yup 40mm needs to be cut off the end, and then a new end on it. it does sit on, but with the clips you need longer clips and it sits to high and pops out. so it doesnt really clip straight in.

no it deff looks good but will only look good if you have the front and rear done, looks much better, doesnt look tacky, id post a pic off mine but i cant get one, so if someone is able to find a pic off mine and post it would be greatful, give u a chance to look at it on the car, its not time consuming it took me about 20hrs for both.

Why not put the FPV side skirts? They look better then the standard XR ones.

deff looks much better than your normal restricted body kits for the falcons, i should have a BA xr front bar but will only fit a fairmont, deff looks good a worth the investment, be around $900 for the front bar.

but the side skirts is where i started at first
