I suppose like any fibreglass bodykit theres a bit more prep work involved, but i got my bodykit from AWC and am pretty happy with the quality of it. I had an issue with my rear skirt and they offered me a replacement free of charge which i thought was very professional of them.

SVO gets their kits from AWC ... so it is one and the same :D

Mine has been fine ... although part of my kit is the plastic Ford factory kit of another forum member ... but some of it is fibreglass as well ... and you can't tell the difference after getting it all painted.

you should look at buying the new rear bar without the reverse lamp cutout, and fitting the new tail lamp's with reverse lamps in them, looks alot neater IMO

It would look good in acid riush with blackouted bits. Acid rush is by far the hardest ford colour to match however so make sure you get a good panelbeater to match it.

My mates acid rush XR6T ute was in an accident a year or so ago and they had to respray it 3 times to get it to match. The accident was on the front and they ended up having to respray the whole cab and blend it with the tub.
