is it an original walky kit?

the lower lip on the front bumper on original walky's has stone protection stuff on it...

but other than that a car bra is the only way, and stay a bit further back from cars in front, and right away from trucks in front

remember it's so low to the ground now, it's gonna get hit

you may as well put up with it and get "blowins" done every now and again, like every 6 months or whenever before any shows or events ya enter.

Its pretty hard to to have it chipped, its just something youll have to live with

Not all of the genuine walky's came out with the stone chip guard, but it was an option that most buyers bought. I still think a few stone chips looks better than the whole lip having a rough paint job.
