sweet thanks for heads up, you havent had any issues with touchless car washes lifting it at all?
No issues from car washes. However, I live in Northeastern Canada so the winter salt and dirt caused the vinyl to peel and flake off.. I believe some dirt got underneath and ruined it.. also cracked my lip off due to some unexpected hard chunks of ice/snow.. wouldn't recommend running a lip or vinyl through the harsh winters here :(

ABS is top tier. I have the type R wing and the Type R front lip, so nice. Perfect fit. How's the whole bumper?
Love the bumper.. ikon lip was okay but it was only secured by screws so it wasn't the most secure.

Yeah man I don't fw those Ikon ones. I love how the abs replaces the plastic shield and lower grille and uses stock body clips. Feels fantastic and I'm not worried about it flying off!

I'm gonna have to see how your build has come along, it's been a long time man! I got some crazy stuff now.. got the APR wing and shizzzz

I like the style of the ikon type r lip because it eliminates the gap that the vent creates on the original style. I like the flush design more, but it's all preference. The main thing to remember with this lip to actually bolt it on and you'll need to rig some brackets to support the front corners. It did take some prep to get it wrap ready, but I like the results. I wrapped the lip in vvivid true r carbon wrap.

Dude, I love this. I've been debating trying a different lip as I'm stock height stock wheel size and I scrape every other week on the ABS lip as it has that "spacer" material which you didn't like. Maybe I'll investigate down this road, but I like keeping my stock stuff untouched in case I have to sell the car in an emergency!

Do you have a link to the lip you bought? I bought the same one I thought and it doesn't come close to lining up and the little indents where the lower front grilles end are off like it was made for the base civics.
