DIY custom lip (crap phone pic)

Nothin' like $15, half an hour worth of work. Beats paying a few hundred dollars for a lip that you will eventually rip off, if this tears off no big deal.<br>Now I just need my R bumper grilles to get here and it'll be set for a bit....til front mount.<br><IMG SRC="http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y156/livingendpunk/mail-1-11.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>

So, what's the $15 lip made of and how did you put it on? I would say, get the spray can for your car, and scuff up the lip with some sand paper, use primer on it first and then spray it down before putting it on...would then match and look much nicer.

Garage door seal (weatherstriping) is what its made of. It is held on with little screws and 3M double sided extra strength tape. It is a foam material so I can't really paint it unless I want it to crack. It's black along with my other trim parts on the car. <p>and thanks chilled man, for some reason it looks just the same though.
