i haven't made one myself personally but i've read sumwhere that you could try making a mold of the lip out of 3/4in plywood and use a sheet of g.i. steel of aluminum sheet then try hammering it with a rubber mallet til it molds on to the wood. hope this helps.

How do you mount your custom lip to your ride?

Good timing... i was just finished fabricating the mount. Its the same as the hakosuka's lips. How i did was temporary screwing the lip to the lower valance using three small mounting brackets out of sheet metal and lay 2 layers of fiberglass sheet on it. Brush the resin onto it and wait it to dry tomorrow. When its done put putty on it to smooth it and its done! Ready for painting.

Too bad my camera's broken and i cant take pics of it. My fon's camera is not that good anyways... will post the pics some other time :wink:

PathFindeR,

good idea you got there. BTW, once the lip is completed, will the lips be painted to match your car, or leaving it black?

Great work! Any chance you'd make another and ship to the states? lol.

I kind of like the US front mx32 bumper personally. It doesn't stick out too awefully far really, and kind of cleans up the front. The rear bumper on the other hand is an eye sore and a half :P.

shane, id be happy to. Ill post new pics when its done painted and installed and let me know if you still want it. Bear in mind its not gonna be anytime soon coz i can only work on my car on weekends.

I like JDM front and rear bumpers compared to USDM. The JDM ones are 1 piece chromies compared to USDM's ones which has rubber protectors on its side. :)

I cut the brackets down about 3" on my rear bumper to tuck it in closer to the body, kind of cleaned it up a bit, but it's still the ugliest bumper to come out of japan since the 521 rear step :P.

It's funny how this thread went from a poor guy looking for a front lip for his Civic to USDM vs. JDM bumpers.

I wonder if he gave up his search for the front lip after this. LOL :lol:

contact my cousin Ramon. He makes custom metal lips just like this one in the picture. Most of the cars displayed in PJ Bonifacio's booth have his masterpiece. He is located in Southern California

His email is: dadste27@yahoo.com
