Okay guys, I was talking to Scott Hart yesterday at IPD. He told me the following regarding the MS Design stuff. So FYI.

He is expecting 10 S60 kits in the next two weeks that he ordered, along with grills, and some 40-series stuff and some extra S60 front spoilers.

Of those 4 kits are already sold to a dealership in TX called Autobahn Volvo who is planning on building a pseudo R on some S60s that they'll presumably be selling in limited numbers (4) off the showroom floor.

Also, he orders about once a quarter from MS Design, which is more often than I had thought. So, if you end up wanting to buy a kit, it's not that few and far between.

Just to warn you people, if you would order this kit I suggest to let them paint it with a flexible primer else the front spoiler is ruined in a few months.
I have one on my S60 at it look terrible after a few months.

Yup, I think I can relate. Last time they didn't put flex on Prospero's 850, the paint flaked off right a way when the bumper just kinda sat on the curb thingy. Not a pretty sight.

Most of the better body shops can use flex agent and account for the difference. It's not tough, but for an inexperienced shop....you get what you pay for I guess.

Errrr..

Those trims need to be prep'd nicely to be painted and achieved the same finish as rest of your body. Yeah, he could leave the trim on and do EVERYTHING while the trim is on the car. An skillful shop can probably do that without screwing up anything else, but it would be a lot easier just to take out the trim and shoot them while they are off the car, wouldn't you think?

yea i see what u are saying about taking them off. however, if he takes them off, there is a 2-sided tape on the back and it will leave an inch gap when he puts them back on. therefore it will have all this build up in the gap. plus, the bumper peices dont come off becuase they are attached to the whole bumper.
