Re: DIY Home Depot Lip.

yes, there are some on here who have done it. It will not look good, and I think if most people had to do it again they would not. The bottom line is that it is gimmicky and tacky. Why not just save up and get a real lip? For around 100 you can find some decent ones. baysonr is where I would look, home depot is not.

Re: DIY Home Depot Lip.

A real lip isn't all that expensive. I'd save the $20 on the garden edger and put it towards a real lip instead. Yes it doesn't look back from far, but from close it's..... eh

Re: DIY Home Depot Lip.

If your car is your home I suppose shopping at home depot might be acceptable. But since you probably don't. STOP GETTING CAR PARTS AT HOME DEPOT!

Re: DIY Home Depot Lip.

wouldn't look good, especially since part of the front bumper either drops down or goes back, not like the ones shown that are flat from the bottom
