Universal Lip Kit
This document covers the fitment of your Universal Lip and also some tips and tricks.
1. The most important step of all! Thoroughly clean your bumper or surface prior to applying
the lip. Bumpers are naturally dusty, even a light film of dust will prevent the adhesive from
taking effect. If the tape gets any dust or grim on it, you will need to get hold of some new
tape as it will be ruined.
We suggest cleaning the surface with ‘Wax and Grease removed’ or ‘Prepsol’. Once clean,
wipe over with a clean microfiber cloth and then let settle on a warm dry day.
Don’t cut the lip! Until you are sure of your length. If anything, leave a few cm’s extra and
cut that off once fitted.
3. Cut some V’s in your corners! If you are intending on using the lip on a bumper, you will
most likely need to make it go around a corner or two. In its current form, the lip will curve
down when going around a corner. To get a nice even surface, try cutting some V’s out of
the tape section as in the picture.
4. Take it easy! Once you have your surface clean and dry &corners marked out, carefully
remove a small section of the red tape and begin to stick to your surface. Take it slowly and
make sure that it is straight. Once the tape it stuck, it can’t be removed. If removed, it will be
ruined. No second chances without purchasing more tape.
If you’re not sure whether or not you got good adhesion or just want a more permanent
fixture, try using some self taping screw and screw the lip to your bumper. They will need to
be space out by around 15cm at most with one at the tip of each end. A little more effort
and a couple of dollars for peace of mind!
5. Almost there! Once fitted, trim the ends with some sharp scissors and you’re done!
1. The most common problem is dirty or wet tape which will result in a lip not properly
attached to the bumper. Often the bumper wasn’t properly clean, was damp or the tape
was stuck and then unstuck to re-align.
If this sounds like your case, don’t settle for a half done job. Your lip will probably fall off
next time you drive and all will be lost altogether. You have 2 options below, a combination
of both is even better!
We suggest that you head down to Bunnings or your local automotive store and look for a
roll of 3M acrylic automotive tape or similar. It usually comes in widths from 10-20mm. It
will set you back between $5 & $20 depending what you choose. Remove as much of the
original tape as possible and have another go, Good luck!
Alternatively if you want a more permanent fixture, try using some self taping screw and
screw the lip to your bumper. They will need to be spaced out by around 15cm at most with
one at the tip of each end.
