I just looked at the kit and the demo for installation and I was surprised to see it the front chin in glued on... I'm not sure if I like that. Is that what you did?

Yes, that gave me pause as well. I contacted Razzi and they send the glue with the kit and that it can be removed with some kind of chemical. I never planned on removing the ground effects so it didn't matter much to me, but I did like knowing that the option was available.

Added a few new pics of my new hood, vertical door mod, and paint practice area (aka: engine compartment).

I also wanted to say that if anyone going with the Razzi ground effects, avoid using the glue they provide. Getting it off proved just about impossible. Instead I invested in some xps blocks cut to fit perfectly between the bottom of the front bumper and the ground effects. This creates enough pressure to prevent the lip from lifting, which seems to be the only purpose to the glue anyway.
