The first step of going with a wide-body kit is dry-fitting the body kit as a whole. As you will hang part by part, you will notice that some may not align properly at the beginning, but when you add up the rest, they start to make sense. As an installer, keep in mind that composite parts can get easily deformed (for example, when they were stored incorrectly) and some of them may need time to get back to their initial dimensions/shapes.
If you installed nearly all of the parts and in some places, parts seem to “go a bit off” you can easily fix that by applying some heat (we recommend a heat gun instead of a hair-dryer) to the part that needs to be bent a bit. Once aligned as desired, you can use a clamp or some ducktape to block the part in the desired position and leave the part to cure. Usually, after we hang all of the parts on the car, we left them for a day untouched so they can work a bit. Later on, we proceeded with aligning the gaps, sanding down the exceeding material.
When all of the body kit parts were installed, gaps were initially aligned, we proceeded with installing all of the OEM accessories like grilles, headlights, taillights, wheels – just to confirm that the fitment is as good as we thought and to make some final corrections and tweaks prior taking off the parts for preparation for painting the parts.
Dry fitting is strongly recommended because you can easily catch all of the imperfections and simply remove them before applying paint. That’s our secret to building a perfectly fitted car.
