Had a meet up with my local "crew". just a group for us little cars in the area.







And me doing some grinding for fixing some rubbing.



And if anyone is wondering, the blue Fiat that isn't in the other pictures if undergoing an update. crazier wheels and getting bagged.
this is what it looked like last summer.

it's adds a little stiffness. but to be honest I'll probably be taking it off as it's the lowest point in the car so it smacks on large speed bumps.

Thanks for the heads up. Trying to figure out if they're worth it. I honestly don't feel I need much more stiffness

What front lip is that? looks like from a civic? If so, how did you fit it?

EDIT:
EK front lip, I see now. Still curious, how you got it to fit so flush with the curve, heat gun? Double sided tape? Fasteners?

:D

It's screwed directly into the bumper. put them in the "ideal" spots to pull it into the shape of the car. it's not perfect but it works. there isn't much surface contact for tape unfortunaly. I would've like to use that more.

Yes self tapping screws are the best. Can't wait til mine comes in. I also have a heat gun so I know it'll be a little easier to mold it to the shape of the bumper easier

I spotted it, but didn't think to ask. I was too busy turning green from looking at the EK lip.

My friend has kids and there were little green army men that we found in the yard. I guess a buddy stuck it on there for giggles.
Good eye I totally forgot it was on there.

Custom 5mm spacers with hub to wheel CB adapting are one and I'm stoked. Really pulls the look together.

Bought them from this website.
