3m double side tape and some self tapping screws from home depot to bolt under. If it's know where near bolting. Make some custom brakets to hold the lip up. Be creative and make it hard for just anyone to pull it off.

if it's easily removable have it painted to color match with your car. So the color match won't be off. It's better for the painter so he can see the piece to balance out the color with the entire bumper.

You can have it off the car so no overspray gets all over your bumper. Unless you decide to have it all painted all at once with it being on more expensive and won't get under the lip section. So it's not a wise think to do. I think you should tell them just have it painted seperately and if you can't give them your car take off you gas lid or something to they can have something to match the paint with.

If you mold it and have it entirely painted it would rid you the fact of taking off. But a type r lip is a lip looks it'll look good on the Accord and gives it more shape. No need to mold it and worry about cracks.

its meant for a 98-00 right? I've been looking for one for a 01 coupe and I can't find anything. How much modification is needed?

oh, it's really simple to mod a 98-00 to fit our kind of bumper.

just cut off where it says "cut me off", so it can fit the middle opening of the three openings on the 01-02 bumpers

get one off ebay. It doesnt cost no 50 bucks to cut that little peice of and if you or a friend dont have a dremel already it is one hell of an investment.
