Look at the stock bumper, then look at the lip kit.

There's NO clear on the lip kit underneath there.

The kit on the ends is smooth to the touch. As in, NO PREP WORK WAS DONE.

Wait wait wait...what's this?

Just by looking at the sides and rear, you can easily tell they're not color matched.

This is on the ENTIRE car by the way. Not just a little here and there.

I don't even want to know what the hell happened there...

Holy Smokes!!!! I can hardly believe this.....and the guy used what looks like drywall screws to install the kit!!! WTF man I would be so p issed over that, needs to take legal action over that. IMO If it had not been said it was done at a body shop I would have though maybe in someone's back yard. Well it can be said that the car has been turned into a 50 yard car....as in it looks great from 50 yards away.
