Drill holes on Arkym frnt lip: need advice

I have just ordered an Arkym CF front lip, which is beautifully crafted and the fitment should be superb according to many opinions on the forum.

Yet the only issue that i run into is that i need to drill holes on the lip before i install bolt it onto the bumper and tape it. And I've heard that using inappropriate drill will crack the lip...so i wonder if i can get some advice on using the right tool and perhaps the proper way to install it.

Thanks for your input

they usually fit without drilling required. not sure where you got yours but i would return. although its not a big deal since you already have it just use a very small drill to start and go from there.

no you dont need any special drill to use you just have to drill on the right angle. If your drill bits is sharp enough then you wont have this issue.

Yes! I just had the lip drilled few hrs ago and gladly it bears no crack. I tried to find the smallest and sharpest drill possible from Home Depot and that was working fine.

Although the holes are slightly bigger than the previous lip on the car but the bumper screws have washer so it should be fine.

Thank you for all your opinions =)

Strange how you just ordered one and your holes weren't pre-drilled.
