its really not dificult at all, best tip with kits is to take your time and probably another pair of hands to stabalise things while your marking out and after while you bolt up. bonnet scoop are you actually going to use it or be a extra bit of weight that does nothing?

at end of day you can get it just as good as a pro you just have to take ur time, mark things out. as its said, measure multiple times cut once, dont measure once and cut multiple times.

as for places that fit them, any crash shop/panel beater can fit them or i know a few places down here north.

It's easy to fit them....It's just hard to fit them good. Make sure you don't settle for a half ass job and It'll look great. Most of these fibreglass kits need a lot of work before fitting and painting. If it's beyond you're field of expertise, get someone who knows what they're doing to do it because nothing looks worse than an ill fitting bodykit

Cheers guys, il probably just do it & get a mate to help out, fitted one on a mates car but that was ages ago. the paint on the car is a bit shyt and has a few scratches, the interior is thrashed stock exec but the engine and drive train is FRESH AS" but the kit will look nice on it. iv had a picture of this VL in my head for years, owned three other vl's 2 of which were turbo's but had to sell them and have been holding onto this kit for a while now just waiting to be slapped on to a VL.When a clean up the interior and can afford to give it a paint job it will look "FULLY HEKTIK BRO" LOL.
These are a few pics of my old VL's

Have fun with the kit! All I can say is dummy fit after dummy fit. The hardest is the front bar and the front corner skirt and front door moulds not to rub when the door is opening and closing bottom and the side.
