2018 Style 3D Carbon Fiber Bumper Overlays

Call it what you want, but these vinyl overlays give your vehicle the appearance of a larger lower grille area. It mimics a look similar to the 2018 front bumpers. The material is high quality, textured 3D carbon vinyl. Great resistant to the elements for a long lasting look.

Cover up the JDM license plate holes and any minor paint blemishes in this area of your bumper.

This premium material is it is made with is rated for 5 years of outdoor durability. Built in air egress liner makes installs much easier.

This is a vinyl product and has no actual carbon fiber content. Machine cut. This is NOT a universal product. The material has been cut down specifically for this application.

Installation

NOTE: Upper vinyl piece may need no heat or special instructions to install. Please follow the guidelines below if you still have difficulty installing it though.

It is easier to install the lower piece without a front lip mounted to the bumper. Without a lip present, you can stretch the material with heat underneath the bumper with ease. However, we installed this by loosening the front lip but not completely removing it.

NOTE: This material responds well to heat. It aids in contouring / stretching and removing creases. It also makes the material adhere to surfaces better. Do not overheat the material. A general rule of thumb is that if you can take the heat without burning yourself, then the material can as well.

Recommended items:

  • Hair Dryer / Heat Gun
  • Soapy water mix / Quick detailer spray
  • Friend (recommended)

Clean the surface of your bumper. Leave a water / soap mixture on the surface and apply this mixture or quick detailer to the bottom of the overlay as well. This will make it easier to slide the overlay into position. Once you have centered the overlay, push out the remaining water / air bubbles with your fingers. Be sure not to damage the material.

Once the center portion is placed down and the alignment is proper, slowly use heat to conform the ends, one side at a time.

Use a hair dryer or heat gun (apply light heat) on the corners. This heats up the adhesive and allows the material to stretch and fit all contours. Here's where your buddy can help the most. Have them heat up the area you are working on as you stretch the material with your fingers. With heat, you can stretch and massage out almost any crease. Allow 24-48 hours before washing vehicle. Having the vehicle sit in direct sunlight for a period of time helps the material bond.
