NEW TRD VIS REPLICA LIP! Techno R

Hey guys I decided to take a gamble and bought a TRD replica front lip from the VISracing website, since i was not able to find a legit USDM lip. The lip is listed as Techno R on the website and looks very similar to the TRD but fits on a USDM is300. So if you guys are wondering how the lip looks like, I was, Here it is! let me know what you guys think

Some rubber gasket will solve the gap problem. Pretty good fitment.

I could be wrong, but did the Original TRD design fold on to the lower grille like that?
I kinda it just went straight across. I think this VIS design may be more supportive IDK.

i got the lip for 140 shipped from these guys that owns a shop here in san jose. did i really get ripped? haha.

I think i will do the weather strip to fill in the gaps a bit. but do you guys think its going to look weird for the center part, where it bends into the lower grill?

It only looks weird if you know what the original looks like haha. The JDMEyes rep fit like poo, but it is still my favorite since it looks like the original. Too bad it's discontinued.
