EVO X Front Lip Install Guide

Of course after you have purchased a new EVO X front lip, the next step is to make sure you learn how to install it. The installation process is quite easy and the best way to start that process is to get a lift ,  since you most definitely will need it and since you cannot do it alone, you will need someone else to help you through. Some of the other tools you will need include a trim remover, Philips screwdriver, a socket wrench of 10mm, pliers, masking tape, shop towels and of course material that can be used for degreasing.  An important point about using the masking tape is to make sure that you always make sure that the surface is oil free before you apply the masking tape.
