    R8 side panels?

    Are these side panels easily removable? I have to vinyl wrap a customers one next weekend and would prefer them to be off the car before i start! If not does anybody have a close up pic of the, particularly the edges?

    Thanks
    Chris

    It doesnt look too hard but there are some double sided adhesive strips that would need replace. You unstick the trim that you can see when you open the door from the side blades & remove, then there are two bolts to be removed. The unit then slides forward to remove. The side with the petrol cap needs the engine cover removed to free off the manual release & also when sliding forward there is an electrical connector & breather pipe. There is also option for adjusting the gap too.

    Best done on the car then? LOL
