Not bad at all! It's nice to see cheap, easy (relatively) DIYs. My friends have done Home Depots for their S13 and 14s.

I have a "Home Depot lip" myself but made out of alluminum (90 degree) angle and needless to say, gets scraped all the time! As a matter of fact, it just got pretty damaged while being towed onto a flat bed tow truck. I'm going to rebuild it or replace it with the same but the rubber lip that K-Rock did is a good idea for reinforcing or enhancing the look of any type of lip/bumper. I am also going to check with a local Southern Cali "rubber company" called VIP Rubber and Plastic. They can manufacture many if not "all" kinds of extrusions and rubber moldings. They're in La Habra 1-800-722-4vip or [email protected] (I think they work nation-wide). Gotta check their prices and see which is more convenient. I don't have ways of showing pictures of my lip but my project is a bit more complicated...I had to jig-saw many cuts to the alluminum angle to adquire the curves/bends and contour of my '02 Rex bumper. I probably spent about $28.00 all-together but a LOT of time...I think it was worth it though, but gotta get some rubber at the edge. GOOD JOB K-ROCK!!!

Nice job, may consider trying this..unless I can find a new bumper cover (anyone?).

Sorry, dont mean to hijack the thread either, but how did you mount those big a$$ fogs in the middle of that old bumper?
