    hehe, yeah. I was one of the earliest pre-orders. Waited a long time to buy a body kit 'cause I didn't like any of the other ones. Soon as I saw this one I jumped on it. When it got shipped out an arrived at the body shop it was serial number 0003.

    well, shipping is shipping. If they have the pieces in stock and don't take too long processing in the warehouse, it shouldn't take too long. I just can't really tell you how long it will take. When I originally got the full kit I took part in the pre-order before they were first made so it was a couple months before I got it. Had to replace the front bumper only from an accident later and that only took like a week to get here.

    Not long when I ordered my new front bumper. Less than a week. It probably depends on how fast they are at forwarding your order and how many they have in stock.

    I have only ordered directly from RK sport since they are the creators of the kit. I don't even know who else carries it and if it's a copy or just a distributor for RK sport.

    I know the kit doesn't re-use some of the clips for the side skirts that the factory panels use. It doesn't have the attachments molded into them like the stock rockers, they used double sided tape instead. The rest of the stuff was just regular stuff that you re-use like body clip nuts and 10mm bolts for the bumper and such. Some stuff I improvised like adding a few extra sheet metal screws around the inside of wheel arch. Also on the front of the fender by the headlight (the part on an angle) the stock bumper goes on alignment pin right there. I found it left a bit of a gap with the aftermarket bumper so I replaced the pin with another clip nut and used a 10mm bolt like on the rest of the fender attachments, and that drew it up nice an tight. I just did a lot of little tweaks like that because I wanted it to look as good as possible.

    Yes, it is a direct fit in place of the stock body panels. As with any body kit though, even a quality one, it requires a little tweaking to make it fit the best since no two cars are exactly the same. You should always test fit them and pre-drill your holes in the correct place before painting, and I added a few extra screws in some places around the fenders and wheel arches to make it fit just a bit tighter.
