Hey guys I finally got to take my car for a drive today after a couple weeks due to all this snow! Bad news is that I realized that a piece chipped off my front lip and I don't know whether I should buy a new one or theres a way to fix this?

well, since you're thinking about replacement, i guess trying to fix by yourself isn't that risky.

Do you have the piece that chipped off? if yes, I'd use clear epoxy and glue it down with it.

If not, I'd break a piece of similar size from the underside, then grind it and mix it into clear epoxy.

In either case, after filling the gap, use clear wrap to get a nice flush glassy look. Keep in mind epoxy will bond with neighboring material so you can go the route of wet sanding with 2K-5k finish to get it looking nice and shiny again. If the chip is too big (can't tell size from the pic), you should probably do the fill in a few coats instead of one large chunk.

Good luck!
