Hartge replica lip installation

Well, the lip does not fit 100%
As a result, you need to trim here and there. It all depends on how it fits
on your car.

1) Remove the accent bars
for instructions on that, look here:

2) attach lip to see where you need to trim.
I used painter's tape (blue tape) to mark where to trim.
This picture shows how much I had to trim on one pillar.

3) also mark where you need to drill holes for the underside of the car.
There are 3 screws to hold it in place from the bottom.

I did not know what to use to trim, but Thanks to lux.sh
I got myself a dremel tool. Very handy.

4) remove the lip and go ahead with the trimming and drilling.

5) Apply the double side tape to hold the top of the lip to the car.

6) install the lip

7) re-install the accent bars.
Note: you might need to trim them down. I did not trim them.
they fit very tight but that helped secure the lip pillars.

Here is the final product.
