    32 hours on a install for a body kit (extreme dimensions) tuffest kit i've ever done had to weld steal rods to the frame of the car to get the bumpers to stay in on the edges to line up with the fenders
    side skirts had to be riveted on and filled to hide the rivets and the seems

    i'm in the process right now.

    OEM sideskirts, evo5 non-wide rear bumper... but the fitment is spot on if i take the rear bumper support off.

    Nice work though, I hope your friend appreciates it. The next step with my CRX is going to involve attaching the rods to the chassis to keep the stock body lined up.

    Keep up the good work! Wanna see more posts like this from you and your skills.

    you get what you pay for...
    too bad they didn't bring you something better to start with
    i do believe extreme dimensions has a shitty rep for some of their stuff

    did you change your username?

    well i'm tradinga 93 ex coupe for the work on this vw
    the car is in great condition but it has a small knock from the lower end
    so i figure i'll drop the pan change the bearings and see where i get and if that dont work i'm trying to get another engine from someone on here i think i'm going to get the engine first then fix the other in the car i have a feeling that theres more wrong with the motor then i think but who knows i wont know till next week

    anyway if theres anyone in the CT area that needs work done let me know i do good work and i'm cheap i even trade for work too lol........ but it's got to be a good trade though.......

    i have two exhaust fans pulling air out and a filter on the other side of the garage letting air in your basic cross draft - and i wet the floor down it pulls the dust down
    believe it or not my paint jobs come out better then alot of poeple can do with a nice shop and spray booth
