Hi!
Anyone ever made his/her own lip? I really like the GV lip but I have a 07 and the DAMD lip is a bit much for my liking.

Being a total noob at this I think it could be made with a bit of patience...

1- Make a negative mold of the front bumper out of foam (lower part)
2- Make a fiberglass replica of this portion out of the foam
3- Make a lip out of high density foam on on the fiberglass bumper replica
4- Shave the lip to the wanted shape (ok, everything could go wrong here...)
5- Remove the foam lip from the fiberglass bumper.
6- Fiberglass the lip
7- Putty
8- Sand
9- Prime
10- Paint...

Am I dreaming....

I might be in for making my own trunk spoiler since no one makes what I want.

I doubt with all the work and money that you could put into a front lip that you would be satisfied with the end results.

I’d save for the GV...

i'm assuming he has a 07 hatch since he mentioned the damd lip. if that's true, no point in saving for the GV lip since it doesn't fit 07+ hatches lol
