Got my ebay "front lip"

Hey guys my parents ordered me a front lip for christmas and i ended up finally getting it today. Its not what i expected. I thought it would be a hard material. Carbon fiber or fiberglass or something. Here is a pic of it. Here is the url http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/92-93...1%7C240%3A1318 . I was wondering if anyone has used one of these type of lips or should i send it back and get a different one. thanks guys.

i aimagine if you take a blow drier to it it will straighten out. it might take more work then its worth to mold it back though. and it might warp in the wind.

No it is fully flexable. i can bend it to the shape of the car and it will fit but i thought it would be a hard material. its like rubber / plastic.

Re: Got my ebay "front lip"

i would just put it on there man. if you really dont like the way it looks once its on then send it back. its supposed to be bendable for those retarded once-and-a-while times when u run into a curb trying to park. so im thinking its a good thing. roll with it.

Re: Got my ebay "front lip"

Don't put a blow dryer to it, let it sit out in the sun, it'll retake it's original shape. too much heat in a concentrated area may warp it. Poly urethane is the best material you could have for a lip. Fiberglass will eventually have paint crack, although it's easily repairable, it's also usually a PITA.

Re: Got my ebay "front lip"

it looks decent in the ebay pics but what you got looks like a piece of rubber. Is it like floppy? Even polyurethane isnt that flexible I wouldnt think. Most bumpers now are made of urethane and they hold their shape.
