logos on kits are not copy-righted, i had this told to be by veilside, it's best to check with the manufacturer as to who is an authorized distributer. aerotrends out of florida is a reputable distributer and has great prices, that's the place i ordered my bomex kit from. thumbsup

Check out the offical website of veilside company. There is a list of dealer's name

There's a very general way of seeing the difference between the real deal, and sucky-sucky glassfiber copies:

The REAL kit fits.
The REPLICA fits..like shit.

Stating the obvious. It's what I'm here for..

Like celicat23 said:

true, but the replica kits that GroupBuy4Celica have a great fitment. close to the original, especially his Veilside 1 replica kit. thumbsup
