    Default Changing an SRi Lip Spoiler to a VXR one....

    As it says above really. I have the cash (ish), however not the know how.

    Anyone done this?
    DIY or body shop?
    If it's DIY, how is the old one removed?

    Some Lip Spoilers are bonded on, some are riveted. Mine is riveted on, so I had to attach my rear wing spoiler slightly forward on the car to compensate.

    I believe the VXR rear spoiler just gets bonded on with a regular bonding solution from any decent bodyshop.

    I've never done it matey (speak to Andy), but I guess it's just a case of prise it off and be careful. You may experience problems if it's riveted on though. My advice would be to check behind the inner boot lid trim.

    i havent removed an sri one, but i did have a look at my old silver sri. You have to prise off all the clips holding the carpeted trim on the inside fthe bootlid. Then you can see if its riveted on. If it is, you have to drill the rivets out. Mine was just bonded on as i couldnt see any fixings. In which case, just heat it up with a hairdryer and gently start to prise it off.

    VXR one just bonds on. Use windscreen fixing stuff as thats the strongest. I did mine at home but make sure you weight it down overnight with something heavy, especially at the ends. I just relied on tape and mine is starting to lift at the ends so needs some remedial work doing.
