Just heard that my bodykit has arrived! Thanks Alan!

There was no-one home but the courier jumped our gate and left it all around the back! Pretty cool service - it's a big gate!

Now need an excuse to leave work early... (cough cough)... actually I'm starting to feel a little sick...

If you stab your eye with a pen, most companies will let you leave early!

Mount it and paint it before the weekend please, then post pics.

Wow - have taken a look at a few of the bits - very nice! The rear arches even have hardware fitted! The whole front is drop dead gorgeous! Will be way better when it's all fitted up and painted!

For those that don't remember these are the bits, however they are now a nice shade of grey undercoat...

Hey pocketscience congrats on the purchase of the CGT kit.....i think that makes 2 of us now

just to let you know....the fitment of the kit isnt exactly a walk in the park. i got mine put on by the 'glasser' himself and he spent a solid 14hrs fitting my kit........he certainly earnt his money that day.

the kit looks F@#%ING AWSOME! on the car....totally transforms it into something else......well worth the money i rekon

i am more than happy to give you some advice on fittment....PM me and i will give you my number

i will also put some pics up on the weekend of my car with it fitted...not painted though....goes in next week for that

Heres what i found to be a rather amusing....A comparison between the new and old rear wheels and how they sit within the original arches

Going from a 175 to a 245

How did you find the thickness of the side skirts just right or a bit too thin ?

Do you have any pics of it being mounted ?

Unfortunatly i wasnt able to be there for the whole time while the kit was being fitted as i had work commitments ........best bet would be to speak to the glasser and see what he thinks about the side skirts..though as far as i know everything was sweet.

i have some pics but once again i had to leave so i haven't got the whole process but the glasser is going to send me all the pics hes got and i will put them all up as well as mine
