Does anyone know if there's a thread somewhere on how to install a Kenstyle Kit? I just picked mine up today and have no idea how to install this kit. Any help or DIY's will be very helpful.

Thanks

The only thing I can think of, if it's designed for the xB, is a straight bolt-on. I know there may need to be a bit of shaving, but everything should line up just like the stock kit.

Koo.....the shaving is already done and it's painted. I just need to bolt it on. The problem is that I don't know where all of the bolts are, etc.

I'm pretty sure it's simple. Jack the car up, and check the mounting points, if it all lines up, use the stock hardware and voila! Instant more hotness xB.

The front lip is poly and the sides and rear are fiberglass. I know that the original owner had it on for a month and fitted properly.

You didn't test fit it before you painted it. Goodluck wid that.
He Bought It From Another Box Owner...
Same Color As Him...

It Should Just Bolt Up!!
^^ Yup.....everything should fit like a glove. I just don't know how to put the glove on....:eek:

But with this info, I think I get it on myself.....hopefully!

Well I ran into my first roadblock tonight. I have the front lip on (fairly simple). But when I attempted to put on the side skirts....it seemed like it didn't fit at all. Maybe I'm not doing something right. I'll have to take it to a shop so I don't break the damn thing.

As for the rear lip....I'm still undecided if I'm going to cut another hole in the rear for my dual exhaust or if I'm just not going to put it on at all. I don't want to take a chance with not being able to sell this in the future due to the dual exhaust outlets.

Ughh.....and to top it off....I can't get a hold of the original seller to see if he still has the brackets for extra support on all of the lips.
