I received the lip today right at my work (I'm a shipping/receiving coordinator, so I figured it's best to send it right to me instead of the house when I'm not there!) It made it from Hong Kong to here in Syracuse, NY in 24 hours. *OVERNIGHT PARTS FROM JAPAN* Pretty impressive.
I was a little worried when it was delivered, as it wasn't in a box. It was heavily wrapped with bubble wrap. After removing all the bubble wrap I was happy to see that the required hardware for installation was included. They used cardboard and actual pieces of wood, screwed into the lip through the installation holes to help it keep form through out shipping. This had me feeling a little better after the first sight of it in the bubble wrap.
But of course, after further inspection...there is a small crack, about a half inch long vertically right about where the headlight is towards the middle of the car. The poly is slightly chipped where the crack is. Once I get it to my parents house, where my car is stored I'll take some pics and post them up, prior to installation and after.
I figure once it's installed I can maybe put a thin line of glue to seal the crack and touch it up with some flat paint...or, do you guys think it would be better to just plastidip the entire thing before installation?? I've dipped my chrome nose ring, mitsubishi diamond and hood scoop. Very durable stuff, thinking maybe that would be a smart choice with the lip? Anybody else with a poly lip that has any crack issues, please chime in on what you've done to repair yours. Thanks.
