It probably is,
but I'll say somethin' about that: If it performs it's function, and he's happy with the aesthetics... :shrug:

Its been done before. At least use black screws...or paint them or something.

I might do it to my SC for shits and giggles until I get my 2000 front bumper cover and stuff.

the lip on the ae86 is more about form over function, diy, less $$$

what he should do is take that trimming and fiberglass over it making a mold and a more professional looking lip...
