Authentic Hartge Lip Install Help

Couple questions about the install:

- Do you need to remove the fog lights to install - instructions say you do?
- Is it safe to have the lip painted w/out sizing it up on the car first to ensure that it fits properly?
> The lip is at the body shop and I don't have my car yet - I don't know if I should have them paint it right away or have them wait until I have the car to size it up first - all posts say that it fits right on, but I am obviously concerned

Any other special info I should know about the authentic lip install? All messages about the simple install seem to pertain to the replica, so I want to make sure that the authentic is just as easy. Someone mentioned trimming the pieces that come up towards the grill, but I can't imagine having to do that.

I'd get it painted and ready to put on the day you get your car.

the authentic one is more tough to install since its a perfect fitment. easiest way to do it is to remove the fornt bumper.
