Journey lip on a 07-08 journey installation pics with templates

Hey guys, just installed my lip on my journey and thought I'd share a few pics for those who are a bit confused on the Infiniti templates. It was not as easy as I thought but after 2 hours it was not bad. Hope these pics help as reference for any who is confused.



Template A and B installed



Bottom go template B where you are shown where to drill the holes



Template C


And now for a test fit


Finally done




Hope this helps anyone and good luck

Thanks for the write up! The car looks awesome with the lip on. I should be receiving my lip on Tuesday!

Is your grill the OEM midnight black or was it a DIY? Looks good!

Did you have to use any of those (4) washers to make up for any gaps? (figure 19 in the instructions) or did yours fit perfect? Just got mine today and the only thing your pics didn't include was template D but that seems pretty straightforward, After reading the instructions along w/ your actual install pics it looks pretty simple. Did you have a roller or "burnish" (whatever the hell that is, lol) to apply pressure to the lip after taping it down or just pressed it w/ pressure moving along the tape? After installing my rear oem spoiler w/out instructions or templates this should be a walk in the park
Thanks again

I used all the washers that came with the lip( i threw away my instructions so i dont know which washers you are talking about sorry. As for Template D, this was a PITA(Pain in the A**). I tried fitting that template like how the instructions said, and after about half an hour of messing with it , i decided to not use it. What i did was line up the lip and screw in the first two screw in the from (dont screw them all the way in) and line up the lip on the edge of the bumper (Where template D would go) and mark the hole where the screw will go. If you got all the other holes lined up correctly, then you wont need to use Template D since the lip will show you where the screw would go. Good luck! Trust me, you will love the final product! i love my lip every time i see it

Good write up, could have used this prior to my installation! This lip completely transforms the front of the car, love it!

Gnmtl'91, thanks again for your pics. Here's a pic of template D for those interested and a pic of my installed lip.



At least one part of my bumper is no longer pitted (or filthy, lol)
