Thanks for all the kind words guys! It's nice to hear pos or neg feedback too since it was a new project.
I give you major props, I have that same lip and i'm glad somebody was thinking outside the box. Now yes the lip flows better with the stock bumper setup but that can be fixed either way I love your creativity and nobody can really say anything because that bumper is basically a one-off creation and if you ever sold it you would definately get your money for it.

This is very nice. I would not mind buying one if you made some and sold them.

Thanks a lot man. The idea was all Cesar's(mex lex). I just helped him design it and bring it to life :-) The lip definitely looks better on a stock bumper, thats for sure haha. Like I mentioned before, we may end up sanding the lip a bit but we'll see.

I'm not sure how popular they would be if I did make a few and sell em. I've got a set of Camry fog light housings I may try next. They look close to the rx fogs but a little longer. Between getting the bumper, the used donor bumper for a set of fog light housings, materials to make it happen, paint and lots of time....these bumpers would be pretty pricey! Haha

Make and throw it out there for all you know it could turn into nice side income maybe even a small business.

I cant believe i took this long to look into this thread. That is some really good work. Sell PUFF the lip that way two GS' can benefit from this ^_^ cause the bumper by itself stands out as is. The masking on the bars came out great.
