Polyurethane Lip Kit Questions

I recently bought a polyurethane lip kit which will be painted professionally at a body shop in within the next week, but I've read that insufficient prep work on polyurethane parts will undoubtedly lead to cracking and peeling. I want to make sure the pieces are ready before I take them, so I have a few questions on prepping them for paint.

1. Should the pieces fit perfectly before painting or is it safe to be flexing the parts slightly during installation? Also, after painting, will I still be able to heat areas that aren't perfect to improve fitment?

2. Is there anything I should do to the kit before taking it to the shop? I read that these kits sometimes need a thorough cleaning to remove mold release chemicals.

3. Should I just make sure the shop knows how to handle polyurethane or will I need to give special instructions?

Any advice is appreciated, including central Maryland body shop recommendations.

PU is a very robust material. chances are if you try to fly it it will just go back into its original shape. you can try to use heat, but just pay attention. if you try to flex it after its painted, even if the shop used flex agent in the paint, you run the risk of cracking the paint

2. Is there anything I should do to the kit before taking it to the shop? I read that these kits sometimes need a thorough cleaning to remove mold release chemicals.
every body shop wipes down everything theyre going to paint with wax and grease removed and soap and water.

3. Should I just make sure the shop knows how to handle polyurethane or will I need to give special instructions?
if youre nervous, just remind them that it is a PU piece

Re: Polyurethane Lip Kit Questions

Here are some pics of the front, its kind of dirty, (Just got it back) have to go back again to the shop(really big mess, not very happy) to get the side moldings but here are some pics of the front lip, it came out well as far as looks and color matching to the car, on the sides there was a gap between the lip and my bumper so they had to put some ribits to hold it together, I dont mind it though. hope this helps ill post some better pics friday, maybe tomorrow







got my lip kit from ebay, my advise for future lip kit buyers, make sure its Honda part

The paint match does look good. I don't like the choice of rivets to get rid of the gap though. I've seen people use lip kit weather stripping from dealerships, which fills in an gaps without being too obvious.

Maybe if I had an SH, but if I'm gonna have to paint 4 pieces, I feel like I might as well get a full kit.

Re: Polyurethane Lip Kit Questions

I got the car and kit back Monday but didn't get everything on until this weekend. I tried to install 3M pant protection on the front lip, which I quickly realized was a bad idea after it ripped some paint off the area under the passenger side turn signal. I used some white Plasti Dip to cover it up, though, and I actually like the look. I'll have to have it repainted after winter.

Re: Polyurethane Lip Kit Questions

whats up fellas. i got a quick question about my polyurethane lip kit as well. i got a wings west lip kit and spoiler from my cousin and its painted white. my lude is green so how would i strip the paint off the lip kit without damaging the rubber? im thinking about just leaving the lip kit original black and throwing it on my lude. ive been searching online and havent found a definitive answer. i heard that airplane remover will melt the rubber a lil and thats the last thing id want. thanks!

If the kit is painted well and not chipping/peeling, it would probably be easiest just to sand them a little and paint over the white. I'm having constant peeling issues with mine, which is probably due to improper prep work, so a good finish would save some effort.

You'll definitely need to paint the kit unless you want to rock sanded lips, which will look worse than stock. My suggestion is to find a good painter who has experience with polyurethane. It's better to spend the extra money now and not have to deal with it later.
