Played around with the vizage rear + new exhaust.

Got boored, and played around with one of the new exhaust cans, the us spec rear bumper, and the vizage rear.

In the end, I'll have one exhaust on each side. I havn't modified the bumper yet to fit 2 exhausts, so only one of the exhaust cans was used...

You could do it. But you'd need some big ass sides like buddy club 2 ones. Vizage isn't really the best kit for that smile

hey man if you're using Vizage rears and you have a bare bumper like that...you might wanna consider molding it on or at least gluing that bitch down with the best epoxy you can find. Cuz if not you might have a problem with it not sticking well.

But if you want to be able to remove it in the future...then you can paint them separate and just use some adhesion promoter on a clean dry bumper and stick on the stickiest double sided tape you can find

just some advice from someone who knows...but it will look sick thumbsup

So I've done this sort of thing before smile

Molding it on isn't exactly a good idea, concidering the bumper and lip are both made of very soft flexable materials. It would just be a matter of time before the paint would crack. If both the bumper and the lip were made of glassfiber, it would work better 'cause there wouldn't be as much movement in the materials.

I'll use what I've always used: the same glue that's used for gluing on your car windows. It's better than what most people use (sikaflex), bonds better, and it's elastic enough. But it's not recomended for anyone who're planning to remove the styling - 'cause once it's on, it's ON! smile But I have no need to remove it. And hearing people use double sided tape is THE dumbest shit. That's just begging for your styling to fall off smile

Anyways - thanks for the heads up! Anything constructive is always appriciated.

Dude, if i were you, i'd have the section in the rear bumper filled-in. that way the vizage rear add-ons would look even better thumbsup

I've mastered the art of the After Image Technique.
