3.0R 04-06 STI style front lip!

3.0R 04-06 STI style front lip!

Postby ULTREX » Sat Apr 02, 2011 1:57 pm

Guys - finally had a chance to check out all our lips on the 04-06 3R.

And whilst the lip was not bolted on- we held it up in position to check out how they all fitted.

And I have to say - good news! :)

The MY04-06 STI style PU lip also fits the MY04-06 3R. It lines up great all around the side and front....there is a section in the front where there will be a slight gap of about 5cm each side but this will only be viasable if you are down on your hands and knees looking.

The pictures below are a bit dodgey as hard ot hold it and take the pictures but you can see it lines up spot on.....

For most customers I think you will be very happy with it....if you are looking for the worlds most famous show car 3.0R, and dont want the small gap, then you need to buy a Subaru direct lip....but as I say, you will only see it if you are on hands and knees. The lip is the perfect length and shape and will line up and look good , but there will be the 2 small gaps as per pictures below.

See below

below is drooping because its held there - needs to be attached - but you can see it lines up spot on.

and here is the gap that will be there that I mentioned.

and this is the lip you need http://www.ultrex.com.au/subaru-liberty ... p-341.html


Special thanks to matlib12 for making time for me to use the car to test!:)
Cheers

Rob,

Do your lips have the bolt-on bracket in the middle like the factory ones? If so does this line up with th 04-06 3.0R-B also?

Hi - there is a built in bracket in the middle - didn't checkbox it lines up though.
However this lip will be bolted on ( or self tapper screws) so when thats done, it will keep it up nice and tight under the front bar. The larger hole near the wheel arche looked like they would line up but non of that's critical if they don't line up and the bolts will keep it sitting properly.
Cheers

clicking on your link, it shows the lip for 04-06 2.0T/2.5lt models and states that it will not fit 3.0R? or is the site yet to be updated to include the addition of the lip for the 3.0R?

Damnit, I'd hoped your pictures would convince me.
What are your thoughts.

Are you happy with it?
