    confused LS to SRI body kit

    ~Thread coppied from VVOC~

    I am in the process of sourcing bumpers etc to change my limited spec LS into a Sporty Refined & Interesting SRI... Christmas only comes once a year and I am goig to town with Car bits for chirstmas

    I have a few questions however about doing this...

    Do I need new support / crash bars for the SRI bumpers or will the standard LS ones be ok to continue using?

    The side skirts are a delema... Should I colour code the LS ones or buy SRI ones and fit them... Is there a difference...?

    Also witht he side skirts I read before you need the end caps... As the LS ones different to the SRI end caps?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nothing new required, its all just a straight swap.

    I bought a second set of side skirts and painted them myself, decent job, but tbh cost me as much as if id just bought a set off colour coded ones off ebay or from the scrappys.

    No difference between LS and SRi end caps other than they are CC'd.

    If they fit as said they do above,... I have seen some SRIs with the end caps colour coded, could be the result of a bump or modding. Best not coded as rod rash will make them look messy

    Next step for conversion from LS to SRI are the front and rear lamp clusters
    The SRI have darkened ones

    Final step is the suspension, that ain't going to be cheap!
