Not feeling it but never hurts to do something different and you can atleast remove that.

Real question is how the hell did you crack the lip so bad when your car is like a 4x4 anyway

Real talk? Didn't your mother teach you how to properly talk. I'm not trying to impress you at all.

You posted your pictures here I can say what I want. It's not hate it looks ghetto. You won't impress me with a 6 dollar plastidip fix.

Fixed up well but doesn't really look good at all. The lines just don't flow with anything.

Not a fan, perhaps do the whole section on each side with a deep gloss black finish so it looks like splitters. Vinyl would probably be the way to go, cheap too.

Looks decent. I personally would have just plasti-dipped the whole bottom portion so that it's even.

But I dislike the wheels. Not really digging them in white. They look very "dub-ed" out if you will, especially in the second picture. But to each his own.

Is it me, or is this guy asking for opinions and getting super defensive when someone has an opinion?
