Nuckingfuts, i don't think so, they are just a molding company but i can ask him the next time I talk to him. if they do, i assume it's gonna be expensive because it'll just be 1 being ordered.

new for carbon fiber J's lip is 300, a new used one never installed is about 200, i bought mine J's carbon fiber lip for 150 but sold it for 200. I thought i like it but I didn't. The reason is, it's so flimsy and thin. one hit on it wrong it'll break or chip. i know it looks good but only on garage queen cars or show cars. if it's a daily driver you would want what we are trying to buy here from this company.

i don't know which exact J's rep carbon fiber lip since there are so many out there but here was how it looked. The fit looks to be really good on a 90-91 when I placed it on not mounted. Didn't seem to need any trimming. looking at the close up pic below you can see how thin it is. so it's really best to buy the poly j's lip we are trying to buy here instead.

per the person i bought from says passwordJDM
http://passwordjdm.com/PasswordJDM-EF-8 ... 5C426.aspx

i see in ebay the same but no name brand one??
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-CARBONFIBER ... 1c7f0d68d1


both are costly and flimsy not sure why anybody would buy it for daily. i mean i bought it cuz it was cheap but still i didn't want to ruin it so i sold it. the person i sold it to says it's cheap and didn't want to pay full price for something that will break easily too.

if the group moves to a carbon fiber lip, I am out. No need for carbon fiber on the front of the racecar.

we are not moving to a carbon fiber front lip. somebody inquired about the carbon fiber front lip, and I was just trying to explain to him about the carbon fiber lip I bought and how much junk it is for daily or track driving.

we are still trying to move forward on the poly j's rep lip. i am in the process to create a shipping cost. i just don't have any card boards laying around presently. as soon as I do i will get a cost to those who left me their zip codes for the states.

Mine. Two screws on each end. 3M tape on mounting surface. Scruff ramps all day. This lip is a good peace of mind. I'm pretty low. Don't paint, just need a dress up product applied once a month. :-)b
I guarantee any CRX owner will be happy for the price you pay. Hence I'm getting ×4. Maybe more if I had more reliable CRX friends.

if people are still in for the group buy, i might be willing to buy 2 as well but will the extra lip help lower the price. No shipping for me since I will set something up with you for pickup or delivery to a friend of mine?

price 97.20 is the lowest and doesn't matter how many you buy. this is directly from the source. i am not making a dime or penny, just sharing with the crxcommunity.com crx enthusiast.

however if we got like 15 buyers then i will renegotiate the price accordingly because it's 5 more than the 10 price quote I received.

yes if you live in so cal or have friends in so cal, i can meet you or them, or you or them can even pick them up yourselves when it's ready, it's in Chino, CA. off the 60fwy.

I'm still in the process of getting some cardboard to create a box to get shipping estimates. I have yet to find any cardboard for this. I hope to find some soon. I did weight it, it's 1.5lbs so it's not too heavy.

There are a couple of ways to ship them, sending it boxed up the long way, or fold it in a big U shape (not a V shape) so it won't be considered oversize. Sending it the long way shouldn't be that much in the states but international it will and will require it in a U shape.

Just have the lip shipped to someone going to N23 from the US, meet them at the meet in July, and you're done. Pretty cheap method.

Ok so far we have 7 confirm for sure sure! We just need 3 more to move forward. As for shipping I still not quite clear yet.

I am talking to the company to see if they can clean up the molding to have less flaws. I'm showing him the flaws on mine. The flaws are maybe due to bubbles or etc...

For the ones that are local to So Cal, please PM or put your name on here. Again you can pick up when it's ready or I can meet you somewhere in OC or LA area. We just need 3 more So Cal buyers to start collecting Paypal and then start production.

For the people out of state, i'm still working on boxing up mine to get shipping cost to your zip.


Here are some close up pics, you can leave me feedback for any questions to be address to the molder too.

ok from a quick audit I believe we have 10 buyers!
Just need confirmation for the below:


Hrunner989rex, since your in LA area, shipping shouldnt be a concern to move ahead.

Kcjohnnyboy, will buy 2 and have his family member pick up, right?

The other 7 are confirmed.

my family member will not be able to pick up. but, if something can be arranged to be dropped off at my buddy's place, that will be excellent. He lives in the Orange County area. He then can hold it for me until I visit later this year for pickup from Kansas.
