Do NOT do this. Nothing looks cheesier than fake carbon fiber. People see it and say "oh you got the carbon fiber lip, nice! I like me some carbon fi--- wait... that's hydrocarbon. oh... *awkward silence*" It's like seeing someone's really nice engagement ring and then learning it's CZ. womp womp.

For me, "hillbilly" and "redneck" can be expressions of fondness. Why would you assume that they must be pejorative? Now go back to starching your underpants.
Just ignore MMD. He's a total troll and just likes to stir **** up. He just got done doing it on one of my threads. Don't feed the trolls and they'll starve. I know it's hard, but if you don't respond to their posts, eventually they go away.

It's a consumable piece. Treat it as such.

I had the same thing happen even with a front camera that I used 99.9% of the time. The 0.1% was pulling into an outdoor park parking stall to drop something off and scraped the bottom of the splitter. I have a lift so I put it on the lift and grabbed a can of gloss black and holding a piece of cardboard up to keep the spray from hitting anywhere but the bottom and bottom edge of the splitter sprayed it black. Most of my scrape was on the bottom of the splitter as the curb was low enough that the splitter didn't hit the curb head on but rode up over it and scraped the bottom.

Than I ordered that sacrificial slider thing sold by one of our vendors on the bottom of the splitter.

I haven't had a brain fart since that caused another curb encounter.
