Tte Rear Lip


 Share

Recommended Posts

Does the rear bumper need to come off to fit the rear TTE lip? Is it an easy fitment?

I'm just trying to gauge how much work is involved in fitting the rear TTE lip. Also the TRD side skirts..

Cheers

Shouldn't need to off the rear bumper mate. I changed from a TTE lip to a TRD lip and it was a straight swap.

Be careful with the TRD skirts though, make sure your bodyshop guy is on the ball as the seal tends to peel loose if not properly applied. :o

Cheers mate. As for the seals I dont think the bodyshop guy will want to use them anyway as it can some times look like too much of an aftermarket job.. He wants to blend them in and spray but I've not got the time and money at the moment. Maybe in the future :yawn:

Ive seen an IS on the A50 witha poorly fitted TTe rear lip,it sits at an angle,and im sure someone told me for a good result to take the bumper off for fitting.Gord has the tte lip

TTE lip you dont need to take the bumper off, if its going to put on with bodyfiller then it WILL crack and look cheap in time :o

TRD you can fit without taking bumper off, but to do the job right using all the fitting kit, you will need to take the bumper off :D on other way around this to use fitting kit 100%

Maybe a few bits for JAE :winky: You still want those eyelids spraying?

Yup .... I'm still undecided on them ... so maybe spraying them may sway me :yawn:

I'm taking my car over next Saturday so let me have 'em before then mate. Either PM me or get in touch if you see me on MSN :winky:

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
