Yes can do the flatting yourself, and it will save you a pretty penny... it is time consuming but worht the saving... the will do the final prep (primer and paint)... am tacling this job myself on exactly these splitters. [:D]

They had mine in stock the last one there ring them up and ask them they might have one or they will have to order it in, they usually have next day deliveries anyway.

v6 fronts are all ways 5mm short on each side.

but when i had front bumper off to put new smooth one on had to take vallance off old bumper and noticed why they never go on right.

so when you put new one on i would advise taking front bumper off

flip it over on a piece of carpet so it dont scatch

then you can see all clips and make sure they all go in right,

its the end ones to watch as these stretch and pull the bumper in properly.

bugger, they phoned me this morning, and only the front one had ben delivered, so now ive got to wait till tuesday to pick them both up, i thought it was going too well,

another thing is is it best to fit them first and then get then painted or can they be gone seperate and fit them after painting,

as i dont want to loose my car for a couple of days if i can help it, or will they flex too much, and not look right when fitted?

thanks matt

get them done before fitting.

gave mine straight to JBS to do all the work.

went down week later to have them put on the car

took 20 mins to fit.
