    Installed the new lips and painted oem sideskirts. Now the porcupine damage is coverered up on the front :)
    Taillights are here and tinted but I was sent the wrong type of bulbs. So I'm trying to hunt down some red bulbs. I'm hoping the import shop here will have them, because walmart and the auto stores here don't.
    I also ran out of time to put in my grill, but I should get it done tomorrow.
    I'm also working on adjusting the rear lip. It's a little off still, but it was much worse earlier. It needs a lot of different braces to keep it in place.
    Overall I'm VERY happy with the results. I just wish my front bumper would be repainted so everything matched better.

    What i say next is only to be perfectly honest.

    I think the front front bumper looks as though theres a missing Hole or cut out on each side of it and the lil wing tip things that come off the lip on the left and right side look a lil rice, i personly think a lip with smoother cleaner lines would have been a better choice. On the other hand the back and sides look nice. :thumbsup:

    uh, that's the factory grill. i said in my first post that i'm installing that tomorrow.

    thanks for the comments. most of the stuff was funded by the insurance money from hitting that porcupine on the highway a few weeks back.

    nope, just replaced it because it is cheap to get stuff painted all at once.

    the grill does have black mesh in it, you just can't see it in the pictures.
    and the taillights aren't as dark as they look. they let out pretty good light, too. it was a pain to find red bulbs tho.
    again, thx for the kind words =)
