I may have already posted pics of my car when I first got it, but i've added a few things since then :) .. Nothing major yet, as im still saving for suspension mods and stage II!!! But a few minor things just to keep me somewhat satisfied in the meantime haha... Heres a few pic's!!

A few Shots from the coast of the Delaware River.. Just wanted to share.. Theyre just taken with a regular old digital camera.. nothing special.. I wish I had a real camera and could take good pictures but this is all I got for now lol






















Hella's installed ;D






Boost gauge and Momo knob!






Was bored at work... decided to try the DIY front lip (garage door seal, 3M double sided tape, and a few self tapping screws just incase ;D)







*UPDATE* - Decided to go ahead and tint the tails and paint the chrome in the grille today!!!! Very satisfied with the end results of both!! I'm going to be modding the grille even further with a mesh insert soon but didnt have the time to get into all that today Haha!

Re: 08 WRB *Updated pics DIY front lip* !!!

Next Projects...

Re: 08 WRB *Updated pics DIY front lip* !!!

Looks intense good or bad? Haha I like how it sounds more than I like how it looks... I kinda regret not being patient and waiting for the SPT, but at the same time.. The sound of it makes it worth it lol.. As for the lip... Just give it a try... It was really easy to do, just apply the double sides tape to the lip and clean the bottom of your bumper thoroughly... Then just carefully line it up starting at one side of the bumper and just go straight across... Then of you decided it turned out good, then add some screws for extra strength... In the end if you don't like it, just take it off and you are only out $15!!! Haha

Re: 08 WRB *Updated pics DIY front lip* !!!

intense is good, i like the way cans look, especially when theyre at an angle...

I might end up changing the muffler on my UR cat back to a nice JDM style one..

Re: 08 WRB *Updated pics DIY front lip* !!!

All you need is the garage door seal, and a roll of 3M double sided tape. The seal is almost like a foam, so if u go to home depot and ask where the garage door seals are, you should see one that looks like it should be a lip( it will be rolled up in a plastic bag)... I'll try to take a pic of the bag if I can find it lol

Re: 08 WRB *Updated pics Tinted tails and Front grille chrome painted* !!!

Thanks a lot man! It was maybe 1foot too long so yeah, your gonna have to trim it a bit. Basically I attached a long strip of the double sided tape to the seal, and just started running it along the bottom of the bumper. Once it was all the way across, I used a razor blade and cut it to where it looked good. A razor blade will cut through this foam material like butter, so its very easy to trim and the cut is very straight. Make sure you get the foam lip and not a rubber one though, I've heard there are 2 different types, but the Home Depot I went to only had the foam one lol. I've heard that the rubber one is much harder to work with, and dosent keep its shape very well. Just my .02 cents though lol

I forget what the package actually calls is... I think it says rubber but its in a plastic bag and if u actually squeeze the material through the bag, it feels like foam. Just make sure its not the hard rubber material and you'll be fine!

This is what the package should look like...


Only thing is... I took this pic from another thread, and im not sure if its the same one I used.... But it did look exactly like this package. Just make sure u give the seal a squeeze and check if it feels foamy 8)
