I'm finally finishing my 5 door type r trim conversion.

Just fitted rear bumper and put the rear arch trim on, and the clips don't reach to car at the top of the wheel arch, so it doesn't secure in place.

What have other people done for this?
I've used some plastic epoxy 2 part glue to put a bit of glue on the clips so they hold in place.

Car currently sat on driveway with clamps holding the trim while the glue dries...

How much did you pay for all the trim if you dont mind me asking??

I used some black adhesive to stick it to the body. (not the bumper just the metal panel)
I still have the gap when the door is open but ive left it. Just slid some rubber on the edge of the arch trim to make the gap smaller.
You too Lee??

Sorry as to not be as helpful.

my back ones i won on ebay for around £23 the pair posted. The fronts cost me £50 the pair.
Skirts were £125 the pair brand new from a honda dealer on ebay.
Front and rear splitters cost me £40 the pair.

The exhaust trims approx £30 each and reflectors £40 the pair..

I used silicone or the like and left it clamped for a few hours. Thats where the top of the rear arch wont clip on to the body..

The skirts and the arches have a gap. The biggest gap is the skirt at the bottom. The arch gap is quite small.

I extended the top of my sideskirt so i have no gap there. Lots of people leave the gap as it is! you cant see it with the door shut. My plan B was to get some rubber door sill trim and slide it onto the edge of the skirt where the gap is. But plan A worked for me.

Well if you think about it the rear panel on the Type-R/S is like having the door shut on the 5 door. When you open the door the bodywork behind the door is set further back..if you weld the back door shut there wouldnt be a problem. Opening the door is like pulling the skin away on a Type-R.

Well if you look at the arch, from the 7 o clock position to the 11 o clock position is where the door is. From 11 o clock onwards the body and rear bumper are the same. The bumper is the same bumper with a different splitter/bottom half

You got a great deal there for the bodykit, I saw a quote from Gordons Honda for everything for £650 which included colour coding which I thought wasn't too bad.... (I'm sure Honda was selling the skirts for £104 per side ???)

But not sure what to do, wait for something to come up on fleabay or go to the dealers...?

you are probably looking at around £300 to get the whole kit painted if you buy it bit by bit like i did.

I dread to think what the splitters cost new, but they go for nothing second hand! people struggle to sell a pair for £50 nowdays!

I was on a budget so piecing it together bit by bit suited me. It didnt take as long as i thought though!
