Today after nearly three months my XR style bodykit kit is all fitted to my car. Here is how it all unfoulded
1. My brother is a painted and it took him about 1 1/2 months to get off his a*** and start it and when he finally started it he didnt fix up the imperfections cause he is slack.
2. Then after another two weeks the guy that was fitting it for me, a worker of my old mans started fitting it, we got the front lip on, looked at the side skirts and he didnt like how they fitted in the guards so that got done during the next week.
3. Then the next complication the back lip didnt fit and the local panel beater couldnt work it out so we took the bumper off and sent it to AWC with lip. They got it and it was damaged and stratched so they had to patch it up glued it on and sent it back.
4. Got it back today fitted it up and besides all the scratches it looks good.
5. But the whole rear bumper will now need to be resprayed.

So hopefully i can get my brother moving and get it done some time soon aswell as the red stripe painted the same colour.
Need to clean her before i post pictures up. Hopefully Monday night they will be upImage

My tickford AUII skirt was a pain to fit so i complained to AWC and they explained to me that they get contractors to make some of the kits they sell, and that my kit wasn't made by them. Also they offered me a full replacement on the rear skirt so i was very happy about that.

Yeah i am very happy with it as it didnt cost me anything. Got the kit for my birthday and my brother painted it for nothing. Soon we are taking it off the road for a week or so and pulling front and rear bumpers off and respraying them as well as colour coding the red stripe
