    Red paint/tape/whatever to match front/rear

    Alright, I've recently installed the Ebay front and rear lips that are red. I'm trying to match (or at least come close to) the red in order to replicate the side skirts. Anyone done this or have pointers? I was sick of having to redo the plasti-dip 2-3 times a year.

    easiest thing would be to bring the car or lip to a body shop and see if they can give you a color match. some higher end shops have a color gun that will give you the correct info on a PC.

    Interesting. I'll find a shop and see if I can get anything.

    Failing that, the most economical way would probably be to paint the eBay lips at the same time.

    Why do you have to keep applying PD so often? I applied it on mine and it's been there for 3 years.

    Too many parts to list: My build thred.

    Winter and trips to dealership. People step on it and it rips. And after winter I've had to re-apply.

    If it's just for the grey part of the side lip, I just wrapped mine in vinyl, came out nice looking (was wrapped in gloss black to match the window trim, not red) Only issue is that rolls of the vinyl on amazon are sold in 5' by x feet wide....the side skirt grey piece is literally 5' and half an inch, that little cut piece at the end is making my OCD flare up.

    It's understandable. Doesn't everyone have those moments when they're walking somewhere, they feel something weird under their foot, and and it's like "Oh, shit! There's a car here!"
