JDM lip kit fitment.

Hi

I am about to buy a JDM lip kit for my 2001 Prelude.
But I noticed in the picture of it that the rear bumper is different to my stock one.
Is this going to matter ? Will it still fit on my rear bumper ?


..and out of curiosity, where are people getting those custom cartoon Preludes from in their sigs ? Very cool :)

Thanks.

My car is the blue one btw :)

Ive got my new wheels on the way, the rear spoiler and now I`ll grab the JDM kit (like that shown on the white car) and get the windows tinted. Then I`ll post some shots when its done.

The bumper guards on my car are already gone :)

I've decided not to get this kit after all.
Firstly its fibreglass which I didnt initiall have a problem with but looking at the feedback for the seller, there seems to me a few people complaining about the items arriving cracked and badly sanded etc..

So Im going for the polyurethane Wings West body kit instead.
Its $100 more but I believe polyurethane is a better option anyway.

I didnt get it in the end, I bought the Wings West kit.

However, the JDM one (which they say is a durable fibreglass composite) is here on Ebay.

YOu can get the OEM kit from Honda and it's polyurethane. Fiberglass ones are just replicas, and obviously not as good of quality.

What is the better choice? The OEM-polyurethane kit and the Mugen bodykit?
Ive been thinking of either one! Anyone who can tell me about the fit on the kits?


(f**k my english sucks) :)

the problem with the mugen bodykits is that they are both insanely RARE, and insanely EXPENSIVE.
however, there are replicas being made for the 5th gens which are made out of fiberglass which isn't the most ideal materials to make it out of, but if you take care of it should be fine.

ok, thanks! I found a Mugen bodykit (replica????) a wellknown stylingshop in Sweden who sells this Mugen-kit for 1000 usd. Its pretty cheap because to my last Lude my Wings west-kit cost me about 2000 usd.

But they said on their site that the fit is 3 out of 10. But good finish 8/10
