HELP ON BODY KIT ( FIBERGLASS & URETHANE) CAN I DO THIS?

I bought the rmm lip from poweredbyrice..well the fitment is not that good.theres a big gap between the rmm lip and the stock bumper.. my question is is it possible fill the gap with Fiberglass bondo then sand it and paint it to make it look as if it is one whole bumper??..and if i can how would i go about doing so..meaning will Fiberglass stick to Urethane? thanx

a bodyshop should be able to hook you up, but it should fit better than that.. idunno

idunnolive with it, I guess.. it's not very noticeable.

Or you could just sell it and buy a different front.

I wouldn't put Fiberglass on that ish. the polyurethane could bend and the Fiberglass would crack. If you haven't painted it yet you could give it a try as long as you don't drive like a madman! thumbsup

Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

Fix it by adhesive tapes.

Drill two holes.

And install it firmly using adhesive tapes behind the lip spoiler. Very easy.
