I'm a ricer for the weekend...
I was finally able to take advantage of a break in the weather. It took all day (my friend who was going to help magically got sick) to install my X1 fenders and Bomex front. I had to drill out all the holes for the X1s and cut back the inner liner a little more for my doors to clear it.

I'm happy with the fitment, it is very good for all three pieces. It isn't quite perfect though. I also got a JL Audio 250 watt sub amp put in there, but forgot to take pictures of that. My sub really kicks now!

I've got to wait till monday to drop off my car at the paint shop. I'll do as little driving till then as possible.

Not hard, just time-consuming. There are some shy bolts in there. But you'll save sooo much money doing it yourself, plus you'll know if any areas are going to cause problems. Most body/paint shops don't really like installing aftermarket things themselves and charge too much for labor.

There actually isn't a gap between them, that is just a yellow line that runs along the edges. It is genuine Bomex and I got it from http://www.aerotrends.com/ They sell both replicas and genuine, and genuine is actually cheaper than the price listed on their site. Just give them a call and tell them you want the real one.

Well I dropped it off today. I miss my baby already cry

Hopefully it will be done by Friday. I got the shop to do a two tone; they'll be painting the hoodstripe black (no longer vinyl) and the center opening in the bumper black as well. Then later on the shop will hook me up with vinyl on the canards for a cleaner line. yourock yourock yourock
