the proper way to 'bolt' that on would be to jqck your gas cap up, drive your car out from under it, drive that one under it , and lower it gently.....IMHO

Bolt on nose, bolt on rear bumper, bolt on fenders.

Rocker panels and door piece I dont know. I am sure a ton of body work is involved as well to make it fit correct.

Whats are you thinking?

one of the worst bolt on kits on the market, if you want a C5 buy a C5. The C4.5 kit's fit and fishish is terrible, it will turn a nice 5' car into a great 30' car if your blind in one eye and need cataracks removed in the other.

I can wear Brad Pitt's clothes, but it ain't gonna change the fact that I'm a mangey old hound. Not that being a M.O.H. is a bad thing mind you.

It would cost less in the long run to sell the C4 and buy a C5. That looks like crap. Should have left it alone.

Be funny to do it in reverse. say a Z06 (427) to look like a c-4
and have some real fun with that.

$6,500 OBO. The parts, labor and paint is more than that.

Reminds me of the yellow trd.
