The shipper damaged my front lower lip, even when they were warned about exactly that possibility. Arrrgh. I am having difficulty finding another USDM OEM replacement part. Any thoughts?

WTF are they gonna cover the damage? Id be livid. Isnt that a shipper that was recommended by others?

I think I saw a front lip for sale recently, cant remember where though. They are out there or even an aftermarket poly lip for the time being.

Sucks let us know how it works out.

Did you show the driver the damage? You do have a bill of ladding which can prove the lip was damaged in transit. Either way what a bummer. Maybe chase knows but I think PY lips are discontinued. Keep us posted

That sucks, was the car raised all the way up? Your shipping should be fully insured, file a claim. I know of a BNIB PY lip for 1600 plus shipping.

Yes, the shipper is taking responsibility. I did get help finding the shipping company from Nate, with whom I have no issue. In fact, Nate specifically warned me of the possibility of damaging the ITR lower lip. Nate recommended taking pictures as the car was loaded. So, I asked Cycil to take pics, and send them to me. Cycil spoke with the driver, and confirmed that the driver was aware of the fragile area.

But, somehow they still busted the lip. Yes I am livid.

Wow Cap... Very sorry to hear about the lip.

On a lighter note, how is the rest of the caR? I know the caR and Cycil and she will be a joy Im sure.

I, as are you, as all of us would be (and have a right to be) livid... It could just as easily have been a racoon while driving that cracked the bumper too. There are lips out there, and I know it is a burden on you now to find one, get it painted, mounted, etc... It sucks...

But don't let it take away from the whole experience of the caR. She will be pretty in no time.

(Sorry for playing a bit of devils advocate, but trying to keep it as positive experience as it can be now for you)

That sucks. At least they are claiming responsibility. You may have to visit the used market and buy a lip in any color then have it painted. Used lips come up for sale for a few hundred bucks from time to time.

Long shot, but you could buy a plastic welder and try fixing it yourself to be at least usuable for now and just get it resprayed. Still not going to be cheap all in I guess.

Yes, I am practicing patience. Actually, the car was never delivered to me. It is now in a freight depot in Denver. So, I have never actually seen or touched this car... With a tip from Cycil, I found a yellow lip on icbmotors. I told the shipper to get that part, and install it. They claimed they will do that. So, I am now waiting for the car to be repaired.

Cheers, Cap
