    Default FAO anyone who's fitted ther own VXR insert.

    Right I thought the insert was a direct swap. Picked mine up today, got it all sprayed, offered it up to find these in the way.



    Its a little leg that is part of the bumper and the original insert mounts to it. I take it I need to cut it off, where did you guys cut it, right at the top where the main bumper starts or just so its out of sight?

    Cheers

    Cut them off as mentioned or do what I did and bend them under then self tap them to under body as an extra secure fitting.

    Cheers, notice you also have to pilot your own holes for the wing fixings as well.
