Blitz Kit

My baby has been at the shop for a month now and its probably going to be at the shop for a couple more weeks.The guy is slow for one thing,and the other the kit wasnt very accurate.no complains to the ecelica staff here it is a very well made kit its just that the rear bumper and the side skirts were off big time.The sides looked like the laid them wrong out of the mold becuase they were bowed outward so the guy had to slice them and re-fiberglass them.And the rear bumper was just off all over the place.He had to slice it in 4 pieces and fit each piece to the car and hes going to have to fiberglass all of it together once all 4 pieces fit frown.i love the kit and the urethane front was pretty much perfect fit and like i said the kit was very well made not really any air bubbles in it at all.Just thought id share guys and to say i miss my baby frown

with the blitz sides (since they come up so high), here are two solutions:

Spray them with water and lay them outside on an angle, siting in the sun - so that they get bent back into the correct position to fit your car's curves. Prop them upside down across an "L" angle... the will slowly bend by the end of the day, back into the position that you want... we do this with body kit fronts all the time (except instead of proping them up and letting gravity do all the work, we put a heavy item on each side of the front, and bend it back the direction we need it to go in), for those that have been slightly warped during transport - since all the fronts are stacked on top of each other, something is bound to get slightly distorted at sometime - we just return it back to it's original form... just remember to spray it often wave

Also because the blitz side skirts rise so high - once you have them installed, drill another screw into the upper most part of the skirt, through to the body of your car... then to hide the screw, use putty and have the bodyshop re spray that area again - and like magic, the screw head is hidden and everything fits nice and tightly thumbsup
