How-To: SAP DIY Black LIP

I saw someone did this install already on here and I wanted to do it up, it looked really good, i started out by covering the car, to ensure no run off gets on the car or other spray, sand down the bumper with 600 grit. Then cleared it all off with acetone. Then proceeded to apply primer ensure an even coat. Then waited for it to dry before coming bck to do six coats of the black paint. After doing all the coats until you are satisfied, wait for it to dry. Then I finalized it with 6 coats of clearcoat. Let it dry and then you got your final product, which i think looks hella tight. Shout out going to my buddy manny, hes a JDM man himself but its always good when someone is down to work on cars no matter what they are.

Looks good! You should do that little strip on the bottom that goes all the way around the front bumper as well.
