Could a competent body shop swap the regular R body kit for the sports body kit?<p>I am considering finding someone to swap with me which would require repaint as the Magic Blue is pretty rare.<p>Do you guys think a good shop could remove both kits and reinstall using the same parts?<p>Would allow me and another to swap body kits without much in parts costs.<p>Is this <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> ?<p>Thanks

Not really sure what your question is. You want to put the sports kit on your R? Any competent bodyshop can do it. <p>BTW, there is only one kit for the R and that's the sports kit.

No, I have the sports body kit, I want to pull it off and put the regular trim on. I know there is no other "kit" but no sure what to call it.<p>The question is could the pieces be pulled from two cars a standard trim R and a Sport Body Kit R (my car) and swapped?<p>Saves on body parts and we only pay labor.

Technically yes, but dont know how much a shop will charge you. Your fron pieces are not only riveted on,which will leave small hole sunder front bumper but the are adhesive taped on, it takes some time to clean all the residue off, also therear piece and upper side pices are double side tape on as well. More trouble then its worth, in my opinion.

Not really sure what you are assking, but I have an Evolve BOdy kit on my Magical BLue 2005 S60R. I saved the front and rear stock bumpers for the the car (no body kit). They saw only 1000 miles, so if you are looking for those...let me know. I would sell them to you.
