Paint it silver.

Gary

I am considering that - however it ties in with the rockers & rear bumper as it is - may be overkill all silver up front.

When I get the modded cover back, I have to move the lic plate. I can't run no plate, I got away with it for a couple of years, then got a ticket for it - which is $400 in NYS!

I'm thinking of moving it to the side... I photoshopped the plate out of the center & enlarged the grille to match what it will be...

What did you use to cut the bumper cover, just some shears? I was actually talking to Scandalo about this but now I'm considering doing something similar with the stock s70 bumper. I like the plastic weld idea much better than working with fiberglass though. It will probably be a little tougher with the angled opening but if I manage to pull it off may look good, I figure buy a junkyard bumper and mess with it until i get something I like.

let me know if you decide to "re work" another 960 lip, I have been looking for something to put on the xc bumper for a while and I like this!

I used an angle grinder with a cutting disc, I just 'eyeballed' the amount to cut out. Safer to mark a line with a ruler & sharpie.

To be honest the whole plastic weld thing is a bit of a PITA - I don't mind doing it for myself, but not sure I be content with the results if I were doing it for someone else. I probably spent a good two hours on that lip, all told. The cover took much longer to refine.

HH are you intending to color match it at any point or are you going to leave it black? I have contemplated doing this as I had 2 940 lips but have a hard enough time getting into my parents driveway as it is so I never followed through with it. You should PM me because I might have an idea you might enjoy with the 940 lips

Ok good to know, i was considering that but have made quite a mess of plastic with an angle grinder before :unsure:
