  • A DIY Guide to Body Kit Installation 11 January 2013

    Installing a new body kit on your ride is the way to go, especially if you are going for a more customized look. Aside from the cost of the parts, you also have to pay for labor if you decide to take this project to a garage. So, to help you cut cost, it is advisable to do it yourself than to hire people to do it for you-especially if you have considerable experience with cars.

    Required skill level: Advanced

    Needed tools and materials

    1. Lacquer thinner
    2. Adhesion promoter
    3. Lint-free cloth
    4. 200-grit sandpaper
    5. Welding machine

    Painting

    Assuming that you already bought a body kit for the specific make, model, and year of your car; the best way to begin the installation process is by painting the parts. The body kit usually comes primered with high-gloss gel coat finish but is not pre-painted. It is better to paint the kit prior the installation process to assure that the coating is even.

    Feel the surface of the body kit, if you feel any coarseness, apply lacquer thinner to the area with a lint-free cloth. The coarseness may be caused by an uneven coating of gel finishing. If the problem persists, sand it with a 200-grit sandpaper. After doing that; apply adhesion promoter to the surface, let it stand for an hour, and apply automotive paint. Let the automotive paint dry before you mount it to the vehicle's body.

    Mounting

    The tricky part to mounting the body kit is the irregularity of the bolts, screws, and clips you will be using. It is best to measure the kit first against the mounting area to decide the best set of attachments that will work. Welding will very probably be required.

    Mount the parts according to the way you feel is best. You might need to sand the mounting areas a bit for it to fit appropriately.

    Testing

    To make sure that the body kit is installed right, let your car run for a test drive. Maintain normal speed and be wary of any squeaking sounds that might be present. If you don't hear any sound at all, then it means that your ride is good to go.
