I am so pissed off! I am seeing this new girl and when I was pulling in her driveway for the first time which I knew the curb was steep, I was extremely careful. Obviously not enough! My Veilside lip on the right side must have caught the curb badly and 1/3 of the lip completely cracked off from where it starts on one side all the way to where the grill part starts and it rolled under my tire! It is destroyed! I will have pics up soon enough. Damnit Im pissed. $400 down the drain. :xZ!o: :cry: :punch: :dunno: :50cal:

I don't imagine Dave is blaming her...and while I can't speak for Dave...I believe she is worth it...the driveway may have to be modified, G/F is o-k as is.

Sad to hear this Dave...especially since you were aware of the angle and were ttrying to be careful.

V1 lips sold by Trent at MVP had a warranty card that covered 1/2 of the purchase price...as long as you didn't modifiy (mold in) the lip. No other stipulations on how the damage occured. Might not hurt to contact your vendor and see if they'll help out. Glad the bumper was left unharmed.

Just for the record...I didn't blow it up...the shop I entrusted her to for tuning blew it up. I would have actually felt better if I had blown it up.

Sorry for the hijack here...morning Art.

Dave, that SUCKS!

I'm really sorry man. I've definitely heard of worse though and at least you didn't mess up your bumper. I wish there was something to say to make it better, but at least you won't do that again.

Sorry to hear that, Dave. I heard through the grapevine that this is a good op for your GF to get you that bodykit you've always dreamed about. :wink:

IS it beyond JB weld?

These cars need a lip like on the older camaros.....plastic & $20.00.

Curbs, speedbumps, the bane of my automotive existence.

Oh man, sorry to hear that. I hope that the warranty is upheld by Trent and that you'll get a new one in no time. It looks like a lot of force had to be applied for that urethane to do that, crazy.

Yes it was urethane. I called up James (Farseide on here and at Motoring) and he actually repaired Sosas Greddy lip that was just as bad. He said a good body shop can do it so depending on the price I am going to try it out. So I am going to get some prices this week and see what happens. I am also going to egt in touch with Trent
