    Default VXR insert

    I managed to get a bumper, with the XP apron for £45 complete bargain. The next step is to spray the VXR insert and fit, just wanted to know how hard it is to fit as I've heard its more difficult with the rear apron part attached.

    Yeah it is, I've just been through the pain. The rear apron overlaps the vxr insert so needs to either be taken off or released from the wheel arches and partially removed enough to get the insert sorted. Either way, you'll need to re glue the insert afterwards to make a neat job.

    If the bumpers off will it still be a pain, not sure if you mean fitting it while its still on the car?

    I had enough of a problem removing the old insert and fitting the vxr insert.
    That was without the apron!!!

    Now considering leaving the apron on, just have a single exhaust instead. I was attempting this one and I know full well I'll get annoyed and something will get broken

    It'll be easier with the bumper off but you'll still need to re glue the skirt on once you're done. Don't be put off though as it looks awesome when done...

    Stop it Rich, I said in your previous post, 'Stop posting me pictures of your gorgeous car'. You give me the urge to mod and never stop.
