After two hours of eating supper, its back in front of me.



haha but on a serious note, Im not a big fan of it. Your car would look much better without the home depot lip on the Greddy lip and without the bra.

Also, is that the Greddy lip or the VIS replica because I thought the Greddy lip was only for JDM front bumpers?

It doesn't look like it's on strait and some double side tape is showing through. Maybe it would look decent on a bumper which the bottom is flat, but the greddy lip has a dip in the middle and makes the home depot lip look out of place on the bends

Could be played off, but I hate how the double sided tape peeks through in some areas. With everyone I've seen who uses this home depot stuff, it's all the same with the tape. I never seen it put on cleanly and with the way they fit, I don't think it could.

Just doesn't look right for some reason.

Why not take it off and just lower it more?

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.

I think it'll look better if you do the home depot lip over the gap in between only
