Do you notice anthing wrong with this body kit?

My rear kam kit came in and there's defect on it. I notice it and it bothers me. But do you guys notice it, if you could find it?

Hell yea it bugs me. If I ever did get it installed like that, it will bother me everytime I see it. Hopefully "spoilers4less" will take it back and send me a new one. They better not charge me for shipping too. Thanks for for help guys. thumbsup

It's a urethane kit, personally I would probably just send it back since it is still unprimed. However you can fix a sag like that by reinforcing the inside of the bumper with a piece of metal. My kaminari front had a sag in the mouth because I left it sitting in a funny position for so long, but I just took a strip of metal, bent it into a L-shape and attached it to the bumper. *problem solved*. If you put a big can like the tanabe on your car, my advice would be to put heat tape above the can so you don't have to deal with the effects of the heat on the paint and the bumper itself.

Just send it back. The guys at the Kam company were really great with working with me on little issues and some big giant ones like a huge ass scratch in my front bumper from shipping.

No, it's the real deal. It has is serial # on the bottom and kaminari printed on the inside. I bought it form spoilers 4 less but kaminari was the one who shipped it.

if they wont take it back, that is something that could be fairly easily fixed. a bodyshop could fill that easy.

I tried stretching it back but it won't move. It's bent like that pretty stiff. And this is not the only problem. The bottom of the kit near the valence is bent in , you can't really notice it in the pictures. And when I test fit it, the right side sticks out further than the left. Hard to believe this is authentic huh? When it was packed into the box, it looked like they force it in. I also bought a front kam from the same online-store and it's perfect.

If they dont take it back and replace for free, Id track down a Kaminari phone number and talk to someone about that.

I have contacted Kaminari, claiming a new rear !
This should be covered by their lifetime warranty.
The dealer wouldn't agree with me that there was something wrong with the rear

Yea thats where I'm going to get my car hooked up. His name is mike, right? My house is like 5 mins from there. Also, one of my friend needs his car repainted. Do you think he will give me some kind of a deal.
