Can sombody answer this question for me? I ordered the xenon kit for my bird.'95 LX. Came today finally, but man I'm shocked of the material, the front and the back piece came in one box and hell the back piece is folded over 3/4's of the way in half. Is this material correct? I just visioned them as soild pieces, not bending pieces. No instructions came with it either....geez! Can someone fill me in?


Thanks
Kev

it polyurethane.

it can be fold like that that's why it cost more than fiberglass and it's a more desire piece for bodykit.

just in case you bump into something it'll bend instead of cracking.

I'm fairly sure xenon ships them all with the single exhaust cutout and you have a body shop cut out the second. Like Casper said, they are made of poly, hence the flex, it comes in handy. As for mounting, you can do it their way, or do it the way I'm intending to. Their way (I have this right now) you sand down the xenon lip, use some 3M adhesive promoter on both sides (bumper and xenon pieces), stick on double stick tape, push together and use screws. Now the way I'm intending to do is get some body fuser and use that instead of the 3M tape to make the bumpers one piece, then pop a few rivets through to tighten, and finish with some flexible filler before painting. Be aware too, body kits aren't just slap on and call it good like they'd have you believe. It does take some work to get them mounted properly and they aren't designed to fit 100% perfectly, there might be a few spots that fit loosely or small gaps, that sorta thing.

Since I don't have the place to do this anyways, I'm going to the body shop and let them tackle the job. Thanks for info.

Okay hot glue won't last, unless it's a chemical agent that actually melts the urethane of the bumper and the poly urethane of the ground effect into one solid piece

Ordered it off ebay...Auto Accessory4u. Actually in the end, everything worked out with the order. Why I thought it was wrong is due to the fact for the rear valance they give you the option to order for V8 or V6. It only had one cut out for exhaust and I orderd for the V8 to have two, come to find out, looking from the inside of valance there is a cut out place for the other hole. So all is fine and ready for install.
