    Default Fitting XP Splitter

    Hi guys

    I've got a genuine Vx XP splitter which I'm going to try and paint and fit at the weekend. Do I need any fixings or clips for this, or can I just use tigerseal to secure it to the bumper?

    Thanks

    Tigerseal in my experience is incredibly strong so it will be fine. Is it the front or rear our fitting ?? Im unsure about the front but when I fitted my rear, I also screwed it into the arches. I didnt think it was needed but worth doing, looks neater too as the clips stick out a little otherwise.

    Yer, guess there would be. Its worth screwing in. They only go into the arch, simple job. Also, if its like the rear, the screw holes will stick out if you dont screw them in.

    Thats going to look smart in red mate

    Screws and bodywork don't always go together very well...

    Best thing to bond bodywork is windscreen adhesive.
    Once cured, it ain't coming off !
