    Deliverd today, all excited lol!

    the reiger style kit i said about last week just turned up, all wrapped up and brand new, im very pleased with it as its all very nice and not gonna need to much prep work before fitting. just trial fitted the rear part and it fits like a glove so im hopeing the front will to. not so sure wether i like the skirts tho, if they fit well i will put them on and see how they look, if not i may just mod and spray my standard ones!

    ive never attempted to fit anytyhing like this before altho i seem handy at most things like this, im still a little bit worried about fluffing it up. if any 1 has fitted these before and blended them in like i want to, and has any pics ect i would be very greatfull, or if any1 has seen a guide and could point me in the right direction??
    just not sure what bonding materials i shud be useing and if i shud strengthen the joints from behind ect. all advice appreciated. cheers guys.

    heres some piccys..


    .

    cant wait to get started! oh and before u say it, they are new and not been sprayed black, there fiberglass and they have used a black gel coat to finish them.
    now on my 7th vaux and its a van baby!!!

    Will look good pipz. As for what to use, Sikaflex is highly recommended, very strong stuff.

    Now get it fitted and sprayed

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Dont do it yourself, get a pro to do it and look right.

    Blending them in is a mistake too - will crack on the first impact and look gash
