Anyone running an 89+ lip like the bomex or similar on a pre 89 bumper, i really would like to purchase the cfx pre 89 lip but it looks like they are having some trouble getting carbon fiber so i dont know if thats gonna hapen and i need a lip asap since i tore off the stock one getting the car off the trailer. since these are readily available i wanted to know if anyone had them on their pre 89 and if so were there any modifications that needed to be done to make it fit.

If you flip the bomex 3 hole lip upside down it fits kinda nice, but not perfect.

I don't see how there is anyway it would come close to fitting upside down. The bumpers are very differently shaped and it would look retarded upside down anyway.

From what I can recall, it looked pretty decent.

while YMMV, i have tried the OEM 2.5tt R brake duct lip on my <'88 car.....no way in heck it would fit- flip it upside down, stand on your head, whatever....no chance! :(

The 3 hole lip flows out to match the lines of the 89+ bumper. If you flip it upside down it's going to be at this angle (profile shot of car " \ " ) going back underneath the bumper..no thanks :)

A few people have done it and it worked. I personally wouldn't do it, just giving out more options to people.
