    Body Kit DIY Mod opinion

    Hey guys

    Im always up for a challenge spesh when it comes to modding. Ive been looking what i can do with the Bee but as ive found out theres not much out there.

    Now as you may be aware ive got a Irmi from spoiler which is a tad lower than the xp model. My prob is that irmi dont do rears even tho there in the brochure. So im getting the xp rear lower spoiler fitted.

    Now hears the question do you think i would be able to fashion a decent extension using these on the rear to help lower it a tad to make the line of the front and rear spoiler look better??

    Well im getting the XP rear skirt fitted was thinking about fitting them to the corners of that poss with some modding to get it to look right.

    The look like this when fitted to the front. It i would prob loose the attachment and fit using bond/screw combo

    Hmm... kinda see what you're getting at, and it could work. Be prepared to do a lot of chopping and building to get it to look right tho (which I'm sure you are)

    Interesting little project that. As Tangoid says be prepared to to a bit of chopping about to fit them.
    I like the idea but I would be inclined to make them a bit more noticable than in your rear piccy.

    This is very rough. Im trying to balance the irmi front with the XP back.
    Im thinking it would look alright but its really hard to say with out actually buying them and trying it. Ive spotted these for £5 on flea bay. Its not ended yet so price could go up. MMMMMM its £5 should i risk it anyway??
