    To cover up the holes in the lip I bought the screwtype body clips. Then I superglued those SOBs on there. So now it looks kinda like plastic rivets. Don't have a closeup of thsoe yet. Just got a new phone yesterday and need to take new pics.

    Here's a better pic of my lip:

    Great write-up. Keep up the good work, seems like we have another "TacoBill" on our hands.

    Does anyone have any issues with the lip coming off at speed? I just installed mine tonight and I am a little concerned about the ride into work tomorrow

    Bump, I'd like to know this too. It looks like you might be able to modify the honeycomb portion to fit the unique design of the CA Special, especially since it has to be covered anyway. Also, where did you guys get the part from? Dealer?

    Where are you guys getting yours? I just talked with my local Ford dealer and they are asking $143. Did Ford raise the price because everyone is doing this mod? Or is my local Ford dealer charging too much?

    Bump... I just did this to mine and it looks ****ing awesome. If you're gonna do it, take note about the cutting it several times to make sure you get it right. I cut mine just once and it's a little jacked if you get down and look at it close.
