Yeah this really sucks. I was gonna go to the body shop to get my body kit installed tomorrow too... The lady that hit me, hit me pretty hard but there was not much damage done to the rear. My front is damaged because it slided under the CR-V's tires in front of me. Ugh, this sucks...

This is what it looks like right now. Sorry for bad quality :[

Good news: Picked up Mugen Visors today.

Bad news: A woman rear ended me causing me to hit another car and that car hit another car. My passenger side headlights are broken and my hood is curled up and my bumper is pushed back. Ugh :[
Sorry to hear about the collision. I was just wondering where u got the mugen visors from and how much? Thanks

Damn dude that sucks... hope your ok...
But maybe psykotic is right... maybe sell the nextmod kit and have insurance send you a check for the damages. Both could add up enough to buy that spoon/phase bumper.

I picked them up from a member off of here.

Damn man, that really sucks. I would push her ass under the CR-V now lol. Look at the plus side, have her pay for EVERYTHING to be fixed up, including the kit install ;)
LOL, I wish.

Sorry for reviving but I have a few questions :(

So finally got the car fixed and installed the Nextmod kit (Pics in Image Gallery). The body shop I went to only screwed the body kit onto the bumper in the wheel well (not sure what you call that). Is that normal because the middle part of the rear lip (between the reflectors) is pretty much hanging down from the bumper about 2inches with no screws there at all. Sorry if this is kinda unclear.

Im currently having a shop do my kit and there charging me 1100 to paint and fit it? The shop got recommended to me by a friend. But the owner said that they have to mold the kit to my bumpers or some non-sense? They didnt want to drill holes in the kit or something cus they didnt want to crack it??
does this sound right to you? im gonna go down later this week to see what the hell there doing...

I don't think they should be molding your body kit to your bumper. That's not what should be done. They should be screwing your body kit onto your bumper. I got mine done for $850, they took my car in to match the paint as best as they can, they patched up the body kit in places where the fiberglass was thin, they installed the body kit and the visors for me.

is the next mod kit suppose to come with pre drilled holes?
I don't think so. Mine didn't come with any pre-drilled holes.

But when my body shop put the kit on they left this part hanging about 1-2" below the bumper and it's not screwed on or anything. I'm not sure if it's normal.

no that's not normal, have them put screws on the kit where the exhaust tips are.
