147 body styling

Hi all,

I am looking to add some body styling to my 147. The products are Lester and include the following: side skirts, front bumper extension, rear bumper extension and rear spoiler.

Has anyone used the products before and are they easy to install??

The products seem well reasonably priced, does that show in the quality.

The site I have seen them is called 'mad motors', Anybody used them.

Any ideas on cost for spraying, I have metallic paint.

Many thanks in advance for any ideas or info

I have GTA side skirts from Lester.

Not much to talk about, I had them sprayed and then I glued them on a secured by some screws. They fit fine. Not great, but fine. I think they are about 5mm longer than the sills so in rear they a little overlap the wheel arch and the inner wing carpet. And I needed to grind a little the vent holes in the sill as they were not even and there were some resin residues.
I have them on for 5 years now and no damage or cracking. Just the passengers entering a car tend to hit them with the leg what sort of damages the paint on them.

My recommendation is to try them on before painting, then maybe adult or grind potential problem places and only than have they painted.
