Looking to make the front of these plain vans a bit more aggressive in appearance. I saw someone who had posted using a different front bumper skin altogether but can't remember which one (Mirage coupe?). Also, I believe it was a bit too wide. I'm not terribly unhappy with the factory bumper but was thinking of adding a lip to make it not look like it has such an underbite.

Few thoughts on lips:
Miata (front bumper has a similar shape)

Hmm, sounds like a good idea. Would be interesting to see some results. Are people still doing the old Home Depot lip? Maybe try that?

Yeah, I've seen that but trying to get something more substantial that looks legit. I'll keep everyone updated if I find out more! May just have to buy a few and test fit and go from there...

Miata lip isn't even close to fitting (too short on the sides). On to the next!!

I love that your still focused on the mission. I hope you find something. These vans need a little something to dress them up

It was low on the priority list (just got it up and running again) but I'm back on the hunt full force! I'll keep this thread updated.

Haven't had time to do any more research. Basically have to buy stuff, try it and sell or return it if it doesn't work. I'm definitely going to get around to it and NOT going the home depot route like most people. I'll keep the thread updated.

There are a few lips from overseas that fit perfectly.

A Renault? Bumper looks too long on the sides but I could be wrong. Maybe you posted the wrong link? If not, I like it but no idea how to get one. Be nice to find an aftermarket lip that is inexpensive unless there's a cool one that fits perfectly. That would be worth it for sure. Has anyone tried fitting a Colt Turbo lip by chance?

Not sure what you are asking.

The front lip from a Renault Laguna is a perfect match for a CSM bumper.
