I always thought it was plug n play.

Well usually you get what you pay for when it comes to bodykits, there is a reason you can buy a whole bodykit for the price of a quality front bumper, and i went for the cheap solution. I actually don't mind the work, since i would't have bought a expensive kit anyway, and working on the car is my main hobby...

But bolt on and fibreglass rarely go hand in hand...

Got polyester on the first sub box. And built the frame for the second sub box.

Both sub boxes are ready for fibreglass, so i'm soon done with the box'es but there is an enourmous amount of work to do before im finished with the trunk install :roll:
And i'm finished fitting the sideskirt's, need a bit of bondoe and sanding before they are ready for paint tho...

Progress atlast :P

Got the MPP PCM mounted, going to test new topspeed and what not this WE, obviusly without breaking any laws :roll: :lol:
The pacesetter will haveto wait a week or two since there are many other things i need to do before a Track weekend on the 13 - 15 June...

Got a thin layer of primer on the sideskirt's just to easier see what need's more bondoe and such, it's so easy to miss something when it's 3-5 different colors...

PS: The pictures looks better than IRL.

Got some work done on my DIY rear bumper today, got it box'd in, and filled it with some foam (it's called "build foam" in Norway and that's a direct translation :roll: )
