    Default VXR/XP Rear bumper skirt - urgent help needed

    Hi Guy's,

    My car is currently in the bodyshop getting a few bits done and i've just had a call saying they can't get the VXR/XP rear bumper skirt to fit. It is a genuine brand new part i have supplied them and i have also the VXR exhaust insert fitted. I'm away to the bodyshop now to see if i can assist but if you can provide any advise that would be greatly appreciated?

    Any close up pics of the diffuser & XP skirt fitted would also be greatly appreciated.

    Problem sorted. They were trying to fit the skirt while the bumper was off the car, the flex of the bumper resulted in the skirt not fitting properly. As soon as the bumper was on the car the skirt fitted like a glove.

    In 10 months ownership it has been an amazing transformation with no expense spared and i have loved every minute of it. Now i will concentrate on the interior mods

    If your interested here's my progress thread on VVOC showing the change.
