Does Pakfeifer still sell their lip? I see it on their website for $300.

Add shipping to that and it gets a little out of hand.

Last I spoke to them a few years ago, I don't think they sold it.

Worst case scenario, I wonder if we could get the lip vacuum formed. I have seen some low runs done that way for other cars.

The price would be with shipping included I believe, that's how he prices all of his mr2 stuff. I'll get a legit list of people going when I get home to my computer. I'm trying to get him to take a min of 25 orders, 100 lips at 250 is $25,000 it can't cost him that much to break even. I'll give updates as I get them. I really hope he will do it with fewer orders. Also if the urethane material is the issue would anyone have a problem with frp or carbon as an optional material?

I personally am not keen on either of those options due to the long overhang of the car. The reason I got rid of my fiberglass lip is because it was so rigid that I would had broke it on the way out my driveway. I have read some FRP can be made flexible enough to handle some impact, but I am not qualified to know if a maker can do that well enough.

Urethane is the most ideal material for this and wouldnt want one made of another material.

What material would the final product be?

A few years ago I asked a local fiberglass guy who makes parts for drag cars how much to reproduce my front lip, he was around $375-$450 in gelcoat black hand laid FG & only needed 15-20 orders to start. The problem was my original lip would be damaged in the process of making the mold

I would have done a pakfiefer lip but as Josh said they stick out too far & I think it narrows too much at the front.

I hope this works out for you guys

Sorry for the delay everyone. It looks like he's not going to budge from the number of orders he needs in the group buy. Its seems insane that he needs 100 orders to brake even, he says his mold costs $3500. I mean at $250 a lip thats $25000.

Might be worth hitting up a few of the eBay companies. There has to be someone willing to do it.
