Thanks!

Its the EZ lip. I read up on it and mocked it up on the bumper before applying.

There are lots that doesn't look that great so i had to plan my steps haha.

People said if you put a little effort in applying it, it can turn out great.

Some people won't like the ez lip but I like how it turned out.


Something I’ve learned from modifying my cars for the past 20 years. Get inspiration from others, but know what you like and take pride in what you’ve done.

It looks good but you don’t have to take my word for it

Mine is or will be all cosmetic mods, like taking off all the lettering and stuff off of the back. Tints, floor mats, mud guards and blacking out the grill. I don't want to mess with it too much since it brand new and the wife said I need to keep this for a while. :grin2:

Ooh yah. My back is debadged. And it looks so good!

Also have rally armor mudflaps, led license plate lights, led headlights, led light strips in the front (where the fogs are suppose to be), window visors, and limo tint (5%).

All my old cars have full exhaust but I think I won't be doing anything to the engine for this car.

My civic had I/h/e/tbs/ flashpro hondata tuned and was very quick. Don't think that will do much on this car tho haha.

Just take turns fast XD.

Mine will be cosmetic too. Window visors, mudflaps, led license plate bulb, and license plate relocate kit is next. My rear is also debadged and added a red strip and switch out my reverse lights to LED and sun strip on front windshield. The emblem overlays are recent too.

Its cool...I had the front lip on a few months back until one side started to peel off. Also, have to remember not to park forward too much while parking esp near the sidewalks and watching out for dips.
What will be the best way for the EZ lip to hold up better? The 3M adhesive doesn’t seem to be strong enuf. Thinking of applying a new one and something to let it hold up better into place.

That is why I went with the All Fit Automitive lip, it came with self tapping screws and washers to help make sure the lip will fit snug. It also came with some pre-stick solution for the 3m tape to stick better. Im sure you can go to your local hardware store to find you some self tapping screws and washers and install them. Not many people are a fan on drilling into the bumper, but for me its just the bottom and noone sees it. The bottom of the bumpers get tore up without a lip so figured some screws to hold support a lip would be a better solution.

Thanks for suggestion, I think that would work best.

For mine, I cleaned the application area with rubbing alcohol and its been really good. I also have 2 stainless steel clips, 1 on each end of the front bumper. Seems to be doing their job right now.

Also during the install. The ends of the lip at the edges would be creased or wavy. I made sure to cut off those portions when installing. Also gotta make sure to leave enough though.
