Wasn't the Fujin lip available in poly? Unless you are talking about pre-97 designs?

Fujin is poly but it's not a mass production meaning there were only a few made and after they sell there will be no more. We need one that is mass produced for our cars and will stay on the market like Honda lips.

The Fujin lip may not be a mass production lip, BUT it's still being produced. I just bought one last week, and their ebay listing still says there are more than 10 available. Just a heads up

Don't worry, at the rate SC's are going right now, (meaning the kind of owners that own them right now) SC's will eventually get some riced out attention like Honda's and what not...

I doubt rice will ever be used in the same sentence as a SC but we do need a stable production of parts and not 20 lips that sell out and never get heard from again.

For the area I live in Urethane is perfect and I love the bumper with the cross hatch. Gives it a clean agressive factory appearance. I kinda like being able to hide my fmic

From what I hear, Urethane would be the most durable. How durable would the carbon be?

Anyways, who would be interested in getting AC body kits from y'all when Shine Auto Project have perfected the fit and shape of it already and for a cheaper price than what you're projecting?? (To OP)

I agree...we need poly lips that flow with the OEM body styling. The Fujin lip from Rideskinz is the only lip out so far for the 97-00 front but is a limited production. Mass production would be great.
