    DIY Front Lip

    Hey Guys!

    So I was looking at getting a front lip but didn't realize they were so expensive! So I set out to build my own and had a buddy help me. We went to the Home Depot and picked up some materials.

    What I bought:
    1. 9 Ft. Garage Door Liner
    1. Roll of 3M outdoor double sided tape
    4. Self-taping screws

    This is what we came up with after about 10 minutes!

    Anyone else build their own lip?

    DIY Home Depot lips have been around for a while.

    Your implementation came out alright.

    Nothing wrong with that. Like I said, your implementation doesn't look bad.

    It has helped because where I live the roads are always 2-3 feet below the parking lots. It has held up pretty well so far.
