Teaser: IND's RKP CRT lip

I just took delivery of IND's replica CRT lip. I ordered mine in a frozen finish and a jet black accent strip to match the rest of the black accents on Heidi. The finish and quality of the lip appears to be top notch, and while I've never seen a CRT in the flesh, this lip looks exactly like the one I've ogled in numerous pictures. As with the Evo Sport GTS rep lip, IND had to sacrifice an OEM CRT lip in order to create the mold for this one.

I plan on installing the lip this weekend, and will upload high-res glamour shots of the lip then. In the meantime, these poorly lit iPhone 4 shots will have to suffice.

Stay tuned for more in a few days. In the meantime, if anyone is interested in detail shots of the lip in other angles or lighting conditions, let me know and I'll try to oblige.

Edit: Updated with some quick and dirty fitment shots.

Edit 2: Updated with installed pictures. Better quality pictures are forthcoming.

INSTALL THAT ASAP!!!!!!

I can't wait to see this thing finally mounted on a car. Good call going with the frozen finish. I'm curious to hear how the clear coat stands up to some road abuse.

You should respray your rear spoiler and side view mirrors in frozen clear coat as well

2k... the lip looks like it can be made from using only one mold... ind might have sacrificed one person to capture space materials to make this lip too with matte clear coat... oh no... maybe the lip was bought for 1k, of course a business has to mark up a product 100% to cover marketing costs

Updated with a quick and dirty fitment test. I'll have installed pics up on Friday afternoon.

I don't mind saying that it looks really good on the Space Gray given all the other black accents Heidi has.

These should have been made out of poly. At least poly would give a bit when nudging a curb.

Definitely quite an expensive piece, but it sure looks damn good! I definitely prefer it without the red strip!

More pics ASAP!

Looks good, congrats, any pics from a lower view point front on and maybe one from the side to see how far it sticks out from the bumper?

Looks like there would be some interference...

That, and will probably look like overkill.
