I may be wrong, but it looks like a 2000ish Civic lip.

Yep it's a modified 2000 Civic lip. Just looked for the cheapest lip I could find on eBay. My car gets battered on the highway so I go through lips often.

Any major modifications to get installed?
Fitment looks decent in the pic... it's decent in person?

Yeah there's a decent amount of cutting, heating, bending, etc. involved in getting it on but it's nothing too difficult. Any urethane lip will work, I used an EG Civic lip before this one because it was cheaper at the time. As for fitment, it really comes down to how much time you have to put into it.

In a nutshell, trim the top that normally screws into the civic bumper and then get a heat gun and start bending it to the shape of your bumper. Grab a few self tapping screws to hold it on and you're done. If you plan it out right, you can screw it into the bumper from the bottom so you don't see any of them. I was short on time with this one so I just screwed the lip onto the bumper from the front and sides. Not noticeable from afar because they're black but you can see them for sure if you're looking for them.

If you look at my car up close it's far from perfect but my bumper is also mangled from an accident so I didn't put too much effort into making the lip fit absolutely perfectly to my imperfect bumper. Also, I go through these things every few months with all the construction on the highway so I don't invest too much time or money into any lip I make. I look at these as throw-away items since it's on the bottom of the car and gets smacked into everything so I never spend more than $20 on a lip

If you want a way easier option, garden edging works nicely and looks decent. Only issue I had with it, when I single layered it, it would flex on the highway. Put some backing on it for rigidity and it's good to go. I use the 4" tall version with the sort of rounded bump edge. Heat it up then flip it upside down so the part that goes in the ground is screwed or zip tied to the underside of the bumper. Way less cutting and easier to mold to the bumper. Don't think I have any pictures of this one if it's not in the thread; sorry. Anyways hope this helps!

How did you handle the ends of the lip? Since the civic lip is a lot longer than the Yaris front, I had to shorten the two ends and cap them.

I cut the lip down to fit. On my first one I reused the ends I cut off and blended them back onto the lip but it took a lot of time to get it right. After the first one got destroyed I didn't bother going through the hassle since it's only a matter of time before I break the replacement. The highways around me are always under construction so my bumper gets beat up quite a bit.

No problem, glad I could help. Really like your build thread, hoping to swap to a 2zr next year as well.
