How does it look from the side James? I would imagine the front now looks lower than the rest of the car no? Are body kits quite easy to get for an FC? I think id quite like something like this on mine now..


\'stock\' front are getting hard to find and they break easy as they old n quite low esp if you lowered ur rex. i\'ve broken mine already!! =( but will try n fix.

if u want side skirts then i think ptaylor on here has some left otherwise if u want to try and repair a broken one then benlewismay has some unless he scrapped them.

aftermarket kits like gp sport (check out ptaylors) can get from replikit.
else import from usa, lots there. =)

How easy are the body kits to put on? do they tend to just cover the original body or do you need to take things off the car? If Pete sees this could you let me know what you have left dude?

Thanks guys! :)

the front is just held on by a few screws and also the side skirts are just a few screws on the underside then part of it clips into the side of the car nr the wings and a couple of holds need to be drilled but easy job.

That is a very very nice kit. Exactly what i am looking for.. nothing too extreme but brings the car down a bit.

Is that the style Pete is selling?

Retro, the car kind of goes in stages now from front to back. What i mean is the front bumper is about an inch or so lower than the base of the side skirts and they are in turn about an inch or so lower than the begining of the rear bumper which of course tapers up as it goes back. Like a jumbo jet. Lol. But you knew all that already. What i\'m saying is the side profile all makes sence and looks as it ought to.
 
Anyway i think the front splitter looks superb and worth every penny! It\'s amazing what a little change can amount to.
 
GP sports body kit just looks the muts nuts though! Sooooo mean!:D And with the wide arches on it!? Hoh!:yes

ah retro, just had a look at my car, egi, which has a front splitter, its egi one, not as nice as those TII ones. But anyway, it comes down about the same distance as the TII one but is pretty much inline with the rest of the car, ill try n grab a pic later. Basically the TII splitter wouldn\'t make part of the car look lower than the rest :D

You guys post your pictures to mock my N/A don\'t you? haha.. AND to make me jealous about not having a kit on it..

Ade - The guys can\'t paint the spoiler white.. :( . So i\'m going to have to try someone else which puts it on hold for a few weeks/months.. Hopefully they are dropping it back off at me tonight.. I should put it on while its red so i can look super cool! haha..

I WANT A BODY KIT!!

Why can\'t they paint it? Its been resprayed before so shouldn\'t be a problem. A good undercoat should sort the difference in colour out I would think.

I honestly have no idea.. they explained to me though.. i think it was something about it bubbling because it was spongey.. I\'ve got a mate who is going to try.. failing that its out with the spray cans!

If you do it remember to key the paint on the spoiler first so the new paint will stick to it.

The spoiler is spongey.. if you squeeze it its soft and spongey.. spongey is a good word. I\'m just going to get tipex and do it.. i\'ll be driving so fast you wont see the dodgeyness of it.

Its spongey but only slightley, you really have to push your finger into it to get any give. Good luck with getting it done anyway G!:chat
