I like it :) You gotta try to get some nice agressive looking side skirts and rear bar to go with it. Problem with a nice front like that is getting the rest of the car to compliment it so it doesn't look out of place. Got any plans?


Yeah want a series 3 XR Rear bar and side skits...
- i think the mesh in the rear bar will match the front...
- considering spraying the inside of the front bar like the BF GTs (dark grey on the inside) so if i do this the kit will match (the bottom of it can be sprayed a diff colour.. Not sure if its only the rebel edition or if its all of them)

Ok it doesn't fit so i need to either cut away the metal in the way (don't want to do) Or

Cut way a part of the front bar to make it fit...

My Question is can i just grab the hack saw and cut it or do i have to do something else...

the bar still needs to be bogged and primed and painted so not to worried about the finish yet......

and hears a day pic... because i cant get it on properly the right side of the car isnt pulled around

the bar looks to be tilted out a bit, and the bonnet isn't closed. It should line up.

I really like it man, looks good

how much do you think to cut off to get the bar to fit?may be same on other side,will change the look and strength of the bar.when its fitted,neatly trim the cut out---is it glass or plastic?

its glass... will need to cut 3-4 cm into it one both sides... wont effect the look because its at the top of the holes which you'd have to be laying on the ground to see...

- just want to know if i can cut fibre glass...? It wont effect the look or structure of the bar...

best to cut will be 4inch grinder with cutting disc and wear face mask for dust and wash hands as soon as possible,it itches -glass fibres.
