    Here's the other mod that didn't make it last time…



    Picked up an M2 CF trunk lip from some guy that upgraded to the M2 CS version or something. Another piece that was super cheap due to it being slightly damaged. Pretty much chips in the CF on the top side (the important side).

    Doesn't matter to me. I'm planning to paint it all white anyways so it works out.

    Not the best picture. But I mean it's just a white lip lol



    I did throw it on the Model 3 to see if it fits. Doesn't fit at all…as expected.




    Now for the tedious part. Removal of the factory trunk lip..ugh

    Made sure to take a before picture this time




    Then bam, to the good part…Nah, this was such a bitch, had to document it :lol

    Cutting through with the floss was the easy part. Taking off the adhesive took forever.








    Yay all done. Had to do some polishing though since I had some scratches.




    Soo….My dumbass dropped the spoiler somehow. Chipped it. So back to Wayne to have him repaint. At least I got the hard part done.




    Fast forward a few days….Well here it is, all painted and fixed lol






    Since I was painting shit, might as well do the mirrors right?

    Taking off the PPF






    Bam…done.






    Looks so much better IMO. And it was a way cheaper than buying new painted ones.

    No before/after this time. If I didn't drop the spoiler...


    Ok, I'm going to stop messing with this car for a bit lol

    Apparently, if you have a fake M, you get grey accents. The mirrors and the diffuser were both that grey color. Why?!

    A few weeks ago I saw a Kia at a local brewery but when I moved closer I realized it was a 2 series GC.
