I just got my TRD lip kit for my 01 camry. I've been searching and haven't been able to find the info that I need. So far I've found out that you have to modify the front and rear pieces to fit on a gen 4.5 but I have not found any specifics. Does anybody know exactly how to mod the front and rear pieces to make them fit. Any help would be great. I have all the hardware and insructions that came with the kit, will I need anything else? If someone knows what to do please let me know, pics would be great too.

I think the front and rear pcs have to be cut with a small slit right at the bend to allow it to spread wider. TubbyC can quickly confirm this though.

Here's an exagerated illustration;
The Gen4 bumper has a smaller (acute) angle like "<" whereas the Gen4.5 has a wider angle like "L"

Post pics when the kit is on :thumbup:

I modified my kit to fit on my 2000. For the front pieces all you have to do is grind/sand the angled lip. First you have to take off all of the doubled sided tape that sits on it (re-apply later). Then grind/sand it down till its pretty flat. I did it with a Dremel. The rears fit but there will be a gap. All you need is some spacers and some long bolts. The sides fit perfectly. Just do some test fits to know what needs to be done.

^ don't excpect me to share the prize with you if I win on "Roll up the rim" :p:

When you guys are about to put on the kit, my only suggestion is to clean and prep the surface properly to ensure a strong bond. I forgot to apply the adhesive promoter provided on one side and my side skirt came off during the winter. I wasn't able to re-do it until it warmed up enough in mid.late spring. I had to go boro and duct tape it :eek::
