Seriously though Al, how easy is it to fit a bodykit once it's all painted? Something I'm toying with for next years budget :ihih:

I found it very easy Tim. I had never fitted one before either. The secret, like most jobs is preparation. Mark everything out before you stick anything on. Tape the kit on to check it looks ok. When you know its right, re-mark it, pipe the bonding adhesive on and stick it together. Tape it all up until its secure :idea:

Dupery Super Al, thanks. Always wondered how they were attached - I remember in the old days of the Orion and Sierra you had to screw a rail to the underneath of the sills and then clip the bodykit to it. The bonding sounds a much simpler idea. I will see what next year brings and see if the budget will stretch that far...:ihih:

depends onthe quality of the kit, offer it up first and make sure it fits where it should !
then remove it, paint it and refit, i see yours is black, so base coat and 2k lacquer, just done my bonnet, didn't use ebony basecoat, used black ral2005 , perfect match ! :smilewinkgrin:

plenty of lacquer give you something to polish, if it gets inclusionsin it !

god i sound like a painter !:LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL:

Alot of my car needs respraying - bonnet, rear bumper and need to have the bl**dy dent taken out of the rear wheel arch and then needs blowing into the door and frong wing. I don't want to think about it at the moment - as means spending a lot of dosh! :sad:
