My XR kit has arrived. Huge thanks to Bob at CCS. Arrived via courier this morning. Wont be able to fit it for a week though (unless i suddenly fall sick), as ive just had days off work:( By the way, its an EL xr kit (front, rear and side skirts), no spoiler though, cause i reckon they look heaps tougher without them. Couldnt be happier with the price either, ended up costing about half of what the local companies were quoting me. Now just have to find somewhere to spray it for me

That was my question too.
No real point in taking a sicky, i mean don't bother fitting it until it's painted (except to test that it fits right as you need to do for the CCS warrenty or what ever).

I know i'd be calling in sick. When i fitted the kit to my car it was murder waiting untill the weekend to do it.

It only takes a couple of hours to fit it, so do it in the morning and take the afternoon off. :D

Well, didnt call in sick, gonna leave it till my days off, and take my time. As for the price, cost was about $750, inc freight from canberra to cairns. Went into a couple of local places, and they were wanting around $1400, supply only!!
