Lambos from C2

Well..I should be getting lambos from C2 Next week!! Im just wondering if anyone has ever installed these types of things themselves before?? I got an estimate from my body shop and they want 400 bones to intsall the hinges. That seems high to me..? Anyone?

If they are direct bolt-ons then you should try to do it your self...

hey saspence, yea if they r direct bolt ons then no drilling should be required and as far as i remember that's wut gas said too. but yea ask him and u'll get ur answers for sure. also fenders are easy to remove, you do have to remove ur bumber that the fenders off. also do it ur self with a help of a buddy. i've actually helped my friend install the carexcess kit and it took us about 5 hrs, so yea the process is easy but takes time. so good luck on and do it ur self, if you have time that is. also let us get the review on it to as like many ppl my name is on the group buy and i'm waiting anxiously. thumbsup

sop what was the price? i know c2gas was thinking below $1000 american dollars, but thats before shipping from europse. also, if they are not direct bolt-ons (he said they would be--but check) then installation costs will be added to that.

so, if the springs are $1000, shipping $200, and install $400...your better off going with the decah vdc (phatcellygt for carexcess version, jamey for springmans version) which are direct bolt-on (do it yourself) and are $1,200.

jamey has said in the past that he could get someone a good deal on the springmans modified decah vdc kit. wouldn't hurt to drop him a pm and see whats up. thumbsup

yep definitely take pics. and as far as removing the fenders go well there are a few bolts you have to take off. some r in the door crease and some are in the Hood. also when you remove the bumper u'll c the others. sorry i don't have instructions or pics. hope this helps, and perhaps someone else my actually have the instructions. good luck and plz, DO NOT forget the pics. thnx
