Clean...

I'm guessing you didn't have any screws holding the front lip on? Just tape? (it's OK.. the color match looked way off lol)

Clean build! I purchased the same exact wheel specs but varrstoen es6's. What tire sizes are you running if you don't mind me asking?

Looking real nice man! Planning on running the same setup. Was actually looking into coilovers right now. How do you like those form functions? And how are your alignment specs without kits?

Function forms ride a whole lot better than my bc IMO! As for my lip kit it's been sitting in the garage awaiting paint!
