fiberglass OEM lip kit anyone?

so i thought i was getting a crazy good deal when i bought this fiberglass OEM Option lip kit off a guy but i think its more hassle than its worth. just wondering if anyone else had the fiberglass kit and i was seeing what you did to get it on right. the sides aernt to much of a problem i can probably get those on, but my big concern it the rear lip. it seems to big and it left gaps all around it. theres also not really a place where i can use self tapping screws to fasten it down.

anyone know anything?

Re: fiberglass OEM lip kit anyone?

A fibreglass copy of the oem lip kit will probably have the same problems as most fibreglass bodykit components. Ie, they rarely fit properly, the paint finish on them is rarely any good (since fibreglass is a lot harder to get right) and they don't move. So if you park too close to a gutter or something with your genuine OEM lip, it will only mark the paint; but park too close to the same gutter with a fibreglass copy, and you'll leave half of your lip there.
