    How is this done again? I think some of the CT guys did/do it. I'm bored and need a cheap project to keep me busy. Pics would be great too. I kind of forget what it looks like, but its gotta look better then the scraped, chipped, stock bottom of my front bumper.Thanks in advance guys.

    do a google search for DIY front lip.. there is a lot out there.. seems people use the black garden edging stuff (black rubber), and just rivet it in or something

    Yea, I like the third the best. 1st and 3rd are garden trim, and the 2nd is a seal for the bottom of a garage door. I like the garden trim but I have to figure out how they did it without the hardware showing.

    Yea I have some interviews this week so I probably won't get around to trying it until Thursday. For $20 bucks it's worth it to see what it will look like. If it's absolutely terrible I'll be "forced" to do a 98+ conversion.
