Mach 1 Lip Installed... Pics!

So I finally got my Mach 1 lip and had to use a heat gun to get it back to its normal shape. They send it in a super tiny box all twisted up and it is just ridiculous how it looks when you take it out... I just used the hardware from the stock lip and put the clips on the bumper instead of the lip and drilled through the lip using the existing holes in the bumper as a guide and bolted it on. I also had to cut a couple notches on each side so it could conform to the bumper nicely. Really makes the front end look mean. Check it out...

Great work! There looks to be a lot more room to attach the thing on an SVT fascia.

Watch out in them mountains... they eat lips for breakfast!

^ Damn... You are'nt joking! I was thinking about painting mine, I had painted my stock lip but it ends up chiping after a few months. Love how the mach lips look on MK1's, very mean lookin. Thanks everyone for the positive feedback, I would recommend this lip to anyone. There is not much moding needed, just a couple notches on each side so it can bend without bulging and trimmimg about 3-4 inches off each end so it sits flush.

I was able to get mine on there without notching the "corners" but it definitely seems like I went the hard-route!

And the damage to mine was acquired after inadvertently 'finding' a swell in the road that wasn't there the last time I was... but a good D.I.Y. 3M ClearBra may have kept the damage localized intead of flex-cracking my paintjob.
