Default Front lip mod

My friend is really into Hyundai Tiburons, and he was over today so we could do this mod to his car, and he suggested that I try it on mine.

It'* only about $20 in materials. The lip is actually garage door bottom from Home Depot...

I think it came out beautifully, but what do you guys think?

(Oh and yeah, I know it needs to be washed.)



This is the original Tiburon thread\version.

Interesting. I'm curious to know the functionality for this add on. Cosmetic?

I'd hate to see what happens when you go over a parking curb.

I wouldn't have even known that was a garage door bottom if you hadn't said so. Looks nice, adds a little bit of protection under there for steep driveways.

Easy and cool looking. It certainly will protect the lower nose valance against curbs, etc.

It'* probably a whole bunch of screws and washers...

I've seen a bunch of 5th Gen Monte Carlo'* do that too.

That isn't going anywhere unless it takes everything else with it.
