Dropped of my car at my buddies body shop to have my 6le cme installed.
They suggested molding it in, so I was all over the idea.
The valance fit very well, I am very pleased with the product 6le put out.

although i'm sure your friends painting and blending abilities are top notch....y not just respray the whole bumper to avoid the possibility of the colors being off? just a question though, the blended is definitely the way to go

I'm pretty sure he only has it masked off like that for the primer only, at least i hope!

To the op, its looking good! Any idea how exactly is this done? What type of glue etc...??

Thanks all for the complements.

Makes me want to get my DE valence blended. But the shop I talked to wasn't too keen on trying to blend my fiberglass valence with the urethane plastic bumper. The materials are too dissimilar, one flexes more than the other, so he's concerned about it cracking later.

Too bad 6LE didn't have the plastic DE valences available when I got mine! Oh well, it'll still look good.

Thank you, all credit goes to my body guy, wish I had the talent.

And it is done, best pic I have, so busy better ones may take months.
Still need to have the exhaust piping adjusted a bit, but Im very happy with the body work.
