Not fun. I hate installing lips with one person and without a lift. But very simple.

Mine should be here Thursday, I have a buddy with a/c in his garage and one of those scissor-type lifts so it shouldn't be too bad.

hey, i'm glad you like it, and i promise this isn't throwing any shade because i'm sure it has it's functionality and to each his own in terms of preference, but in mine, i think the stock looks better. but with that said, i really like your build and your car is freakin dope. i really hope you don't take this in a bad way, it's just my opinion, hahaha. the type R is so clean the way it is. ^^

To the OP--going to disagree with the above. This is probably the best, most well-integrated front lip spoiler I've seen so far. Great job.

IMO, stock it looks like it's missing its lip spoiler - this corrects that in an "OEM" way. Similar design to the one on a Club ND for example. Is it the end-all-be-all? Definitely not, but it's also inexpensive - I've blown up $$ carbon ones before so this'll do.

I see this came with both phillips, washers and the nuts Do the washers and nut go on back side or is this like a straight tap screw right into bumper, leave it and forget it type thing?

You definitely need the washers & nuts!

So I’m stupid when it comes to hardware. Do the washers go on same side as screw or on backside of screw into bumper along with the nut? Does the bumper need to come off in order to get nut on behind it? Just trying to visualize it.

and can you post a few pics of your car with it?

I only had to take this black piece off underneath:

and then you could get access behind the bumper:

I tried to use the little holes as a guide to determine where to drill. And then if I remember correctly, on the bottom, I used the screw and black washer, and on the top I used the nut and the silver washer. Some spots were very tight, and in some cases, I drilled closer to the edge of the lip so I had more room to tighten the nut.

Not installed, hoping to get time in my friend's airconditioned garage on Saturday. With the heat index over 110 every day it's the only way this is going to happen.

As mentioned the hardware has two washers, looking at them I'd opt to do it the same as @arbies did - screw, black washer, bumper, silver washer, nut.
