw the cheap sheet metal screws for mounting it into the trash where they belong lol! I picked up some M6x1/4" bolts/nuts/washers for a proper install and also drilled the holes in the lip out to 3/16" which will allow for some play and perfect fitment of the lip to bumper.

I ran out of daylight today, and still have to drill the holes in the bumper so install will have to be tomorrow. I'll be sure to post pics.

Lmao, Adair! My house is quite old and has HUGE granite stones for a foundation. A lot of the houses in the NE are like that. That's also the reason it leaks like a siv too!

But the Entrance to the bat cave is behind my fireplace. I wouldn't give away my secrets like that. Oh wait, I just did 😜

V2 looks good IMO Keith.

I threw my screws away too and bought clips to match the rest at autozone. Install was less than a half hr total. Because I used factory style push clips, to take it off will take maybe five- ten minutes.

I used the clips that are like the ones on top your grill for quick reference, same as under tray.

Sorry for the delay, but I've just been sick since like Saturday. Still not feeling the greatest but I couldn't wait to install this another day lol!

After some fine tuning after install with the heat gun, this thing practically looks molded! Thanks again NeverSummer!

Thanks guys. It def takes some finesse to get it looking perfect. Certainly not an easy bolt on and go kinda thing. Although nothing ever is with me lol!

I'm gonna do some more tweaking this weekend. Kinda ran outta light today but wanna try and get the front of the lip forward a bit more.

That's why I like this one though. I'm not a fan of the ones that stick out like an inch from the bumper...just looks weird. Should just buy a body kit at that point lol! But I like the V-Limited cause it's only really noticeable in the middle of the bumper. Looks clean....

I do wanna pull the corners of the "mouth" out just about a 1/4" though to make it just barely stick past the bumper. I made the holes larger than my bolts so I can do it easily...just need daylight.
