Anyone installed VS EC-1?

OK my Veilside is in the mail and should take about a week to get here. I was wondering if anyone has installed the Full EC-1 kit before? Is it hard or should i let the body shop do it? hmm im not really a great do it yourself guy but i try. I think i may be to scared to force it into the right place if it takes a bit of force. this is all original so its not the replica BS. i have the...

Ec-1 Front bumper
Ec-1 Side skirts
Ec-1 Rear valence
Ec-1 Spoiler
FFGT Hood

all of them bolt on with ease or? i herd directly from veilside that i had to remove the head lights to install the front bumper. he said the sides were cake. and the back may be a bit trouble some. the Hood and the spoiler sound easy enough but do i trust myself...

VS has perfect fitment
just take it to a prestigious
body shop that has done body
kits before that was my mistake
when i first painted my kit..
as for install not hard at all
but i would think if you just
dropped the kit off and not the car
they wont match the color exactly thumbsup

yeah ok im cheap so im gonna do it myself...besides whats better than working on your celly for a couple hours jammin to some tunes in the nice warm summer sun:). Heh, better call in some reinforcements and a case of beer to speed along the process though. They have the paint code that was written on the inside of the door panel so it should be close enough.

you should be fine. i installed my veilside ffgt kit myself. went really smooth but just make sure you pre fit everything. please be carefull, you should not have to force anything, especially being authentic veilside it should fit up perfect.

I don't think I would try to install the kit and drink at the same time... But as for after, pound away... cheers
