Aero lip install problem... ARGGGG~

Well, as title suggest.. I am having a hard time installing the aero lip.

Is there anything to do beforehand other than taking off all the screws at the bottom?!

I am having about 1~1.5inch gap on the side... any1 who installed their aero lip can give me some feedback on this?

Or maybe some1 can lend me a hand with the install? I can bring some timmy and stuff... or is there a install-meet arranged in Van anytime soon?!?

Well... the thing is that I can't get it anywhere close to where the screws are... so I must be doing something wrong I think...

is this rep or oem?
if rep u should test fit it before removing all the tapes
after u test fitted ...."if" all the screws can line up perfectly then u should remove the tape and install it!

What do you want instead? Some beer and a hooker?

I never had issues with my OEM lip, I suspect it's a rep as well.

That might be a little excessive, but if you're offering........

in all seriousness, I'm picking one up this weekend so I could be looking for help soon too. I'm relieved to hear the going rate is caffeine and donuts.

Well... problem solved... apparently the 3M tape I used was excessive and shouldn't have put in the bottom, preventing the lip to fit in place.

My buddy took off some of them and it fits perfectly! Thanks guys!

I am also interested in knowing. I'm pretty sure the price is not set in stone and you have some room to play with the numbers.
