I've bought a pair of side sills and a rear bumper, all Vx XP kit.

So all they need is painting and fixing, well the painting side is impossible for me to do so I'll take that job to a local bodyshop. So is it an easy job to fix it to the car?

The next question... do I (or the bodyshop) use the real Vx "glue" part no. 931 650 25 and more importantly how many tubes are required. Cos' it's £39-99 a tube and I've been told I need 3 tubes, if I bought 3 that would cost as much as the XP kit has cost!!! :eek: That's before painting.

How many tubes depends on if you want to spread it all around the bodywork like they do at the factory!

Well it's looking like Tigerseal right now, perhaps I could be slightly more careful than the factory... well I might give it a whirl!

You could get a blind man to do it and probably make less mess than the factory!

You've not got the Friday, Monday version... have you?

Anyway I've still got to get mine painted, so I've been a little careless with my words!

Something like that. Got all the glue cleaned off after the first couple of washes but it wasn't exactly a sign of quality workmanship! LOL

Good luck with fitting yours. I used to use Sikaflex for attaching side skirts and stuff years ago, sure you can still get that stuff.
