    Hey guys. Just wondering if there is anywhere that sells VR/ VS guards with the vz guard flutes in them? Or if it would have to be a custom job? Swear ive seen them advertised somewhere, just cant think of where...

    Dunno about buying them, but there was a guy in a Gold VS at Easternats who has the VZ flares in his front guards. It looked like a custom job as they sat really high on the guard.

    The actual VZ SS Flutes are about $110ea ($220 for the pair) from Holden. Thats what i paid anyway, and i got them put in and smoothed so there is no join line. Cost about $800 on top, so around $1020 for the part, cut them into the guard, smooth it all up and paint and re-fit to the car.

    Shop around dude, and you'll find a good price. On a biased note though, i think that the smoothed look is really good, and also something different, as it eliminates the join lines. Hope this helps you dude.

    Why do you think i paid heaps. They were cut into the guards, smoothed so there was no join lines and then resprayed and re-fitted. What should i have paid?

    Dude, thats really cheap, i shoulda come to adelaide to get mine done:D:D:D
    Mine was alot cheaper than the next best quote i had locally anyway, and i am happy with the end result. I didnt pay $1020 either buy the way that was the cost, one of the guards was being resprayed by insurance, so it only cost me about $650 out of my pocket.
