Mtech 2 general questions.

Anyone have an idea how much the entire kit, minus the rear spoiler weighs?

Does the front valance bolt over the stock valance?

Are the front and rear bumpers simply covers or entire bumpers? How do they compare weight wise vs standard plastic bumpers?

How much do the lower sideskirts weigh, and are they available seperately?

I like the entire kit, but I won't be able to use the side door skirts as my fenders and rear quarters are/will be flared. I'm also trying to be exremely weight concious with the car as it's an autox car. But I also want it to look nice.
I'd like to install the lower side skirts, front and rear bumpers if they are lighter, and the lower rear valance. I really, really like the Mtech 1 rear spoiler, even over the Mtech 2. And would like to find one of those eventually.

Your right. I took the lazy way out.


But you know if everone searches and never reposts the forums would die. Cept' for a bunch of political stuff.


So far I've got that the bumpers REPLACE the stockers.

The Mtech2 front does bolt over the stock valance (kinda knew this one but was crossing my fingers and hoping)

The rear valance bolts on as once piece with the rear Mtech2 bumper. Didn't realize this one at all....The replicas being a seperate piece threw me off.

Are you talking about the fiberglass bumper support? If so, then yes.

Yep, I was asking for him, so he knew that you could reskin a plastic bumper to a mtech2 with just the outer cover. use old shocks, bolts, etc.

so the weight on the bumpers should be negligable. Check realoem, IIRC they list part shipping weights there.
