I couldn't agree more: best looking (and dirt cheap) mod ever!

I ended up using glue for mine though, 3M tape wasn't sticky enough even after thorough cleaning.

This mod adds a little 'je ne sais quoi' to the front of my 99 AEB tip black wagon, love it!

From an aesthetics standpoint, it looks great in the pictures I've seen so far. :thumbup: For that alone, it's worthwhile.

From a functional standpoint, does it maintain shape at high speeds or does it get folded under by the air pressure? You'd need to have someone in another car (with a spotter) drive along side you at highway+ speeds to know.

If you get a chance to try this, post up your observations. Please don't get in an accident trying this. It's not really that important.

Ya know.....I've had a C-Bar, named after it's maker, so I've dubbed this....the "Gordo lip". Super easy and turned out great! Now...If I could only make my driveway less of a 60 degree angle......
