    Thumbs up VXR Rear Insert now on !

    OMG !!! What a right pain in the Harris this was to fit !
    To help me on my merry way i removed the bumper.
    First problem was taking the old trim off. Because it's XP spec, the back bumper has a trim that sits over the insert. This is bonded onto the bumper shell and without wanting to damage it, i had to work round it !
    It's a right git of a job just to get the old trim piece out. In the end i used a sharp blade and sliced the lugs off the old insert.
    Secondly, the battle began to fit the VXR insert without damaging either it or the bumper. It took nearly an hour of gentle manipulation before it finally popped into place. If the folks next door had been watching, it'd have looked like i was wrestling with an Anaconda !
    Anyway heres the finished artical all polished up and a nice coat of Collinite 915 applied to protect it.
    I was up at 9:30am after finishing work at 6am and after all that, i'm completely Knackered ! I need sleep.

    Enjoy the pictures and if your thinking of doing the same and you have an XP.......... DON'T CALL ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !





    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
