I was warned about the Challenge lip...

I was warned prior to purchasing my challenge front lip, by so many members on the forum, that the Challenge lip was low and it was inevitable that at some point there would be catastrophic operator error that would end up with it cracked or smashed in some form or manner....

It happened tonight Trying to park my car in a new parking spot led to my front lip clipping the edge of a stupidly placed raised wood plank (who leaves a wood plank raised and exposed after finalizing a construction job?!?!). Now due to someone's inability to do the job right in the first place, I have a cracked lip and a headache.

Is it possible to get the lip repaired? Who could do such a job in the area? It has a clear bra on it. Any suggestions?

Forgot to also ask... Should I forgo getting another Challenge lip, if I don't have the option of fixing my lip, or go with a Mode Carbon lip?

Thanks

I just plasti-dipped my lip after it got mangled. Might work for you too

Everything you said is true of any lip... Just gotta be mindful of what you're doing and where you go.
