I've heard about this issue with the kit.

I'm not too sure on how to fix it, Aaron should chime in soon about it, he's had this kit for quite some time.

I think people were taking that pink house stryofoam and cutting it to fit under the bumper.

Yeah, that is a common problem with the kit, although yours is about the most extreme drooping I've ever seen. It can happen on pretty much all the straight edges including the openings in the front and rear fascia. It's because the kit is made of flexible urethane and if it gets hot it gets soft and starts to droop, then cools and eventually wants to stay like that. Mine did that everywhere after 3-4 years.

My solution was to reinforce all the edges with some aluminum bar stock to keep them straight. I took both the fascia off and cut my bars to length then used some gorilla glue (which is urethane based) and some clamps to hold them in place. Just don't use too much since it expands and runs a bit as it's drying. The other thing you can also do is cut a wedge of some type of squishy foam and glue it to the crash support in front of the headlight so when you put the fascia on the foam will support that spot.

Cool I will look into it - The shop that did the kit is a re-re - I like the urethane kit as it takes hit Much better then the stock or FG kits. Mine was not that bad but I don't have an un-sunny place to park during the day. And it was hot - Guess i will have to wait for a hot day again and try to form it right. Means taking the kit off oh well.. I guess I could use the topedo heater, in the garage to speed it up some.
