How does a Duraflex Body Kit Install?
Most bumpers from Duraflex will install using the OEM mounting hardware. For instance when you remove the stock bumper cover the bolts and and mounting brackets will swap over to the new bumper. For instance in some situations modifications will need to be made to the brackets or the part. The result will then allow the installer to achieve acceptable panel gaps and fitment. For this reason we always suggest doing a dry fit with the part. This ensures before you drill or alter it in the event there is a significant fitment issue the manufacturer warranty can be used.
Panels such as side skirts and spoilers mount in place using simple bolts or self tapping screws.
Fenders are installed using the stock bolts and brackets. First of all when installing fenders on the vehicle the bolts are fitted in place loosely. Secondly when in position the fender will require alignment. This allows the installer ability to correct panel gap before tightening all the bolts to final spec.
Do Duraflex Body Kits need body work before paint?
All fiberglass based body kits and components need finishing work prior to installation. Body kits are produced from a negative mold. The surface will always have some imperfections that need to be corrected. Each part has to be sanded and body worked. This is how you achieve paint-able surface.
To fix body kit imperfections block sanding allows for minor flaws in the finish to be highlighted. Additionally any imperfections you find during sanding then get filled using a glazing body filler.
The body filler is used to correct pin holes, low spots and other blemishes to achieve a perfect finish once sanded smooth. Finally you can then proceed to paint after the panel is straight and perfected. Your installer will need to sand every square millimeter in order to get a show quality finish. Your paint work laid down on top so body work must be precise.
In conclusion the better your prep work work is the more superior the final product.
