eBay precut clear bra's

I was about to purchase one like this
http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...id=29909095446

After washing my car and noticing that I already have some chips on my newly painted front bumper not even a month ago,
But I wanted to ask if anybody has any experience with these kits, good or bad, I am pretty good installing vinyl, I have done many parts in CF di-noc and done tint on some cars so I am mainly worried about the quality and fittment of the kits,

Also any vendors here sell these kits and can they beat the price?

Thanks in advance.

I dunno man, I believe i would just pony up the extra dough and have it profesionally installed. At least thats what i did, but if you feel confident then i say give it a shot. If you mess up your just SOL.

Yeah but $700-800 is way to much, I am pretty decent applying vinyl, like I said my main worry is the fit of these kits,

But we will see, I just order it.

I got it installed, it was a pain it the arse, specially the mirrors, The hood and the fender pieces where fine, took about 5 min each and they fit perfectly, the bumper piece took about 3 hours and did not fit too well, I could not get the holes for the fogs/DRL's to line up so I ended up cutting the left over, then the passenger side of the bumper got screwed up by my brother who was helping me and I had to cut some of it off, but I have a replacement coming, all in all I will not recommend these kits for a inexperience individual, you will yell and curse in frustration and definitely screw something up

I will take pics when I get a chance.
