Ebay P1 front lip with stock base skirts/rear

I'm planning on buying a P1 lip from Ebay sometime this week. It's unpainted PU but has a gloss look to it not painted gloss but not a flat ugly black. My question is would it look good with my base skirts and rear? I've seen one silver lude with the base skirts with the lip but I want more opinions. Also could I DIY paint them to math the front lip? Or paint them all without a cheap unprofessional look to it?
Thanks!
Here's a link to the lip
97-01 HONDA PRELUDE H22A PU FRONT BUMPER LIP SPOILER 99 | eBay
Also Look at the white prelude down the page not the main picture of the black prelude, you can see it much better with it.

Re: Ebay P1 front lip with stock base skirts/rear

It'll look ok since it's just the front but the OEM sides and rear would look much smoother. The P1 is nearly as tall as an OEM front lip but not quite. Painting the stock sides though - i'm not too sure because of the finish on them as is... you can get your exact paint match in a spray can at Touch Up Paint from PaintScratch.com


Also, the white lude is the only one they advertise that has the correct lip. As I said in the last thread - that black lude is not the P1 lip. It is a mugen front bumper with a P1 photoshopped onto it.

Re: Ebay P1 front lip with stock base skirts/rear

^I bought my sides from them in EBP and 3 days later the site said sold out.

my opinion: that lip looks cheap on Ludes. but hey, it's your car, and if you like it, go for it. It looks better when color-matched, but to me, it still doesn't look great.

Damn you got lucky and probably got the last set. I was going to order them and got side tracked then they were gone. I got lucky though and found some onr selling a brand new full oem lip kit and bought it.

That's straight love right here. Just bought one in black. I was going to buy a Type S used spoiler but I haven't been able to find a clean one (I'm super picky) but this is even better. A brand new OEM front lip. They don't have the Pearl White but hell it's an OEM Honda part, I'll just get it painted along with a few other things..

I was looking at that lip too on eBay.. Any suggestions on other eBay lips? Are any of them really worth it?

I picked mine up about two months ago from RPMgarage.com, I scoured CL for about a month trying to find one in the states. I think I ended up paying 220-250 shipped for it. I'm curious, what were you asking?

In my opinion, the only lips worth it are the HONDA OEM lips. but, I understand that everyone doesn't have the money for that, so next best is the OEM replica lips on ebay. I don't know too much about the fitment, but some people on here have them, and you really can't tell the difference.

Thanks! And I checked out oemlip.com and pricewise it's not bad at all.. What's the deal with the fiberglass lips? They are more probe to crack and chip?

I was asking $250 shipped or best offer. But decided to keep it and get it painted at the same time I get the type-s bumper painted. Decided to keep it in case something would happen to the oem front lip then I could just slap that one on.
