A Blokey Afternoon in the Garage


Why not get your mates together in the garage this weekend and have a bit of fun with your car?

Body kits are available in a wide range. You’ll most likely have an idea of what you want to achieve to make your car stand out from the crowd. Some accessories can be practical as well as looking cool! Body kits include ground effects, such as skirting, that divert and control the amount of air that passes through under your car, improving down force.

If you want to get a “racy look” body kits come with instructions on how to adjust and customize your car to give it that “racy” appearance. Wings and spoilers are also popular body kits. They can either be placed in front or in the rear of the car to reduce aerodynamic drag and increase traction during acceleration. There are also kits featuring customized hoods, fenders, side mirrors, mags and windows.

There are generally two kinds of kit available – fibreglass and urethane. Most motorists prefer the fibreglass because they fit better and can easily be repaired. Fibreglass also looks better than urethane when finished because of its compatibility with paint. The advantage of urethane is that it is more durable and resistant to slight impacts. The downside is that it’s more expensive and more difficult to repair a damaged piece.

Make a day of it. It’s the sort of activity garages were made for!
