hey..my friend did this a couple days ago...he bought a strip of fiberglass from home depot and painted it and clamped it to the bottom of the front bumper...it actually doens't look bad...he just needs to paint it with more coats and it'll match his car exactly...what do you guys think of this...i was thinking of taking my little stock lip off and doing this...and make a bigger lip...

Can this also work for 98 and above tegs? If so, can someone please create an article on how to do this yourself.

virtualbong...he told me it was not that difficult...just bend the fiberglass slowly to the shape of your bumper...i think i will do it...and i was also wondering if it would work for side skirts and a rear skirt..

i did the garden edging thing and it was sick actually, the only problem is that we did it in december and the cold weather plus tapping a curb snapped it and therefor it is gone for good, well till the next one, you can curve it to the body with a torch it actually works out pretty well, my buddy use to make his own body kits out of bumpers doing this and they always came out pretty good for homemade

Oooh, I'd have to use a torch to bend the fiberglass? This could be a little too risky for my liking, though I'm still interested. I am also interested if this would work out as side skirts and rear lip. If anyone has done this, please let us know, thanks!

Damn, that doesnt look bad at all! I think Im gonna go check out home depot and put this on one of these days.

Ya, how did he secure it? It seems like he used nails or something... I dont feel like putting in a bunch of whatever he put in, how sticky is that 3M double sided tape?
