    Default Shall I fit my VXR spoiler and bumper trim myself ?

    Ok, ive had a VXR spoiler and lower bumper spoiler for a while now.

    They are currently at the body shop, all painted and ready to fit.

    My question is, do I fit it myself ?? Or do I let them do it for another £100 or so ??

    Im quite 'DIY' ish with cars, enignes are ok and I can take body parts apart easily, etc - but ive never really glued body parts on ??

    I put a new spoiler on an Escort once, RS Turbo and didnt really do a god job if im honest. We wont go there, but lets say it leaked and was a little bit 'off angle' !

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    £100..?!?!?!?!

    Do it yourself mate, dead easy, about £10 delivered for some Tigerseal and you're ready to go, the spoiler is easy, you still have a few seconds of limited movement till it sets so you'll have no worries with that, and the rear bumper spoiler screws in behind the wheel first, the the Tigerseal to hold it in place over the lower surround.

    I put mine on myself, spoiler took about 5 mins with some masking tape holding it over night, and the rear spoiler about the same.

    Thanks Dan, going to pick it all up now actually.

    Where did you get your tigerseal from ?

    Also, how long does it take to set ? Was overnight enough for your car ?

    Thanks mate

    I got mine from eBay, but I have seen it at my local factors (A1 Megastore) since though.

    It doesn't take that long mate, I left mine overnight just to be on the safe side, but after a couple of hours I couldn't budge it - just didn't fancy spending all that money for it to come flying off
