    Default shock horror, naked exhaust exposed

    Well i went to pick the car up after having the exhaust fitted. I saw it and was quite impressed overall. Think the left box needs to move over a tad to make equal spacing. Anyone got duals on who can give me a measurement how far from each corner of the skirt they go?

    Anyways i come home and went to offer up the Irmscher lower skirt and to my shock and horror it was too big!!

    I ordered part number ****454 which was supposed to be the right one, I'm guessing it should be ****453

    Gonna take some piccies of the naked exhaust undressed tomorrow in proper daylight.

    Then off to the Vx Stealers to price up some bits and bobs.


    so overall i'm about 80% happy with todays effort. The lower skirt and pee'd me off no end i can tell ya...

    Time for a drink me thinks

    I should be more specific. The lower bit is too wide for the bumper. You line it up at one end and the over end goes past the end of the bumper by about 2-3inchs

    Either i need a smaller lower skirt or i need a bigger bumper

    dont think they can be adapted, at either end they taper off in a curve shape to fit up nice and snugly in the corners. Would mean lopping of a section in the middle. But i reckon they might have their numbers mixed up, or i'm going totally damn nuts..

    even the end bits that tuck up are slightly the wrong shape. Most of the slots line up though but seems bumper/skirt are 2 slighty different shapes....
