I'm bored + I have no money = bring on the ricer mods!<p>Tackled the garage door seal lip mod today. Word to the wise...buy black double sided tape. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> Now I need to go back and eithe re-do it, or paint the existing tape black where it's visible. Oh...did I mention I'm a lazy ass, so it'll probably stay like that until someone says something to me about it?<p>Anyway...here it is:<p>Before:<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/kmags/Volvo%20S60%20R/006.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>After:<p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/kmags/Volvo%20S60%20R/001-3.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/kmags/Volvo%20S60%20R/002-2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/kmags/Volvo%20S60%20R/002-2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/kmags/Volvo%20S60%20R/003-3.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/kmags/Volvo%20S60%20R/005-4.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>

I'm not sure about looking awesome, but to a passer-by it looks pretty decent. Even my wife thought it looked pretty good, and she is the original anti-rice.

We agreed that her next car is going to be a 911. Well used of course.<p>I built a 92' civic hatch up from nothing way back when...although it ran low 14's, was cheap, got good mileage, and actually looked pretty decent, she wasn't a fan. She appreciates good handling and speed, but won't sacrifice safety and a nice interior to get it. That's why she denied my WRX/Evo purchase...no matter how much a whined. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: rebirth of the garage door seal front lip (kmagnuss)

I noticed you used white double-sided tape. It looks kind of tacky. You should have used black double-sided tape. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (kmagnuss)

Great concept, but I think it will "plow" thru the air at speed, and eventually fall off your car. It looks like it will act like an air scoop, and the tape won't hold...

Also, I added stainless screws and washers to give it some extra strength.

Re: (Tiny)

I really do like the look of the lower lip however I wonder if IPD would be interested coming up with a more polished "production" version of this mod.

That looks awesome! - Need to fix the tap but otherwise cool. Not too ricer either!

Re: rebirth of the garage door seal front lip (brbevil)

Any particular type or brand of garage door tape you used?
