Question on Installing Body Kit
So I got my kit installed (WHOO-HOO) but then they didn't take off the center underbody panel... They actually left it on and zip-tied it together because the center pieces are actually two pieces. They just zip-tied it together and it seems to be holding and everything. Just wondering if I should just get it taken off or is it okay just left on like that? Thx!

if its on snug then leave it... zip ties will hold just as well as those cheap plastic clips toyota uses.

Yeah it should be just fine! We'd love to see some pics too!


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

no leave it there...
and the underbody plastic can stay, if it reaches the bumper, then it can be attached to it..

otherwise, I guess it would come off...some bumpers may not extend real far back.

VSGTS14, now that i think about it, i would also reccommend leaving it if you can. But it all really depends where you live. Out here is California, it i don't think it would be of any problem.

It's not just for looks. If your plastics all fucked up and you can not connect it to your new front bumper this is the way to go my dear frend...

NO, you don't. There is a space where you can reach up and undo the filter.

I'm not sure I understand your ?

I'm saying you can put your hand through this hole and change the oil without removing the c-one underbody panel.

On the plastic underbody panel that comes with the car, it already has a space, does it not?
