    Hi everyone, I'm not quite sure what category this thread comes under, but this one seemed to suit it best. I'm looking at getting a body kit for my VS to give it a bit more style, the range is pretty good, I'm set on the VX Clubsport kit for my VS. I'd like to start by asking does anyone have a place they'd recommend to get the body kit supplied and/or painted/fitted (I'm in Adelaide, SA)?

    And my next question is, I'd like a kit that is stands out more, different from what's standard. Is there anywhere that may build a custom body kit?

    Thanks in advance...

    Custom kits are pretty expensive, and sometimes look a little weird.

    I suggest Adelaide Special Vehicles by the way man. Thats where I got my kit from. Great job for colour coding the paint as well :thumbsup:

    Cheers guys, I think you're right. I've priced around, it's expensive for the custom kits. And thanks, yep I'm going with Adelaide Special Vehicles :) . I'm getting a VX Clubsport kit, my VS is white so I'll do the whole kit white, no silver or grey in it. But I'm thinking maybe a black mesh behind the front bumper? How do you think that'll look?

    Cool thanks, should go well with the black tint on the windows. I wouldn't mind having the door handles sprayed white as well at some point

    Hey JustPozn, yep I'm still interested thanks. I have the car booked in already though through ASV, booked it in on Friday, I'm taking it in this week and it should be ready by this weekend. A custom kit would have been awesome though. What sort of other work can you do though? Just fibreglass? I don't know whether it would be going too far but eventually I wouldn't mind modifying the front guards to put the side indicators in like the VZ. No idea how it would look though, I'll have to photoshop it onto the car once the kit is on. Cheers again for the offer, it's appreciated :)

    Thanks again, would definitely be interested in finding out the cost to have those inserts and indicators put into my front guards. Would like to see some pics of your VN with them, that would look awesome :thumbsup:

    I just saw your car on your VN2NV forum, that's a nice VN mate, looks cool! Have you painted the kit yet? Love your work on the car, and yeah those indicators are awesome, how much did it cost you to do those?
