    So my front lip has the tendency to bottom out and scrape on the ground every time I hit a driveway or steep slope causing the front lip to raise up on the bumper scratching it all which ways to hell. I was thinking there's gotta be some kind of clip on thin rubber door lining stuff or SOMETHING that I can attach at the top potion of the lip to keep it from scratching all the damn time, also hoping it will hide any gaps. Any ideas or suggestions? Here's kinda what I'm looking for;

    It needs to be something made for something thin like some kind of door or cabinet trim that almost "clips" on. Come to think of it.. anyone know that rubber molding stuff on the corolla side skirts? That stuff would be perfect!

    Or this;

    Yeah, I'm going to say that there is an OEM option for filling the gaps on there.... you should be able to get it from any car, it's probably a roll of the stuff. Although I think that it would still be a problem, since that is more of a filler, and less of a cap for the top of the lip.

    Probably not, I imagine any weather stripping you find would be all old and ratty.

    LOL... the weather stripping won't help that lip Roach! But I was thinking the same thing.... cause you know I had that lip (it's the one that fell off on the highway), and it would bottom out and scrape up the bumper like crazy.

    I'll either find some door molding or something that sticks on for doors to seal drafts and stuff and see how that turns out.
