Veilside FF GT = terrible fitment
this kit has terrible fitment problems. my rear bumper wouldnt even go on without considerable grinding by my shop. forget about the sideskirts ever having a flush fitment. Fiberglass Hood came warped... the only thing saving veilside in my eyes is their support and them giving me a carbon fiber Hood with no extra cost.

my front had a great fitment. my bodyshop said it was the best fitment they had ever seen with Fiberglass.

sorry to hear you got a bad kit. but Veil Side will fix the problem as fast as they can.

side skirts not being long enuff is really scary. That can't even be attributed to warping. I have come across quite a few people complaining about this kit lately. Very strange.

I have the front sides and back FF GT Kit

It fitted great, but the sides did need new holes in the front, but wasn't to bad

but the Hood was a different story cry

So the Hood didn't fit for you too that's 3 out of 3 thumbsdown

Thats not true. His rear and sides were replicas. Only the front was authentic.

heres the real story, Veilside in Japan is currently switching factory's in which they are making their products. im not sure if the old factory was producing bad stuff or the new one is adjusting the new machines. however veilside is on it to fix it. Yeah their support in fixing what is wrong is by far amazing. im sure they will be worth the money once they get things settled.

In that case, is it a good idea to get a FFGT front to match with TRD side skirt and rear confused
