If you need a hand with it, holla at me. I'm off work today and could swing by and take a look at it with you.

Sorry man,
My phone crashed on me yesterday afternoon and I spent several hours trying to get information off of it before I restored it. I could possibly swing by in evening the next couple of days.

My phone is back up now.

That spoiler lip would take about 1 min. to get off. It is only held by clips into the bumper cover. Grab it and pull straight out. You won't like what the lower bumper looks like, though....you will want another spoiler lip on it.....

It doesn't pull off it's part of the actual bumper. It's hard to describe unless you see it

You are talking about the black spoiler lip, correct? The lowest part of the front bumper that is not painted? Looks sortof like this?

That peice will snap out of the front bumper. It is held in by tabs that point in towards the bumper, so all you have to do is pull straight out. It is actually two pieces (see pic) so sometimes I start in the middle and work my way out.
