HOW-TO: Another Home Depot Lip

Here is the How To

Step 1:
Go to Home Depot!


Step 2: Get Garage Door Bottom Seal, i think they come in 9 ft packs, one will be enough, 2 if u think u will mess up (part #03749)(also notice that there is a foam type and a hard rubber type, i prefer the foam) and a two sided double stick tape that is preferably black, lots of tape, lol (less is seen when black)



Step 3: Place Double stick tape On smaller edge of weather striping.


Step 4: Clean bottom surface of bumper to apply lip. The take off top cover on tape to prepare it to stick on bumper. When putting the lip around the bumper, make sure it sits flush, some like it back more, but i like it flush. Go slow and make sure to get the tape to stick evenly, any extra weather stripping, just cut off flush at the end of the bumper:




Step 5 (optional): I put screws in mine just for saftey, but its not needed, but i suggest it. Put a small screw vary on size depending on person along bottom edge on lip into bumper. I used some washers so it had more area on the lip. Make sure to put the screws back far enough that you wont put a screw out the front of the bumper. I put one about every 4-5 inches.




And step back and compare to a car with a real lip, aka, the 520hp 515ft/lbs termanator!

Holy shit was this easy! I just did mine...looks awesome. I would definitely suggest using some eye hooks or screws or something to keep it in just incase the tape doesn't hold. I'll take a pic later if I can. Looks awesome though for what...15 bucks?

Just saw this thread and ran to my nearest home depot to get the stuff. They didnt have anything in a 90 degree angle so I had to deal with i guess a 45 degree. let me know what you think!
