    Couldn't wait! (still have my suit on as you can see in the pics!) Looks amazing!

    For those asking I got them skinned by a place round here that does them, done an awesome job. Price, too much!

    Seen these and was considering them but not a current priority.

    Are they simply plug & play?

    Hi, can you point me in the direction of the fixing screws. I would like to tighten mine up.

    Cheers.

    Yes mate,

    One under the top part of the triangle (grab the top of it and you will feel the hole leading up to it). 5mm allan key I think.
    One under the gear lever surround. Just pull it up at the front edge and the bolt is underneath. 8mm bolt
    One back towards the HVAC unit. Bit of a bugger to get to but just get a torch in there and you will see it. 8mm bolt.

    Hope that helps.

    In this pic, top mount is the HVAC one, middle you can see the bolt just sticking out, and bottom mount the one that goes under the gear surround.

    Still going to leave us in the dark as to who did these for you (unless I've missed it - possible)?

    Looks epic by the way!

    One mod I love on my car is the black rings on the grill, I want to do the boot badge to, anyone know how to remove it? I got stage 1 revo last weekend and have fitted rns-e this weekend. I am thinking about the spacers.
