I've been overdue for a change and a long hiatus from modding the volvo so thanks to Revolve scored a hell of a deal on the Elevate front bumper. Im in need of some washer covers (mine doesnt have the washers) in which I will paint and just glue in place.

Also added a little extra flare so mines just a bit different from the rest :D

Initial fit test:


Finished product:




Sorry crappy phone pics and sun was pretty much down so struggling to take any shots in the dark.

Looks stunning. Wish I had thought of the lower lip, it really makes this bumper stand out. That was always my gripe with the Elevate piece--you've fixed it. Glad it's found a new home.

Hey, that's look great. Now, did you paint the bumper yourself? I'm curious on how somebody goes about getting a primed bumper and then getting it painted.

Anyone put the EZ-Lip (garage door seal mod) on an OEM lower trim?

Nope, Revolve had the same paint code as me. Just buffed it and threw it on.

If u buy new and comes primered I would do the prep work myself prior to taking to a paint shop. Cuts down on overall cost plus that's what most people hack which is why paint jobs come out looking like ass. 320 and some sanding blocks goes a long way to smooth out the primer.

Yeah, there is a red S40 who did it and looked awesome. I got my seal at Home Depot for $15 just to test it out. I want to then make a carbon piece based off of this look at some point with a full splitter.

Was it the stock (non-dynamic)? Thinking about something since I don't want to shell out for a dynamic lower spoiler...

He added it right off the dynamic trim spoiler. Looked sweet and gave it less of just a pointy look

looks good, a bit dark. You have the exhaust tips behind the bumper for a sleeper look?

The whole car theme is too dark. Wasn't trying to go for the murdered out look, just happened lol.

Thus why I went burnt copper with the calipers and at some point will do polished lip w/ gold centers or if I find Advans to redrill I'll do something all gold. All around I want more color. Candy teal calipers maybe :p

The exhaust tips I did turn downs because the dynamic trim comes uncut. So I have an open canvas as to how I wanna route a custom exhaust. I'll either to left side single exit or center exit ;)
