    1. will i need to uprate my boot struts

    I have because they were about £15 of ebay irmy ones

    2. do any companies spray and supply them?

    Normally easier just to get it sprayed at a local body shop, i can recomend one if you fancy a trip over to lye-stourbridge area

    3. what was the company who did them for around £80?

    Same place i got mine from, K&K styling but have closed now

    4. how do i change them over??

    simple enough, come with instructions, and i dont mind helping you if you want
