Thanks supralative, don't mind at all. One question, how did you do that, lol? I've tried doing it through attachments and through the img button with no luck.

I'll try to take the pic for you tomorrow, sun is gone already.

Good to see it in TP...I'm still on the fence about it though. Anyway we could get a side profile shot of the tail end?

I have this pic, hope it helps a bit.

If you leave it unpainted, you will be able to tell and will look unfinished. I would just paint it black with a clear coat on it.

I always wondered how it would look on a TP car. Thanks for posting the pics RegRover! It looks great. I can't wait to get mine put on in the spring

I was thinking about getting the skirts too, but it looks like it flows pretty good with the OEMs. Still undecided!

Btw those are some nice shots.

If I were doing it myself I'd get two other friends to help me. Have them hold the diffuser in place while you tape off reference points on the bumper. Apply adhesion promoter to the bumper and 3M double-sided tape to the diffuser. Then the three of you line everything up as nicely as possible and you press on and hold for like 5 mins lol. And finally screw it in at the bottom.

I'm taking mine to a shop to get painted along with my front lip, so I'll probably just get them to mount it.

Damn such a good looking car. Great picture, really shows off the diffuser. I'd definitely like to see a picture straight from behind

Thanks fellaz for the compliments but its the forum and members like you guys who share ideas and projects!

sm1ke hit it right on button, if I was to install it myself, definitely a two to three person job! I told the shop to screw mine in for security but still able to take it off when needed. Screws are the bottom part and not visible.

StackzIs, don't mind at all, bought mine through eBay. It was $150 and $30 shipping. Throught emails with the vendor, he just got this product in and sold only one so far back in November. I was his first international customer and he under estimated shipping. Right after I bought mine from him in December, he had changed the international shipping here to $80, guess I lucked out. So it cost me $180 for the lip and shipping. It was shipped USPS and custom/duty was $28. So grand total $200, money saved I used at the body shop!

I just saved them down and re-uploaded on another server and used the address with IMG tags.

Car looks good you attached a pic good enough for me to see what I was looking for.
