Default Install ebay Mugen Rep Front Lip - It's a Good Fit

Installed the Magicdrift Mugen rep front lip today. Install went smooth and lip is a very good fit.
I can't decide whether or not to paint it yet, so I will leave as is for now.
Install tips:
- secure the front three bolts in the center first, leave them a bit loose.
- then do the 2 x M6 bolts to the right and left of the center bolts using the existing clips in the bumper.
- next, attach the two trailing pieces towards the rear of the car. I had to use my drill to enlarge the holes.
- finally, attach the two ends of the spoiler. I also had to drill holes in the bottom of the fender and enlarge the holes on the lip.
- keep everything loose, then start tightening everything down.
I purchased some stainless steel hardware, nuts, flat washers, lock washers, and bolts, all in M6 metric size. It cost about $10.
Once I got the car up on two jackstands in the front, the install took about two hours by myself, and a lot of fiddling to get a very close fit.
All in all, not bad for under $100. I may try the side skirts next.

Aside from the price another benefit of the ebay lip is they're made from polyurethane or a similar plastic with margin for flexing whereas the authentic mugen lip is FRP and will easily crack or even break if scraped hard.

Also bronze on suzuka blue is
