The FRP is not as pliable as urethane but that also means less sagging. It can be heated an manipulated.

The not spot on so far has been the front bumper has a quarter inch gap around the headlight on the passenger side. The hood needs adjusting at the hinges but otherwise is a perfect fit. The rear bumper is not mounted properly yet so it looks good but not 100% sure yet.

Well in duraflex advertisements they twist that shít and jump on it and like hit it with bats, lol

Can you post pics of the gaps and such just for future reference?

Another shot of the tips and bumper. This is just before the tips went in for fresh powder coating after getting overheated on the track! Clearcoat and heat not a good combo! lol Tips are now Ceramic Coated and much better colour combo now I think!

But thumbs up if you dig it.
They look good as long as you can't see the whole tip.. Then it looks like a bobblehead.. All big head at the end.

No. These are designed as bolt on tips for the HKS Hi-Power exhaust system. It has interchangeable tips.

Having said that, Fringe can make tips similar to these that can be welded on too! Contact Fringe XVO for more info.

In case you're wondering how far the tips stick out from the bumper, I have a few pics. Keep in mind this is an amuse replica bumper too.

Straight on from the side view



About 1.5" out total



From top view almost flush



From behind



Very modest poke really



Does not protrude further than overall car length



Closeup goodness...
