If u can buy it from absdynamics.com, buy it. make sure its the white one. mine doesn't look cheap, everyone asks me how much i spent, and they are surprised when i say $60.00. Mine is not even painted yed, and it still looks good.

Which is the best material to use? ABS platic or poly-somthing... If the fitment does suck , will a simple hard dryer from your home help to mold it to shape?

Also , how did you guys attach the lips, it looks great. (tape only or with screws and tape.)

Peace,

Polyurathane is probably the best. Thats what a lot of kits are made out of. The knockoff kits are the ones made from abs plastic and fiberglass. I tried with a hairdrier, but it definetally was impossable. Ive heard people on this board do it with a simple hairdrier, but for me, it was impossable. So i took it to a shop and we put the car on a lift and worked on the lip for about 3 hours. We made clips and screws and put tape. I dident get my lip from ABSDYNAMICS.COM though so that could of been my problem.

I recently saw this lip in the Pomona area, again on a white is300. I was worried about the fitment on a light colored car because with a black car, you could get away with a big fat gap between the bumpers. Anyway i was quite surprised to see that it actually lines up very well, almost factory finish. I just want to ask is ABSdynamics the first one to come up with this or is there even a MORE original version?
