I will sand it all down and paint it, but that's crummy QC for a $300 product. Like I said before, I've purchased parts pre-painted and in better shape with better fitment from eBay Taiwan stores.




Photo please..... The photos above are the bottom.

I suggest bed liner paint. Stuff repels rocks and chipping like nothing else. At least for the fiberglass version.

This is what the lip is supposed to look like. Notice the nice finish and the presence of pre-drilled mounting holes.

They definitely sent me some B-Stock bullshit.

yes..... the photos you posted are of the bottom....... unfortunate about the holes and hardware. The photos you just posted are of a marketing photo. Can I see a photo of the top of your lip..... pretty please.

My lip spoiler came with similar imperfections. Not quite as big as yours but highly noticeable. I was a bit unimpressed with the product at the price point as well..I bought during the group buy so I paid less than normal retail which is the only reason I did not complain. :-/

Yeah, I'm trying to return this thing now, but communicating with them takes forever for responses. I'm not paying $300 for this junk. A friend of mine who works in the plastic industry said "I would never ever pay $300 for that"

After two days, they finally agreed to refund in full and pay for my shipping to send this piece of junk back to them. Whether or not I actually get the label and my money back? We'll see.

It seems Mr. Slimmbones wasn't too happy I insulted his overpriced poor quality lip.

Yeah...404 Quality Not Found.

I understand it's a part that is unfinished for painting, but for a premium price...it needs to look better than that. Not to mention the lack of mounting holes, arriving warped, and having no mounting hardware. This is what I expect for $100 from a Latvian on eBay, not $300 from a "reputable" company in California. I hope they feel good about ripping people off.
