I just got my lip from carfashion/jdmeyes. I was wondering for the people that have the same lip, did these come pre-drilled. Mine didn't come with any drills or bolts. I'm assuming i can use my exsisting bolts and just drill the holes. Please let me know how you guys installed this. I have already test fit it and it actually lines up pretty good. I still need to purchase the gasket and get it painted, but it's pretty decent quality.

So for those who have this lip, please provide your feedback.
------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT:
Lip is finally painted and mounted. Longer bolts was needed in order to properly secure the lip from the bottom. Two self-tap screws were used to hold the sides in place (one each side). The Toyota gasket was used to keep the oem look. Here's some pictures of the painted lip with the gasket:

Gasket, two is needed (part #: 61783-35071)

NOW for the good stuff:

Figment was a bit shitty on the drive side...there was a big gap

I should have asked for my money back on mine when I bought it...it was one of the worst fits I have ever seen, even for a knock off. I spent a lot of money gettin it to fit right, but it was all a waste, as I didnt even have it on the car for a week before I pulled it and started selling it ( I didnt like the look on my car).

no pre drilled holes, no screws, just three shitily fitting pieces of plastic...I would stay away from that replica (I didnt think they were selling it anymore last time I checked the website) and get something more worth the money, but thats just me

The fitment was actually pretty good. I'll try to drill the lip tomorrow. A fellow member suggest that i keep the bumper on while drilling, i'll have to see how difficult it is to drill upside down. I'll post pictures when i get a chance.

Any one else ordered from carfashion that can give feedback.

i've had the EMR version and from my experience... almost all replica body parts are not predrilled. as for fitment it seems to be a hit or miss with the jdmeyes version. perhaps multiple molds being used and some of them are junk? well my opinion is find an EMR version instead :)

mine was predrilled (not perfectly lined up) and had longer screws. it was also test fitted at the store and was pretty good. of course, that was one of the first ones from the mold

Ya it does seem like a hit or miss thing with these replicas!

I ordered my carbon fiber wrapped TRD replica lip about 2 years ago off of ebay and the fitment was near perfect. It came predrilled and with the longer screws. The only part that didn't line up were 2 of the holes underneath at the sides... so I just slotted them...

the replicas pop up in the for sale section from time to time... just have to be patient if you want that oem look. and if you're lucky, maybe an authenic TRD lip pops up for sale.
i'm kinda bummed i sold my EMR Elegant replica :(
atleast i wasn't scraping pavement with that thing.

I am lucky i got mine in a timely manner. I have heard many negative feedback on their shipping times. Before sending my payment, i made sure that it would be shipped within a week. They assured me that they had it in stock and it would be shipped in a couple of days, that's when i agreed to send the money. Surely enough, i got my lip within a week and half. Good luck with your hunt for your lip.


Here is the direct link if you want to purchase directly from the store instead of ebay.
