Default RB1 front end

I need a new front bumper cover and i was wondering if anyone had the racing beat type 1? I want something cool but not as aggressive as the type 2. I also want the OEM front lip to fit on it. I havent been able to find any good pictures of a type 1, so if anyone has any post em up.

thanks

ummm, why would you add the oem lip to the RB front? the RB already has the brake ducts built in.

i believe the rb1 nose is a half bumper so your original bumper has gotta be in good shape, mine was wrecked so i went with the rb2(3rd car in)

here's another pic of his ride



no chance I'd bother putting the eom lip on it....it would sit flush and it would look odd.

not really: http://www.gomiata.com/racbeattypin.html

The TYPE I Kit is designed as a half-shell that fits over the existing nose to allow for easy installation. (This nose does not relace the existing nose.) The upper edge of this nose fits into the groove below the parking lights.

Is it a DIY install, or is it a body professional install?
