what up fellas- figured id throw this up in here.. dont shoot
Disclaimer: i did the retractable plate prior to doing the CF front lip- just cuse i knew it was going to get messy. if you want to remove the front chrome lip to put on a new one or a CF one- its fairly easy (thanks to parry for some tips!
) there is a one half inch strip of 3M tape under the OEM strip.. you can heat up the strip with a heat gun for a hot second and then begin to pry it up with a flat wedge covered in microfiber towel (is how i did it) after you prey up the corner just a lil bit past the fist of 3 tabs, the rest comes off rather easily...
now before you go all out on the dremeling and etc... id take a minute or two to tape up the area you will be working around. just to be kind to the rest of your bumper
btw when i cut the lower mesh (those of you who want to do this mod on their SRT8s)
this is how much you have to cut, literally. just enough for it to slip in and out. before you cut the mesh, put it up against the mesh and mark the corners and grab your dremel...
short video of when it was fully wired and installed. before i put everything back together- click on the image for video
and everything installed and put back together-
