Right, I've finally got the money (well will have in a week) for a full bodykit... I've heard the front and back bumper to fit are a piece of piss? Do the existing bumpers just unscrew and the new ones fit or what? I'm sorta new to all this modifying...

Thanks,

Kyle

Buy Max Power this month. It comes with a copy of "revs" which tells you exactly how to do it, in not very much detail

I know its probably not the best of kits but I just want my corsa to have a bodykit n stuff... Just to make it look nice although the speed is shit.. Do you think this kit would be hard to fit mate?

thanks

A bodyshop quoted me 900 to fit and spray... Correct me if I'm wrong, but that seems alot of money to pay for someone to fit?

to be honest if you got another person who can help and something to shave bits off if needs be to help it fit have a go, just takes time and like you said 900 alot of money,

The kit on ebay loks like combat 1 sideskirts, Combat 2 rear bumper, and aggresor front i think of fly cather, and i dont think think the combat parts are from PSG.

well its cheap lets put it that way my kit cost 615 quid. and as far as fit straight on its 50/50 there will be variation in every bumper of the same type even from the same mould, and bits almost never fit as good as vaux fitted oem originals

My rear went on straight away, but the front (FK Automative) was a bitch to fit.
In a way its quite good to get a second hand kit as you know it fits.
Have you bought that kit?
