DIY Front Lip Spoiler

Took a shot at my own front lip, less than $50 in material and I am happy with the outcome, could use some minor adjustments.

I just grabbed a thin sheet of plastic from Menards near the paint section and adhered the pieces with superglue. Then just used bondo to make the shape on the front. It's attached by 4 screws underneath in the original bumper spots and then some double sided tape on the front.

This reminds me of the CRT 1M lip that Einser M had. Awesome job.

Did you keep the template by chance? This looks like a fun project and a good way to practice working with bondo.

So I made some adjustments with V1 and used the same double sided tape... Mistake it ripped off on me going 40mph and I ran it over.

Here is V2, also finished my headlights. I have a template for the tint if anyone wants me to mail them one.

Looks great man. Got a couple ideas for that template you sent me. Hopefully I'll have some good weather and free time to start working on it this weekend!

Still holding strong! Just got the winter setup on so we will see if it can take on the snow and ice this winter.

Weird...so my buddy Ryan lived in that same complex as you. I think I met you in passing there.

You recently moved into a house near my brothers', I stopped and talked to you when you were washing the 1er that day. Small world!
