Hi,
I will be installing my mtech bumper soon and was wondering how everyone installed their lip or add on to it. I have a replica Hamann lip, would glue screws/bolts work?
I tried to search but couldnt really find any information reguarding this. :dunno:
Thank you :)

The body shop I went to; used glue and 8 screws underneath the add-on. As of today it is still holding up.

what' does a hamman lip for an mtech look like?

I've been advised to use screws on the bottom and tape throughout. I'd also secure it on with addition zip ties for some peace of mind.

i just used screws... it's fine, i wouldn't want to use glue/tape because i can just easily remove it later
How many screws hold it in place?
