I dont know how a body kit would work out cheaper... ??? :confused:

The cheapest parts would be second hand originals... there's more of those in supply for the wreckers to beat each other down on price...! But private wrecks are the ones to get even cheaper parts from.

even if you put skirting on it you would still need to get the side fixed, as they stay on and would make the skirting not fit IMO..
